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

    Pros

    I worked at my store for about two years. During that time I meet some amazing people. Most of my managers were always willing to help/train. The managers at the Clifton NJ location were always on the floor and were willing to help the cashwrap when we were swamped. During that time alot of us felt like family and alot of ex-employees come and visit (and remain faithful customers). During holidays corporate gave us store "money" and extra discount. We had after work bonding events and when we had to come in on a weekend to learn about the new season products the managers made it fun. This was one of the best jobs I ever had.

    Cons

    Don't get me wrong like any retail job there were other employees in my position that didn't do their job, but they rarely lasted longer than a "season". We had one manager that kept going on some form of medical leave. Dhe would work for a week and then be off for a few months. I heard she did this before I was employeed. She also stayed in the back office working on personal matters unlike the other managers. She didn't last long.

    Pros

    So far Pier 1 has been a great place to work for. They have an extensive training program and pretty decent Benefits Package as well. Starting pay was more than reasonable and getting hours have been no problem at all. Great work environment. Management is always op[en to suggestions and actions implements them. They have also started education benefits. Definitely planning on staying with this company longterm

    Basically you sell furniture to angry old ladies. Most of your time will be spent just hanging out unless you get a crazy person that wants you to design a room for her.

    Gets boring sometimes, but that's what dra wing paper is for.

    Advice to Management

    Keep doing what you're doing, other than that, I don't care.
