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

Pros

Easy advance into management from associate position.
ok benefits (For management).

Cons

From an Assistant Manager's point of view. Bad pay(You're expected to do as much work as a store manager, but get paid close to a cashier...), Impossible to achieve monthly bonus, ridiculous if not unrealistic expectations from upper management. Just overall too much work, headache and demands for the bad pay they give you.

Advice to Management

Treat your employees better and pay them what they deserve , after all they do all the physical/crucial work to keep your corporation functioning.

    I worked at Dollar Tree full-time (Less than a year)

    Pros

    If you like challenges this is the job.

    Cons

    Margins for the business model so low that there are not enough hours to give hourly associates to effectively get the job done. Therefore the salaried store manager based on a 45 hr work week must work 65+ hours to make up the difference.

    Advice to Management

    either shareholders need to take a few million less and give to the stores(or district) budgets or the price point needs to be increased so we can hire enough coverage to take care of freight, customer service, the abundant seasonal transitions, training, and the additional corporate responsibilities (paperwork) we must keep up with.

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

    Pros

    Friendly staff, good work environment, great manager to work for. I feel like Dollar Tree really values the employees.

    Cons

    Stock room could have better stacked pallets and more room to maneuver. It makes it hard to unload trucks at times.

    Advice to Management

    When someone works freight they need to restack the pallet correctly to save time the next morning.
