    Pros

    Nice time members, very organized shores, very good training, management is supportive, easy job tasks.

    Cons

    Part-time positions get few hours and it´s not easy to get full time position. Pay is not too much. High turnover.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    You should pay more to keep your employees.

    I have been working at Dollar Tree part-time (more than a year)

    Pros

    Nice co-workers and supervisors. Flexible hours for a busy student. Been working here for over a year and this is a good pocket money job.

    Cons

    My supervisors work very hard, but should be paid more/ receive more recognition from management. No benefits(even though they said they had some), sometimes paid incorrectly(did not get paid extra for holiday work), no raises(no matter how long you work there for).

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Should give good supervisors promotions and chances to move up the ladder. Have more realistic daily task goals for each store/employee. Too much work to do and so little time!

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

    Pros

    The store that I work at has managers and employees who actually care, but I hear that that is rare for this store. Minimum wage, basic retail job. Organized. Good hours.

    Cons

    Not very clean. Everything is dusty, and the bathrooms are often out of order.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Clean stuff up. Work on appearances, and it'll make the employees and customers all happier.

    Pros

    Always changing, trying to grow and expand. There are always opportunities for moving up within the company. Fast paced environment.

    Cons

    Minimum hour stores struggle to keep up with company's standards of "freight in 48". There is a lot of "trial run" with the company, such as new ideas they think would benefit, but never follow through, and it gets forgotten about.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Would like company to consider giving a certain amount of hours to smaller volume stores especially during conversion between seasons to reduce the amount of excess product leftover from that season that tends to get pushed to backroom, causing potential shrink.
