    Staff was great pay was ok ,if your store does well store manager do get monthly bonus depending on stores performance,

    Cons

    Not enough payroll to satisfy business needs ,it can be very overwhelming having to close a very busy store with one manger,one cashier and one person recovering the store

    Pros

    The people hear are amazing.. You meet some of the most outrageous people... My store manager is the best we are a model store after all... can't really think of anything else that's good sorry....

    Cons

    PAY!!! I work my butt off for 6 years to make garbage if it wasn't for the stockers dollar tree stores would be empty, My hours are constantly being cut but I seem to kill my self all week to make sure there shelves are always filled for our customers. There is no appreciation from higher ups no insensitive to do better promises are never kept!! But I love my job that's why i stay....

    Advice to Management

    Stop bragging about your bonuses if it wasn't for the stockers keeping shelves stocked our customers wouldn't have nothing to buy so you wouldn't get a bonus!!
    Stop being rude to customers I now they can be rude but if they don't buy you don't have a job!!!

    I worked at Dollar Tree part-time (More than 5 years)

    Pros

    It used to be a really happy place to work for. Everyone worked together as a team and it used to be happy but at least everyone treated each other like a family.

    Cons

    When I resigned after 7 years there, I was a manager. I turned around the frozen food department in the harriman new York store and towards the end of my time there, the staff that was left didn't want to come to work and neither did I because everytime I went to work, I would cry because corporate didn't want to give us any hours to do what we had to do. I sacrificed a lot of my life for that job and I'm so glad that I got out when I did because it drove me crazy.

    Advice to Management

    Don't lose your life working for this company. It's easy to do that and don't forget that your employees are people too. They deserve to be treated with respect too.

    Pros

    Short shifts, easy work for the most part, managers are generally good with taking days off and requested time off.

    Cons

    Lacking hours, store manager is lazy and unproductive. Pay is fine for a cashier job, other companies pay more competitively.

    Advice to Management

    Stop expecting your cashiers to do everything. Do your own U-Boats.

    Pros

    No price stickers or labels, everything is a dollar.

    Cons

    Difficult to move up in the company, they like to hire from outside rather than promote within.

    Advice to Management

    Promote within the company, it benefits everyone that works there.

    Pros

    There are not any pros

    Cons

    They do not give their stores enough hours to run correctly. They ship in freight mercilessly. Their own paperwork says it will take 118 hours to put the freight out but they only will give you 49 employee hours to do it. The rest is left for the manager because they are salaried and won't cost them anymore payroll.

    Advice to Management

    None.... They think they know everything. No one can meet the expectations you set.
