  1. Great place to work and surrounded by great people.

    I worked at Pier 1 Imports part-time (more than a year)

    Pros

    Management took the time to teach you every aspect of the store and how to interact with customers effectively. Product knowledge was readily available and they really pushed the idea of working as a team and not against each other.

    Cons

    Scheduling was not always flexible and management had a high turn around which would create tension within the store team.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Always try to work together. Regardless if there are disagreements among management, they should be taken care of among that team and not involve other employees. This builds a stronger management team and ensures respect among associates.

    Pros

    Very friendly staff, appreciative and polite customers, hands on training, management is very accommodating and professional, all around decent work environment.

    Cons

    The pay could be better considering each employee must do some pretty heavy lifting and manual labor, pos system a bit annoying.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    The back room is very cluttered and items are stacked too high. Our store receives far too much inventory. It might benefit the store to let corporate know we have too much product that is contributing to possibly dangerous back room.
