    I have been working at Dollar Tree full-time (More than 10 years)

    Pros

    Debt free Fortune 500 company with 5000 locations. Opportunity for advancement is great. I have never worked for a company with so many internal promotions. When other companies are cutting payroll, closing locations or just going out of business, DT is growing like crazy.

    Cons

    Store Manager position is very hands on.

    Pros

    Dollar Tree has great benefits and allows advancement from within the company. The work environment is excellent and promotes growth.

    Cons

    There is a lot of heavy lifting because everything is a dollar or less employees as well as customer still think it is ok to steal. If we have more incentives I think it would curve that.

    Advice to Management

    Treat all customers and employees the way inwhich you would want to be treated. Build up your employees, putting them down all the time causes poor job performance.

  3. "Great introductory place of employment for teens/young adults. They pay doesn't start that great, but the experience is."

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

    Pros

    Good hours, pleasant atmosphere. A nice entry into the world of employment. Nice opportunity to get some experience under their belt. At least you won't be walking around without any funds. Stores are usually within waling distance to most city dwellers.

    Cons

    Relatively low pay. some stores have crappy management (mines didn't). Not much to complain about however, unless you want a solid full time job.

    Advice to Management

    None

    Pros

    all of my coworkers and managers are extremely friendly, the work is not difficult and upper management is always willing to work around your schedule

    Cons

    the pay sucks--but thats more of a corporate thing--and the hours are not that great, the customers are surprisingly stupid 90% of the time

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

    Pros

    Coworkers, store can be calm at times. Benefits are good. Ability to work at different locations.

    Cons

    Very hard to get full-time work. General management had unrealistic expectations. Low pay.

    Advice to Management

    You can't expect us to keep the store in order if you don't let us work full-time. We need more hours in order to do our job properly.

    hire people that actually want to be here, and don't be afraid to fire employees who don't show up or bring anything to the table
