    Your monthly bonus doesn't have a cap. The insurance is decent.

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

    Pros

    Flexible, easily transfer from city to city or a whole different state if life moves you, I love my job, great if you wanna a job you can advance in.

    Cons

    I have a hard time keeping crew because of pay and hours available, I have always said truck hours should be a set amount that is separate from the rest, it is next to impossible to get a whole truck stocked in 48 hours when you only have enough hours to have 2 people to unload and stock, but hey no one listens to the people who do the work, work what I got for 1 week, bet you will see what I'm talking about, I swear I need a episode of undercover boss in my store, I even use my own money to show my employees a thank you once a month because the upper mgmt only tells us we ain't doing enough, but we work hard to do the best we can, there is so much good and bad I can't write it all

    Advice to Management

    Listen to your employees, raise the pay, visit the store more than once a year, appreciate employees,

    Pros

    Benefits for Full time managers.

    Cons

    Yes, the company is a Con.

    Advice to Management

    ReEvaluate the minimum starting pay for employees
    Learn to treat employees like they are worth more than 8.00 A hour. Appreciation and respect are free, and goes ALONG way.

    I worked at Dollar Tree (More than a year)

    Pros

    There are not any pros,with this company.

    Cons

    Regional team in region 10 is a joke. I have never experienced a group of people who make you feel incapable of doing your job. They are backstabbing,have no solution to problems,except to send ugly emails out. I watched them run off and gang up on a district manager. Definitely would not recommend this company to anyone.

    Advice to Management

    Better training from the highest level to the store level. Training programs are a joke.

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

    Pros

    I think it is a good place for people on a low budget to shop. At least they hired me. Some places won't hire older people. I like my coworkers. Good thing it leaves plenty of time to look for other jobs.

    Cons

    Not enough hours. You can't survive on this job alone. Coworkers all say the same thing. 5 minutes training for the cash register. I've never used one before and I told them that up front. The store manager snaps at me for asking questions about things that I couldn't possibly know. I think she may be burned out. Probably a a good enough person. Even a customer said "I can't believe how they treat their employees". Upper management seem to be happy. I know that sounds typical. I think there is rapid turnover by design.

    Advice to Management

    Be fair. Hire less people for more hours. Don't come in the store and make criticisms of the way things are and make lots of demands, then the very next day cut hours making it impossible. Just be fair. They have good people.

    Pros

    Great customers good merchandise best prices

    Cons

    Way too much work for unloading boxes for 2 people
    People wouldn't show up for work because they were getting paid 8.00 to unload 2300 boxes
    It's a shame of Dollar tree to not offer more
    Unless you have a background and can't get anything else or a high school student this job is a dump.
    Stores always messy...people dnt show while gm makes 45,000 or more

    Advice to Management

    Help your team and your stores. Gm should be doing more than putting out seasonal. ..Dollar Tree needs a company restructuring

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

    Pros

    The best thing about working there are the people I work with/for. My coworkers are friendly and everyone gets along. My bosses will work with me on an schedule change as long as I give at least 2hrs notice but I always give more unless I'm sick.

    Cons

    The challenges of working here are the hours constantly getting cut, not having enough people on a shift, and not being able to get everything you are required to get done, finished. The computers/registers are always messing up and so is the air conditioning.

    Advice to Management

    To corporate: take better care of your stores, see to your customers comfort, and ease your employees job. Happy customers and employees makes your job easier as well.
