    pay was alright. the crew was dedicated.

    Cons

    DM clueless. Wanted store manager at store open to close, no days off. unorginized, and rude. No chance for store manager to control crew, DM wanted all the control.

    Advice to Management

    train the DM on how to be leaders. Fin a way to comunate on a possitive note. alow the store manager to be in control of the store.

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

    Pros

    The best reason to work here are the customers. Being around them made your day worth it. The work was easy though and the pay was decent for what you did.

    Cons

    Terrible management that did not know how to run a store. Constantly yelling at people for the smallest of mistakes and never let cashiers even have a water bottle below their register.

    Advice to Management

    Look into some of the people you have managing your locations. Very unprofessional.

    I worked at Dollar Tree full-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    Good pay for store managers, Monthly Bonus is excellent if you are even able to exceed their sales expectations. Thats it. other than making your own schedule not much is great about this company.

    Cons

    Constant turnover of employees and assistant managers due to very pathetic pay and rate increase. Manager has practically little or no payroll to work with. He is expected to perform all store duties when hours are cut. Unloading trucks containing 600 plus pieces are unloaded by manager and warehouse assistant manger. constant threat and fear of being robbed. deposits are made at night my manager driving deposit to the bank, very unsafe

    Advice to Management

    Better pay for associates and assistant managers. invest some money in them so we managers can have proper help and support . spend money to make money. Payroll and hours are very weak.

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

    Pros

    There really aren't any pros to list here. The one exception would be that it is a paying job. I can't really say anything positive other than that.

    Cons

    There are basically three Assistant Manager positions available at the store I'm at. There is the Freight Assistant Manager who is supposed to oversee the unloading of the truck and the stocking of the store, the Assistant Manager for the day shift stocks and runs a register and the Closing Assistant Manager who cleans and recovers the store then counts and delivers the deposit. None of these positions are what they would be in any other retail environment I've been in. It is a management position in name only. These are basically sales and stock associate positions with a title.

    Advice to Management

    You will never be able to create a culture that creates associates who wish to grow with the company by paying your Assistant Managers $8.75/hr and only working them part time.

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

    Pros

    None, none, none, none, none

    Cons

    No benefits, ran on ghost crews, didn't pay squat. Manager job wasn't really manager job - you were pretty much a glorified cashier as you didn't even have enough staff to really even manage. These stores are jokes and treat their employees like crap. I had a good general manager, but we all hated corporate.

    Advice to Management

    Treat and pay your employees like the hard working people they are and don't reset stores every 10 seconds. Minimum wage is ok for cashiers, but your management team earned .75 more and that's it?!

    Pros

    Excellent Training for the time frame of 5 weeks

    Cons

    You are never told when released from a 45 hour a week training class that you will be putting in 65-72 hours a week. There is no support from district management team.

    Advice to Management

    take care of your employees and they will in return take care of you.

    Advice to Management

    pay your cashiers more and show some respect to your people when u walk n the store n dont speak. how rude.

    Pros

    Very nice store management and flexible hours. They hire only adults, so most workers are atleast somewhat more mature then a young teen.

    Cons

    The District Managers in DFW, Texas! They are AWFUL! They will bully and harass employees. The upper senior management treats employees like NUMBERS. They make over 8 Billion dollars in revenue a year, and does NOT have a employee recogization program. If a guest gives you a comment on the survey, no rewards. They cut hours so much... they expect people working to pay for gas and time with 13 or less hours a week. They make alot and should start workers off atleast with 7.75. NO drinks including water near the registers tables, even if they are far away from the computer, you will get yelled at if upper mgt finds out.

    Advice to Management

    please travel around to the stores and look at it from the store POV. not just at a desk with a spreadsheet and a title. It would be good if employees knew how to contact upper management for concerns and ideas... More respect for employees.
