    I have been working at Pier 1 Imports full-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    Good discount
    Fun people to work with

    Cons

    Low pay (not even close to competition) especially for the amount of work.
    They pay incoming people more than those who have been with the company longer and have more experience. Very little room for growth and raises are pennies and rarely occur.

    Advice to Management

    A little compensation for longevity with the company. Sucks to have new people come in making the same amount (and In some cases more) than someone with years of experience with the company. You’ll retain better talent if you make it worth it for them to stay.
