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

    Pros

    They hired quickly and easily. Training did not take long and was able to start working almost immediately when they finally trained me.

    Cons

    Lack of professionalism. No communication (had many shifts cancelled on the same day without notice from them). Lack of respect and responsibility amongst staff. The store manager avoided calls and texts.

    Advice to Management

    Better communication and your standard of professionalism in the work place. I should not have to pursue my boss or find out as I arrive at the store that my shift was cancelled.

    I worked at Dollar Tree part-time

    Pros

    Great for someone looking to enhance their resume, learn a lot of transferable job skills. Nice people , fun products.

    Cons

    American owned. No benefits. Very low pay scale. Lack of training, inconsistent schedule, Short break.

    Advice to Management

    Let your employees have the full 8hr shift (instead of 7.5) so they can have a second (10min) paid break. Pay key holders ( assistant managers)better. $11.90 is unacceptable for the amount of responsibilities they have and extra work that they do. It barely exceeds the wage of your cashiers !

    I worked at Dollar Tree part-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    *Good place to start off.
    *Reasonable managers.
    *Get to know your regular customers a lot.

    Cons

    *Under-staffing issues, especially during rush hour.
    *Upper management is completely unreasonable and is literally stingy.
    *Constant shoplifters left and right, no in-store security to watch them.
    *A lot of unreasonable requests from upper management to ASMs and cashiers, while expecting them to double or even triple their workload.
    *No discounts or benefits.

    Advice to Management

    Your managers are doing fine. Upper management is the whole damn problem. PRIORITIZE YOU EMPLOYEES IF YOU CARE ABOUT MAKING A $1.25 SALE!!!
