    I worked at Dollar Tree full-time (More than 5 years)

    Pros

    Monthly Bonuses if you meet sales goals, one close per week, it is very easy to move up because they are always desperate for management

    Cons

    Not enough payroll to successfully stock your store, they pay stockers and cashiers min. Wage so it is hard to keep good workers zero work/life balance no recognition when doing well only when things are going wrong. Amount of stress is huge.

    Advice to Management

    Figure out a way to get work/life balance so everything doesn't get put all on store manager. Pay lower associates better so we can keep good workers instead of losing them to other companies.
