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

Pros

I love the people I work with, its like a well knit family. We work hard but we have so much fun working the floor together! Awesome opportunities to move up.

Cons

Having a life outside of work can be rather difficult with different shift day to day and week to week.

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

    Pros

    Great coworkers (I called it the Pier 1 family), flexible hours, easy-to-understand merchandise and big moves of merchandise were rare. Good benefits during holidays.

    Cons

    Customers can be flat-out rude. Schedule can be unclear, which made planning around work difficult. And that credit card... it's almost like they want you to harass customers to get it. Rarely do people get a raise, even those who've worked there for years.

    Advice to Management

    Lay off the credit card, loosen up employee expectations.

    Pros

    Store has a good vibe to work at and
    generally the customers who come really love the Merchandise.

    Cons

    We are forced to be pushy with Selling the Credit card Applacations. It is the measurement of a good associate vs an ok associate and your hours will depend on your card apps not your performance.

    Advice to Management

    Ask your customers if they enjoy being hound for a sale
