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.

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

    Pros

    If you need a part time job. good

    Cons

    There's no heating no air conditioner no real rules no head person in charge. No one has a backbone. There's alot of people to tell what you are doing wrong but no one to pat you in the back and let you (hey thank you for doing this or that you really didn't have to but thank you for doing it anyway) if you do work there good luck. There's a person there that has her favorites be careful.

    Advice to Management

    get a back bone
