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

    Pros

    Working for a company that has so many products to offer that the consumer loves, is the best part of of the job for me.

    Cons

    Not having enough man power to operate on a daily basis is one the the biggest problems they face. They never have enough hours for associates to work and this creates frustration for the consumer. They have to wait in line because they only have one cashier, and that tends to reduce the number of customers that would normally shop here.

    Advice to Management

    Fight for the man hours needed in order for your store to run efficiently and effectively. And then look at your pay rate for your employees. Some of them are very under paid for the work that they do and the time that they have vested within this company. Hire employees with experience with a decent rate, and the ones that are there, give them raises as they are do. This will be a great start !

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

    Pros

    Employees, Customers, and the Atmosphere.

    Cons

    Too much freight with too little hours and staff to push. Store Manager can't schedule accordingly due to truck schedule being delayed and not projected ahead of time in advance enough for work/life balance. It is like management and stock crews schedule is never set in stone due to this error.

    Advice to Management

    Store Management was wonderful. District on up won't listen to the legit safety concerns at store level when it comes to freight and stockroom concerns.
