Fantastic

Retail Associate (Current Employee)
Staten Island, NY (US)

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

ProsFriendly, Fun, Good discount. Overall its a great place to work and shop! I am a huge fan of it! I reccomend it to anyone looking for part time work.

ConsOnly real negatives, it is part-time. Only 4 hours a week. And the stock room could be a little unorganized at times which makes it difficult to do your job as well as you would like.

Great Company!

Sales Associate (Former Employee)
Cincinnati, OH (US)

I worked at Pier 1 Imports part-time for more than 5 years

ProsI worked for a Pier 1 for almost 6 years, and I loved every minute of it. I thought that the managers did a great job of scheduling fairly and letting people have the day off for events. Also, Pier 1 is great to employees--store discount can be used on sale and clearance items, you get a bonus at Christmas, and every now and then, there are little giveaways at the store meetings. Would highly recommend this company for anyone looking for good part-time work.

ConsMust be able to climb ladders, move and build furniture, and carry heavy objects.
