Typically an entry level job, the work of a cashier working at Dollar Tree is quite straightforward, if not too simple. Stationed at any Dollar Store outlet, you will be required to provide exceptional customer services, while providing customer support and performing cashiering work. Working at this position will require you to possess a high school diploma at the very least – a GED equivalent is good enough as well.
As a cashier at Dollar Tree, you will need to possess great customer service skills – since you will be working for a Fortune 500 company, it is important that you project a good image of the company and its services.

While working as a cashier in this company, you will be exposed to a lot of things – the learning is great as you will be working for an organization that caters to a diverse clientele. If you have had some exposure to working on a POS system or in direct customer services (even if it was a part time job that you held during high school), your candidature for the position will become strong.
