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

    Pros

    Most of the people I worked with were very friendly. The assistant manger was a total sweetheart.

    Cons

    I was hired on as seasonal. I was lucky if I got more than 10 hours a week. Everyone was given a name tag and trained on register except me. I was expected to open credit cards on the sales floor. The manager rode me to get sales and peoples email addresses constantly. I was never praised when I met my goals or made big sales, although I was constantly reminded when I didn't. I was expected to move heavy pieces of furniture by myself and no one even trained me on how to do it safely. Employee discount is a joke with the hours they give to seasonal employees. I could barely afford to pay my bills much less buy expensive furniture and home goods with my tiny paychecks.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Give employees more hours. I get that seasonal employees are only temporary but they should be treated with the same respect as everyone else.

    I have been working at Pier 1 Imports full-time for more than 5 years

    Pros

    The environment if really fun. Everyday is always different. The merchandise is so fun and unique.

    Cons

    They work you very hard and have huge expectations. This wouldn't be so bad if you were paid fairly. You can go to most other retailers and work in a lower position and get paid more.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    You need to pay people what they are worth. Assistant Store Managers work very hard and are not paid well. Store Managers work even harder and again do not get paid enough for what they go through.
