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

    Pros

    Management gets a lot of sales and merchandising training which is extremely useful to take into other jobs in the future

    Cons

    The hours and pay can be a little lacking, and at least in my experience they overwork salaried managers to the point where they're too burnt out to actually contribute to the team.

    Advice to Management

    Schedule longer shifts for store associates and pay your team better.

    Pros

    Discount, co-workers, appreciation, enjoyable, and fun!

    Cons

    Low hourly, no benefits for part-time sales leaders, tile floors suck after 4 hours.

    Advice to Management

    The rule on tattoos needs to be revisited. It's tacky for associated to cover with bandages or makeup. The company should be proud of their team members for who they are, tattoos and all. After all, they choose to work at Pier 1.

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

    Pros

    Very flexible schedule. My manager always works with my schedule. Great discount. Opportunity to move up within the company. Really fun seeing all the new items that come in weekly. If you love decorating this is an awesome place to work.

    Cons

    The pay is not great. If you want people who care about their job and are motivated to sell and push the credit card you are going to have to PAY MORE MONEY.

    Advice to Management

    Should really stand up for associates as far as pay goes. You get what you pay for.
