Former Employee - Sales Lead in Abilene, TX

I worked at Pier 1 Imports full-time for more than a year

Pros

good company discount the merchandise is pretty and the customers were very friendly and upscale the store always smells nice and plays good music

Cons

unpacking freight . too few hours having to make unreasonable sales/credit card application quotas
at the time i worked there, there was a lot of staff turnover low pay for responsibility

Advice to ManagementAdvice

invest more in your core sales team , reduce the amount of daily paperwork and just create a positive and encouraging environment for the team to suceed in. goals are great but trust and rewards for great employees would create more employee satisfaction.

    I have been working at Pier 1 Imports part-time for more than a year

    Pros

    This is the most fun I have ever had at a job. I love the atmosphere, the people, and the products. Medical benefits are available.

    Cons

    The pay is low even for retail and if you can't at least offer products, credit cards, etcetera you will not make it. If you have no problem talking to people and making suggestions it will be a breeze.

    I have been working at Pier 1 Imports part-time for less than a year

    Pros

    Employee Discount...whoopie, low pay, no hours and flex shifts

    Cons

    Put your life on hold for a Flexshifts? No benefits whatsoever. No hours over 20 hours so they don't have to pay benefits. Expected to work between 6 AM TO 4 AM with no additional pay. Heavy lifting and a filthy, dirty, unhealthy environment. 2 full time employees and 20 part time. Turn over is 4-6 people every month at the store I work at.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Treat your sales associates and sales leaders as team members and not as janitors and dock workers. I think the stores mangers have about the same ratings as the CEO...you all suck.
