Dollar Tree Stores Inc Reviews
What is it like working at Dollar Tree Stores Inc?
"Conveyor Mechanic at Dollar Tree Distribution."
Machinery Maintenance Mechanic in Windsor:
Pros: Every day is different, zero monotony.
Cons: Seems like we (in the Maintenance Dept) are fighting against the front offices in order to get our job done.
Retail Store Manager in Grand Rapids:
Overworked with minimal payroll to run a business. As a store manager you are basically just an overpaid stocker and cashier. If you like to bust your neck with empty thank yous from corporate this might be the place for you.
"Dollar dollar, penny and dime."
Pros: Nice small retail environment, clear objectives, depending on area you have nice customers and ddpending on the site, nice coworkers as well. Flexible schedules are the norm here as well for part timers and to some extent assistant managers.
Cons: Everyone gets paid badly but have to work just as hard if not harder than bigger retail stores like Walmart. Managers are often always stocking or doing other work alongside the part time associates. You get a lot of customers because of the great prices which means a lot to clean up, stock, and organize. Also, their policy of only giving 20hrs a week to part timers and having 12-14 stockers makes it hard for a dedicated part timer to earn enough money to live from one job. Its even worse for assistants and managers who have 3x the work for only a dollar or two more an hour.
Pros: Work flexibility.
Retail Store Assistant Manager:
Pros: Interacting with people.work flexibility.perks.
Cons: The stress level.
"I am working because I love working with the public."
Pros: Talking and communicating with the people I serve. Listening to some of. Their stories. Knowing I have helped someone really makes me feel good.
Cons: They are cutting our hours because of store transformation.
Assistant Store Manager:
Pros: I've been there for so long I have a lot of regulars(customers). I like coming into work and seeing the smiles on my cashiers and customers when they see me. I like the hours because I drive my son to and from school so I get to close my store during the week.
Cons: What I like least is that the store I'm at is one of the biggest ones and when we don't make sales we have to cut employees and the first one to be cut is my floor help so that means not only am I doing my job I'm also wringing a register and cleaning the whole store plus putting every piece of merchandise back. I get pto and sick pay that I am hardly able to use because"it's not a good time" and it gets taken and I punch out for a unpaid 30 min break but don't actually take it I'm usually being called to wring on a register because there's a line.
