I have been working at Pier 1 Imports full-time for more than 8 years

Pros

Employee discount, fun merchandise, working with great customers, leading talented associates, great home office

Cons

New regional manager every 3 months. It is difficult to build mentoring/business relationships when there is so much inconsistency. There is a lot of pettiness and little remains confidential with senior management.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Please fill your positions in a timely manner. It creates low morale and it is a difficult working environment.

    I worked at Pier 1 Imports part-time for less than a year

    Pros

    Was a good part-time, minimum wage job.

    Cons

    Quickly realized there was little room to move up. Store manager had been there for years. Other sales associates who had been there for years were planning on moving on because they couldn't get any semblance of a promotion. Other retail places seem to have more opportunities.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Give us more credit! I felt small and replaceable (I guess I was).

    I have been working at Pier 1 Imports full-time for more than 3 years

    Pros

    There is a lot of variety in day to day activities and workload. There is always something new happening and the job is never dull. The company values employee feedback and is always working to improve processes. Store managers are not mico-managed. There is some room for creativity and initiative is recognized.

    Cons

    It is a very physically demanding job, lots of walking and heavy lifting, very little sitting. There is a very broad assortment of merchandise in relatively small space that can be difficult to deal with. To be truly successful a GM needs to work long hours. Compensation is relatively is low and associate retention is a challenge.
