    I have only been working here a couple weeks but so far it has been a lot of fun and very professional.

    ProsI love that the manger is willing to work with my schedule. Also I love that there is potential for advancement in the company.

    ConsIt gets a little hard if you have to work a late shift of tagging items or mark downs and then have to be there several hours later to do an opening shift of unloading the delivery truck the next day.

    I loved working for Pier 1.

    Store Manager (Former Employee)

    ProsGreat Discount !!! Great people !!! Ability to invest in yourself and move up in the company. Great management training. Ability to customize your store visually to represent your area. Even once leaving the company in my management role to pursue another full time opportunity I remained attached to Pier 1, for seasonal help around the holidays, and to help with visual and floor moves. Couldn't give up the discount ! :-)

    ConsPayroll hours can be challenging. It can also be a physical job.

    Advice to Senior ManagementSome of the expectations of the visual changes can be counterproductive.

    Yes, I would recommend this company to a friend – I'm optimistic about the outlook for this company

    Fun Place To Work!

    Store Manager (Former Employee)
    Nashville, TN

    ProsThe best reasons to have a job at Pier 1 are that you get to make a positive impact on your customers lives daily. You are helping them finds furniture, accessories or gifts that they will love for a lifetime. Before I ever worked for Pier 1 some of my favorite furniture was from there!

    ConsChanging Promotions monthly is very time consuming. There must be a better system put in place.
    There is a lot of heavy lifting involved, but usually with another team member. Make sure you eat your Wheaties!

    Advice to Senior ManagementI know a lot of my employees never really knew of open positions in other stores or areas without my bringing it up. Pier 1 should list positions weekly on the portal for managers to print for their associates. It might better help with internal promotion.

    ProsA great place to work if you love home decor and helping others.

    ConsOff loading trucks full of furniture is physically strenuous, but part of the job.

    Advice to Senior ManagementIt's a great place to have worked, keep doing what you're doing.

    Fantastic

    Retail Associate (Current Employee)
    Staten Island, NY

    ProsFriendly, Fun, Good discount. Overall its a great place to work and shop! I am a huge fan of it! I reccomend it to anyone looking for part time work.

    ConsOnly real negatives, it is part-time. Only 4 hours a week. And the stock room could be a little unorganized at times which makes it difficult to do your job as well as you would like.
