    I have been working at Pier 1 Imports part-time

    Pros

    Discount, co- workers, displays, pay is more than minimum wage.

    Cons

    4 hour shifts. No short breaks. Constantly being badgered by management to get people to sign up for credit cards. This came before customer service. Only reward, $2 to spend in store. My manager would talk to me about it 2-3 times per shift. Her incentive is probably more than $2. It is nerve wracking having someone breathing down your neck about it and other projects suffer. Will never work for a company that pushes a credit card again.

    Advice to Management

    Focus on customer service and your employees. Let them ask once about the credit card and leave it at that. Most people that don't have one get annoyed by it.

    Pros

    Fun people, fun customers, fun merchandise! Love the store environment. The customers make the day fun and pass quickly.

    Cons

    Cant think of anything. Other than it used to be even more fun when the store carried special items that were limited in distribution. Example unique masks.

    Advice to Management

    Great merchandise mix. I really cant think of any other suggestions. It is a great store. Keep up the good work.
