    I have been working at Pier 1 Imports part-time

    Pros

    The hours are flexible and the products are really nice. It's a nice little story to work in.

    Cons

    You barely get any hours. I started with the impression that I would work 20 hours a week. Instead, I was working around 5 hours a week. The shifts were normally two -three hours. You also have to mop and clean the bathrooms in addition to fixing up the store at closing time for just 10.25 per hour. The pay is really low.

    Advice to Management

    Part time workers should have more hours and higher pay since they're doing the job of sales associate and janitor.

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

    Pros

    I love my team, my managers and especially my guest/customers. They all love Ne as well. 6 years and counting. I open Pier 1 credit cards (4 today). I drive sales. I live and walk to work smiling. Pier 1 is one block north of the new Dicks.

    Cons

    Sorry sorry sorry, there are no cons. However there a occasional difficult customers or those tha purchase large furniture and insist it will fit into their Mini Cooper

    Advice to Management

    Pay me more, even though I'd work for free. Put a vending machine in the break room. Keep me at the registers since I capture email addresses, open credit cards and create customer loyalty.

    I have been working at Pier 1 Imports part-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    - Awesome associates (at this location). All very helpful and supportive of team.
    - "sales" aspect minimal
    - lots of opportunity to do visual merchandising

    Cons

    Company as a whole isn't great. Pay is crumby, no option for benefits unless you are full time (which is only store & assistant manager), not much room to move up (at least not in Canada). Managers make a commission off sales that associates make. Feel very worthless in the company as an associate at times.

    I have been working at Pier 1 Imports part-time

    Pros

    Nice employee discount can be used on top of sale prices.

    Cons

    Raises are terrible and non-existent. People who are new hires make more than people who have been there for some time.

    Advice to Management

    Work with each of your sales leaders and associates and really get to know them and how they work. Utilize your dedicated employees and cut the ones that are only interested in collecting a paycheck. Compensate your dedicated workers fairly.
