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

OK place to work
Sales Associate (Former Employee), FloridaJuly 18, 2014
Pros: fun atmosphere
Cons: no breaks, low pay and hours
It's a good place to work as long as you don't have bills to pay or need daycare. Not very many hours, maybe 10. The leaders are always fair and knowledgeable and eager to help when needed.

Hardest part of the job is carrying furniture by myself to load for the customer. Most of the customer's furniture is in the back and since we are always short – more... handed there's never any extra help to load i'm doing it by myself. – less

Sales Associate (Former Employee), IlJuly 17, 2014
New store; management was very unstable didn't make you feel secure with your own job
A typical day was interacting and giving our customers the best possible customer service meeting all their needs
I really enjoyed working there and everything about it but I didn't feel like they were secure management barely knew what they were doing and at times – more... there was so much drama with the management and some employees you would feel as if you were in high school – less

Pier 1 keeps Managers happy.
Stockroom Coordinator (Former Employee), Enfield CTJuly 13, 2014
Pros: unique environment like nowhere else
Cons: part time, bad pay, overworked, no job entitlements.
Pier 1 can only use you where they need you. Moving around in the company does not happen unless you are one of the few survivors who can truly enjoy your job. I worked in a position that was eliminated so I was falsely doing something that I had no job title for. Regardless I did it for the experience. The pay for managers is well enough to keep you – more... happy while the pay for the employees is just bad enough to keep a decent turnover rate. – less

Great Place to work, fun coworkers, needs more business!
Sales Associate (Current Employee), Brea, CAJune 29, 2014
Pros: great job during the holidays, competitive pay, great staff!
Cons: short breaks, slow business, not enough hours, management work part time mostly!
I honestly like my job very much here! I've grown attached to the manager staff and the employees! We are all for the most part, part-time college students trying to earn a living, some of us even go to the same school! The management is fun, friendly and approachable and get business done when it's needed. The hardest part of the job is to keep up – more... with the constant new products that come in almost every day, product knowledge and opening credit cards is KEY here! Unfortunately, since it is a high end furniture store we do not get as much business that we'd like year round. During the holiday season it's great, it's always busy and you WILL get hours! Every other time of the year though it is slow and we tend to get our hours cut constantly even mid shift! Other than that it is a great job! – less
