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

    Pros

    Pier 1 Imports recognizes that their sales associates are their best assets. While I worked for the company, I learned they had an excellent transfer policy - I was able to transfer to a store in a different state with no issue. Just like any retail environment, some managers manage better than others, but for the most part all those in management were encouraging and friendly with all of the sales associates. Starting pay at the time was slightly above minimum wage, and the review process guaranteed regular pay increases for those who performed at their best.

    Cons

    I would say the downsides were mostly few and far between. Most managers tend to have worked their way up in the company, so they know what it is like to have been a sales associate. The only communication issues tended to happen with managers, assistant managers, or sales leaders who were hired from the outside. Those folks were definitely the exception and not the rule, however, and tended to leave the company after a while.

    Advice to Management

    Don't change a thing. The Christmas bucks, the encouragement of associates to work for the company long term, and the regular video updates and staff meetings really make Pier 1 a fun place to work. I've definitely worked for retail companies that did way less for their associates, and it showed in terms of customer service.
