    Pros

    Always so thing to do. Always shifts to pick up. Never the same thing every day. Managers seem to care about employees but some do not work as hard

    Cons

    Not enough hours. Corporate asks more then possible with freight. Pier 1 is a credit card sales place not a retail store. Priority is on selling credit cards not sales.

    Advice to Management

    3+ people on fright no matter what the store.

    Pros

    In most cases they are very flexible with scheduling especially if you're a student. They offer a 25% employee discount. Also, if you're moving and wish to transfer locations, it's possible!

    Cons

    It's hard to advance to higher positions and get promoted. Mandatory weekend availability. Very likey you'll work holidays. If the company doesn't make their goal of sales they cut hours.

    Very raxed environment, friendly employees, very flexible scheduling, great learning environment, customers are fun and friendly and always looking for your help.

    I have been working at Pier 1 Imports part-time

    Pros

    Friendly work environment, surprisingly polite customer base. Over all a really nice place to work for anyone wanting a small padding to their income.

    Cons

    Availability of hours makes it difficult for most employees to have this be their only job, so commitment to the company can take a hit.

    Advice to Management

    Authorization for employees to work more than 8 to 20 hours a week would help increase retention.

    I worked at Pier 1 Imports part-time

    Pros

    It was a great first job to have to gain experience in the retail industry. The people were always great and the products were of a great quality.

    Cons

    Anyone the wasn't a manager wouldn't work over 40 hours a week, so even if you wanted to be a full time employee it wouldn't happen.
