    Pros

    The pros would be that you have opportunities to move up in the company as long as you're willing to put extra work into it and truly want to move up in the company.

    Cons

    Some of the employees are lazy and call in a lot

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Hire people who truly want to work and who will try hard to do and be their best.

    Pros

    The company offers pretty fair work life balance, decent benefits, freedom to make decisions, friendly customers, a good place to start your career.

    Cons

    There are not whole lots of cons, but better upward mobility would be nice, along with a lower copy for medical benefits.

    Pros

    People are really social and make the workplace fun to be at.

    Cons

    It's pretty hard to get a raise. I worked there for a few years,staring at $7.25 and a year or two later I was only at $7.45

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Review employee work ethic and dedication and consider them for raises more often.

    I have been working at Dollar Tree full-time for more than a year

    Pros

    Stable company with lots of opportunity for advancement regardless of tenure. Good monthly bonus program.

    Cons

    Very tight payroll, the current freight processing system needs to be overhauled. The company needs to have security in urban and city stores to reduce high shrink.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Listen to your Store managers and value their input after all we are the ones running your stores. Proper Freight processing is vital for the store's profitability therefore it is extremely important to have seperate freight hours based on the size of the weekly deliveries.

    Pros

    Great people to work with, management is very receptive and aware of the work environment.

    Cons

    Salary is mediocre. Granted, it is Dollar Tree, so one can't expect a stellar salary. Company policies are followed in spirit, but depending on the supervisor's prerogatives, the literal applications may get lost. It's also a difficult company to establish a career in.

    I worked at Dollar Tree full-time for more than 5 years

    Pros

    I loved how easy/simple any and all of the work was and customers were great.

    Cons

    Corporate, HR department did not care too much about employees. Sometimes I would be forced to work Open-Close multiple days in a row, they made me quit my outside job/hobby because they wanted to dominate my time, and they made me stop going to church on Sunday mornings because I was required to work instead.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Your employees are valuable! Value them! Especially your long-term LOYAL employees that stuck with you for many years only to be treated like trash and set up to be fired or terminated.

    I worked at Dollar Tree full-time for more than 3 years

    Pros

    As long as you have a district manager that comes in the store and does what they are supposed to do then the store will operate smoothly employees are happy and everything is good. Pay is not excellent but it also is not terrible compared to other employers.

    Cons

    Crazy retail hours...not being able to call off or take full vacations

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Corporate should be on top of their store level operations. There is a lot of theft and employees working off the clock, and other unethical things going on...get on top of things, your losing amazing workers because of this!!!!!!!!!!

    Pros

    Scheduales are flexible.
    If you speak spanish then you are automatically promoted to assistant manager.

    Cons

    There are no raises, even if you have worked there a long time.
    You have to do way more that it is worth for minimum wage.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    There should be raises when you are a loyal employee. The store where i work at, the employee is there for less than a month and they leave.
