    Pros

    Good place, job, and environment. Easy and steady work. Time tends to go by fast. Merchandise fairly easy to stock, not too heavy.

    Pros

    Dollar tree has a bit of a relaxed atmosphere to work in. You can enjoy the job you do and the people you have helping you do it.

    Cons

    Way too much freight being pushed into stores that they can't possibly keep up with it!

    Advice to Management

    Slow down on the freight, your employees would be much happier feeling like they have accomplished something Instead of being made to feel like they didn't do enough.
