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

Flexible schedule for college students

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.

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

    Pros

    I loved the numerous opportunities to work with people face-to-face. Helping customers design rooms, purchase creative gifts, and help create a vision for them was always very fun! My team was wonderful and it made going to work very easy.

    Cons

    While store-level rewards and contests are motivating, corporate rewards and recognition for associate performance is minimal.

    Advice to Management

    Focus less on rewarding associates for number of credit cards opened per shift, and more on store-level sale goal successes.

    Pros

    Pier 1 is a retailer that doesn't take things too seriously. They recognize that what they import are things that people like to have, not need to have.

    Cons

    Really crappy pay, not so great benefits. Customers expect freebies.

    Advice to Management

    Recognize that your pay schemes don't align with other retailers.
