    I have been working at Pier 1 Imports part-time

    Pros

    Fun place to work, lots of opportunities to be creative when merchandising the store. Customers over all are fun to work with and design for.

    Cons

    Asking young girls to unload trucks full of furniture multiple times a week. Hire stock associates or schedule people who can unload the truck without injuring themselves! Spread out who gets the 5am hours, don't just give it to one person...

    I worked at Pier 1 Imports full-time (More than 5 years)

    Pros

    great people and product, employee discount is pretty good and benefits are standard, fun atmosphere

    Cons

    expect too much for the pay, lots of physical labor, workload is unreasonable considering resources available

    Advice to Management

    work on developing your management first because it's almost impossible to handle the task load on your own

    I worked at Pier 1 Imports part-time (More than 10 years)

    Pros

    Working with all types of items that I love and purchase for my own home and find beautiful and easy to sell to others. The ladies that have helped me when in stores are closer to my age and I have found them so very helpful and happy to help. I would enjoy working with a group of women like this.
    The locations of several of the stores are very convenient for me.

    Cons

    No cons I can think of at this time. I would do my time before any advice. Pier 1 is one of my favorite stores to frequent.

    Advice to Management

    I would have to work there to give any constructive advice right now.

    Pros

    Very flexible work schedules available. My manager is very good about scheduling my shifts around my other job and requests for time off.

    Cons

    The company often doesn't give the manager enough payroll hours to have part time employees work more than two or three days a week.

    Advice to Management

    Allow for more hours of work for employees that want it.
