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

    Pros

    Great work atmosphere, flexibility, employee discount, potential for mobility within company, variety of job tasks.

    Cons

    While I love the store, the pay could be increased. Pier 1 does not pay associates enough to sustain living expenses. Shifts are typically 4 hours, and the best way to pick up hours is to be available when another associate calls out. Great place to work for a second source of income.

    Advice to Management

    Fewer Employees on payroll, increase hours for established team members.

    I have been working at Pier 1 Imports part-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    As a part time associate i have gotten 6 raises in the last 3 years, starting as a seasonal associate ($10/hour) and now to Material Handler 1 ( $16/hour). Very friendly atmoshere and because of my part time status i have flexibility with my work schedule to allow time for school. Full time associates do not have this flexibility

    Cons

    For the past 2 years, supervisors and HR reps have been in and out of the job, making the work environment disorganized. The work is very physically demanding, often seems impossible to hit production numbers of 100% that is required. Associates get fired very often. Also a lack of equipment like forkilifts make it difficult to do work efficiently. Part time associate benifits are not the best. During peak holiday season you can kiss your life goodbye, working 11 hours plus, good for your wallet but hurts family time.

    Advice to Management

    ive often felt under appreciated, make sure you take care of your hard working associates.
