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

Pros

Some of the customers are fun to work with.

Cons

You are expected to be a sales associate, janitor (cleaning public toilets), building furniture, taking out the trash, lifting all types of furniture, going up ladders 10' or higher holding a chair and either taking it off or bringing it down for customers, carrying stuff out to customers cars, working on the loading dock , physically demanding. Push credit cards and surveys all the time.

Advice to Management

Budget the stores so they can staff then appropriately. A real cleaning crew and a stock person would be a nice start!
