No opinion of CEO

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

Pros

Great co-workers, good employee discount, fun environment, typically friendly customers, they really emphasize making connections with customers, training is very in depth and helpful in learning selling techniques, you learn almost every aspect of running a retail store including processing freight deliveries and transitioning the store, they work around your schedule, and they seem to really appreciate associates and the work we do

Cons

Credit expectations are kind of crazy, surprisingly physical job, sometimes super slow with little to nothing to do

Advice to Management

Lower your expectations with credit, or change your incentives.

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

    Pros

    Flexible schedule for college students

    Cons

    Poor wages starting at sales associate and even worse for sales leader considering the excessive demands of the management

    Advice to Management

    Pay all employees better if you're going to demand sales leadership from the bottom up.
