    Pros

    Flexible schedule. Associates and managers were typically fun to work with

    Late nights (seasonal transitions would last until 3-4am). Lots of heavy lifting and moving of furniture.

    Advice to Management

    Associates deserve higher hourly pay

    Fun items to sell and great company culture.

    Cons

    low pay and managers have to work holidays (which is expected and obvious, but still wasn't fun)

    Advice to Management

    Keep it up

    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 Management

    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.

  6. A fine little retail job, but nothing to call home about.

    Pros

    The workload is not bad, the management is very kind and understanding, they really care about their employees and it's like being a part of a little family.

    Cons

    They force you to push a credit card on people. The credit card is the only reason that the job is not a five star job. If you don't get people to sign up for a credit card, you won't last long. Pier 1 needs to reconsider its customer loyalty program. Won't get many hours here, ESPECIALLY if you don't get many cards.

    Advice to Management

    You guys are great, keep helping the employees and customers with a smile!

  7. I love working at Pier 1, the personal relationship with customers is amazing! I just love what I do.

    Pros

    The turnover rate to move up, the training, as well as the crazy hours.

    Cons

    The pay and the crazy hours.

    Advice to Management

    Let the little guys know what is going on. Nobody likes being in Limbo!

    Pros

    It was a great place to work for part time ,management works with your schedule and they are team players.

    Cons

    It would be frustrating sometimes when I would take a bus across town 2 hours and be sent home after only working one or two hours .

    Advice to Management

    Better cross training ,I would have liked to be trained on the registers as I have extensive experience on them

  10. Overall a positive experience

    Pros

    Management and associates share responsibilities. I felt like it was easy to bring issues to upper management, and that they would be taken seriously. The employee discount was also generous, considering you are able to use it on sales/clearance.

    Cons

    Flex hours made it difficult to plan anything outside of work. There was also lot of pressure to have customers open a store credit card, even though the terms were not ideal.

    Pros

    Working for pier one was pretty great! A Sales associate worked 4 hours shifts so it was conducive to my busy school schedule

    Cons

    Being a seasonal worker, however, meant you worked everything, Also, the culture of persuading every single customer to open a store card felt dishonest and exhausting.

    Advice to Management

    I think management did a really great job of keeping the associate motivated and excited.
