Dollar tree is a very easy going work place not really a hectic job although through out the holidays it gets very busy and a little out of the ordinary but nothing one can't handle. Although it does depend on the location that you choose to work in.
Working for Dollar Tree was a satisfying experience. The management was extremely competent, friendly, and tolerant of all kinds of people and culture. I would recommend this job to anyone and while the pay is not that great, the overall experience more than not often made up for what was lacking in my wallet.

A day at work is like cleaning house! I learned Customers first! Cool manager Tanya!!!! We keep the store clean. The customers children. The hardest part of my job is lifting a box of beer mugs! End day clean up!!!
My first job. Not a terrible place to work at for your first job. Pay was what you would expect, you get paid every two weeks. Unpaid 10min break. Store was small so it wouldn't really get too crazy with customers. And was easy to clean up after closing.

Friendly environment Customer Service are use all the time Flexible in hours but Associates hours are limited to certain amount I enjoy my new manager Shes fair.I still new a better paying job I have acquired a new skill and that would be cashiering The store requires restocking products back to the shelves I met the General Manager and she was nice and knowledgeable The store I work at carry alot of material
A typical day at work includes not much of anything. You either stock or ring with little variation, and often if you're ringing you're left with nothing to do. I learned how absolutely irrelevant trying is at a retail job, having worked there for over two years and never getting a raise until the state raised the minimum wage. The store manager cares little for his employee's personal lives and often changes their schedules without contacting them, but the assistant managers go above and beyond to keep the store running.
inconsistent hours (25 one week, 8 the next, etc.), low pay

It was ok money & job experience was a good thing but short breaks over worked under staffed . i also didnt like having short hours and being expected to complete so many tasks in the few hours i did have. The location was far from where i lived.

Job is pretty easy, follow direction, use common sense, and be prepare to actually work and advancement is pretty quick. I see alot of negative reviews and unless you know the situation.Dont be quick to judge. Dollar tree sells everything for a dollar. Of course wages are not going to be 10+ unless you are in management. Again..Easy job. Key points..be prepare to work hard, follow directions, ask questions and give awesome customer service

during the course spent at dollar tree I had 4 managers, each time I tried to be promoted I was told yes and then passed over for absolutely no reason other then the simple fact that they knew someone or had the employee before. would not recommend working here for long periods of time.
