    I worked at Dollar Tree full-time (less than an year)

    Pros

    Great fast pace environment. Diverse range of customers. Daily employee bonuses.

    Cons

    Long hours when an employee calls in sick, or schedule conflicts.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    It would be nice if employers could manage employee's work schedules better. Single moms shouldn't have to work late hours just because other employee's that are students request nights and evenings off. They're in school during the day, why cant they work evenings and nights? Seems only fair moms should be given the same options as well, especially since child care is not only expensive, but hard to find good childcare in the evenings and nights, and especially on short notice if they are called in to fill in for an employee (student) that couldn't make their shift. Just be more understanding of your employees, and there would be lot less scheduling conflict and issues. I feel this would also decrease the turn over rate at which employees are hired and fired/quit.

    Application Details

    I applied in-person. The process took a dayinterviewed at Dollar Tree.

    Interview Details

    This is not that difficult of a company to obtain a job. You do need to be honest and show enthusiasm. My interview was with both the district and store manager, and both of them were impressed with my professionalism. I had minimum store manager experience with another company.

    I was expecting to take all sorts of tests to get this job, but my resume spoke for itself. You need to work well with people, be able to to show up at a moments notice, and make a few sacrifices to be able to put up with many things. You can expect new hires not to ever come back, or only work for a few days.
