Great coworkers and associate discounts.

Cons

They don't allow you to work full time, never got a raise in a year and pregnancy benefits were horrible!

    I worked at Pier 1 Imports part-time (More than 5 years)

    Pros

    Really enjoyed my time with Pier 1 Imports. The product was great and fun to sell. The atmosphere was very upbeat company wide and responsibilities fit the job title.

    Cons

    Little opportunity for advancement. New employees never really had adequate time to receive training. Communication with higher level management was sometimes an issue.

    Advice to Management

    More recognition and positive feedback would be great to increase employees enthusiasm.

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

    Pros

    nice people to work with, generous discount, wearing jeans was nice

    Cons

    typical retail woes, awful inconsistent pay, greedy shareholders, extremely high expectations for not much more than minimum wage. The store that I worked at didn't even have a/c and we had to wear long pants even when it was 90 degrees inside our store. When our manager reported it to property management, they claimed it was too expensive to fix (hence the greed comment) They offer substandard health insurance, but make certain that no one gets enough hours to qualify for it. All in all, a lousy company that makes millions selling cardboard furniture and fancy pillows from sweatshops.

    Advice to Management

    consider offering a real sales bonus or higher hourly pay. Or if you expect your employees to perform as if they are in a commission environment, pay them 60 grand a year like all the other furniture stores.
