I have been working at Pier 1 Imports

Pros

great company for the young and eager

Cons

2 coverage gets old quick, then loading couches etc by yourself adds to possible injury. It is trackable Pier 1 will track it, conversion, sales, ticket, credit cards, survey's, it's way too much to focus on leaving service diluted. Pick two and go strong for them.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

clean up the stores, we don't need 18 different lip glosses clogging the cash wrap. Also market better to your customers to drive focused ones in.

    I worked at Pier 1 Imports part-time (more than an year)

    Pros

    25% discount on merch, flexible hours, they do offer insurance but it will take almost your whole check to have it, You can get a $250 limit credit card after 90 days employment, even if you don't have good credit.

    Cons

    Only have part time available unless you are a shift lead or manager so you must have another source of income, impossible as your only job, the staff at the one where I worked were gossipy and two faced a lot of competition for a job that you do not make commission. And always with the credit card, " push the credit card" well I got one of their cards and as soon as I pay it off I will NEVER use it again. Do not be even a day late paying or they will call you 15 times a day til you pay something and interest is 29% plus no grace period

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Offer better incentives for getting a credit sign up ( other than a free candle or hand sanitizer) better pay, more hours, more appreciation for those who get things done and sell the most. Need higher quality merchandise especially for the price

    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.
