    Pros

    Easy to attain starter job for acquiring the cash handling and management. Teller, Station Agent, Assist. manager etc.

    Cons

    Pays in the lower percentile for ALL JOB TITLES. This company's policies seem greedy in they're nature. Over work with low pay. You will be asked to perform task outside of your job description often. Policies help bread vile and disrespectful managers who assume impunity over lesser paid workers regardless of competence or socialization skills. No commission on sales. Low rewards for talents shown in the workplace. Little to no increase in work hours. No employee perks such as discounts...only suspicion of theft. I think this is all a response to the current economy and raising company cost/liabilities such as healthcare for full-time workers. and silly fines etc. Lastly, keep in mind this is a low end retail business...customers will reflect this...there is room for conflict over very insignificant amount of change and overall rowdiness of customers.

    Advice to Management

    There is a great need for better organizational skills and professionally on part of the store managers.

    Pros

    Room for growth to a certain level. Good benefit package.

    Cons

    Once you get to a certain level it becomes all politics and on any additional growth and who knows who.

    Advice to Management

    Promote from within in upper management situations more than doing now. Your turnover will be lower because if you are promoting from within they already know the dollar tree way.

    Pros

    Great co-workers fun to be around,very large company,over 12k locations if you include Family dollar and Deals

    Cons

    Very difficult to run lower volume stores,you never have payroll to run a store at bear minimum.The salary is sometimes not worth it.At 45k I was considered at the higher end of the spectrum but there was many weeks I had to work 7 days,12 hours just to survive ......that put me a almost minimum wage.

    Pros

    Coworkers and customers were friendly.

    Cons

    No set schedule. Every week was different, which made it difficult to make any plans. Probably lead to the turn over as well.

    Advice to Management

    Make a set schedule. Use people's strengths, don't have a person great at stocking cashiering knowing they get anxiety at the front. Checklists are useless when you write must complete everything on the list when others were also supposed to be completing the same things. Not a single day was I able to complete everything so never felt like anything was accomplished. There are several shifts and should be dispersed evenly and swapped each week so just one person isn't always doing the same thing
