    I have been working at Dollar Tree part-time (more than an year)

    Pros

    I lucked out with a fantastic general manager. That, in itself, made all the difference in wanting to come to work. Job is extremely easy to learn. You get what you put in. It's a really good place for those who are wanting to get retail experience but that's about it. I'd come back IF my old GM was still there. It's rewarding to be able to motivate the store associates despite store conditions and problem-causing customers. It's not terrible. Just walk in through the week and observe the store, the managers demeanor, the overall attitude of the employees, and that will give you a clue on whether or not to fill an app. That's what I did and I interviewed the GM without him knowing I was interviewing. Fantastic person.

    Cons

    Because of the nature of the job, one is bound to work with less-than-desireable employees. If the company is desperate to keep workers, nothing gets done about the workers who cause problems for the other employees. As an Assistant Manager I had to work with another Asst. Mgr. who made things a living hell for employees. Even if the GM wants to do something about it, he or she can't because of micromanaging from Corporate. The work can get quite monotonous.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Corporate: Stop the favortism, make time for proper training, and really listen to the employees - they experience what you don't see and can often give good insight on how to deal with store issues.
