Pros

- Support system for personal life
- Interesting and colorful store
- Simply and challenging at the same time

Cons

- Dress code
- Enormity of tasks

Advice to Management

I think that every person at corporate should have to work a week at a store as an associate. That Undercover Boss show should do Pier 1 - Perhaps things would become more realistic.

    Advice to Management

    Senior management; HR should find a way to communicate with store-level employees, since these are the folks on the front line, greeting the customers.
