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

Pros

- Company has made great technological strides in the past few years with new registers, scheduling systems, remodels and other updates.
- Good Inventory system.
- Lots of stores around the country, so plenty of opportunity to transfer.
- Good Paid Time Off for retail, one of the best I've seen in the industry.

Cons

- A LOT of tenure in Store Manager and up. Very hard to move forward with such a backlog of potential candidates.
- Too much focus on Sales themselves, not enough on actual profitability. Hard to fault them for this as its typical of a lot of retailers.
- Workload can be intense. Company is good with trying to get SMs to work 45 hours or under, but sometimes they are not realistic with workload at all.

Advice to Management

- Continue making technological improvements, become leaders with upgrades, not followers.
- Look at the workload. Sometimes its too much for the payroll provided. Stores are different, not the same, you may need to allocate payroll differently.

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

    Pros

    Nice co-workers, happy customers, flexible schedule, decent part-time pay. Online scheduling system makes it easy to request off and check time sheets. Company gives random sales incentive bonuses, holiday gifts and a five year bonus! Nice perks for a part-time job!

    Cons

    Stock room is always a mess and is hard to get any merchandise out.

    Advice to Management

    Please keep the gossiping between the management, do not involve the co-workers.
