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

Pros

The employee discount was a big plus. They offer insurance options for part-time employees. Opportunities to interact with people/customers from all walks of life.

Cons

Store managers are in charge of scheduling. My personal experience was that the store manager continually scheduled me and another manager for weekend shifts, but refused to work more than one weekend for every two months despite higher management requesting she work more weekends. They require you to push their store credit card, so if you have a problem pushing 23%APR cards on people, this may not be the place for you.

Advice to Management

I would advise regional managers to require schedule submissions from store managers along with sales reports. This would give better insight to what problems may be leading to poor store performance.

    I worked at Pier 1 Imports full-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    Good work/life balance. Great bonus program! Laid back company.

    Cons

    Once you are hired in for a particular position, you will be stuck with that position. No opportunities to move up within the company. People tend to stick around for a long time. Company pays below market value.

    Advice to Management

    Create more opportunities for people to advance. Pay people what they are worth.

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

    Pros

    I no longer have to work there!

    Cons

    40Ft trucks that arrive between 4am and 12pm noon. You have only two maybe three people to unload ALL of it. It must ALL be processed in 24 hours. Items are stacked sky high and fall as you alone ( because there are never enough staff in the store no matter the square footage, and someone always has to be on the sales floor) try to get them out for a customer.

    Advice to Management

    Offer a premium pay for associates to work overnight shifts and in the stockroom.
