    Store Manager Interview

    Negative Experience
    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).
