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

Pros

Flexible schedule for college students

Cons

Poor wages starting at sales associate and even worse for sales leader considering the excessive demands of the management

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Pay all employees better if you're going to demand sales leadership from the bottom up.

    I worked at Pier 1 Imports full-time

    Pros

    Stores are nice size to work in, unlike the big box retailers.
    Customers are happy in here and pleasant to interact with.
    Store smells great.

    Cons

    Only schedules short 4 hour shifts unless you are in management.
    Store layout is ever-changing and chaotic. Hard to fit merchandise into planned space.
    Time for setting displays is not enough and only done off hours - late Sunday nights.
    Salespeople must push credit card and sales like commissioned employees without the extra pay.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Set realistic expectations of your plans and provide enough payroll and time to carry it out.
    Take better care of your employees to lessen turnover.
