Always changing products, fun place to work.
Shipper receiver and CSR (Current Employee), London, ONJuly 21, 2014
Pros: the ladies i work with always bring in baked goods.
Cons: not enough hours.
A typical day of work would be unloading the truck with new merchandise, receiving product up to and including proper pricing and then out onto the floor. I have and continue to learn a great deal about the various products as they come in which ofcourse makes it easier to sell if you know the items inside out. My co-workers are a blast and we all work – more... together as a team. The hardest part of my job is when my shift ends and I have to go home. The most enjoyable part of my job is just being a part of the Company. – less

Really fun and rewarding job
Sales Associate (Current Employee), Langley, BCJuly 15, 2013
Pier one is a wonderful place to work. Everyone I work with feel like my second family and they make coming to work enjoyable. There is always something to do and that makes the shifts pass by quickly. The management are there to help and are always willing to. The hardest part is when displays need to be done. There is a guideline to follow but sometimes – more... we don't have the product. It always turns out okay though, because we make it happen! The easiest part is coming to work and being there. The atmosphere that has been created is welcoming and fun. – less

Enjoyable atmosphere, good management, and stimulating.
Sales Associate and Cashier (Current Employee), Pointe-Claire, QCDecember 17, 2012
Pros: great co-workers and management, has given me valuable experience.
Cons: varying hours, little room for advancement.
Outstanding environment to work in due to helpful management and strong staff bond. The company as a whole takes great pride in their merchandise, as well as their employees and customer service.

I work as a sales associate and cashier, but very often work in the stock room as well. I typically replenish merchandise, set up merchandise displays, tag – more... sales and liquidations, and organise overstock items. Every week I help to unload, unwrap, and price new/replenishment merchandise, as well as verify customer orders.

The job has taught me how to multitask effectively, and the importance of organisation and teamwork. I have been helpful in keeping the store productive, and I am proud of my contributions. The hardest part of the job is the continuos upkeep of both the floor and stock room. Displays are not only updated with every holiday/season, but are constantly altered in order to accomodate fluctuations in merchandise quantities. This requires off-hour work late into the night, as well as starting early in the morning, so as not to cause interference when the store is open. That being said, there is always something to be done, which means the job never feels stagnant. – less

I give the store I worked at an A+ on everything. It is really a fun place to work and most everything that I learned about retail I picked up at this store.

Area manager, store managers and co-workers all beautiful people.

The hardest part of the job is you get to go home and the most enjoyable I got to work on the D├ęcor Pillow Wall and my hard work – more... was always recognized. – less

Very low paying and No full time
Sales (Former Employee), Beaumont, TXSeptember 24, 2014
Pros: peers are nice
Cons: pay, company
This company doesn't seem to care too much about their employees. Very small incentives if any. Management is unprofessional, but they are expected to work a lot of hours. Pay is only $8.00/hr. They know their front door is a revolving one for part time employees and that is probably why they are not too invested in their employees. They could solve – more... that problem by offering better pay and taking an interest in workers. – less

Working at a Large Company is Not My Thing
Sales Associate (Former Employee), Boulder, COSeptember 18, 2014
Pros: great products
Cons: management
I worked at Pier 1 for a summer after graduating from college. I enjoy the eclectic feel of Pier 1 as I have bought many of their products. When I worked for the company, I felt as though I was not being paid enough for the amount put in. I was not rewarded with good praises for doing extra work. Even though I constantly offered my assistance, I was – more... not give positive reinforcement. With only negative reinforcement (ex. when I asked a question the manager would respond with 'oh, you don't know that already?') I started to feel resentment towards management and my work.

My co-workers were very kind and fun and all workers agreed with me that management made the job unpleasant.

The hardest part of the job was working late - sometimes past midnight - moving furniture.

The most enjoyable part of the job was organizing the new products when they came on the truck and working with the customers. – less

SALES ASSOCIATE (Former Employee), Peoria,IllinpoisSeptember 17, 2014
Pros: careing girls
Cons: seasonal and not enough hours.
A typical day at work was unloading a truck before store hours while handling a manifest. I was also responsible for setting store products in bays upon staging for store display. What I learned at the job was reading from a manifest and helping customers with pick-up orders. My co-works worked with me all the way on keeping up with the necessities – more... of the job. The job was really laid back with splendid girls. – less

Fun but Hard work a must.
Sales Lead (Former Employee), Abilene, TXSeptember 15, 2014
Pros: good co-workers
Cons: turn over in college town, management changed several times
You could have fun and joke around with co-workers as long as work was being done. Wednesdays were always truck days and if you were on the crew to do the truck you were there at 6 am to 10 am unloading, unboxing, and stocking product. Product ranged from napkin rings to large dressers. I loved getting to decorate for holidays even if you had a specific – more... picture you were following. Typical days were full of stocking product, moving furniture, hanging pictures, sweeping up broken glasses. The times were I was not at work because of being sick one manager was not very understandable about it. Others were patient and understood. – less
