    I worked at Dollar Tree

    Pros

    Pay is good. Bonus opportunity. 15 percent discount on stock purchases. Always busy. Chance to show merchandising skills.

    Cons

    Hours
    You work all the time. You have a ton of employees that work less than 15 hours a week so they are never available when you need them.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    More full time positions. Salary assistant managers so they can work more as needed. Each store needs 3.

    I worked at Dollar Tree full-time (more than an year)

    Pros

    Great starter job and thats it.

    Cons

    Hours are crappy for associates and asst managers. I worked at dollar tree for a year, for the first 7 months I worked as a cashier, frozen food captin and clipstrip captin and than I applied to be an Assistant Manager and got the position. It was all good for a while but things started to take a turn for the worst. I was told I was going to be full time but was only working part time hours, the pay was okay but it wasn't much of an increase from an associate. My store manager was not the best after a while always complaining about things that was her responsibility. It's not hard to move up in this store and there is a really high turn over as well. Also some of the newer asst were qualified for things that i wasn't and i had been there longer and in the asst manager position longer.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Change your attitude and give a fair pay to everyone who deserves it.

    I worked at Dollar Tree

    Pros

    The best thing was helping the customers. Second was the coworkers. Corporate was great to work with.

    Cons

    Demanding job with no recognition, low pay, and incompetent manager and incompetent district manager. As full time assistant manager there weren't enough hours in the day to get things done.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Employee appreciation and higher wages. Raises that are more than 3% ....that's an insult.

    Pros

    The people i worked with were nice

    Cons

    My manager hardly in the store during normal business hours. And i had to go into work behind a lazy part time manager who had a bad attitude . The store was never clean. It has just on the bottom shelves 2 incest thick. I have only been with the company 3 months and already dissatisfied with the job.

    Former Employee - Dollar Tree Store Manager in Jonesville, MI (US)

    I worked at Dollar Tree full-time (more than 5 years)

    Pros

    Dollar Tree was amazing!! I started there as a shy timid 19 year old girl and left there a very outspoken and driven 25 year old women. I opened a store in Jonesville MI and it was the best experience of my life!! Hiring training and working side by side with my own team was amazing. I was very blessed to have selected such an amazing group of people. I learned so much with Dollar Tree from the business end of things and schematics all the way to really making your customers feel like they mattered. I will carry the things I learned within that company with me for the rest of my life. I learned how to be a bold, confident, outgoing, strong willed business woman there.

    Cons

    The only con is the jealousy factor that took place. Had a certain store manger not been upset that I was taking over her store after my temporary step down, I would have never left the company. I wanted to work my way as far up the chain as I could. She pretended to be fine with it and acted happy for me but was behind my back trying to get cashiers to lie about me so she could get me fired. All of our cashiers loved me so they would tell me everything. My DM was stuck between a rock and a hard place so I very sadly very graciously walked away before the name I had worked so hard to build was destroyed.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Keep your good employees and get rid of the bad. Don't be afraid of demoting someone just because you don't want to bruise there ego or hurt their feelings........after all not everyone is true tree material!!!
