    I have been working at Dollar Tree

    Pros

    Staying busy and organized is what I know. I been in customer service for about 16 years and as a manage . I understand working smarter and not harder.

    Cons

    The down side i could see would be not having what a customer is looking for on hand , nothing like an disappointed customer.

    Pros

    all of my coworkers and managers are extremely friendly, the work is not difficult and upper management is always willing to work around your schedule

    Cons

    the pay sucks--but thats more of a corporate thing--and the hours are not that great, the customers are surprisingly stupid 90% of the time

    I have been working at Dollar Tree

    Pros

    At it's basis, a very easy job. Can be a great first job, but overtime can become very demanding of senior employees

    Cons

    HORRIBLE pay, lots of people in management just there for the paycheck, internal promotions take FOREVER. Even though the company has a strict non-fraternization policy, it is not enforced.

    I have been working at Dollar Tree

    Pros

    The Local Corporate Leaders are very supportive. They provide an environment for making mistakes and learning. There is an opportunity to bonus monthly.

    Cons

    One benefit that is dangled during the interview is 'work life balance'. It was expressed to me that the salary is low but in return this was one of the perks. I have not experienced this.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    As a nuts and bolts company, the lack of investment in training and a better salary, has contributed to the high turn over in Store Managers and ASM's. Invest in the people and they will stay with you. Your commitment to promoting from within is commendable but the commitment to grow these leaders doesn't match.
