I worked at Pier 1 Imports full-time (more than 3 years)

Pros

Good work/life balance. Great bonus program! Laid back company.

Cons

Once you are hired in for a particular position, you will be stuck with that position. No opportunities to move up within the company. People tend to stick around for a long time. Company pays below market value.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Create more opportunities for people to advance. Pay people what they are worth.

    I worked at Pier 1 Imports part-time (more than an year)

    Pros

    The retail environment is one that fosters growth in superb customer service. Every customer who walks in the door is acknowledged, and as an associate, one's duty is to meet their needs. The Pier 1 experience for employees is one of satisfaction for serving customers.

    Cons

    Unfortunately, the room for growth is relative to the store size. Upper management is not focused enough on growing their retail employees in terms of rank; only in terms of service to the customer.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    It would be beneficial to the retail employees who want to advance with the company if management would acknowledge their employees in this regard, and take the necessary steps to foster that kind of growth.
