Current Employee - Assistant Store Manager

I have been working at Dollar Tree full-time (more than an year)

Pros

Small store
Great customer base
Not as many bosses to answer to as a bigger store
monthly bonuses

Cons

Limited hours
insurance is kind of expensive
if there isn't enough coverage you don't get to take your vacation
pay could be more for what i do

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Promotions are unfair. No matter how hard you work or how good your attendance is in order to get promoted to store manager you have to come from outside of the store. With in the past year a store has been through 4 store managers all hired from outside the company. None seem to last long. If someone is a good worker they should be able to get promoted

    I worked at Dollar Tree part-time (less than an year)

    Pros

    I honestly can't think of anything. They give you options for buy stock and stuff, however, they don't really pay you enough to be able to even afford that kind of thing either.

    Cons

    Lots of pressure to be perfect but work too quickly to achieve perfection. So you're in a lose lose situation, either you get everything done quickly but it's not done good enough or you spend time getting it right, and you've taken too long. They expect you to work on breaks if you're management. If you are with a customer and don't greet a customer that walks through the door you get reamed out. Treat/ view all customers as thieves.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    lighten up, pay your management and they'll want to work for you

    I have been working at Dollar Tree full-time (more than an year)

    Pros

    The job is not bad, as long as you stay away from management.

    Cons

    The company has a high turnover rate for managers that I feel was due to the fact that they expect managers to put in at least 60 hours or more each week in order to make sales goals. They don't allow part timers to get more than fifteen hours a week , which creates no sense of loyalty.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Allow part-timers to work more than fifteen to twenty hours a week, so that better workers want to stay. Stop expecting the managers to run the store, put out the majority of freight, and take up all slack left from not having enough employees. You are losing the best employees because of this.
