    Pros

    Gained experience of running a store. Had medical and dental insurance.

    Cons

    Under paid, overworked, never appreciated. Family member passed while at work and there was no one to call for relief; no bereavement time so arranged fun al on 2 days off.

    Advice to Management

    While you are home with you feet up you have stores open on holidays and not to mention dealing with employees from all walks of life due to low pay and no back ground check. Consider that whIle they are following me to the bank w/ your $$.

    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

    Pros

    Easy to get hired. Dollar Tree hires any and every one with a valid social security number.

    Cons

    No back ground check for hourly employees. Currently I work with someone who served 16 years for murder, someone with domestic violence charges and one with theft. These a people verify bank deposits then follow me to the bank at closing since Dollar Tree is too cheap to have money picked up by armored car.

    Advice to Management

    Corporatet is home at night with their families leaving store managers to deal with people from all walks of like. Protect us with background checks!

    Pros

    I was able to gain experience as a cashier, so counting money and interacting with people. These are two good skills that many will need moving forward in their careers (especially people skills).

    Cons

    The store management lacked accountability from within which led to internal issues. Pay (minimum wage) does not match the work we had to do.

    Advice to Management

    Interact more with the employees and store management to be more on one accord with the stores needs.

    Pros

    Debt free Fortune 500 company with 5000 locations. Opportunity for advancement is great. I have never worked for a company with so many internal promotions. When other companies are cutting payroll, closing locations or just going out of business, DT is growing like crazy.

    Cons

    Store Manager position is very hands on.

    Cons

    Low pay for any position as much money as this company makes We felt like we were working in a sweat shop Always micro manage you get one thing done and its change it, Get freight to floor but no hours and with 2 people at any given time yea no not happening and full recovery with 2 people at closing and u have 30 min And never the proper equipment to do anything.

    Advice to Management

    Listen to your employees when we talk to you and tell you whats going on,If it were not for your employess You would not be in business treat us as you would want to be treated.When we call you with a problem donot brush us off,And if you say you are going to do something set an example and do it quit with excuses. You donot want them from us.

    Pros

    Good hours, pleasant atmosphere. A nice entry into the world of employment. Nice opportunity to get some experience under their belt. At least you won't be walking around without any funds. Stores are usually within waling distance to most city dwellers.

    Cons

    Relatively low pay. some stores have crappy management (mines didn't). Not much to complain about however, unless you want a solid full time job.

    Advice to Management

    None

    Pros

    Easy advance into management from associate position.
    ok benefits (For management).

    Cons

    From an Assistant Manager's point of view. Bad pay(You're expected to do as much work as a store manager, but get paid close to a cashier...), Impossible to achieve monthly bonus, ridiculous if not unrealistic expectations from upper management. Just overall too much work, headache and demands for the bad pay they give you.

    Advice to Management

    Treat your employees better and pay them what they deserve , after all they do all the physical/crucial work to keep your corporation functioning.
