PAY YOUR EMPLOYEES BETTER: hourly pay is very low, no commissions and no incentives to try harder!

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

Pros

fun to meet new people and help them decorate.

Cons

need better hourly wage, bonuses, incentives to employees and have equal pay from store to store.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Company need to pay their employees more than min. wage. You expect us to sell furniture and home décor, open up credit cards and more and there is no incentive when you make $8.00 an hr. You want to boost your market, start with you employers!!

    Pros

    Great coworkers, employee discount, and great products to sell.

    Cons

    Credit cards! The less credit cards you open the less hours you get. You're expected to open one every 4 hours you work.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Relax about the credit card percentage, I get that it's important but all you do is stress sales associates out.

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

    Pros

    Nice co-workers, good employee discount, pleasant work environment. Great place if you don't need the money.

    Cons

    Very low pay, 25 cent yearly raise, too few hours, push, push, push that credit card like your life depends on it. Unrealistic sales goals. Phony "Pier 1 family" sales talks.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Listen to sales people once in a while. Too much emphasis on opening credit card in this economy. More hours would help you retain people. Stop regional managers from brow beating store managers.
