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

Pros

The employees who i work with are incredibly kind and pretty cool people overall. This may not be consistent place to place though.

Decent chance for reviews and constructive criticism. I can talk with my managers on what I can improve upon and get decent feedback.

The work and goals set for stocking aren't hard to meet. Decent focus and work ethic gets the job done without breaking a sweat.

If you do the work well, you can be promoted to assistant manager and get specific training as well. just be competent and work hard.

Cons

Hours can be pretty inconsistent. Some weeks go from 4 hours to others being closer to 12 and 15 hours a week. It heavily depends on the season and slow seasons means less hours for everyone.

Bad managers/coworkers could make the position far worse. Managers have the final say in almost anything, meaning that you need to make sure you're on their good side.

Cut throat hours. If your store hired too many people, everyone gets worse hours until people start quitting.

For part time position, no benefits. Not sure on managerial level though

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

    Pros

    The best thing about working for dollar tree is you get to see the special buys before the customers.

    Cons

    The pay is crappy... especially considering the amount of work expected of you. There is no communication except when something is filtered through 5 different people. They expect you to live in your store, which leads to a horrible work/life balance. They transfer you around whenever they feel like it without even talking to you about it. You really can't trust upper management as far as you can throw them.

    Advice to Management

    There is a breakdown of communication from the top down. The people dictating how a store should run are not actually in a store dealing with the day to day.
