    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.

  6. My experience with Pier 1 was very positive

    Pros

    When I did work in the store the best thing I can say is I had wonderful Managers and coworkers that made my first 5 years bearable.

    Cons

    They don't really care about you as an individual. Hard work and loyalty does not get noticed, they rather continue to hire new people. The also don't believe your safety is important when there are ice storms and severe weather ( Tornado, Ice Storms, Flooding). They expect you to come into work or it will count against you. They don't consider Customer Relations apart of Home Office, so any early releases due to these weather concerns don't apply to you.

    Advice to Management

    Learn how to value those who are loyal to you. Treat your customers better, from what I learned in Customer Relations its more in

    Pros

    Nice atmosphere.Employee discount especially when items on clearance. Can be creative with helping customers design their homes. Fun coworkers.

    Cons

    Low salary. No advance work schedule. Favoritism towards select employees. Unloading delivery trucks with insufficient staff. Unboxing merchandise while store is open.

    Advice to Management

    Get out of back office and get on sales floor. Prepare work schedule at least 1 week in advance. Prep merchandise in store room to not clog aisles.

  9. Its a fun happy place to work

    Pros

    The employee discount is the best!

    Cons

    Standing for 5 hours is hard.

    Advice to Management

    Let employees lean, when there are little to no customers in the store.

  10. Fun college job with little room for growth.

    Pros

    Great discounts on merchandise. Having a flexible schedule was great while in college. I loved the people I worked with. They were my favorite aspect of the job.

    Cons

    Very unorganized. Poor management. Poor quality products. I think my managers were very inexperienced and received very little training. Sales goals often took precedence over providing a quality experience and products to customers.
