    Pros

    -Good first job to learn retail, but get out AS SOON as you find something better-- even a little better
    -25% additional employee discount, even on promotional sale items (up to 45% off, though I've heard that's not much in other jobs)

    Cons

    -No matter HOW HARD you work, you will NOT get a raise until at LEAST a year of employment. And that's not even guaranteed. Some people get about .05 or up to .17 on their year raises. And management acts so gracious about it.
    -Daily demands, including making at least 5 people sign up for spam email or more junk mail, and weekly, playing with people's credit for a very faulty system (Pier 1 Rewards Credit Card)
    -Physically demanding, mentally draining. Climb up ladders and grab chairs, greeting every single customer and bothering them about signing up for the catalog, or the card, or the promotions, or this-or-that. The rule is "until they say stop three times"...

    Advice to Management

    Pay your employees accordingly for doing a good job.
    Stop with the catalog and pier 1 card. The card is more hassle than it saves people's money.

    Pros

    I no longer have to work there!

    Cons

    40Ft trucks that arrive between 4am and 12pm noon. You have only two maybe three people to unload ALL of it. It must ALL be processed in 24 hours. Items are stacked sky high and fall as you alone ( because there are never enough staff in the store no matter the square footage, and someone always has to be on the sales floor) try to get them out for a customer.

    Advice to Management

    Offer a premium pay for associates to work overnight shifts and in the stockroom.
