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

Pros

The atmosphere is filled with a beautiful merchandise mix from around the world...it is very easy to work with and sell to the customers....the visual merchandising is uniform through out the company....most items are fairly priced....great clearance sales

Cons

Low pay for sales team...the corporate visual guides are not realistic for merchandising the huge amounts of stock we have,it is difficult to achieve all of the corporate goals with pushing the credit card and meeting the days figures as well as keeping a clean store and processing huge amounts of stock. Too many heavy and cumbersome items to lift and carry with little to no help.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

All stores should have an able bodied stock person to lift and get heavy items from tops of fixtures and someone to carry large and bulky items to customers cars.the person should work all the peak hours of operation...there could be a better way of boxing or wrapping gifts. Customers complain about that and lack of a shopping bag.

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

    Pros

    I love working at Pier 1 Imports because most of the customers are so geniune. You do have to have patience with those who are not. Every item is unique, and entertaining is the name of the game.

    Cons

    Some of the products could be in better condition. The stock rooms are over flowed with merchandise, and doesn't always seem safe. When wanting to move up in the food chain, you have to be willing to travel because positions are few.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    The more incentives you give your associates, the harder they will work for the Pier 1 Card numbers.

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

    Pros

    The products are great, the associates that you work with are great, there are lots of fun things that you get to do (setting displays, matching products up with a customer's requests)

    Cons

    There are so many requirements for one shift and many projects are given with little time to complete them

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Harvest the talent that you do have, and recognize the work that someone has put into your company. Pay raises of $.10 are not enough to keep me on staff as a manager with you.
