a complete Nightmare

Store Manager (Current Employee)
Dallas, TX (US)

I have been working at Dollar Tree full-time for more than a year

Prosthe only thing I would say is the customer base. You will have them for life

ConsNothing at all, more workload with a company that runs a 4-5% labor

rememeber..... this company pays 11% below the national average

Advice to Senior ManagementFire yourself and hire someone with a brain. Ten years in retail management and this is by far the worst experience Ive ever had. Very unprofessional regional staff which is always negative

No, I would not recommend this company to a friend – I'm not optimistic about the outlook for this company

Summer Job

Store Associate (Former Employee)
Allen, TX (US)

I worked at Dollar Tree part-time for more than a year

ProsThere are two Dollar Trees in my city, and I was working at the nicer one. We kept our location much nicer than the other one, and I could tell this because people were often surprised when they walked in. They also complimented us. I've heard a lot of bad reviews about Dollar Tree employees having to work through breaks without pay, but I never experienced that while I was there.

ConsThe downside of my experience there was a schedule that changed weekly. It would have been nice to have a consistent schedule. Another downside is they only pay minimum wage, but from my experience it's an alright starter job.

Advice to Senior ManagementEither schedule more employees or expect employees to do less on their shifts; it can get very busy and messy in the store. Sometimes it's impossible for the number of employees that are there to get everything done that needs to be done.

No, I would not recommend this company to a friend

A filler job, something to pass the time but not make a living with

Cashier (Current Employee)
Denton, TX (US)

I have been working at Dollar Tree

ProsFriendly co-workers
Easy work to do
No price check (it's all a dollar!)
Friendly Management
Overall good work environment
Usually friendly customers
The regulars (There are some folks you see every other day consistently)

ConsThe pay rate,
you are paid ten cents over min wage at $7.35
The hours,
you are scheduled by how much revenue the store
brings in each week, and it's a dollar store so I
work between 10 and 20 hours a week.
You don't earn alot of money, but its okay for someone
who doesn't have student loans to pay.

Advice to Senior ManagementI really like all of my managers at dollar tree, there is only one manager at the store where I work that I would call lazy, but we can't have everything. They are all really easy to work with and talk to, I think my only advice would be to allow more hours because even on busy days calling in more workers in looked down on by the upper upper management (because they lose some of their bonus money when associates work more).

Fast paced and ever changing environment with average compensation for work expectations.

Store Manager (Former Employee)
Fort Worth, TX (US)

I worked at Dollar Tree

ProsAs a manager, you have the ability through agressive ordering and creative merchandising to have a strong impact on sales.

ConsThe labor budget constraints don't allow for sufficient coverage of store. The customers shop the store with no regard for its cleanliness, opening and breaking many products and allowing children to run around unsupervised.

Advice to Senior ManagementKeep new location size down, to help keep store shelves full and store clean and recovered.

unreal, this was the worst job I ever had

Store Manager (Former Employee)
Fort Worth, TX (US)

I worked at Dollar Tree

Prospay was alright. the crew was dedicated.

ConsDM clueless. Wanted store manager at store open to close, no days off. unorginized, and rude. No chance for store manager to control crew, DM wanted all the control.

Advice to Senior Managementtrain the DM on how to be leaders. Fin a way to comunate on a possitive note. alow the store manager to be in control of the store.

No, I would not recommend this company to a friend
