    I have been working at Dollar Tree part-time (More than 10 years)

    Pros

    Ihave worked for dollar tree since July 2016. I applied as a cashier, I have over 5 years experience, I am a big people person. I am very reliable, love working. Great customer service. Most employees and customers come to me about items, in store. And when we will be getting more items in. My boss looks towards me for guidance, and leadership. I have requested to be trained for store manager.

    Cons

    I'm still waiting for my raise and the training. I can't lift a over 1 hundred pounds. The company is going nowhere. They don't want to pay full time, or over time.

    Advice to Management

    I'm have great people skills,hard worker,willing to go the extra mile. I love to work. Anything asked of me I will do. Looking to work for a company that is going to flourish and grow, for my future. I need more income to support my kids and I.

    I worked at Dollar Tree (Less than a year)

    Pros

    small stores,, a tiny group of employees. so I had a good time with most. hours are flexible, and you can easily move up. I made assistant manager in about 6 months.

    Cons

    a lot of favoritism. I got terminated after only 1 write-up. Others had countless write ups and are still there, and a lot of the write ups they had were for drug and alcohol use.

    Advice to Management

    treat people more equally.

    I worked at Dollar Tree full-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    Job.Paycheck.That is all. You will hate your life if you work here!

    Cons

    Everything! As a store mgr you will have no days off, store is always calling you at all hours. Horribly run company. Horrible training. No support from upper management. No payroll to run an over million dollar a year store. Constantly asked to help other stores. Good luck taking any vacation time you earn. DO NOT WORK HERE.

    Advice to Management

    Treat associates like they are people. Listen to your employees or you won't have any to run your China based organization!
