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

Pros

Great Discount !!! Great people !!! Ability to invest in yourself and move up in the company. Great management training. Ability to customize your store visually to represent your area. Even once leaving the company in my management role to pursue another full time opportunity I remained attached to Pier 1, for seasonal help around the holidays, and to help with visual and floor moves. Couldn't give up the discount ! :-)

Cons

Payroll hours can be challenging. It can also be a physical job.

Advice to Management

Some of the expectations of the visual changes can be counterproductive.

    I worked at Pier 1 Imports full-time

    Pros

    Nice pay, cool products, interesting customers, pretty good growth potential.

    Cons

    As with any type of retail job you will be hounded about goals every minute of everyday. While this is to be expected, I think the responsibility of tracking sales goals every hour is a bit excessive and it ends up negatively impacting sales potential on slow day. If your complaining about not meeting a goal every hour it can end up decreasing worker moral.

    Advice to Management

    Stop talking about store goals while customers are in the store, it makes them feel like a number.
