    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied through an employee referral. The process took 5 days. I interviewed at Dollar Tree (Schenectady, NY) in July 2016.

    Interview

    It was very easy! District Manager was very easy to talk to and very personable. He asked some basic questions but also probed off of them so I was impressed with this technique as I use it myself when doing interviews.

    Interview Questions

    • How I handled certain situations where I either had to improvise and change plans or how I could maximize and boost sales   Answer Question

    No negotiations! I was offered more than I expected.

    Easy Interview

    Application

    The process took 2+ weeks. I interviewed at Dollar Tree.

    Interview

    It was a open interview and I went in after I got off work. The interview took maybe 10 or 15 mins with the District Manager. Just asked me to tell her about myself and a little about my work history. Was told by her that before I came in for the open interview that she was just looking at the application that I put online and that she was going to give me a call anyways. But it was a easy interview.

    Interview Questions

    Negotiation

    There was no negotiation because it is based off of what sales value that your store does.

    Application

    I applied in-person. I interviewed at Dollar Tree (Jamaica, NY) in March 2016.

    Interview

    I was coming in to interview for the store manager position, but I was informed they had no position available. So I interviewed for the Assistant Store Manager position. Great interview, but the job depicted in the interview isn't the way I imagined the company.

    Positive Experience
    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied through a recruiter. The process took a week. I interviewed at Dollar Tree.

    Interview

    I was contacted by a recruiter who briefly interviewed me on the phone. She invited me to submit an application and take a test that was meant to measure not only integrity, but also basic managerial competencies. Once the test was passed, I interviewed the next week with the DM, who hired me on the spot. Salary was offered and negotiated up within an hour of the interview.

    Interview Questions

    • When assigning a task, what would you do as a manager?
      a)assign the task to the most talented worker, who you know will do it perfectly
      b)direct the whole team to focus on getting it done and let experienced ones figure out how best to do it
      c)delegate the task to an individual and follow up in person
      d)give the task to a manager or complete yourself  
      1 Answer

    Negotiation

    Within an hour of the interview, the recruiter contacted me and gave me the DM's salary offer. She asked if the number was acceptable, even though they both knew it was much higher than the position I was holding elsewhere. I told the recruiter I was hoping for more. She contacted the DM's boss and contacted me shortly thereafter with the number I desired.

    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 5 days. I interviewed at Dollar Tree (Milton, FL) in January 2016.

    Interview

    I applied for FT store manager; however, that isn't what they were interviewing me for. This pay was significantly less than I expected. The comment by the interviewer made to me suggested I had too high of salary expectations. Obviously, yes, if I was applying for Mgr - any other position would be considerably less. I wasted 30 minutes just to find out I wasn't interviewing for position I applied for. Not good business and a bit deceitful.

    Interview Questions

    • Describe how you would approach an employee that appeared to be working sloppy?   1 Answer

    Reasons for Declining

    I applied specifically for store manager and it wasn't til the end of the interview that I was informed they were only considering me for freight manager or part-time asst Mgr. They said $15 an hour was too high. They didn't make me a counter-offer so that leads me to believe it was significantly less (as in minimum wage).
