    Application

    I applied in-person. The process took 2 days. I interviewed at Dollar Tree in July 2016.

    Interview

    I showed up at the time the manager told me, then had to wait 30 minutes to be interviewed. That's understandable, as the District Manager had visited unexpectedly. The manager who called me ended up checking customers out while the DM interviewed me.

    Application

    I applied in-person. The process took 3+ weeks. I interviewed at Dollar Tree in June 2016.

    Interview

    I had to turn in two applications before the manager actually saw it. I had to call and go up to the store quite a few times before I got a date for an interview. The interview was pretty simple. I was asked if I knew how to count money, deal with unruly customers, and what would I do if I saw someone stealing something. Then she asked when I could start and for the first week I was a call-in.

    Interview Questions

    • What would you do if a customer is yelling and cursing at you about something?   Answer Question
    • If you see another employee taking something without paying for it what would you do?   Answer Question
    • Do you know how to count money? Have you ever handled a cash register?   Answer Question

    Negotiation

    There was no negotiation on pay for the sales associate position. The hours were extremely flexible as I was a college student and just told her what days and hours I was available. Other people had multiple jobs and my manager also worked around their schedules as well.

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 2 days. I interviewed at Dollar Tree (Bowie, MD) in April 2016.

    Interview

    They asked a few questions about availability and asked me how I would sale a certain object. The manager seemed nice but was a little spacey and lost my resume two times and I had to fill in a new one. They asked a few too many questions for this level of job but it was an relatively easy interview overall, I turned down the offer because of the pay.

    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied in-person. The process took 1 day. I interviewed at Dollar Tree in February 2015.

    Interview

    I asked for the manager and turned in my application to him. He told me that he liked that I did ask for the manager instead of dropping it off "like all the others".
    The manager then asked me if he can interview me on the spot and I agreed.
    The interview was just about reviewing my application, salary expectation, schedule/hour availability, etc.
    The manager then said I was hired and that he would contact me in a few days for orientation/paperwork and that I bring in 2 forms of ID's and a green collared-shirt to be approved for my uniform.

    Interview Questions

    • Are you willing to do other job duties such as cashiering and/or stocking?   Answer Question

    Negotiation

    My advice: You'll have a better chance at getting hired if you ask for the manager instead of just dropping off your application with a random employee.
