ProsIt's nice to see the new products and meet nice fellow employees.

ConsOur general manager is demeaning and kept an employee working even when they were struck with a stomach flu. He has broken items and leaves the mess for other employees to clean it up and write off without telling anyone. I wish our general manager didn't "coach" us in and describe how we need to get people to sign up for the card and the things that are on sale for every shift.

Advice to Senior Management* Get rid of flex shifts
* Set schedules 2 weeks in advance & don't change them
* Give employees breaks every 2 hours, not every 6 hours; employees shouldn't have to ask for bathroom breaks and told they can't
* Update the computer system - it freezes all the time
* Hire a cleaning staff to scrub toilets, vacuum and mop
* Make sure there are men on staff that can lift the heavy furniture
* Have a regional manager check up on the general manager and do surprise visits to see how employees are really treated
* Pay your employees higher than minimum wage
* Employees should be able to call off sick even if they can't find a sub
* Have managers find subs for employees
* Paid sick and holidays shouldn't be on the website as a perk since they aren't offered to part-time employees

No, I would not recommend this company to a friend – I'm not optimistic about the outlook for this company

    Great at first, but gets worse as you gain rank

    Sales Lead (Current Employee)
    Las Vegas, NV

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


    Pros: Good discount, fun and interesting merchandise, incentives for both associates… Cons: Regional manager plays favorites, company likes to push in inexperienced, external management who take months to truly train. Wages suck, to start at minimum wage… Advice to Senior Management: Cut the flex shifts. If someone else is needed, just schedule them to work in the first place. You can always send them home early.… No, I would not recommend this company to a friend More
