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

    Pros

    Decent discount on store merchandise. Flexible work schedule. Ability to switch working days with co-workers. First crack at freshly reduced merchandise!

    Cons

    Part-time really is part time..........!
    Management's insistence on pushing the store branded credit cards is sometimes a bit much!

    I worked at Pier 1 Imports full-time (More than 5 years)

    Pros

    Pier 1 had a great training program for management which really prepares you for a future outside of retail. The company culture was great. Quick turnaround for merchandise which kept things fresh and exciting.

    Cons

    In my experience, any management position at Pier 1 is not conducive to having children. It just does not provide any flexibility for sick children, doctor appointments, etc. I'm not talking about the "unreasonable" either. For someone with the right lifestyle, this job offers tremendous opportunity. You won't find work/life balance here if you are trying to juggle a family. And forget being pregnant! It's almost impossible to perform your job balancing a pregnancy as management is rather inflexible as to scheduling extra support so you don't have to be on ladders, loading furniture, etc.

    Advice to Management

    Prioritize your long-standing employees and support them through life transitions. A little accommodation can go a long way for employees who have been there for several years.
