      Pros

      Flexible scheduling around other jobs, school, etc. Very in depth training program. Employee discount and fun holiday perks/activities.

      Cons

      Management could be very unorganized at times. Pressure to sign people up for rewards programs. No clear way of moving up in the company. Clientele could be very demanding.

      Pros

      Employee discount, enough variety in one store to keep it semi interesting.

      Cons

      Corporate guidance is needlessly rigid, company rips off third world artists and manufacturers, mind numbing music on repeat, and sales associates are expected to keep massive store clean and organized despite being understaffed for most shifts.

      Fun, great management on store/regional level

      Pros

      Fun work environment! Great products, you get to play and decorate. ASM’s have control over visual merchandising. Upper management (store manager/regional director) are very supportive and practice open door policy. Flexible scheduling, easy to request time off, employee discount. If you want to move up make it known, and they will work with you if you have the skill!

      Cons

      The pay is low for associates and ASM’s. Very physically demanding during shipments, and store transitions (4xyr). Not given enough payroll for freight hours. Sales incentives are poor.

      Pros

      Laid back for the most part. Flexible hours, employee discount, get to decorate and help people decorate.

      Cons

      I'm now on my second location at pier 1. the first store i worked at closed and now the second i am working at is also closing thanks to brick and mortar dome. Asking everyone if they want to sign up for the credit card, and they keep track of how many cards each employee has gotten each day/week/month/quarter. constantly rearranging the store. a lot of breaking down boxes. spend a lot of time wrapping breakables at register.
