Who is Dollar Tree?

Bargain retailer Dollar Tree is committed to fun, focusing not on fulfilling customer needs as on enticing shoppers to have a good time perusing its adventurous aisles for items they had no idea they would find - and at surprisingly low prices. The nation?s leader among single-price-point dollar stores, we have more than 6,000 Dollar Tree and Family Dollar stores throughout the 48 contiguous U.S. states and in Canada, in convenient shopping spots such as malls and shopping centers. Dollar Tree offers a robust and varied online shopping experience as well, with the opportunity to buy in larger quantities than in our brick and mortar locations. An online shopper can download craft project information, and take advantage of online-only discounts as well. Feature pages include bargains specific to small business, educators, non-profits, crafters, and wedding planners.

Committed to being a good neighbor, Dollar Tree recently donated $500,000 in aid to Hurricane Harvey disaster relief. We are striving, as well, to remove from our store shelves products containing chemicals of high concern, and to sell only cage-free eggs.

Dollar Tree Interview Process

Dollar Tree recruits in numerous ways. On college campuses it offers students and graduates a robust Executive Development Program called CORE, which stands for Cultivating Outstanding Retail Executives. Suprisingly the bulk of its applicants come to Dollar Tree attention as store walk-ins, responding to a "We are Hiring" banner at the store. On Glassdoor.com, 81 percent of Dollar Tree employee reviewers state that walking into the local store is how they got their job. Dollar Tree has an online career portal, though only 13 percent of applicants come to Dollar Tree by way of its site.

The overall consensus among Dollar Tree employees reviewing on Glassdoor, is that a walk-in application for an hourly store position is nearly instantaneous. Many said that they completed the print application, and either had no real interview or were interviewed right at the cash register. Comments were about evenly divided among those who were offered the job immediately and those who returned home to get a same-day offer by phone. Online applicants talked of a week-long process.

Is Dollar Tree a Good Place to Work?

The overwhelming reason for Dollar Tree's poor 2.9 star rating on Glassdoor is its low wages. While Dollar Tree offers medical insurance, and a 401(k) with matching employer contribution, online reviewers complained about having to wait six months for health insurance, and the high premium for its coverage. On the plus side, employees noted that Dollar Tree is willing to adjust work schedules around employees' classes, and that the job is easy.

Only 43 percent of employees would recommend Dollar Tree as an employer.
