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

    Pros

    we are like a family, even if we move to other jobs we some will still come by to visit. we call each other by nicknames. the customers love the store we get compliments all the time, they joke with the staff. we make them feel at home as best as we can.

    Cons

    not very many cons we get the occasional mean costumer, but overall everything is great there

    Advice to Management

    its ok to be nice and friendly to your fellow coworkers we wont think you are not doing your job, if anything it makes us want to come to work and work for you.

    Disapproves of CEO

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

    Pros

    Employer works with schedule which is a tremendous help. Flexible, fast paced, and there's always something different.

    Cons

    Sometimes the customers get a little to worked up over minor things. It's a dollar store, some people that come in act like they're royalty and you should kiss the ground they walk on. I've worked in many fields and the way some of these shoppers act is a disgrace to the human race.

    Advice to Management

    Corporate needs to stop treating their employees (including the managers) like they are pawns. They are human, they want to see the company succeed as much as the "big guys" do. Treat them with respect.
