I have been working at Pier 1 Imports part-time (less than a year)

Pros

There is a great sense of team working for pier 1. The store manager and sales leads are all on the same page, pleasant, helpful, and understanding. It takes a bit of time but after the learning curve it is simple to understand and execute what the company expects of you. You need people skills for this job and you need to be willing to walk up to customers even if they haven't asked for help

Cons

The hourly wage is average and doesn't really encourage me to stay. Hours can be limited in supply especially after the holiday season. This is a job that keeps you on your feet constantly. Because sales associates usually work 4 hour shifts you don't really get defined breaks, though it is acceptable to get a drink of water or use the restroom when needed. There is not a lot of room for growth due to the fact that there are really only sales associates, sales leaders, assistant manager and store manager. Wish there was commission.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Reward stores with good sales by giving employees higher wages

    Pros

    There are a wide range of products that can suit any person's needs. There are a lot of different aspects to this job, and everybody will find something they like to do.

    Cons

    Dealing with very needy / rude customers tends to get very tedious. Sometimes is a thankless job

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    To trust employees more; don't micromanage us, sometimes we are actually good at a particular job and you don't need to treat us like we are not.

    Pros

    I love working at this place so much. I work with an amazing group of people who are mature (for the most part) really funny and helpful.
    I appreciate that the managers are very respectful, they are never condescending and they don't yell at you as if youre a child.
    I once accidentally told a customer wrong info, the manager waited for to finish and politely said "I think they might've been moved to another floor" instead of cutting me off an yelling at me in front of the customer

    Cons

    Some employees who have been there for a while like to dictate and be a bit bossy.
    Also the hours suck sometimes

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Keep on doing what youre doing. Thank you for always visiting our store and being in touch. It shows you care about us.
