I have been working at Pier 1 Imports

Pros

I enjoyed the atmosphere and merchandise.

Cons

It wasn't a career. I only worked part-time hours. I am seeking a career, not just a job. The pay was also not great and there was no benefits.

    Pros

    Employee discount, good training and continuing education, higher than minimum wage, job is as helpful and educational as you want it to be

    Cons

    Raises are hard to get and very small when given (even for promotions usually), Very limited number of full time positions, does not pay a living wage in most areas, very dangerous work conditions during freight shifts and when managing customer orders (dependent on specific store), minimal commission opportunities

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Create more performance related bonuses for management, either pay associates more or expect less of them, standardize truck processing procedures (some stores are assisted and some are not), and don't be so slow to fire people that are holding the company back. Don't promote people just because they have been there a long time, choose the best people for management rather than just the most tenured

    Neutral Outlook
    No opinion of CEO
