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

Pros

The orientation covered everything about working at Dollar Tree including breaks, loss prevention, how employees should be treated with respect and an understanding that it will take you a while to learn new skills. Will hire anyone for entry level positions.

Cons

The fact that management doesn't care about their own advice, disrespects their employees by yelling down to them, shooting the breeze with each other during work time and the sporadic part time hours. Also the management was on different pages and had no coordination what so ever. Lack of full time opportunities. Felt no respect as an employee. Minimum salary for a lot of work to open up a new store.

Advice to Management

Treat your employees with respect and have patience teaching them new skills especially when your having them do something drastic like stock an entire store in less then a week understaffed and under equipped.

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

    Pros

    Very few, shorter work week than competition.

    Cons

    Overstocked stores, no control over merchandise being sent. Employee turnover is high because of low pay and high stress. Urban locations can not be kept clean, customers trash the stores faster than they can be straightened.

    District manager insisted I return to work the day after my mothers funeral, which was 700 miles away and a 12 hour drive. This, after approving a three week leave. No respect is given to the employees, they are just another commodity to be used and discarded.

    Advice to Management

    Take time to work in the stores. Your money is made in the stores, not the corporate offices.
