GENERAL MANAGER (Former Employee) – Leesburg, VA – June 6, 2018
Dollar Tree is a stable employer. It is respectful workplace. A fast paced, always changing day to day operation. I had the flexibility to "think outside of the box" with merchandising and floor plan set up as each season change. Product rotation and sell through was fast paced and fun.

Easy environment, simple math involved with everything being a dollar including your paycheck at the end of two weeks. Perfect job for a teenager, kinda scary if you're still 30+ years old and okay with making a little over minimum wage.
Dollar Tree Cashier (Former Employee) – Peoria, AZ – June 18, 2018
The typical work day is cashiering, and when their are no customers you are Stocking products. The management is productive. If they see that you need help they will help you figure out the best way to get it done.
Pay is not conducive to the amount of work that is required. As an Assistant Manager the pay should be minimum &40,000. The standards are low, its a dollar tree and they treat the employees as if their worth is a dollar.

Dollar Tree is a face pace job and very simple. I enjoyed stocking and taking care of customers. It wasnt a hard job at all, it was kind of hard to get to work at the exact time i had to work because of the bus schedule and having someone watch my child.

They state there are opportunities for moving up & advancing in the company, but when you apply for them, you either get no response from HR or a response stating your going to be contact, but they don't follow thru to advise you if your being considered.
Free medical if you are single and an hourly employee.
Cashier (Former Employee) – Portland, OR – June 18, 2018
I worked for dollar tree for 2 years, at first they gave me almost 40 hours a week. It was great the managers liked me, I did my job, I showed up when no one else would. About a year and a half into working here my manager transferred to another store to help turn it around and the new manager only gave me 4-12 hours a week. It was not enough for me to live on. I don't know why the new manager cut my hours. They hired a bunch of new people and gave them the hours instead.
Cashier (Former Employee) – Toledo, OH – June 17, 2018
I liked working for this company. Staff was nice but wasn’t very organized. Shifts are a little every where meaning one day you could start at 7 am and the next you could be working the closing shift. If you aren’t use to working fexible hours it could throw you off. But the job is a lot of fun and the customers are usually very kind.
You do EVERYTHING for little pay, does not follow safety procedures
Sales Associate (Current Employee) – Tennessee – June 17, 2018
Only management is full time. They employ a small pool of managers then a large pool of part time employees to keep cost low, as only a very tiny portion of employees will receive benefits, hours, and higher wages.
You get paid minimum wage to do the job of a full-time employee at any other retail chain, only difference is you get less hours. You're not hired as just a cashier or stocker... you're hired as everything, just short of management duties.
At my store, it was one manager one employee per shift. Manager usually stays all day stocking/managing while one part-time employee cashiers, cleans, and tries to stock. You have to check someone out, but when the line is empty (called "down time" even though that implies a rest, which it isn't) RUN to try and stock, but you only ever get maybe 30 seconds to a minute to stock before you have to RUN back to register. If you don't notice a customer fast enough before a manager, they'll call you to the front which is sometimes humiliating because you now look rude to the customer. So, essentially, they have you doing two or three bad jobs at once for the bare minimum of a wage.
I also did not like how you only have a $3 limit to being short/over at the till. Most places allow $10 short/over. It's seriously not surprising the turn over rate is so high, because you go over $3 at least once a week or so. It's human nature; you miscount, or the customer gets angry and you just slip up trying to get them through. But do that 3 times, and you're fired. It's not practical.
My store did not follow safety protocols. I still don'tmore... know where fire exits or extinguishers are. At least 3-4 times a week the "break room" (one chair in a tiny corner of the store room next to a 1990's microwave, covered in trash) is blocked by piles and piles of heavy boxes. When not blocked, the "break room" is surrounded closely on all sides by leaning piles of boxes, one of which could topple and injure someone. Apparently you're supposed to do a monthly safety meeting, instead they have us just check a box online saying we did when we didn't.
Management is nice. But nice management doesn't make up for poor company ethics and practices.less
Low wages, too much expected of one person, little to no help, outdated tech, can only be $3 short/over
Works around a schedule, experience, usually gives you days off if you give 2 week heads up, nice people
Under staffed and lack of strong management.. cannot complain to corporate because they don't listen to their employees. only if you're in management. Only one cashier most of the time unless management knows the big boss is coming in, then she's right on key.. Management is slacking and disrespectful to employees

Dollar Tree is probably a great company to work for in the right place. The most enjoyable part of the job is the interaction with the customers, and knowing that they appreciate you being apart of Dollar Tree.
Cashier/Stocker (Former Employee) – Lake Park, GA – June 16, 2018
I very much enjoyed my coworkers and awesome management!!! However, I believe that the management and employees of the company should have been compensated a bit more within a reasonable pay scale, due to the duties carried out by each worker...
General Manager (Former Employee) – Mays Landing, NJ – June 16, 2018
Dollar tree is a starting experience opportunity, they could be more than just a numbers company one person means more than various numbers of employees, these values lead to more than can be imagined, and fewer lost then they plan or expect for. companies these days fail to have a crew who looks for those diamonds in a rough that nobody really looks for or recognizes and not taking them serious automatically loses that person will to love the company as thier own, imagine wawa it's to a point where you have to know somebody to get in, and people are fighting to get in with incentives they offer that other companies barley offer to higher management, thus you can grab 5 great people instead of 1 in a million, they are quick to point a finger at the lowest level employee because the higher ups are to busy pushing a dream which can make a company beautiful and great throughout time but while writing and assuming they are being followed without the hours and manpower needed for it to carry thru the correct way they forget to show it and give it to the people with a why and a explanation on why it's something that gives all a benefit even if for just the company he who values his job will except with open arms. why is it worth saving your job or losing a invaluable person to prove a point that higher positions dont have ties nor experience with those who actually create their ideas and make them possible those same ideas that those employees probably already created and enforced but will get no credit nor be excepted if that higher up has something to lose, who can do it bettermore... then those on the field. life is very hard to devote it to a company that lives off hope instead of creating it, who's plans means machines products and dollars and not those who make it possible and save it for them and create the continuous chain of great versus last years triesless
few great leaders, opportunity to grow and learn for future career or advancement
low pay for whats needed and demanded, small pipe line unless created by the few that love thier job
Stocker (Current Employee) – Myrtle Beach, SC – June 16, 2018
This company was a job that I enjoyed at first: As time went by my hours started disappearing, until I now work only five (5) hours a week at the rate of $9.30 with $1.00 of this being the night shift pay. When I started working for this company I was getting around 20 hours per week. It cost my nearly as much in gas as I make now at 5 hours a week. The atmosphere has drastically changed over the past 5-6 months.
