Sales Associate (Former Employee) - Manassas, VA - February 2, 2020
Within the time working at this establishment was a mixed experience, I've dealt with meeting good people as well as people causing problems within the store. developed friendships with a few co-workers and assistant managers, The downside for this place was standing in one location ringing up customers the whole shift and not leaving on time when needed and also the pay was very low.
People, everything was one dollar
Really short breaks, not leaving on time after completed shift, low pay, no room for growth
Part-Time Cashier (Former Employee) - Manassas, VA - December 20, 2019
This was my first job, so i took it without a thought. I typically cashiered and "recovered", which consists of cleaning the messes customers make throughout the day while shopping. Not my first choice of job.
The Manager of my dollar tree is a nice understanding man, never had any issues with him. Other employees weren’t the smartest people- mostly teenagers and old men working there. Schedules weren’t made till the start of the week- so it’s hard to plan around your work schedule
Relaxed environment not a bad place to work if you like working 8 hours a week on minimum wage. Everyone talks about each other and they don’t value employees who have worked there for years management gives hours to who they’re friends with.
Stocker Associate (Former Employee) - Burke, VA - March 19, 2019
It is a good job to start off with but the management really needs work. They do not care about employees at all. The payment is minimum and it is just not worth it. You have to deal with rude customers everyday and clean after the mess they leave.Also, you just have a 10 minute break.
Cashier (Former Employee) - Fairfax, VA - March 16, 2019
The work is pretty simple. Hours are available. Somewhat. I was with the company for many years. Build relationships with regular customers. I thought I was doing well. When asked for a pay raise or job advancement you will receive the runaround. AT the end of my time there. I felt as though a carrot was dangled in front of my face like a mule. Asking me to keep moving forward with little to no reward.
Cashier/Customer Service (Former Employee) - Chantilly, VA - March 10, 2019
I would arrive at work and either return products to correct isles. Return merchandise and/or shipped materials to appropriate isles or work check out as the cash register. The hardest part of my job was on shipping day when we had to organize the backroom with all of the new boxes that just arrived. The best part of the job was the employees that I worked with.
Cashier and Sales Associate (Former Employee) - Sterling - November 5, 2018
I liked working at the Dollar Store in Sterling Park Va. The customers were friendly, my manager was nice and the cash register was very easy to use. Why I left was because the hours and money were awful and there wasn’t that much of an opportunity for advancement.
Easy work, nice manager and coworkers, friendly customers
On a typical day at work i usually clocked in and started on an aisle that my manager told me to do. I learned patience with customers and with myself. The hardest part of the job was truck day, because it was fast pace with heavy boxes. The most enjoyable part of the job was the people at Dollar Tree, they're very nice and very funny.
The customers were easily the best part of this job. A lot of locals with low incomes did their grocery shopping at our store, so a lot of familiar, friendly faces came in all the time. I only wish they paid a livable wage or i would have never left possibly
