Anywhere between two and six hours per shift. Pay is ok for a second job or if you are married.

Cons

Do not really get weekends off. Sometimes go in in the evening and work until midnight. Have to work some holidays.

    Know what you're getting into, but it's a better place than most for retail.

    Pros

    -Plenty of opportunities to work with people.
    -No commission, so everybody's all on the same team.
    -Good place to practice your decorative impulses on someone else's dime.
    -Very flexible with requests off, so long as you put them far enough out.

    Cons

    -All of the typical gripes that anyone would have about retail: lack of pay/hours, crazy customers
    -Unless you're willing to relocate, limited advancement opportunities beyond first-step management.
    -Company credit card practices border on predatory.

    Advice to Management

    -Be more realistic w/r/t time required to complete tasks.
    -Ease up on credit card expectations.
    -Be more welcoming to input from those most affected by in-store policy and more open about methodology when that input is considered.

    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 Management

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