What you may not know about Dollar Tree employee hours?

An insider told me that new in-store employees only get 15 to 25 hours working at the Dollar Tree - only the managers work full-time. Has anyone else heard this?

Since working there in dec my hrs have changed multiple times a week even sometimes being asked to stay late in the same day like at the beginning of this week I was scheduled two days then today I was told I would work wed, thurs, and fri, now I looked at the schedule not even 24 hrs from my last schedule change and it says I’m now working wed, thurs, and sat. No one notified me of the change either. This has been happening to everyone I talked to and to me since I been hired.

WAS PROMISED 15-20 HRS. BUT NOW ONLY KEEP GETTING 5.5 AT BEST..... THEY DO NOT GIVE RAISES UNLESS YOU ARE MANAGEMENT . ONLY TIME RAISES ARE GIVEN IS IF MINIMUM WAGE GOES UP! WHAT A JOKE! IF YOU HAVE EVER HEARD OF THE TERM WHEN RENTING A HOME/ RESIDENCE "SLUM LORD(S)" EXCEPT "SLUM EMPLOYER(S)" IS WHAT I THINK IS WHAT IT ACTUALLY IS AT THIS PLACE. AND THAT IS A UNDERSTATEMENT ...... AMUGST OTHER ISSUES THAT SHOULD & NEED TO BE ADDRESSED AT THE PARTICULAR ONE I WORK AT CURRENTLY.... I MEAN GOING AGAINST THEIR POLICY ON A HAND FULL OF TOPICS & SUBJECTS. I COULD GO ON, BUT WHATS THE USE.... NOT MY PROBLEM. 5.5 HRS ISNT WORTH IT TO MAKE WAVES & BRING ATTENTION TO THAT OF CERTAIN MANAGEMENT MEMBERS. JUST SAYING FOR THOSE WHO MAY CONCIDER TAKING AN INTEREST IN EMPLOYMENT AT THE DOLLAR TREE. YOUR WELCOME.....

I have a friend in fla that gets called in to unload trucks at night but is not allowed to clock in until the truck arrives . She has to just sit in her car waiting without being paid. This cannot be right. Does this happen at other Dollar Tree stores . How can a person be required to report for work but not be allowed to clock in while waiting?

I worked for dollar tree for most of 2019 and thats absolutely true. THe only employees that ever get sxheduled for an actual full time 40 hours or more week are Store managers Nd if its a larger store and a busy store also the assistant managers. However any hourly non manager role employees only get offered and get hired for only part time positions. And the max amount of hours you will actually be physically scheduled for is 15 to 17 and on rare occasion 20. However if you want you will most definitely get the chance to work extra hours in the dept your assigned to as well as other areas like running register amd floating to other locations to help do resets and other simar hours to work. They do this to mainly keep cost down and so they don't have to pride benefits. At least that's what my area manager told me when I wS training for store manager after working almost 40 hours a wk as a stocker part time and as a dasher part time and assistant manager part time.

Just started working at Dollar Tree and this is correct. I will only be working 4 hours a day, 3 to 5 days a week
