    Sales Associate Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Everett, PA
    No Offer
    Neutral Experience
    Easy Interview

    Application

    The process took 1 day. I interviewed at Dollar Tree (Everett, PA) in October 2011.

    Interview

    Basically told that you have to wear a green shirt and black pants and will only get paid $7.35 an hour and if you leave you should give 2 weeks notice. I was told that everyone leaves because you only get $7.35 an hour and it you want more money, that is the only way to do it. Apparently there are no pay increases ever unless the minimum wage goes up.

    The process took 1 day. I interviewed at Dollar Tree in December 2010.

    Interview

    The interview was very simple and fast. It lasted all of 10 minutes and was done standing in an isle helping the manager stock supplies. All I was asked was how well can I handle money, can I work fast, what hours can I work, and how patient am I.

    Neutral Experience
    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied in-person. The process took 1 day. I interviewed at Dollar Tree in July 2011.

    Interview

    I applied to a Dollar Tree store, and it took them more than a year to get back to me about it. I got a phone call one day, asking me if I was still looking for a job. I went in for the interview, and got the position right on the spot. I was not asked any difficult questions. The only questions asked were about my availability and my ability to stock merchandise. Neither one of these things were a problem.

    Interview Questions

    Negotiation

    You are not able to negotiate anything. Store Associates make minimum wage(at least at the store I work at), and that's it.

    I applied in-person. The process took 1 day. I interviewed at Dollar Tree in September 2010.

    Interview

    My interview was under 30 minutes. I got hired on the spot.
    I was asked basic questions about my past experiences in retail, and how I thought items should be organized on shelf: Labels facing towards customers or not? See...very basic common sense.
    And the usual, tell me about yourself...
    It was not hard at all; you can ace this interview with a little effort.

    Interview Questions

    Everything's $1. So, of course I didn't expect more than 8.00 p/h.

    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied in-person. The process took 1 day. I interviewed at Dollar Tree (Chesterfield, MO) in April 2009.

    Interview

    There was no real interview. It was actually more of a more detailed job description in which the hiring manager gave me a tour and introduced me to some of the staff. I did all the paperwork that day and started working within two days. I didn't even have to have a social security card right away for the background check, but I did have to provide it three days later. Also, there was no drug test as that was probably a good thing for the rest of the employees because I bet half of the employees would have failed it.

    Interview Questions

    • The pay is only $7.05 per hour, which is minimum wage. Would this be a problem for you?   Answer Question
    • Do you have any days that you need off for school?   Answer Question

    Negotiation

    There was no negotiation as it was for a minimum wage position ($7.05 per hour). I took it more out of desperation due to the fact that it was in April of 2009 and there were no other jobs I applied to that called me back.

    Sales Associate Interview

    Neutral Experience
    Easy Interview

    Application

    The process took 1 day. I interviewed at Dollar Tree (Stockton, CA) in May 2009.

    Interview

    Wasn't much of an interview. If they called you in you were most likely hired on the spot unless they did not like your appearance. My store manager is big on first impressions and he bases it off of appearance. Just come in to the interview well dressed and clean looking. They pretty much just tell you what their expectations are of you and the dress code and add you onto their system. You'll be working in a matter of 2 days or less after that.

    Interview Questions

    • There was honestly no questions asked. Other than are you available to work mornings, nights, weekends, and holidays.   Answer Question

    Negotiation

    They do not negotiate unless you are going in as management. All associates get minimum wage.
