    I have been working at Pier 1 Imports

    Pros

    25% discount, learn visual merchandising skills, be surrounded by beautiful products.

    Cons

    Suppression of costs translates to poor employee compensation, including subpar insurance, minimal raises, short work shifts, etc.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Invest in your associates a little more. A lot of talent slips through the cracks when you treat lower level employees like they're disposable.

    Application Details

    I applied online. The process took a dayinterviewed at Pier 1 Imports.

    Interview Details

    Interview was pretty basic stuff. Why do you want to work here, what is your sales experience, what is your availabiltiy. How did you take a negative and turn it into a positive? I think they have a set interview process which is written down for management to ask. It all seemed that way to me at least. It was a casual and friendly interview. I felt comfortable and was not nervous about it.
