    Pros

    Working on the floor at Pier 1 was one of the best jobs I've ever had. No money in it at all for a college graduate, but the environment and people were great!

    Cons

    Nothing negative to say for a part time job.

    If you like home decor, you'll enjoy working at Pier 1 - if you're not in it for the $ because pay for associates is low

    Pros

    25% discount - even on clearance items. Employees are generally pleasant people. Store I worked at was not too busy and got to know regular customers and develop good relationships. Store environment is pleasing to the eye and decor is great. They worked with my schedule because they liked me (I wanted mornings) and they were eager to comply to keep me happy.

    Cons

    Pay increases are minimal each year. Working store transitions are not fun if the store has the old-fashioned pedestals. Transitions can happen 1-2 times each month, usually on a Sunday night - start at 7-8 and finish at midnight or later. Some events transitions the entire store.

    Advice to Management

    Better incentives should be offered for a job well done. The reward certificates can be $1, or $5. Not very much for those who work hard. Also, reward employees with better pay increases each year.

    Pros

    Great work environment and co workers. Formed a lot of great relationships. For the most part customers are easy to work with. Flexible schedule.

    Cons

    Management changes a lot and makes it unstable. People who were hired after me were making more even though I was one of the best employees. I was getting too many hours while others were only getting 1 shift a week, need to find a balance.

    Advice to Management

    Make pay equal and fair for employees who have been working there longer
