I worked at Pier 1 Imports part-time (Less than a year)

Pros

Was a good part-time, minimum wage job.

Cons

Quickly realized there was little room to move up. Store manager had been there for years. Other sales associates who had been there for years were planning on moving on because they couldn't get any semblance of a promotion. Other retail places seem to have more opportunities.

Advice to Management

Give us more credit! I felt small and replaceable (I guess I was).

    I worked at Pier 1 Imports full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    My peers and submitting my resignation.

    Cons

    Working as a member of management in the Savannah, GA DC was one of the worst experiences that I have ever encountered in my career. It was one of the most unprofessional enviroments that I have worked in. This company has no concept of work-life balance, working their supervisors 70 to 80 hours a week. The upper management team acted in a disrespectful and unethical manner. Resigning from this job has been one of the best decisions I have made in quiite some time.

    Advice to Management

    Close your Savannah DC or change the DC Director(dictator)

    I have been working at Pier 1 Imports full-time (More than 8 years)

    Pros

    Employee discount, fun merchandise, working with great customers, leading talented associates, great home office

    Cons

    New regional manager every 3 months. It is difficult to build mentoring/business relationships when there is so much inconsistency. There is a lot of pettiness and little remains confidential with senior management.

    Advice to Management

    Please fill your positions in a timely manner. It creates low morale and it is a difficult working environment.
