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

Pros

After working in retail for a few companies I am excited to start my career with Dollar Tree, they are organized, they are efficient and they are good to staff. They really have worked with me.

Cons

The training is 8 weeks long, which is GREAT, but it is 1.5 hours from my home, which is not groovy, but it is what it is.

Advice to Management

Share training hours with other stores, when you hire managers near the Christmas season, take full advantage, pick GOOD store managers to train MIT, that may be located near everyone's hometown or within 45 mins max. What this will do is make training more of a good experience and it won't make your new MIT's wore out from working a 9 to 10 hour shift then also have a 3 hour drive back and forth everyday too. I almost declined the position due to that.

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

    Pros

    Store level employees can be a great team. Almost a family, considering how many hours you have to put in as manager. Bonuses are available monthly. Customers were the reason I stayed as long as I did.

    Cons

    Continuously opening stores nearby. Then they want to know why sales aren't increasing. Then they cut hours and want to know why the store isn't full. Can't stock shelves when I am running a register 50% of my time. Running a store that is open from 9am-10pm on 160 hours is crazy.

    Advice to Management

    Stop the micro-management. And stop the payroll bonuses of district managers and above. Concentrate on getting the stores full and stop forcing the filling out of who is going to do what.....I am going to do it all because I dont have anyone else....why write it down?

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

    Pros

    customers were pleaseant and the majority of staff and supervisors were very supportative.

    Cons

    Manager hired family memebers and left loyal employees without hours to work. Store hours were often shorten for employees even though our store was very productive,

    Advice to Management

    Stay loyal to your hard working and dependable employees who often gave up holidays to work.
