I worked at Pier 1 Imports

Pros

Alex Smith is doing a great job turning Pier 1 around and putting it back on the map. I think some of his leadership team needs some further development, but I want to see Pier 1 continue to succeed and get back to the amazing place it once was to work.

Cons

Favoritism, some departments don't have a clear direction and just react vs. being proactive and looking strategically at what is needed.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Make sure the people at the Home Office support those in the Stores and DCs and not the other way around.

    I worked at Pier 1 Imports

    Pros

    (Some) decent merchandise to buy.

    Cons

    Management treated as a expendable resource. They do nothing to try to keep and/or retain their employees and offer no clear expectations when under review. I was part of a "downsizing" of payroll that included my paygrade being reduced and then being put on a "plan". Needless to say I would think again and warn anyone who would want to work for this company. The president is all about making sure that the stockholders are happy, all the while cutting jobs and salaries and keeping his huge mandatory bonus he gets every year.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Find a new job where the company respects and takes care of it's employees.

    I worked at Pier 1 Imports

    Pros

    Pier 1 offered a good and immediate discount.

    Cons

    When hired I had very specific hours that I could work due to child care restrictions. My hiring manager was empathetic and assured me that she'd work with me. Yeah... that didn't happen.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    If you hire someone with the agreement for that person to work particular hours, STICK TO IT.
