    I worked at Dollar Tree part-time

    Pros

    Its a decent easy to get job.

    Cons

    horrible mangers, and needs more work on security, and needs to restock faster so we dont have another mad made customer.

    Advice to Management

    Clearly more pay at least by $1, and age really shouldn't matter

    Pros

    Company paid health insurance for individual. Low cost dental and vision for individual and family. Working hours are pretty decent.

    Cons

    Family insurance is expensive. Low pay for work done and for productivity expectations. Can't stay on equipment that you're the most productive with. Very hot in summer very cold in winter. Equipment is in horrible shape. Forced to eat at Cafe on premises.

    Advice to Management

    If you place people where they want to be production will be much easier to achieve.

    I worked at Dollar Tree full-time

    Pros

    Got to meet alot of people

    Cons

    Worked all the time one time i worked for 14 days straight little help no benefits because considered parttime but working full-time hr or way over and the manager would leave while still on the clock and ask cashiers and me to cover for her if anyone called looking for her and she would make it to where she never worked weekends or holidays i mean other peopl have kids too

    Advice to Management

    My advice is to raise the pay peolpe cant live on 7.25 cashiers or 8.75 for ASM and wouldn't have so many people quitting all the time

    "Working at Dollar Tree can be described in one word: chaos."

    Pros

    The best thing about working here is your work day goes by so fast because you are always busy. Being in charge of making the schedule has its perks, too.

    Cons

    Expectations are beyond unrealistic at this company. They pay their associates minimum wage,give them 10-15 hours a week, and expect managers to work miracles. Communication with upper level management is a joke, and good luck getting anything fixed. They would rather slap bandaids over something than actually fix the problem. Working 3 Saturday's a month and never knowing if you're going to have to work every day of the week or open to close multiple days is not fun either.

    Advice to Management

    There is a reason why the turnover rate is so high.

    not much to say, advancement?

    Cons

    minimum staffing, YOU are the primary stocker, bonuses few and far between. hard to hire good people, due to extremely low wages

    Advice to Management

    Stocking hours needed and raise the pay.

    Pros

    They over a great variety of products

    Cons

    Overwork salaried managers and don't offer payroll to help. They don't pay their cashiers and stockers enough to compensate their efforts. The company is too diverse for the level of software and interface systems the have.

    Advice to Management

    Pay employees better and get better at controlling freight deliveries.

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

    Pros

    The best thing about Dollar Tree is building friendships and getting to know new people when you're working there. My best friend now was my coworker

    Cons

    Everything. Payroll sucks. Corporate sucks. New policy different areas which is stupid. They deny it but it's true. Demanding a MILLION little things with what time? They ask for the most ridiculous stuff ever. The huge amount of turnover makes sense. Zero sales? DTB? Hiring? Corrective action you name it. Terrible all around. Just put in my 2 weeks and they are still begging the hell out of me but I'm so over them. Can't wait

    Advice to Management

    Stop being so greedy and pay your employees more. You get what you give. Crappy SMS and ASMS etc

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

    Pros

    District manager and regional team were supportive and helpful. Scheduling is pretty flexible if you need certain days off

    Cons

    High turn over and call outs. Assistant managers were only paid $1-2 hr more then a cashier. Store managers worked mandatory minumim 50 hrs a week, but usually works 60-70 a week.

    Advice to Management

    Senior management knows what's going on in the stores. How does loss prevention cover 250 stores, that's to many stores!
