    Pros

    The store managers are a people person. If any staff has a problem, they take the time to listen. They are very understanding. I have worked under three of these store managers and they were super-awesome!!

    Cons

    Most times throughout the work day the stores gets very busy, so unless you can manage this level of pressure, then you might want to reconsider application

    Advice to Management

    Keep doing what you are doing. You are already doing a great job.

    Pros

    The manager and staff were ok. They interview process is a breeze

    Cons

    They do not give enough hours. They do not handle customers properly or theft. They are way to stingy with bags. They do not allow more than two voids a night and need keep calling manager up.

    Advice to Management

    They need to treat each employee like they are important so they want stay.

    I have been working at Dollar Tree part-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    like some of my co workers, customers are okay

    Cons

    too much drama, store mgr. puts everyone against each other. can not got to her in private, tell the other person what you complained about. mgr. never works her shift. she is a poor leader. no pay increase for no one. you can buy company but can not pay your people to keep up with the store. that's why half of them are doing bad..

    Advice to Management

    get your act together, pay your people what they are worth. offer more hrs.

    Pros

    If you don't want to work much, it's a good job for you.

    Increase pay, add drug testing, and you'll get better employees who want to be there.

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

    Pros

    Ihave worked for dollar tree since July 2016. I applied as a cashier, I have over 5 years experience, I am a big people person. I am very reliable, love working. Great customer service. Most employees and customers come to me about items, in store. And when we will be getting more items in. My boss looks towards me for guidance, and leadership. I have requested to be trained for store manager.

    Cons

    I'm still waiting for my raise and the training. I can't lift a over 1 hundred pounds. The company is going nowhere. They don't want to pay full time, or over time.

    Advice to Management

    I'm have great people skills,hard worker,willing to go the extra mile. I love to work. Anything asked of me I will do. Looking to work for a company that is going to flourish and grow, for my future. I need more income to support my kids and I.

    Pros

    no comment there really aren't XCELLANT CUSTOMER SERVICE..BUT CUSTOMER CAN HAVE THIER WAY...DO LIKE UNNDERCOVER BOSS...SEE WHAT WE DO..THERE SHOULD NOT BE AN EXCHANGE POLICY..

    Cons

    no comment...in the area I work in..it would really be discriminatory to give a response other than..were these people from other countries this disrespectful too..its a challenge...I AM 50 YEARS OLD..never seen this level of disrespect...I am so disappointed as to what we are expected to deal with! it is hard..why accept exchange at a dollar store!!! CUSTOMER IS NOT ALWAS RIGHT.

    Advice to Management

    REALLY??? I have seen and experienced my manager go by the book..just to be told by her boss..well you are right..BUT.. we will take care of your customer who is taking advantage of the freebies...that is what corp is doing wrong. if you have time above store level I have time to give you a reality check o customer service at the base

    Pros

    They have really good store hours, and you will get home in a timely manner.

    Cons

    No employee discount, no time and half on holidays worked, and your bonus that they offer can only be used at the store. You have to use it through the smart coupons app. They have extended hours for holidays, and the purpose of that is pointless. The store sell anything that major to have extended hours.

    Advice to Management

    Be more mindful of your employees. Opening on Thanksgiving Day, and possibly Christmas, is very unnecessary.
