    Sales Associate/Cashier Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Chicago, IL
    Declined Offer
    Neutral Experience
    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied in-person. The process took 5 days. I interviewed at Dollar Tree (Chicago, IL) in June 2016.

    Interview

    This store requires you to apply at the store your applying for. Printed out the application at home then took it into the store. This particular store is very slow getting back. One person said there was a position available and went in next day and another said they were not accepting applications. Turned in an application anyway in case there were positions available in the future.

    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied in-person. The process took 1 day. I interviewed at Dollar Tree (Chicago, IL) in March 2016.

    Interview

    I called one night to see if they had any openings for weekends or early mornings. I was given an interview the next morning. I got the job within 10 mins. The managers were very nice, and they were very upfront about the job. The only downside was that it seemed truncated due to it being during business hours.

    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!

    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.
