Working for Dollar Tree was a great experience in customer service 101 and learning the art of multi-tasking.
The hardest part of the job was only getting four hour shifts at the beginning. My store was great at offering extra hours or being able to offer the coverage of other shifts. If you want to work, they want you to work!
My management team changed a bit as we were a training store and we saw some great transitions for staff members. Great sense of community within Dollar Tree.
A typical morning shift could include facing, emptying the return baskets, ensuring balloon orders were prepared and ready, answering the telephone, filling the fridges and helping customers. Closing the store included sweeping / mopping, collecting return items, facing and stocking was a constant feat throughout the day.
The coworkers at my Dollar Tree location were of all ages and each brought something different to our store. Were some were weaker, others were stronger. Great team overall.
First dibs on new products, great work-life balance, friendly atmosphere, easy-going
Head Office was not easily accessible, communcation and coupons could have been better discussed and planned
