    Dollar Tree Cashier Interview

    Anonymous Employee in Taylor, TX
    Accepted Offer
    Neutral Experience
    Difficult Interview

    Application

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

    Interview

    Crazy no one knew what they were doing , couldn't get the computer to work. While manager was with me the employees left the customer standing waiting most just walked out of the store. Had managers that had no business being one. I worked in a bank four 6yrs was head teller and vault teller, checking account, CDs, iras, customer service always make them feel that you care and want to help them this bone heads are just to lazy to go check in the back for them!

    Negotiation

    I really liked mY job but you really have to be a people person, and know your water around retail
    And cash register, you have to be quick but consistent watch the customers because u have tho
    se few that like to pull a fast one on you

    If I could I would really love to come back just that I would like to be a manager because 17 and 18 yr olds managers that won't help with cashing out customers and the line is to the back wall and she sat in the office on her cell phone was unreal
