I worked at Pier 1 Imports part-time (less than a year)

Pros

Nice managers that allow you to have fun as long as you get everything done on the sales floor and backroom.

Cons

Sometimes you may work late when decor needs to be changed, but that seems normal to retail industry in general.

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

    Pros

    I have gained so much experience in decorating by working at Pier 1 that I have received numerous offers to decorate homes, offices, etc. I intend to look into advancing my education to include a degree in interior design, because of Pier 1.

    Cons

    In an environment where a position may need to be filled ASAP, there's not much in the way of preparing someone for advancement should the occasion arise. It seems to be more outside hiring, rather than promoting from within, again, simply because there's not much preparation or a "learning to advance" environment.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Share your knowledge with your staff. Prepare them for advancement, instead of telling them why they couldn't be promoted (they weren't "ready" or "experienced enough". It's a reflection on you if you don't have any staff ready to advance when an opportunity arises.
