I was hired there on may 20, 2009 as a cashier... Worked when they called me in.. On june 14 I was to report to work at 2:30 p. M. Nedless to say I did'nt feel good the night before which I worked until closing... Anyways I woke up late sunday called my manager at 4:15p. M told her I was sorry and that I will come in... She told me no, she already called somebody elese in... I said ok... Appologized... So on my next work day which was for wednesday I went in as scheduled... The manager on that night said they have some other employee working for me... Nobody called me. By the way the new employee was not there when I finally left which was 4:55 pm... Talked to my boss who hired me... He said everything was fine, that it's just a suspension 2week.. 2 1/2 weeks later her reassured me that I still had my job... That they just needed to put me in the system again... Don't look for another job I was told... Here I am no job... Thanks to you dollar tree managers and district manager...

    One District Manager that Im aware of has got to be the Kings of all shmucks.
    Scott acts like the high priest of the Corporation.Discriminates against women, making
    them feel inferior, probably due to his small sized manhood.Collaborates with his fellow
    men, only. You all know who he is, and he cant hide from that either.

    They should have called you to at least let you know something was going on (a write-up, suspension, etc.). If you do keep the job, work your butt off and prove them wrong about you. Then find a new job and leave. No sense trying to find a new job when your previous employer won't have good words to say about you. It only takes one bad incident that never lives a person down. But I have to agree with ipunchbabies. Hope you found something by now!

    I work at a Dollar Tree in California. And I hate the rules they keep adding to all the Dollar Tree Stores. I was an amazing worker. My manager would be very impressed with the work I do (I'm very fast paced, detailed person). As weeks went by my hours kept getting worse. And the people who work really slow ended up getting better hours than me it made me realize one thing these people were kissing up, as I
    Worked my ### off a fellow slow co worker would come up frequently and talk with the manager about their personal life. So it didnt matter how I worked I did not get great credit for the work I did. I really wanted to tell my head manager about this but I don't want to be the cause of getting someone in trouble, so I kept my mouth shut. 1 rule I thought was too strict was the til rule on how much we are supposed to have ($3.00 range) I thought it is way too small and unlike other stores we can make out the difference with our own money I ended up being $4.00 under and they ended up firing me. I thought that rule was way too stupid and strict. I'm glad I don't work there anymore all that job did was keep me away from doing anything I hardly made enough to go out or do anything.

    @Roben They don't fire you for being 4 dollars short and you're lucky they even let you slide being 3 dollars short. If you're not a complete [censored], or stealing from the company there is no reason your drawer should ever be off more than a dollar. But I know damn good and well they don't fire you for a 4 dollar shortage, unless this wasn't your first offense

    wise to dollar tree has its own rules because to become store manager only has to lie col Mr. coaching managers. I was surprised to see a client seen by the way this gentleman asked for the name and mark is called craig ranch and works in Las Vegas then I saw that it was stefany entrnando and then she is. now manager and rainbow moutain spring and then again saw kissing WITH MARK

    @eg101 Um... were you complaining, or just typing a bunch of random words? This is why you should read your post aloud, before posting.

    I personally work @ my local Dollar Tree as a Sale Associate. I worked on 5 different days last week, so I was given 2 days this week. I got woken up @ 7:51 (AM) only to be told my hours have been shortened. Got to love Dollar Tree!!!

    @Cashier1000 Oh i agree, managers forget to tell you wen they change the schedule, When they are upset at you your hours get cut. New employees don't have to work weekends n i have been there over 5 yrs and i still complain bout every other weekends and nope it won't happen. I don't care for managers who never say thank you when you go out of your way to do the extra chores that are required of us that the previous shift didn't do. Nothing changes at any store, sorry but i have heard it over n over. We hire our managers from with in the store (but only if the manager will let you) EQUAl is what is said. nebraska

    They dirty as [censor]!! My daughter has worked there for years. Worked her way to Assistant Manager. Someone called the store pretending to be someone from corporate needing a Green Dot transaction done over the phone because their system was down. My daughter didn't question it because they said they was from corporate. Gave her a name and everything. Hell she doesn't know everybody from corporate so she didn't know this person wasn't telling the truth. Well turned out to be a scam. I think it was the NEW district manager Greg Evans. She had to write a statement and he supposedly sent it in to corporate to see what would happen. He called her today saying that it was automatic termination. I think it's a bunch of bull! Then on top of that, her own [censor]in manager who is so afraid to open her mouth, wouldn't even stick up for her. I don't know how that [censor] even became a manager. I'm contacting the Board Monday morning. Might not do any good, but they gonna hear my voice!

    @Louise Rowe LOL. I'm an assistant manager at a Family Dollar and everyone is told and should know better than to do anything like your daughter did. Sorry to inform you, but that is an automatic fireable offense. They go over it so many times that you NEVER do any kind of transactions over the phone, no matter who the person says they are. Don't believe the company is in the wrong for firing her. She shold of known better and because she didn't that's really no different than her taking the money.

    I am wondering what the criteria is for hiring managers at Dollar Tree. I worked for them about 3 weeks right before Christmas. It was always, "Call to check the schedule. We don't have you in the system yet." Funny. I was given a temporary schedule because she wrote my time in under someone else's name. I know how to count money and used to run a register. But their registers are nothing like what I was used to working with. It would be easier to use the quantity key when a customer came up with 50 of the same item instead of having to scan EACH one. With a line building up behind them, this is most frustrating to other customers that shopped from nearby stores on their lunch breaks. I know I wouldn't want to wait in line for 5 or 8 minutes of my lunch break because the $$ tree manager has such control issues that she won't come over to help the cashier out with overriding the quanitity key. No...she would rather text someone/talk on a personal call or jack around with sorting out returns than actually help the customer. I have other things to say and I agree with the situation on whether or not you are fired or laid off. It's complete and utter BS. And yes, the kiss ups got better hours. I do not kiss anyone's butt and prefer to work than waste time doing that.

    yup happens all the time, if the manager likes you then you might get a manager job, they get rid of peoples faster than we keep them. Equal Opportunity NOT ( Nebraska}
