Now that we have gone over how to get hired at Dollar Tree, it’s time to focus on another important factor: When and if your record will come up in the hiring process.
Does Dollar Tree do background checks? From what we can tell, it looks like they do, but not for every position. For instance, if you are applying for an entry-level cashier job, they might not. If you are applying to be a store manager, though, they probably will.
Regardless, there are some things you should know about background checks.
For one thing, there are some states that won’t even check your entire record. Instead, they will only look back to the past seven years. Here are those states:
- New Hampshire*
- New York*
There are also states that don’t include not guilty verdicts. Those states include:
- Indiana (limited check)
- New York
Last, there are also states that will see your entire record, including crimes you were found not guilty of. These are:
- Indiana (extensive check)
- New Jersey
- North Carolina
- North Dakota
- Rhode Island
- South Carolina
- West Virginia
We took a look at glassdoor.com to find out the average company rating at Dollar Tree. We found that they have received a 2.9 rating on their 5 star scale.
Their lowest average rating was 2.6 for benefits, while their highest was 2.8 for opportunities.
This rating is a little low, but if you are looking for your first job out of prison or have been between jobs for too long, you may have to take whatever opportunities you can get. The good news is that the job doesn’t have to be permanent. Once you get settled in you can start looking for opportunities that are more interesting to you.
What felonies Dollar Tree will not hire
Dollar Tree didn’t give us a list of felonies that make you ineligible for employment with them. Our research showed there were a few that would make it harder, but again everything seemed to be on a case-by-case basis. Read on for more.
What felony convictions might have a hard time getting hired here?
Since Dollar Tree has mostly customer service-related jobs, they probably won’t hire people with violent or sexual crimes on their record. That is usually what we see for customer service jobs.
Since all of their positions involve handling money, they also probably won’t hire someone with a record of theft.
Does Dollar Tree hire sex offenders?
We just don’t know. Not only did the company not tell us directly, but there is also no strong evidence one way or the other online.
Does Dollar Tree Drug test?
It looks like drug tests are not a standard part of their routine. However, it’s always better to be safe than sorry, as many businesses reserve the right to drug test if they feel the need to.
