Pros

Store discount, good friendships with other sales associates

Cons

Catty management, being looked down upon because of your position, berating customers to open a credit card, long hours of being on your feet while not being able to sit down, no creativity, expensive products that are of low quality, stuck up or just plain rude customers.

    Pros

    The customers were great, always happy and glad to be there spending their money, easy sales. Employee discount was awesome, 25%!

    Cons

    Funky hours, never got two days off in a row. The Flex schedules were the worst. Management would schedule your shift for the day then you would have a flex shift before or after your normal shift where they could call you in early or keep you later depending on the needs of the business. Absolutely no regard for the employees personal schedule. Unrealistic sales goals and when they were met there was absolutely no compensation for them. My title was a Sales Associate. Most employees who have the word Sales in their title get paid commission. Not at the One, no commission, no bonus, nothing. Pay was minimal at best. I was there for over a year and got a 9 cent raise. Everyone else's raises were about the same or less. The Assistant Store Manager who had been there for 8 yrs got a 13 cent raise! Total disregard for employee's safety. Climbing 12ft (and sometimes higher) ladders to get products off the higher shelves in the stock room, lifting and moving heavy pieces of furniture without the proper safety equipment. I could go on and on. I'm surprised no one has broken their neck!

    Advice to Management

    Bonus your Sales Associates and Sales Leaders or meeting store and company goals. Pier One Bucks at Christmas time just doesn't cut it. Give Assistant Store Managers and Sales Leaders two days off in a row to regroup so they will be more productive when they come back to work. Get rid of the Flex schedule!!!! Totally unnecessary, ask for volunteers or just schedule a shift.
