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

Pros

My co-workers are great and the merchandise is fun to sell. Most customers are easy to work with. Employee discount is decent at 25%

Cons

Company's policy re limiting work days and hours make it impossible to make any money. The hourly wage is poor...most of the associates are talented and creative w interior design and deserve well over the 8 or $9 per hr pay rate!

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Pier1 as a public company is very profitable these days and so you need to reward your front line associates w better pay and more hours if they want them! Do you really value your store associates or are we dispensible??the merchandise does NOT sell itself

Doesn't Recommend
Positive Outlook
Disapproves of CEO

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

    Pros

    Flexible work hours
    Good work/life balance
    SOME opportunities for advancement
    25% employee discount on all merchandise and gift cards
    A good job for students or individuals with busy home-lives

    Cons

    After three years of employment, I had only earned a pathetic pay raise of $0.12.
    High turnover of management staff due to immaturity and poor customer/colleague relations
    Strange work hours- sometimes until 2:00 am or beginning at 6:00 am
    Sales staff are responsible for cleaning the bathrooms and the store

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    More recognition of employee successes and opportunities for pay raises would motivate your staff

    Recommends
    Neutral Outlook
    No opinion of CEO
