assistant store manager (Former Employee), Salisbury, NC – April 11, 2014
Pros: vacation pay for managers
Cons: working on breaks and lunches
Hardest part of the job was dealing with managers that did not communicate things that were needed to do the jobs. Also had difficulty with management not following dr restrictions because they want the job done either way.

It was a great job if it was the only one you have. You only received 5 hours a day maybe 4 days a week unless someone called in, which was basically everyday. other than that it was a fun work experience because of the customers.
Assistant Store Manager (Former Employee), Lake Havasu City, AZ – April 10, 2014
I loved everything about the job the customers and co workers! It was an awesome job! The best part of the job was informing the customers about new products! I loved being assistant manager. Being in management taught me no matter what job I have I would like to excel in it! The hardest part of the job was seeing someone who was disappointed person – more... leaving the store. The most rewarding part of the job was making somebody's day while they were happy leaving and the feeling hat I had something to do with it! – less
Assistant Manager (Current Employee), Rantoul, IL – April 10, 2014
Working at Dollar Tree is a great experience. Being with this company involves multitasking in a fast paced, friendly environment and can be quite rewarding to ensure the customers and employees alike are satisfied. It has taught me managerial skills, customer service, and to work independently as well as part of an energetic team. The most enjoyable – more... part of the job is when customers leave happy with the store and I know I pushed myself to do the very best I could have that day. – less
I liked working there but I didn't get any hours after the Christmas season.
Dollar Tree (Former Employee), Walnut Ca – April 8, 2014
Pros: calm work enviornment
Cons: no hours
During the holiday season the days were very hectic and I would only be on the schedule for 4 hours and I would end up working 6 to 8 hours because the store was so hectic. In the beginning I only got like 2 -4 hour shifts a week. Then as I started working there more I was called in for non scheduled shifts and I took them and began to get 4 scheduled – more... shifts a week. Then everything changed and I was called once after new years day and nothing since then. – less
Cashier (Current Employee), Pembroke Pines, Fl – April 8, 2014
There is no real teamwork in this workplace. There is very little training but high expectations for new employees. The demand for work completion is unrealistic for the amount of employees working at one time.

Cashier (Current Employee), Milton, WA – April 7, 2014
Pros: fun and friendly
Cons: lack of hours due to the season
In the nine months I have been with this company I have gotten to learn numerous skills. A typical day as a cashier is scanning items for a customer and handling money. When I was free of customers I was facing my sections of the store and restocking if needed. On days I recover, that consists of facing and gathering items that don't belong and putting – more... them back. – less
CASHIER (Former Employee), Ann Arbor, MI – April 6, 2014
Pros: 10 minute required breack
Cons: benefits, seasonal, poor management
A typical day at work was 5-8 hours, I learned how to run dollar tree's cash register and count down the drawer. The management was not as organized and I would have liked and it was really all over the place but overall everyone I worked with was really supportive, nice, and always had positive attitudes. The hardest part of my job was trying to unload – more... shipments from the truck. The most enjoyable part of my job was being able to help customers find their products and get them in and out of the store as efficiently as I knew how. – less
Full Time Assistant Store Manager (Former Employee), Damariscotta – April 5, 2014
Nothing good about working there. Bad pay. They lie when they say full at first its 40hr a week then they drop you down to 35. You would have to call people and tell them they cant come to work when sales were down.
