CASHIER (Former Employee) – Germantown, MD – September 5, 2017
Dollar Tree was a fun place to work. A great place to meet all different types of people. It was a fast paced job. A typical day at work for me was to meet and greet customers and provide them with the best customer service. Stocking of merchandise and general cleaning of the store.

Overall, the coworkers at Dollar Tree lean on each other well. However, there is poor organization and communication from the top down. There are also unsafe working conditions, such as the stock room, which contains no shelving or other form of organization; boxes are stacked on top of one another like a mountain, rather than an organized stock room. The place is filthy overall, with there being large amounts of dust on the shelves and products; additionally, products commonly leak or are coming open because of poor packaging. The carpet is covered in stains and old bubble gum; the bathrooms are also run-down, with stained walls and doors (along with other noticeable vandalism).
Lastly, the training is rushed and poor (if completed); there is little explanation given of the duties to be performed. Also, employee paperwork is rarely filed on time, and employees (at least in my case) never receive a handbook.
coworkers are sympathetic to the working conditions
Poorly managed from the top down, unsafe work conditions, unpredictable hours, little to no compensation, poor training

Receiving Manager (Current Employee) – San Bernardino, CA – September 13, 2017
CAN BE STRESSFUL AT TIMES The facility was not built to process the volume that is expected to. Upper Management do not have a firm understanding of the processes. Very generous benefits package. Huge Emphasis on productivity and volume. Upper Management can be demeaning at times.

I enjoyed working for Dollar Tree. My manager was not hard on the employees. He was easy to get along with and willing to help the employees. Enjoyed working with the other employees and dealing with customers.
Shipping Clerk (Former Employee) – Savannah, GA – September 12, 2017
Working in the distribution center was hectic to say the least. They send you boxes from a conveyor belt and I was to load the trucks. If that was all I would have been fine, but they ended up having me run between three trucks on my own. I simply couldn't keep up the pace. The manager I had did what he could, I saw sympathy in him. But he also had a job to do, I never felt that I was ever under attack.
Full-Time Merchandising Manager (Current Employee) – Washington, DC – September 12, 2017
Fast paste work environment with few rewards. The work involved to sustain the store does not match the amount of workers or hours to do so. Hours are constantly cut and you are expected to do twice the amount of work for not enough pay.
Cashier (Former Employee) – Lynchburg, VA – September 12, 2017
For a part time job, this is great to work at. Everyone is friendly, even most of the customers. The job is easy to do, and I even had fun. The day goes by much faster when you can enjoy it by speaking with friendly people.
Stocker/cashier (Current Employee) – East Greenbush, NY – September 11, 2017
You have to be able to multi-task and work at a fast pace. While on register you have to keep your area clean and the front end stocked, put away items that the customers didn't want and cash customers out.
Working at dollar tree was temporary for me but in those 3 months of working there i learned more, met new cool people and gained more work skills in customer assisting, stocking merchandise, organizing shelves front facing making sure it looked full and well organized, and cleaning store when needed.
