Dollar Tree Job Application

Updated on June 4, 2011

Dollar Tree is a great employment opportunity for anyone in search of a job. Workers at the store start out with competitive pay and numerous employee incentives. It is also notable that as an employee of Dollar Tree you may need to be able to stand on your feet for multiple hours. Additionally you will need to be able to lift semi-heavy boxes and have moderate people skills. Apart from those requirements, the store requires relatively easy employment qualifications. With that being said, credentials such as a college education or relevant past experience will help. If you live near a Dollar Tree I recommend putting in an application today. Getting started is easy!

As I mentioned you will have a big advantage in getting a job with Dollar Tree if you have relevant past experience(although not required). The store likes their employees to have worked in a store similar to their own. When filling out the references section of the application, be sure to include any cashier, retail store, or stocking experience you might have. is the store's official website and the source for the company;s online job application. Once you are on the site you will notice a "careers" link in the company information section at the bottom of the company's main page. The careers page will give you an overview of what working at Dollar Tree entails and what you can expect.

The store also invites applicants to pick up a paper application at one of their many locations. You can find a store location by referring to Google Maps or by using the store's online locator.

So whats on the application? You are probably wondering what is on the Dollar Tree application. Well it is relatively standard. You will need to include all of your basic information, i.e. name, address, phone number, etc. Additional queries on the application include your job history and references. Always avoid adding references who are related to you. The best references you can add or past co-workers or bosses you are still on good terms with. Some people mistakenly overlook the importance of good references.

Be absolutely positive that all the information on your application is correct. Poorly spelled or incorrect information can be a deal breaker during the application process. It is recommended that you go over the application at least twice and then ask a family member or friend to go over it.

Also be sure that you do not fold or crumple your application. An application in such a state can be immediate ground for an employer to deny you employment.

Be prepared to answer a variety of standard interview questions before you turn in your job application. Although its not always common, you may be given an interview immediately after turning in your application. This is why it is important to be prepared. One of the most common interview questions is "What are some of your strengths and weaknesses." The best way to answer this question is by stating that being a "perfectionist" is both your number one strength and weakness. An employee who is a perfectionist is beneficial to an employer.
