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

    Pros

    Everything that they wanted you to do was outlined for you and you always had SOMETHING to do. You were never worried about just standing around

    Cons

    We had worksheets of things that the management wanted us to do, but they would always forget to give it out. You would work for 3 hours and the management would have a ton of things for you to accomplish between serving customers and would rarely understand when you wouldn't have time to complete a certain task.

    I worked at Dollar Tree part-time for more than 3 years

    Pros

    Dollar Tree is a good place to work, raises every sixth months to a year.

    Cons

    Dollar Tree pays the bare minimum. If you are not looking to pay bills and just have a little extra money in your pocket, then this is the job for you.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Raise wages, especially for manages, the pay for management is deplorable!!

    Pros

    Its a good starting point for a job and its easy to move up as long as your doing everthing right and its being noticed. I started working last November and i ended up becoming an Assistant Manager 7 or 8 months later.

    Cons

    The customers always expect for you treat them like high and mighty at all times, theres only so much you can do, reguardless of what it is some customers are never fully satisfied so it can get a little crazy in there.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Stay ontop of everything and make sure you know everything there is to know about your position.

    I have been working at Dollar Tree part-time for less than a year

    Pros

    It is a great company to work for considering at least at the store i am at every employee and mangers treat you like family. they always make sure iu have something to work on so you are not standing around doing nothing. customers are mostly elderly but very friendly. At my store we have received plenty of compliments of the cleanliness of the store and how much nicer it is than most others. the store manager lets you know how much she appreciates tou on a daily.basis.

    Cons

    Pay is not good and not much room for advancement.
