Can be fun to work there, but don't make a career out of it!

I worked at Pier 1 Imports part-time (more than 8 years)

Pros

Interesting merchandise, can be fun at times, not too many grumpy customers

Cons

constantly harassed about selling Pier 1 card, although they took away most of the benefits that helped sell it in the first place. Raises are joke, and you hardly get any hours. We had a horrible store manager & it took HR almost a year to start investigating.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Hire some full time associates instead all students. Full time people will know what they are doing, and they usually give better customer service.

    I worked at Pier 1 Imports part-time (more than 5 years)

    Pros

    Good for anyone that only want to work a few hours each week for employee discount.

    Cons

    No benefits for employees except a few vacation hours if average over 20 hours a week. Most associates are limited status, under 12 hours a week. Hourly wage very low, yearly raises are a few cents. Health insurance offered to associates is not a real health insurance policy, premiums can take an entire pay check. Managers are not paid much more than associates.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Company needs to improve salary and wages to attract and to maintain qualified employees.

    Would be a great place to work if salary and benefits were better.

    I worked at Pier 1 Imports full-time (more than 3 years)

    Pros

    Many opportunities to advance or relocate ( I worked in 4 different stores during my time there). At each store I worked, the staff was a fun, outgoing blend of young and old, male and female. Great discounts on merchandise.

    Cons

    Low pay, especially for management positions. Minimal benefits offered. Store management was constantly pushed to cut hours and payroll yet expected to provide better customer service. Corporate and regional management out of touch with local stores.
