    Pros

    well established company with good/kind & hardworking lower level employees, pay & benefits are mediocre

    Too many managers & like to micro-manage employees, its uncomfortable. You never feel secure in your job, you get direction from multiple angles & do more than your fair share, NO TRAINING

    Advice to Management

    EASE UP! Your employees do a lot more than they are paid to

    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.

    I have been working at Dollar Tree full-time (More than 8 years)

    Pros

    Fast paced, flexibility in merchandising, 401k, sales and margin bonuses, no credit cards to push on customers, no sales and tagging to worry about.. very minimal compared to other retailers

    Cons

    Large work load, High volume stores with many policies and programs that are impossible to keep in place at all times with the amount of payroll to work with . It takes a very strong willed person with perseverance, patience and strong planning and organizational skills to deal with the clientele and daily tasks on top of the amount of replenishment and recovery needed to maintain a well functioning store that makes +1.5 million annually.

    Advice to Management

    Planning tools are effective, appleseed etc,... but too much paperwork, paper wasted and things like stocking station are a waste of time where most stores are wasting time not using them properly anyway or faking them just to appease DMs. To many assistants hired as a body rather than for talent.

    Pros

    Love helping older customers when they need help and greeting customers

    Cons

    As being a assistant manager you learn by watching and asking about things to ask your store manager about the important things as things need things in store being clean

    Advice to Management

    I want to go far in life and move that interest me that I would together in life
