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

    Pros

    There are two Dollar Trees in my city, and I was working at the nicer one. We kept our location much nicer than the other one, and I could tell this because people were often surprised when they walked in. They also complimented us. I've heard a lot of bad reviews about Dollar Tree employees having to work through breaks without pay, but I never experienced that while I was there.

    Cons

    The downside of my experience there was a schedule that changed weekly. It would have been nice to have a consistent schedule. Another downside is they only pay minimum wage, but from my experience it's an alright starter job.

    Advice to Management

    Either schedule more employees or expect employees to do less on their shifts; it can get very busy and messy in the store. Sometimes it's impossible for the number of employees that are there to get everything done that needs to be done.

    Pros

    Friendly co-workers
    Easy work to do
    No price check (it's all a dollar!)
    Friendly Management
    Overall good work environment
    Usually friendly customers
    The regulars (There are some folks you see every other day consistently)

    Cons

    The pay rate,
    you are paid ten cents over min wage at $7.35
    The hours,
    you are scheduled by how much revenue the store
    brings in each week, and it's a dollar store so I
    work between 10 and 20 hours a week.
    You don't earn alot of money, but its okay for someone
    who doesn't have student loans to pay.

    Advice to Management

    I really like all of my managers at dollar tree, there is only one manager at the store where I work that I would call lazy, but we can't have everything. They are all really easy to work with and talk to, I think my only advice would be to allow more hours because even on busy days calling in more workers in looked down on by the upper upper management (because they lose some of their bonus money when associates work more).

    Pros

    As a manager, you have the ability through agressive ordering and creative merchandising to have a strong impact on sales.

    Cons

    The labor budget constraints don't allow for sufficient coverage of store. The customers shop the store with no regard for its cleanliness, opening and breaking many products and allowing children to run around unsupervised.

    Advice to Management

    Keep new location size down, to help keep store shelves full and store clean and recovered.
