    Pros

    Management seems to care about employees. Good and sometimes fun working atmosphere with supervisors who are supportive. Good benefits such as paid time off, medical + dental and fair pay for the work. Company is philanthropically oriented. While you're encouraged to sell, it's not the be-all end all of customer relations as much as customer and employee support is. By that I mean that while there was some pressure to sell, there weren't quotas or people breathing down your neck.

    Cons

    Some customers could get rude or nasty at times, but that's kind of expected with any customer service job. I'm not sure that's Pier 1's fault as much as the fault of the entitlement society we live in. I started out seasonal, and it was never clear when they were going to let seasonal employees go. There was misinformation or no information given at times as far as how long the seasonal employment was going to continue. Some days it seems they just let a bunch of people go out of the blue.

    Advice to Management

    Communicate better with your seasonal employees as far as how long the employment will last and don't keep people in the dark.

    Pros

    The people I work with are a lot of fun, the merchandise is good quality and the discount is good (25%!) and they encourage teamwork.

    Cons

    Schedules can stink sometimes -- I've worked as little as 4 hours some weeks. There's also limited incentives for us opening credit cards.

    Advice to Management

    Give your employees more hours and more rewards for getting credit cards since you emphasize getting them so much.
