I have been working at Pier 1 Imports part-time (more than 5 years)

Pros

Nice co-workers, happy customers, flexible schedule, decent part-time pay. Online scheduling system makes it easy to request off and check time sheets. Company gives random sales incentive bonuses, holiday gifts and a five year bonus! Nice perks for a part-time job!

Cons

Stock room is always a mess and is hard to get any merchandise out.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Please keep the gossiping between the management, do not involve the co-workers.

    I have been working at Pier 1 Imports part-time (more than 3 years)

    Pros

    As a part time associate i have gotten 6 raises in the last 3 years, starting as a seasonal associate ($10/hour) and now to Material Handler 1 ( $16/hour). Very friendly atmoshere and because of my part time status i have flexibility with my work schedule to allow time for school. Full time associates do not have this flexibility

    Cons

    For the past 2 years, supervisors and HR reps have been in and out of the job, making the work environment disorganized. The work is very physically demanding, often seems impossible to hit production numbers of 100% that is required. Associates get fired very often. Also a lack of equipment like forkilifts make it difficult to do work efficiently. Part time associate benifits are not the best. During peak holiday season you can kiss your life goodbye, working 11 hours plus, good for your wallet but hurts family time.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    ive often felt under appreciated, make sure you take care of your hard working associates.

    I have been working at Pier 1 Imports part-time (more than 3 years)

    Pros

    Love most people I work with, Love the merchandise and has decent benefits.

    Cons

    I am a Sales leader and was working full time at about 35-38 hours a week. After working in that position for nearly 2 years I was told I was only part-time and that my hours were going to be cut to 15-22 hrs a week. Rather than letting me stay full time and a second Sales lead remain part time they want to hire a 3rd sales lead and have all 3 people work part-time.
    Regional manager hires from other companies for store manager positions rather than promoting from within the company. Leading to low moral, as it shows us that all our hard work and dedication won't pay off in the end.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Start showing your employees a little more respect. Telling them in training videos that the companies success is all because of them, but refuse to pay them decent wages.
