Super fun place to work with great management
Sales Associate (Former Employee), Miami, FLSeptember 25, 2014
Pros: always free breakfast or lunches, great discount for employees
Cons: need more hours
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

Friendly Care taking job.
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

Sales Associate (Former Employee), Lake Charles, LouisianaSeptember 11, 2014
Pros: meeting various types of people and working in a positive environment
Cons: not mentally stimulating work
I worked part-time as a sales associate. The shifts were short hours, but management was very accommodating to my school and coaching schedules. My co-workers had positive attitudes and were always willing to approach sales or projects as a team. The most difficult part of the job was communicating with customers without product knowledge, but as I – more... gained experience and confidence, sales became easier. I enjoyed the physical tasks of the job such as working freight, assembling furniture, and creating displays for event sales. – less

Sales Associate (Former Employee), Victoria, TXAugust 26, 2014
My job involved greeting customers as they entered, assisting them in finding and choosing products, and register duties, including returns/exchanges. My co-workers and management were always friendly and very helpful, willing to work with my schedule and answer any questions I had. The hardest (and least enjoyable) part for me was up-selling products – more... and the credit card our company offered. However, I enjoyed my time at Pier 1 very much. – less
