Have a knack for retail but worried you can’t keep track of hundreds of differently-priced items? The Dollar Tree has just the job for you.
The discounter is hiring a store manager and assistant store managers for its would-be Moraga location. The job postings are searchable through the Dollar Tree’s website here.
I think my favorite touch is their pitchline to potential employees: “Discover for yourself how far this DOLLAR can take you” (emphasis is their’s).
Dollar Tree’s application for the Rheem shopping center was one of last year’s bigger controversies, with several residents opposing the store for a range of reasons, including claims the store’s products pose a safety risk and worries its presence could lower property values.
The Planning Commission reluctantly approved Dollar Tree’s application in September, and the opponents immediately appealed to the council. They denied the appeal, approving the application, on Nov. 10. Applications are good for one year, so Dollar Tree has until this Nov. 10 to open. After that, the store will have to reapply.
