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

Pros

I got this job when I was still in high school, so the hours worked well around my school schedule. You can meet some awesome coworkers, if you're lucky. Great part-time job if you don't care about getting many hours.

Cons

Management tends to play favorites, some employees get more hours than others instead of rotating shifts. Absolutely no room to grow unless a manager/assistant manager get fired and they're desperate to fill the position. Was there 3 years and never got a raise or bonus. They threaten you with write-ups and termination if you don't do absolutely every single thing they tell you (Our store had a lot of Spanish-speaking customers and some employees don't speak Spanish, therefore could not offer "item of the week" and are constantly threatened with write-ups).

Advice to Management

Reward hard-working employees and give more incentives. It might be easier to offer "item of the week" to customers when there's something in it for the workers, even just recognition.

    I have been working at Dollar Tree part-time (More than 5 years)

    Pros

    Flexible schedules and pretty laid back work environment make working around school and other job schedules much easier than some other jobs

    Cons

    Poor pay for the amount of work that employees are expected to complete.
    Poor direction from upper management.
    No support system from upper management especially when help in individual stores are needed.

    Advice to Management

    The upper management needs to understand that the people running their stores are people too, not robots there to execute their every wish
