    I applied through a recruiter. The process took a weekinterviewed at Dollar Tree.

    Interview

    All she did was bring me in and ask me a few questions, didn't tell me anything real about the job or the store and candy coated everything. The store she stuck me with was a complete disaster but she didn't mention that or several robberies at all!

    Negotiation

    You come with a number and they will try hard to match it. They also get monthly bonuses while my past employer was quarterly. Honestly I'd rather have a little extra each month instead of waiting for 3.

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 2 daysinterviewed at Dollar Tree.

    Interview

    I was called for an interview 24 hours after I had applied. I interviewed with a district manager, who always dressed in sweatpants, and was very unprofessional. (coming from a well known retailer before this, I was shocked). I was told about the job, the position, and the training, and then asked if I thought I could handle the job. I said yes, so he gave me another time to come back and have an interview with his boss. I came back another day, and he was still dressed in sweatpants and a wrinkly polo shirt. His boss was dressed in a button down shirt and dress slacks, I was a little more impressed in this interview. He mainly asked me questions about how my last employer handled issues, training, etc and if I could get training materials from my previous employer for them to secretly use. Then asked if I could handle the job, I said yes, and they presented me with a job offer on the spot. This was the easiest interview in my life.

    Negotiation

    I negotiated a few things, very easy, I told them what I wanted and they said ok and made it happen.

    Application

    I applied in-person. The process took a dayinterviewed at Dollar Tree in February 2015.

    Interview

    I asked for the manager and turned in my application to him. He told me that he liked that I did ask for the manager instead of dropping it off "like all the others".
    The manager then asked me if he can interview me on the spot and I agreed.
    The interview was just about reviewing my application, salary expectation, schedule/hour availability, etc.
    The manager then said I was hired and that he would contact me in a few days for orientation/paperwork and that I bring in 2 forms of ID's and a green collared-shirt to be approved for my uniform.

    Interview Questions

    • Are you willing to do other job duties such as cashiering and/or stocking?   Answer Question

    Negotiation

    My advice: You'll have a better chance at getting hired if you ask for the manager instead of just dropping off your application with a random employee.
