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

Pros

Pier 1 is a retailer that doesn't take things too seriously. They recognize that what they import are things that people like to have, not need to have.

Cons

Really crappy pay, not so great benefits. Customers expect freebies.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Recognize that your pay schemes don't align with other retailers.

    Pros

    Great co-workers, good employee discount, fun environment, typically friendly customers, they really emphasize making connections with customers, training is very in depth and helpful in learning selling techniques, you learn almost every aspect of running a retail store including processing freight deliveries and transitioning the store, they work around your schedule, and they seem to really appreciate associates and the work we do

    Cons

    Credit expectations are kind of crazy, surprisingly physical job, sometimes super slow with little to nothing to do

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Lower your expectations with credit, or change your incentives.

    I worked at Pier 1 Imports part-time (more than 3 years)

    Pros

    I loved the numerous opportunities to work with people face-to-face. Helping customers design rooms, purchase creative gifts, and help create a vision for them was always very fun! My team was wonderful and it made going to work very easy.

    Cons

    While store-level rewards and contests are motivating, corporate rewards and recognition for associate performance is minimal.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Focus less on rewarding associates for number of credit cards opened per shift, and more on store-level sale goal successes.
