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

Pros

- Gain skills such as customer service and multi-tasking.
- Good first job or for retirees seeking work.
- Hire from within to advance to assistant manager positions.

Cons

- One supervisor and one cashier per shift is common when it gets busy.
- Expected workload can be tedious and exhausting.
- Some managers do not know how to manage employees.
- Companies sometimes disregards federal safety and employee laws.

Advice to Management

Top-down management needs to treat everyone fairly and with respect. That is why you have such high turnover and problems in employee retention. Also, check up on the rules because employees are smart enough to know when something is not right. That is why you have so many lawsuits and people wanting to sue.

    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.
