    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 Management

    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 Management

    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!

    Pros

    If you have the right boss she or he can work around your schedule

    Cons

    the hours suck sometimes because they are always cutting them, and if you are part time you can't get over 25 if manger and if cashier it is 15 to 20 and 20 if you are lucky.

    Pros

    Room for growth to a certain level. Good benefit package.

    Cons

    Once you get to a certain level it becomes all politics and on any additional growth and who knows who.

    Advice to Management

    Promote from within in upper management situations more than doing now. Your turnover will be lower because if you are promoting from within they already know the dollar tree way.

  7. Easy job, employees sucked.

    Pros

    Coworkers and customers were friendly.

    Cons

    No set schedule. Every week was different, which made it difficult to make any plans. Probably lead to the turn over as well.

    Advice to Management

    Make a set schedule. Use people's strengths, don't have a person great at stocking cashiering knowing they get anxiety at the front. Checklists are useless when you write must complete everything on the list when others were also supposed to be completing the same things. Not a single day was I able to complete everything so never felt like anything was accomplished. There are several shifts and should be dispersed evenly and swapped each week so just one person isn't always doing the same thing
