    Low compensation, unsafe conditions, no benefits.

    It will great to earn more than the minimum wage for a job that is very physically demanding, were one can get hurt easily lifting heavy furniture and boxes.

    I have been working at Pier 1 Imports part-time (More than 5 years)

    Pros

    Employee discount is 25%.
    Incentives most months for management team (not for the Store Manager) and sometimes for associates.
    Mostly flexible with any schedule.
    Fun staff and merchandise.
    Easy to catch on.

    Cons

    Low pay, even for retail standards. Thinking of a raise? Try 0.15 for a tenured manager.
    There are a lot of complaints about the physicality of this job, and although it is true, this is what you signed up to do. Freight and transitions every week or every few months is pretty tough on your body.
    Overbearing attitude about pushing the Pier 1 Credit Card to every customer.
    Strict fraternization policy amongst a group of 15 people.

    Advice to Management

    Expect the same work of all managers -- not just a Sales Leader, who is the work horse of this store. Can you really expect an associate making minimum wage and working only 10 hours a week to be knowledgeable and successful on the floor, or that they will even stay for more than a few months? Pay your staff more and give them ample time on the sales floor each week so that they can actually be a contributing portion of the stores successes.
