    I have been working at Dollar Tree Canada full-time (Less than a year)

    Pros

    Short hours
    Location
    Not strict about uniform
    Easy to move up because of high turnover .
    Cash handling is easy because no refunds or voids. Everything is bascically the same price

    Cons

    Lots of stocking
    Short staffed at times( usually two to four people per shift).
    Expect you to unload 25 boxes per hour.
    Not enough space often there is overstock( too much if something and too little of something in the shipment).

    Advice to Management

    They won't listen so I don't have much to say but it's a good entry level job.

    I have been working at Dollar Tree Canada part-time

    Pros

    Working at dollar tree is great for a part time job. The shifts are short and sweet, and if you stay long enough, you have the opportunity for advancement.
    The people are fun to work with, and customers are alright.

    Cons

    Management is, more often than not, unorganized and sometimes unable to accommodate. Often, the managers "forget" about the time that you book off, and leave it on you to fix it.
    On top of that, cashiers are expected to be on cash, and run around the store and do everything else when there are no customers in line.

    Advice to Management

    Don't make the cashiers do everything, otherwise, keep up the great work environment.

    Pros

    Good selection of noodles for a break

    Cons

    This was my first job. I worked there for over 7 years, and still made minimum wage (never got a raise), probably because of my age. I never complained about it, though.

    I worked at Dollar Tree Canada part-time (Less than a year)

    Pros

    I have absolutely not pros for this position.

    Cons

    This was my first ever job ( 16 years old ) and I thought I hit jackpot , being so close to where I live, little did I know it'd be emotionally traumatizing ( that might be a bit much ) My manager was very rude , pointed out some mental health issues I had infront of customers , would continually ask me question ( subtly saying I was stupid) like " can you read ??". My first day I was thrown on the day before Easter , without any training what so ever. Was an extremely negative environment and has impacted my further job search ( I'm now 17)

    Advice to Management

    Please reevaluate your manager's often , see how the treat your employees, and if your employees are feel safe and welcome.
