Pros

great company for the young and eager

Cons

2 coverage gets old quick, then loading couches etc by yourself adds to possible injury. It is trackable Pier 1 will track it, conversion, sales, ticket, credit cards, survey's, it's way too much to focus on leaving service diluted. Pick two and go strong for them.

Advice to Management

clean up the stores, we don't need 18 different lip glosses clogging the cash wrap. Also market better to your customers to drive focused ones in.

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

    Pros

    25% discount on merch, flexible hours, they do offer insurance but it will take almost your whole check to have it, You can get a $250 limit credit card after 90 days employment, even if you don't have good credit.

    Cons

    Only have part time available unless you are a shift lead or manager so you must have another source of income, impossible as your only job, the staff at the one where I worked were gossipy and two faced a lot of competition for a job that you do not make commission. And always with the credit card, " push the credit card" well I got one of their cards and as soon as I pay it off I will NEVER use it again. Do not be even a day late paying or they will call you 15 times a day til you pay something and interest is 29% plus no grace period

    Advice to Management

    Offer better incentives for getting a credit sign up ( other than a free candle or hand sanitizer) better pay, more hours, more appreciation for those who get things done and sell the most. Need higher quality merchandise especially for the price
