    Pros

    no comment there really aren't XCELLANT CUSTOMER SERVICE..BUT CUSTOMER CAN HAVE THIER WAY...DO LIKE UNNDERCOVER BOSS...SEE WHAT WE DO..THERE SHOULD NOT BE AN EXCHANGE POLICY..

    Cons

    no comment...in the area I work in..it would really be discriminatory to give a response other than..were these people from other countries this disrespectful too..its a challenge...I AM 50 YEARS OLD..never seen this level of disrespect...I am so disappointed as to what we are expected to deal with! it is hard..why accept exchange at a dollar store!!! CUSTOMER IS NOT ALWAS RIGHT.

    Advice to Management

    REALLY??? I have seen and experienced my manager go by the book..just to be told by her boss..well you are right..BUT.. we will take care of your customer who is taking advantage of the freebies...that is what corp is doing wrong. if you have time above store level I have time to give you a reality check o customer service at the base

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

    Pros

    Simple processes. Not very much pros. It can be a great place to work if they reduce the amount of workload and give the store more hours to run the store. It will make the store more profitable.

    Cons

    Extreme workload, not enough hours to run the store. High turn over. Low pay rate.

    Advice to Management

    Pay more attention to complaints from employees and customers
