    I have been working at Pier 1 Imports part-time (more than an year)

    Pros

    You get to work with a variety of people; whether it be coworkers or customers
    you learn a lot about the merchandise as you work there, and a lot of it is very interesting
    Unlike the competitors (Crate & Barrel, Pottery Barn), Pier 1 stuff is very colorful and unique

    Cons

    It can take time to move up within the company, and you have to usually be able to transfer to other stores in order to move up
    A lot of managers try to low ball with hourly pay (though Pier 1 does pay above min wage), you have to have the courage to ask for something higher
    They really push to achieve their goals for the Credit Card we endorse.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Understand there are good weeks and bad week with results of sales and Credit Card openings

    Cons

    highly concentrated mostly female environment which can be catty and petty

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Work with your staff to earn their respect, loyalty, and trust. Don't be afraid to develop them and make them as good as you are it will pay off for everyone in the long run. Reach out to your customer base and be honest with them. They will reward you with their loyalty when you go the extra mile.
