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

    Pros

    I love the flexibility. I am a full time college student and my manager works around that for me so that I can still work 20 hours a week!

    Cons

    A "FLEX" is a shift you have to call for in advance to see if the manager needs you to work that day. It can be aggravating on days when you want to get out and do something but you're stuck because you don't know if you'll have to go into work or not.

    Pros

    Work/life balance, managers are really understanding. Love the atmosphere.

    Cons

    Pay isn't the greatest. Thought Pier 1 would pay much more than minimum wage.

    I don't have any cons other than the basics of any retail environment. Holiday hours, lots of straightening, etc. It's a good first retail experience

    I worked at Pier 1 Imports full-time (less than a year)

    Pros

    Management always treated everyone fairly and were always very understanding if anyone needed to switch shifts or have any problems. The company is very customer focused and make all the employees feel comfortable if they have any suggestions.

    Cons

    The only con is they really push you to get customers to open up credit cards and a lot of customers don't want to talk to someone about opening a credit card.
