    Pros

    Great starter job for someone fresh out of high school as they only allow for people 18+.

    Cons

    It can become boring, annoying, and from my experience co-workers are unreliable and back biting.

    Advice to Management

    hire some men instead of all women

    Pros

    Goal oriented, family oriented, generally enjoyable work environment, production based which gives potential for performance bonuses

    Cons

    Mandatory overtime during holiday season with sketchy holiday schedule

    Advice to Management

    Production based business has a level of seasonal repetition and predictability that should allow the opportunity to plan and give some foresight or scheduling stability with proper time management. This will give employees a better chance at being able to enjoy their families and off time resulting in happier, more productive workers.

    Pros

    This is a good start to a career in retail. Interesting business model.

    Cons

    Very antiquated, stringent, non progressive company. There is no career path so turnover is quite high. Office moral is extremely low, it is depressing and almost toxic. There are no company perks to speak of. HR seems to be broken and ineffective.

    Advice to Management

    How about appreciating and investing in your PEOPLE.

    I worked at Dollar Tree full-time

    Pros

    It was an ok job, very lukewarm as far as business and traffic is concerned. I did enjoy the hours though.

    Cons

    Pay wasn't very good. I had great hours but I deserved more money. I would recommend to high schoolers.

    Advice to Management

    Pay your employees and treat them fairly. You wouldn't want your kin treated badly.

    I worked at Dollar Tree part-time

    Pros

    The flexibility was great, I also enjoyed being just the cashier and not having to do every other position while trying to maintain the register. I was able to pick up quickly even though I had limited training

    Cons

    Standing for multiple hours with limited break time. Also being right by the sliding doors means you feel all the weather elements. When its hot, you're hot when it cold you're cold. Other than that i don't have any major cons. The job is super easy but can be tiring if you're working a store that stays busy like I did.
