Does Dollar Tree Drug-Test Employees?

Dollar Tree, in its Code of Ethics, states its commitment to provide a safe working environment for its associates and to comply with the regulations of the Occupational Safety and Health Administration (OSHA).

Pre-employment Drug Testing 

This requirement may not apply to all job applicants. For example, the company’s distribution centers are known to require drug testing before hiring anyone for safety-sensitive positions. These distribution centers play an essential role in transporting merchandise across Dollar Tree/Family Dollar stores in the country.


Drug Testing during Employment 

In line with the abovementioned points, those working in the warehouse and the logistics side of the company can be subjected to drug testing at random or as scheduled. Other employees may as well undergo a drug test if there’s reasonable suspicion, workplace accident or injury,  or other circumstances.

The Answer

Drug-testing potential and current employees at Dollar Tree is a possibility and a prerogative of the company too. Doing your research and preparation before completing an application form will save you a lot of time and trouble should a drug test arise.
