    I worked at Pier 1 Imports part-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    Company appreciates it's employees. A lot of one-on-one interaction with co-workers. Being a small store makes it easier to work as a team. Follow up with company training.

    Cons

    A lot of pressure to open credit cards. Customers are very difficult to deal with.

    I worked at Pier 1 Imports full-time

    Pros

    You could tell the company cared about the employees. It had a very friendly and family like atmosphere. Training was sufficient and helpful. Management meetings were also beneficial and always a great experience. Truly enjoyed working for this company.

    Cons

    There was more work that needed to be done than time was allotted for. It seemed as if home office consist of people who had never actually worked the floor, because there were times when they wanted things completed that would never get completed without eating up hours outside of the hours we were given to complete certain task.

    Advice to Management

    Never ask you staff to do something you wouldn't do yourself. I was lucky enough to work under some very fantastic management at the store level, district level, regional level, and beyond.

    I have been working at Pier 1 Imports part-time

    Pros

    - Supportive, friendly atmosphere with coworkers and managers. They keep things professional, but I can genuinely say I always feel supported and appreciated.
    - You don't make commission, which is also a con. Not making commission means I can interact with the customers more genuinely and help them find something they truly enjoy rather than immediately pushing the most expensive items.
    - The majority of my customers have been great to work with and our regulars are always fun to help sell to.
    - Their website is easy to navigate and helps build the sale in and out of the store.
    - Shifts are short. Good for supplemental income.
    - Very good first sales job for younger people and a good part-time job for older people looking to make a bit on the side.

    Cons

    - You don't make commission and the pay isn't great compared to other sales jobs.
    - Might have just been my location, but not many hours available for work. This can also be a pro if you're picking it up as an extra job on the side.
    - Inventory/item availability is sometimes misleading when placing customer orders. Has led to some awkward situations.

    Pros

    The team I have is fantastic, customers are generally grateful and friendly, the pay is pretty nice, the hours are very flexible, training is very helpful and the job really whips you into shape.

    Cons

    There is a lot of heavy lifting if you're able to do it and the programs that keep us updated on stock can get a little screwy sometimes.

    Advice to Management

    Keep doing what you're doing, because from what I can tell pier 1 is a fantastic company to work for.
