    Pros

    Nice attractive products& work environment... lots of pretty items

    Cons

    Low pay, Work scheduling is set 2 weeks in advance....online app, however mgr constantly cuts shifts same day or on short notice and completely changes your work days with little notice. Seems to show no respect for employees private time & responsibilities outside work.

    Advice to Management

    Improve pay scale & show respect& consideration to your workers

    Pros

    Good as a second job.

    Cons

    Not good unless you're a manager.

    Advice to Management

    Staff should have seating options during downtimes, being on your feet for an entire shift is cruel.

    I worked at Pier 1 Imports full-time

    Pros

    Benefits and vacation time. There is a parking garage for your vehicle.

    Cons

    Corporate tries to exude a good culture yet managers do not convey this culture. It is highly political and dishonest. They offer no training or development of their people. They would rather hire from the outside than promote within. Experience and loyalty are not valued.

    Advice to Management

    Care about your people and be honest.
