    Pros

    Management is flexible with scheduling. I'm currently looking for full-time employment, and with my schedule the way it is now, it allows time to schedule interviews and other appointments.

    Cons

    Sometimes it can become overwhelming when you're to stock shelves, but are so busy working with customers. I feel like I get nothing done at times. I guess the end result is the customer, which is most important.

    Pros

    Dollar tree is the only true dollar store I have ever experienced. the selection is fantastic, the buyers do a great job. For the most part, the upper management is experienced and professional.

    Cons

    As with any large well run company, budget is tight and payroll is also very tight.

    Advice to Management

    Communication is the key!

    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.

    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.

    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).
