dollar tree is a fun place to work at because you have cool stuff to work with there.

my typical day at work is that you get to learn new things. I learned how to use a box crusher machine. the management is good. I liked working with my co-workers they were fun to be around with. the most enjoyable part of the job was you get to help people and other co-workers also.
Cashier (Former Employee), Virginia Beach, VA – September 29, 2015
Cons: No career advancement, lot of free time
A typical day at Dollar Tree consisted of making sure your designated check-out lane for the day is neat and organized, restocking items as they run out and putting items back in the correct place. Coworkers and assistant managers were very friendly, there were never any interpersonal problems in the workplace. Most enjoyable part was getting to have enjoyable conversations with customers.

Pros: friendly work place
Cons: no health benifits
Working with dollar tree has been a great experience in learning and growing as a person. Dollar tree has been my first job so I was happy to learn as I grew with the company and continue to move up not only with the company but in my own life as well.
Cashier (Former Employee), Watsonville, CA – September 28, 2015
Pros: None, well it was close by but that is circumstantial.
Schedules where often incomplete or incorrect. You would have to call in Saturday just to find out if you work the next day which would ruin all chances of weekend plans. The assistant manager would often be in the office whilst other employees would slave away only to kept longer due to lack of assistance from higher ups. The main boss manager was okay and kind buy rarely saw them as they were often away or on vacation. Management would often converse among each other or customers for excessive amounts of time, yet be quick to judge and tell you to get back to work while all you are merely assisting a customer locate and item or answering a question. working here was horrible.
Store Manager (Former Employee), NV – September 28, 2015
Pros: Bonuses and Recognition
Cons: Work/ Life Balances
Fun and busy work environment. Everyday planning and updating in the store creating challenges. All about the numbers instead of how you personally grow and develop. Not enough constructive feedback or support from the outside. Expectations are high and not logical. When numbers are met you feel real good and do get the recognition.

the Dollar tree was not a bad place to work. you spent most of your time helping/checking out customers. occasionally you may get asked to come in and help unload the truck. is a decent job for those looking for a part time job.
Cashier (Former Employee), 4525 The Plaza Ste. Z Charlotte NC 28215 – September 24, 2015
I was paid 6.30 an hour and not allowed to work more than three days a week. I learned how to use an outdated cash register and handle rude people, that is it. My co-workers were sometimes helpful. The management did a poor job managing the store and other employees.
asst manager (Former Employee), chester,va – September 24, 2015
Pros: i loved most of my customers
Cons: district manager and above
dollar tree does not care about there employees all they are worried about is the bottom line. the customers that shopped at dollar tree were great. you might get on or two that are not so good. the manager that i had until march of 2015 was great then the one that was put in her place not so good he was lazy and stayed in the office would not come out to help.
fast paced, stocking shelves, weekly truck deliveries,
Merchandising Manager (Former Employee), Phoenix, AZ – September 24, 2015
Pros: monthly bonuses if we were over our estimated sales
Cons: the days were't long enough
I really enjoyed working for the Dollar Tree as I had the opportunity to take care of Customers needs, and manage the staff, in a positive manner. The employees and I made sure every one who shopped there walked away with a smile.
