    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.

    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

    Pros

    It's an easy job and you can work yourself up pretty quick if you have a good work ethic.

    Cons

    MINIMUM WADGE. And managers in most of the stores always hate what there doing and bring people down and create a lazy staff who does not care. I have been in four different stores and on two states all the same ..

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Learn to judge new employes better, work on getting better pay

    Pros

    I liked the laid-back feel. The actual work itself was not challenging. I found managers very understandable and likable.

    Cons

    While I had no problem with management, I know that quite a few employees were prone to quitting. I dislike that the closing shift cashiers are required to drive all the way across town to the bank to deposit the money every night. I never had a weekend off.

    I have been working at Dollar Tree part-time (more than 3 years)

    Pros

    Fast paced, Customers were excellent to help. Store Manager is there to help you develop your skills. Great first job for an assistant manager position. Bonuses for reaching sales and margin goals.

    Cons

    Biggest con is that the schedule is not consistent and may change during work week depending on truck loads. Hours are limited for scheduling, so this entails the managers do most of the stocking and upkeep of the store.

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

    Pros

    I had great hours i chose to work early shifts 4am 5am and was able to spend the afternoons with my family. when working on the sales floor your meet alot of great people but like anywhere there are a few bad apples. Made some great friend ships with coworkers and management. And if need i would work at other stores within our area.

    Cons

    But due to the unorganized and horrible work ethics of the management in all the stores Ive worked at there was no way that i would recommend this job to anyone.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    You need to evaluate your company's management and find who can do a simple job of managing their time right and find people that are upbeat about working their job not just willing to do it.

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

    Pros

    The other employees were like family.
    5 hour shifts make it easy to work around for part time job

    Cons

    You spend more time moving things around than anything else.
    Corporate has little care for their employees
    Who wants to work 1 shift a week?
    5 hour overnight shifts for 9 bucks an hour are simply not worth the time/energy

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Have common sense
    Instead of following every rule in the book, adapt to certain situations and work with them.
