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

    Pros

    Nice co-workers and comfortable environment

    Cons

    Were essentially "on-call," meaning you have to be prepared to work much more hours than you actually do, and you don't know if you will or won't work those certain shifts until shortly before it is scheduled to start.

    I have been working at Pier 1 Imports part-time (More than 5 years)

    Pros

    Usually, it's the people you work with. I enjoy transitions for different seasons and having projects throughout the day.

    Cons

    Pay and lack of good communication.
    My raise for the year was about 8 cents, as a Sales Leader/Interim Assistant Store Manager.
    In the last year, Pier 1 has had horrible communication between stores and corporate. Sales are always changing, prices are always changing, or how they want us to interact with customers. All of this can happen in a week, which is extremely frustrating when you've spent so many hours prepping one thing, just to have to take it down or change it the next day.

    Pros

    Great team and friendly coworkers. The atmosphere was usually relaxed but there is always tasks that need to get done

    Cons

    Low pay even for managers, and the raises were no more than a dollar if you were lucky. Also had problems with keeping a store manager so reviews were missed or unfairly judged.

    Advice to Management

    Reward the employees with larger raises and they will stay around! I loved this place but I couldn't stay with $11 a hour for a management position.

    I have been working at Pier 1 Imports part-time

    Pros

    For the most part it was very laid back and easy.

    Cons

    You have top be on call at all times and the only way to get any hours is to pick up shifts people couldn't make it to.

    Advice to Management

    Give people set hours they have to make it to and people wouldn't miss as much and you wouldn't need everyone to be on call.
