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

    Pros

    Medical is paid by company.

    Cons

    Where to start...
    Doesn't seem like the left hand know what the right hand is doing.
    There are three shifts, I've never seen the GM during the 3 Rd shift except when it's over...or there's a meeting of sorts...
    They have bonuses for boxes picked, doesn't seem right to have pallets stacked over the pallets ( mushroom), it won't fit on truck without redoing it. Which takes away from loaders chance to get bonus.
    They don't want you to come to work sick , but you get an occurrence if you call off, so you feel like crap twice because your sick and they're punishing you for being sick.
    They want you to establish goals but if you want to get into management you can't because they are restructuring it...they have been restructuring it for about 4 months
    Bad company vibe --I expected this from employees but I hear more from management.
    I'll stop there ...don't want to scare too many away......

    Advice to Management

    I see one or two supervisors walking the floor...there are about ten or twelve ....imagine how much each of you could see if all sums walked the floor it could be an eye opener....

    I hear clean as you go, which is fine, I may have this wrong , but when you bonus on how many boxes you pick in an hour employees are less likely to clean and more likely to leave it for the next shift especially when 12 sups are not walking the floor and not seeing what might be going on..... I know this because I've been behind the guys and girls who leave it for the next shift...

    Pros

    Short shifts, easy work for the most part, managers are generally good with taking days off and requested time off.

    Cons

    Lacking hours, store manager is lazy and unproductive. Pay is fine for a cashier job, other companies pay more competitively.

    Advice to Management

    Stop expecting your cashiers to do everything. Do your own U-Boats.
