I worked at Pier 1 Imports full-time

Pros

Beautiful building to work in (Headquarters). Free parking. Great cafeteria.

Cons

Computer software broken more often than not. Crazy hours. Lack of permanent seating. Pay is so-so. Not competitive pay. When you hire on they make it seem like you are going to contribute to the company and be an important part of it. I didn't see that. Roller-coaster shifts. Different start time each day and no two days in a row off. No way to plan. Job description not accurate.

Advice to Management

Be more professional. Know your employees and take a genuine interest in them. Quit paying lip service to questions and problems that arise. Please be aware that your employees are your company. Be pro-active instead of running around looking for the next meeting. Way too many meetings at this company.

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

    Pros

    discount, short shifts, co-workers can be fun, nice environment, not the worst customer base

    Cons

    expected to do a lot for minimum wage, heavy lifting with little to no help, managers who let position go to their head, no room to grow, little communication, no incentives whatsoever-expected to reach card and survey goals with no extra pay or reward

    Advice to Management

    give some sort of prize to the employees for reaching goals besides a high five, even candy would be a step up. Have more than one sales associate work at a time in case there are call offs, sudden illness, or just needed extra help and lifting.


  2. "Great atmosphere"

    I have been working at Pier 1 Imports part-time

    Pros

    Praise from management when doing well, new customer interaction, great music, nice and friendly co-workers

    Cons

    NO HOURS!!!! Management gives part-time employees 4 hour shifts( anything over 4 hour shifts requires a break). Also, we are put in the system for flex shifts which takes up your day- you're not even guaranteed to work it. Lastly, we don't get paid enough. Sales associates are required to clean bathrooms, go on ladders, and unload the truck.

    Advice to Management

    More hours or stop hiring new employees every 2 seconds!!!
