    I have been working at Dollar Tree part-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    Good work environment, co workers are very pleasant to work with. Corporate is expanding so a lot of new hires are coming in which make it appears your career here will be stable

    Cons

    The pay could be better. Currently building a new 12 story building so the parking lot can get dusty and crowded. Not everyone is full time

    Advice to Management

    Since Dollar Tree is a Fortune 200 company, offer better pay, more full time positions, stay up to date with the technology, and work from home options

    Pros

    well established company with good/kind & hardworking lower level employees, pay & benefits are mediocre

    Too many managers & like to micro-manage employees, its uncomfortable. You never feel secure in your job, you get direction from multiple angles & do more than your fair share, NO TRAINING

    Advice to Management

    EASE UP! Your employees do a lot more than they are paid to

    Pros

    This is a good start to a career in retail. Interesting business model.

    Cons

    Very antiquated, stringent, non progressive company. There is no career path so turnover is quite high. Office moral is extremely low, it is depressing and almost toxic. There are no company perks to speak of. HR seems to be broken and ineffective.

    Advice to Management

    How about appreciating and investing in your PEOPLE.

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

    Pros

    Very nice building—cafeteria, outdoor courtyard, coffee bar, artwork from local artists here and there on the walls. Solid benefits. Greenbrier is a cool area. Seem willing to hire younger, less-experienced people, so it's a good place to get your "foot in the door."

    Cons

    Poor work/life balance. Negative, unhappy work atmosphere. Not enough employees for the workload. No support from management. Total lack of communication between employees/management/upper management. Constant corporate drama. Several toxic personalities in the mix. Saw another reviewer mention the "extreme culture of micromanaging and finger-pointing"—that is absolutely true.

    Advice to Management

    You've hired a group of talented, enthusiastic people, but you offer them no support, minimal job satisfaction, and no room for growth. Learn to show employees they are valued, or don't be surprised when the entire team moves on as soon as possible.

    I have been working at Dollar Tree full-time

    Pros

    Benefits, some of my co-workers but not many

    Cons

    Depends on your supervisor. Most are power hungry and threatened by anyone with a brain. Can't trust anyone.

    Advice to Management

    Not everyone in management is able to supervise. Some need more work instead of socializing with their supervisors.

    Pros

    Pretty good benefits. Flexible schedule for the most part. They just purchased Family Dollar!

    Cons

    Management has changed to a more big corporate feel. Most of the people that were there since the beginning have left. Nobody important really knows who you are. Will promise you the moon.

    Advice to Management

    Just try to have some team building. Everyone just seems so isolated from one another.
