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

Pros

Plenty to do to keep you busy throughout the day.

Cons

It's a lot of work. Even though you are an operations manager, you are spending most of your time stocking shelves and unloading freight from trucks. Most of the time you are understaffed and it is just you and 1 other employee in the store.

Advice to Management

Change your price points and focus more on training and customer service.

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

    Pros

    Easiest job I've had part time. Corporate enough but also laid back. Easy to work with other employees because there arent that many but enough that you can request off if need be. worked there during college for a year, easy, not stressful unless holidays.
    Wish i would have bugged manager more about transferring when i transferred colleges.
    managers are not too rude . don't be short on drawer and don't be rude. i dont know how else youd get fired.

    Cons

    Pay is minimum wage but to be expected. can be very boring at times but low stress so who cares. holidays can be stressful but they hire extra help. customers can be shady but whatever.

    Advice to Management

    don't fight between each other. dont bring others into it.

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

    Pros

    guaranteed at least min. of 35 hrs. per week
    most customers are great

    Cons

    must punch for breaks but usually won't get, low pay, not enough people working at same time, freight and work load to heavy, etc scedules Always subject to change and called in on day off.
    some of the regular customers can be very arrogant and huge butts
    parents with children let their kids run loose while they are destroying the store
    customers on cell phones at any given time during their shopping trip even while checking out or asking where something is located...and on and on and on...

    Advice to Management

    More payroll hours given to employ at least 2 cashiers and managment at ALL given open hours of business...even when slow. Better way and "tools" to make truck unload easier on all our backs.
