Store Manager Interview

Store Manager
Phoenix, AZ (US)

I applied online and the process took 6 weeks - interviewed at Dollar Tree.

Interview Details applied online and was contacted by a DM over 3 weeks later to come in during a job fair. Was greeted by 2 very friendly DMs who turned out to be very nice. Typical interview they are just looking for the right person for the job and part of it was them making sure I understood that the job would be a lot of stocking because the average store moves quite a bit of product.

Interview Question – nothing...go in with confidence. That seems to be what they are looking for.   Answer Question

Reason for Declining – I had applied for a position in the city, but was offered one that was almost an hour away instead. When Dollar Tree hires, DMs hire for their district and that can mean any store in their district. Needed a job that was closer without the commute.

Na Interview

Na
Rohnert Park, CA (US)

I applied in-person and the process took 3 days - interviewed at Dollar Tree.

Interview Details It's just a regular process where you interview with a district manager and regional manager. If you pass the interview then you go into a 6 week training process where you learn policies and procedures. If you are coming from outside of the company then you will have very hard time. This company is very fast paced and once you fall behind you are practically never catching up.

Customer Service Specialist Interview

Customer Service Specialist
Gulf Shores, AL (US)

I applied in-person and the process took 2 days - interviewed at Dollar Tree in February 2013.

Interview Details The interview was simple, basic simple questions. Honestly if you need a job this is where to go. They will refuse to talk money with you, because its whatever minimum wage is. This place relies on paying bottom dollar for anything. How do you think everythings a buck? They sacrifice quality for volume.

Interview Question – Basically I was hired on the spot.   Answer Question

Negotiation Details – They were desperate and were hiring anyone.
