I like working with the public so working at the Dollar Tree was a fun job to me. I always tried my best to make sure all customers were checked out in a timely manner. And always greet customers with a smile and welcome them to the store.

Productive, fast paced, and fun to work for
Assistant Manager (Former Employee), Concord, NCAugust 19, 2014
Pros: good co-workers, good management, and a good company that likes to promote within the company
Cons: felt like the assistants should be paid more for the amount of hard work we put in.
A typical day there was busy, busy, busy. I learned so much from this company. It taught me how to be a good people person, a good problem solver, and how to have my employees under my shift to get the job done right and own time. My co-workers were the best employees and did a very good job for me on my shift. I enjoyed being a manager. I had to learn – more... how to be a quick learner and how to delegate tasks and make sure everything was done right and on time. The hardest part of the job was it wasn't easy pleasing every single customer but did my best to do so. I was successful at being a manager and was grateful to have the opportunity in my life to learn so much. – less

A work place that will make you doubt yourself
Manager (Current Employee), New JerseyAugust 19, 2014
Pros: everythings a dollar
Cons: no company loyality.
A typical day for me at Dollar Tree funny I lived in Dollar Tree. I spent more time there then in my home. I learned that no matter how hard you work, Dollar Tree will never appreciate it. Their are great hard working managers that lead by example and then there are other Dollar Tree managers that do nothing and get praised for it.The hardest part of – more... the job was not having no one standing by my side. Dollar Tree said "Be loyal to the company" funny cause they are not loyal to there employees. Dollar Tree only sees $ signs they don't care about ones health, family or even there concerns in the business aspect. The most enjoyable part of the job for me were the customers. Seeing the look on the faces when they saved money or when they saw I listened to there concerns and handled it ASAP. – less

Not employee oriented
Cashier/Stocker (Former Employee), Seattle, WAAugust 16, 2014
worked here very hard for over a year and a half. I only received one raise because of state laws not the company itself. New hires were receiving advancement opportunities before current employees. The store manager was very unorganized and unprofessional as well as irrational and racist. She would take coffee and other bribes by employees so they – more... could advance or receive more hours. by the time i decided to resign i went from 30+ a week to 8 hrs a week . that is something no one can live off of. I contacted corporate to address these issues many times. however nothing was ever done. So i made the choice to resign and seek new employment. I wold not recommend working here to anyone. It was the worst company I have ever worked for. – less

Hectic work place and no appreciation for workers
Assistant Store Manager (Former Employee), Nation wideAugust 15, 2014
Pros: everything is a dollar.
Cons: everything else.
Just what my title states. The atmosphere is very hectic. They give unreasonable deadlines for tasks to be completed. They do not pay employees enough for the work that they do. High turn over rates is what they want so they do not have to hand out their pitiful raises that end up being 2 percent of your minimum wage once a year. Shipping to the store – more... is atrocious having to unload 500-2,000 boxes individually off of a truck for up to 3 or 4 hours. if people hat Walmart for the way they pay and treat their employees they should loath Dollar tree – less

Great challenging job
Manager (Former Employee), Stevens Point, WIAugust 13, 2014
Pros: loved the job
Cons: long hours
I would go in a half hour before the store opened , do a store walk to reassure myself that the store was ready for the day, and note the items that needed to be addressed. Go to the office balance deposits and the safe . set up and assign cash drawers and put them in the registers. At this time I would check e-mails . tasked needed to be assigned and – more... any problems addressed. the day once the store was opened consisted of taking care of e-mail requests ,ordering merchandise, setting displays and endcaps .Merchandising. I would also do interviews, hire people. discuss store needs and issues with my assistants. Asset protection was always important. Daily planners were set. In the evening the store was cleaned and all returns put away . Damages recorded, deposits made and store closing And the most important of all customer service. – less

Friendly managers and co-workers
Head Cashier (Former Employee), Las Vegas, NVAugust 13, 2014
Pros: friendly co-workers
Cons: no place for growth
Employees and management got along really well. But this is not a company I would recommend to retire with. I worked for this company for over 3 years and only received two raises. I was always on time and never called off, as well as went above and beyond my job description. The regular customers that did come in were surprised I wasn't already a manager – more... because they knew what a strong, reliable worker I was. I enjoyed being a cashier with this company because the store always stayed busy which made time fly by. Overall, this company offered a nice work environment, but is not a place for growth. – less
