    I walked in the store,the D.M. happened to be there & hired me on the spot, though I didn't start working for a week or so. I'd like to say that both of my District Managers were awesome & if not for everything else about the place it would be awesome if guys like that were given cart blanche to run the stores they manage without corporate getting in the mix.

    Operations Manager Interview

    Anonymous Employee in Joliet, IL
    Accepted Offer
    Neutral Experience
    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 4 weeks. I interviewed at Dollar Tree (Joliet, IL) in May 2014.

    Interview

    Started with a phone interview with the HR manager. 2nd interview was on site with the AGM and GM. General questions and situations. Final interview with Director was lengthy but basic.
    You need to be a subject matter expert and it helps to be able to opine on former employers, hurdles, and specific steps you used to overcome the issue.

    Interview Questions

    • Describe your level of interaction with your subordinate managers.   1 Answer

    Negotiation

    negotiation was very difficult. The GM presents the offer but can't negotiate. You spend a week going back and forth as he relays your concerns and requests with the Director.

    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied in-person. The process took 2 days. I interviewed at Dollar Tree (Chicago, IL).

    Interview

    Came in on my interview day. There was no interview just a slew of questions on if i could do the duties expected. Was immediately promoted to assistant manager right then and there(I had much previous experience but he didnt even care or ask about it, let alone look at my resume) Then I was expected to start work after my interview without any previous notice. gtfoh The turnover rate is tremendous. I left and was never seen there again simply because i enjoyed working in a warehouse over this place. Good Luck!

    Cashier Interview

    Anonymous Employee in Schaumburg, IL
    Accepted Offer
    Neutral Experience
    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied in-person. The process took 1 day. I interviewed at Dollar Tree (Schaumburg, IL) in August 2012.

    Interview

    Basicaly, my employer/manager just asked if I wanted a job. Five minuet interview and I was in.

    Interview was oddly simple, but again, Dollar Tree doesn't care how much exp. you have, only if you have flexable hours and crap. Not much for the interview process or anything, just a simple 1-1 talk.

    Negotiation

    I was told, "If you want the job you have it."

    My advice? NEVER SAY YES TO DOLLAR TREE.
