I worked at Pier 1 Imports part-time (less than a year)

Pros

the company really,really promoted a good customer appreciation ethic,and encouraged the strong empathetic connection between sales associates and customers. If you are really creative or simply like decorating it is a really fun job because you can help others find what they need.

Cons

had a horrible situation with a really immature co-worker,also you are on-call all the time, there is no real solid schedule for anyone who isn't a manager.

    I have been working at Pier 1 Imports part-time (more than 3 years)

    Pros

    As a part time associate i have gotten 6 raises in the last 3 years, starting as a seasonal associate ($10/hour) and now to Material Handler 1 ( $16/hour). Very friendly atmoshere and because of my part time status i have flexibility with my work schedule to allow time for school. Full time associates do not have this flexibility

    Cons

    For the past 2 years, supervisors and HR reps have been in and out of the job, making the work environment disorganized. The work is very physically demanding, often seems impossible to hit production numbers of 100% that is required. Associates get fired very often. Also a lack of equipment like forkilifts make it difficult to do work efficiently. Part time associate benifits are not the best. During peak holiday season you can kiss your life goodbye, working 11 hours plus, good for your wallet but hurts family time.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    ive often felt under appreciated, make sure you take care of your hard working associates.
