    Work was very repetitive. Customers would always complain about everything, lots of people stealing merchandise. Stores in shady parrts of the nehborhood which made work scary sometimes.

    Advice to Management

    Empoewer management to be able to stop theift, add a loss prevention course so they can stop theifs which would save the company tons of money.

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

    Pros

    Tasks are easy, and the work environment is easy going. It’s an agreeable first job. The cash register uses an easy to follow interface unlike other establishments.

    Cons

    Pay is pretty low and the only bonuses you get are holidays. The hours can be inconsistent from week to week. The store is often understaffed along with expectations being set by DMs without the necessary amount of people on staff to fulfill them.

    Advice to Management

    Too much is expected to be done with too little people on staff. The DM cuts our SM’s hours far too often.

    Pros

    The Best Reasons To Work for Dollar Tree would be Because It’s A Great Environment, All my Co-workers Have Been Very Helpfully and Hard working . Dollar Tree has a positive atmosphere which makes it easy to love going to work .. I have great communication with my store manager which I really appreciate.

    Cons

    The only downside Dollar tree has Is that There aren’t as much hours available as I wish there would be .

    Advice to Management

    My advice to management, talk to your long Time employees on a personal level because they are in the store and they are the ones who can see what changes can be made for improvement.. Also My store Recently Has had No Recovery, which a really Important Factor for Dollar tree’s success .So I definitely would have to mention something about that

    There is a ton of potential because staffing turnaround is so large and constant.

    Reduce unnecessary freight levels. Hiring standards need improvement.

    I have been working at Dollar Tree full-time

    Pros

    Good Training and reasonable DM oversight

    Cons

    Crazy long hours, bonus targets are changed to always be just out of reach

    Advice to Management

    Your labor costs are unrealistic and lead to inventory not on the floor and long wait lines. Someone in an HR office is crunching numbers instead of realizing what it takes to run a store. Your retail point human capital is the face of your business and pencil pushers don't seem to get this at all. Open your pocket Ebenezer
