    "They treat their managers horribly, put in a ton of hours for little salary, and bonuses are imperviable."

    Pros

    You don't have to wear a dress shirt and tie, just a green polo. No price checks, because everything is a dollar or less.

    Cons

    Impossible to keep a staple items in stock. You work a ton of hours for very little salary compensation. I put in over 100 hours two weeks in a row, because of an assistant manager being out sick. Not even my district manager could get other stores to help out with a manager to fill in. So that meant many days working 6:30am-10:30pm. And the "bonus" guidelines are set up so that they are nearly impossible to achieve.

    Advice to Management

    You get what you pay for with employees. When you can only start associates out at minimum wage (even with experience), do you really expect outstanding productivity??

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

    Pros

    The pros of working at Dollar Tree are that of working at any other retail store; you're the first to know what is going on the shelves for consumers.

    Cons

    The downsides of working at the specific store I worked at was the lack of communication between managers, poor environmental ethics, and the lack of commitment to the productivity and appeal of the store.

    Advice to Management

    Individual stores should be investigated with a keen eye. The success of a store is based on its appearance and how well the manager can manage the day to day routine.

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

    Pros

    Making balloon sets was fun and some aspects of the job allow you to get really creative when setting things up but it's really not anything more than a temporary job. I don't suggest being there more than a year or so..

    Cons

    Not enough hours to give to associates because dollar tree stores don't make good money (clearly, it's a dollar store). No opportunity to move into other positions unless you want to manage, which I never wanted to after seeing what my managers went through. This was my first job out of high school so it worked for the time being but I left for a restaurant job and it was the best decision I ever made... I'd be so broke if I stayed at dollar tree...

    Advice to Management

    Being kinder and more appreciative of hard
    Working employees.

    I worked at Dollar Tree full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    Plenty to do to keep you busy throughout the day.

    Cons

    It's a lot of work. Even though you are an operations manager, you are spending most of your time stocking shelves and unloading freight from trucks. Most of the time you are understaffed and it is just you and 1 other employee in the store.

    Advice to Management

    Change your price points and focus more on training and customer service.
