    Pros

    Nothing positive to say, poor company culture, would not recommend even to my worst enemy.

    Free soda at the cafeteria that's all, you don't even get decent office supplies at the corporate office, they make you sign your name when you get your supply of white out eraser!

    Advice to Management

    Get out from your comfortable and big offices, smell the roses and interact with the lower class employees, most of all please smile and acknowledge employees when you see them in hallways!

    I worked at Dollar Tree full-time (More than 10 years)

    Pros

    The best thing about Dollar Tree were my co-workers and that it was a financially stable company.

    I loved my job tremendously and left on my own, due to a fantastic job offer.

    Cons

    Unfairness to employees, company politics, poor pay raises, favoritism among employees.

    My immediate supervisor tried to intimidate me into following his rules and not company policy. He does not like women and especially those that challenge him. Supervisor had very poor communication skills and interpersonal skills.

    A Vice President intimidates and bullies people in his department if they disagree with anything he says.

    Very few female executives and very few executives that are not Caucasian.

    Take home pay decreased every year for about 5 years, due to very low pay increases and continues increases in health care costs and taxes. I could no longer afford to work there.

    Advice to Management

    Value your employees and prove that they are valued. Most of them work very hard for DT and deserve to be treated better.
