    Pros

    It's an easy job. Not really stressful. Decent pay.

    The flex shifts are inconvenient. It makes your paychecks unpredictable.

    Pros

    The hours are very flexible so it is good for a student. My managers were always nice and willing to work with me.

    Cons

    They pay close to minimum wage and will not let any associate more than 20 hours. They won't fire anyone. My coworker came in really drunk and the manager got in trouble for sending her home. Push really hard to sell store credit card.

    Advice to Management

    Pay your employees better and have a higher standard for employee conduct. Give employees more hours so they can actually survive without a second job.

    Pros

    Pretty decent Work / Life balance

    Cons

    One of the worst companies I've ever worked with. I was laid off just 8 months after joining the company. And that's not the worst part. I was on a worker's visa and they revoked my visa on the SAME DAY indirectly suggesting me to leave the country. Most IT organizations who recruit candidates with worker visas like HP, IBM, Continental etc have a 30 - day / 60--day visa revocation policy. But hey, Pier 1 apparently wants to abide by the "rules". What a load of crap!!..

    Luckily, I was able to talk to my lawyer and get this sorted out pretty quickly. But candidates on a worker's visa, stay away from this company.

    Advice to Management

    Learn to follow a better recruitment policy especially with respect to Visa holders otherwise don't recruit at all. Either that or hire better lawyers.
