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

Pros

Pier 1 is a fun, dynamic and beautiful place to work. Always new products coming in that keep up with current trends.

Cons

The store carries too much merchandise that isn't bringing enough profit. I believe they could eliminate products like stationary and cheap toys, and provide more breathing room for the higher end products to be showcased and "shoppable". There is never enough room for all the products that come in on truck and stockrooms are overflowing and dangerous. Also, they could be more trend setting and less trend following.

Advice to Management

Honestly, I get the push for the credit card, but it gets to the point of predatory.

    Pros

    I love working at Pier 1 Imports because most of the customers are so geniune. You do have to have patience with those who are not. Every item is unique, and entertaining is the name of the game.

    Cons

    Some of the products could be in better condition. The stock rooms are over flowed with merchandise, and doesn't always seem safe. When wanting to move up in the food chain, you have to be willing to travel because positions are few.

    Advice to Management

    The more incentives you give your associates, the harder they will work for the Pier 1 Card numbers.
