Stocker/Cashier/Customer Service (Current Employee) – Newnan, GA – February 25, 2018
The Dollar Tree I work at is in a prime location. But our manager has not taken the time to get to know the clientele he expects them to get to know him. He changes stuff around here for no reason. If he needed to run a register for a little bit he disappears and sometimes during the weekend he leaves the safe short changed. I have been there for 3 yrs and I only have $7.70 a hour to show for it. That is not the way you treat a loyal employee.

Work schedule is all over the place. Although it's better than having no job at all, I'm curious about the schedule for other employees. I wonder if anyone has any sort of consistency to their schedule. Also why it is that way.
Assistant Manager (Former Employee) – Salinas, CA – February 24, 2018
A typical day at work was mostly walking around re-stocking merchandise, bring in carts from the parking lot, cleaning up messes, working the till, sweeping/mopping the store and closing up at the end of the day by counting the earnings of the day. The experience I received there taught me to be me dependable and punctual, as well as being able to follow thru with directions. The Management was very helpful in guiding me in the beginning as well as handling customers.
Assisted customers with purchase Ran a cash register stock shelves reset sections of wall space put up and took down holiday items blew up balloons cleaned bathrooms, store fronts, windows, vacuum rugs
scheduled hours did not conflict with full time job
pay was bad, expected more than what was reasonable
It doesn't matter how good you do your job if you are not in the clique you are nothing. The managers generally give hours to people who they like and not who do the best work. The pay is low, the stress is high, and there is no sense of loyalty or team work. The managers are generally not professional. Hours are cut and given to others, depending on the favorite of the moment, there is no job security. People complain constantly but Toledo has zero jobs so people stay even if they hate it. Practically anyone can be in management and it shows. Upper management couldn't care less about anyone as long as they get their precious bonuses. Minimum wage for associates and management starts at 9 dollars an hour. It's a toilet.
It's a job
Very hard very stressful no benefits. The place is a side show.
Merchandising Manager (Former Employee) – San Antonio, TX – February 23, 2018
Come in prepared to work your tail off! The job is what it is, you learn how to properly set things to a planogram, how to restock, and properly life things. The management and employees have high turnover. The hardest part of the job was to ensure you were able to make up for people that wouldn't show up to work. The most enjoyable part of the job is to see what merchandise comes in.
Cashier (Current Employee) – Portage, WI – February 23, 2018
Register is pretty easy and everyone was helpful when I needed information about certain transactions or where products are. I enjoy interacting with the customers and helping them find what they need. It's a generally easy place to work with.
Cashier/Sales Associate (Former Employee) – Clio, MI – February 23, 2018
Dollar Tree is a fun, colorful store to work at, pretty lenient. Other employees are understanding. However the dollar tree i worked at was very unorganized. It was hard trying to find supplies that needed to be put on the shelves. Other than being un-organized i had fun while it lasted.
It isn't the best place to work, but it isn't the worst either. I didn't like all of the management that worked there or in the district, but then again where do you work that you like everyone? Anyway, it was a stepping stone in my work history.
short breaks, rude people you have to deal with, manager is jerky, you have to work holidays
