Enjoyed the people I worked with
Sales Associate (Former Employee), Gainesville, FLJanuary 13, 2014
A lot of pressure on sales and credit card signups. A good company that has turned itself around and now offers additional help to its employees.

Sales Associate (Former Employee), Jackson, TNJanuary 12, 2014
Pros: employee discount
Very structured and well managed company. I enjoyed working with a pleasant yet professional management team, and being challenged toward constant productivity. Even min-wage jobs are given a full benefits package. Some of the sales requirements felt a little pushy when personally interacting with customers, but I enjoyed the chance to have a lot of – more... great conversation with customers. – less

Attend to customer needs, freight , maintain sales floor
Cashier/Sales Associate (Former Employee), Baytown, TXJanuary 10, 2014
A day of work at pier 1 consist of attending to customers needs. Most of the time the customers are regular shoppers. you get to know your customers and what their wants and needs are. The mangers are friendly and help you make your sales goal for the day. What i enjoyed most about the job was being able to interact with people of different age groups.

Sales Associate (Former Employee), Flower Mound, TXJanuary 10, 2014
I thourogly enjoyed working at Pier 1. I was able to work with customers on a daily basis. I was able to tap into my design experience to help customers come up with new ideas for their own homes. It was the kind of job I looked forward to going to every day.

fast paced work environment
sales associate (Former Employee), Frederick, MDJanuary 9, 2014
I didn't work for Pier 1 for a long period of time but, in that short period I worked for one of the best stores in the district. My managers were fantastic people that taught me a lot about good work ethic and just enjoying work. I can't walk into a Pier 1 without wanting to run around and start working. When the store would be slow there wouldn't – more... ever be people sitting around. I was taught to always be doing something even if there's nothing to be done. Overall, it was a great working experience. – less

Fun workplace while learning how to conduct business and increase revenue
Assistant Store Manager (Former Employee), Redmond, WAJanuary 7, 2014
Pros: fun environment, management was helpful in moving you up the ladder
Cons: limited hours for part time workers, insurance was minimal
Associates (Sales floor) are given 4 1/2 hours work shifts 3-4 per week. Management can work 4 1/4 - 8 hour shifts up to 40 hours per week. Employees followed protocol each morning and evening to open and close the store. Customer service is the priority with every employee at Pier 1. This was a terrific lesson in learning to deal with the public. What – more... to do to make the customer happy. It was also the most difficult part of the job. I found that some people are more difficult to make happy than others. It is a lesson in learning how to read people and foresee what they are looking for to satisfy them. The most enjoyable part of the job was learning how to display products and how to make them fit in customer's homes. To see the look on someone's face when they were truly happy with what they were shown or found in the store. – less

Sales Lead (Current Employee), st louis moJanuary 7, 2014
Pros: ok discount, beautiful products
Cons: awful technology, considering what it could be.
All in all really great company to work for, Pier 1 just needs to get it together with their help line for store use and also their technology for POS and inventory systems.

Pier 1 imports is a and enjoyable place to work just didn't have any room for adancement
Order Picker/Forklift Operator (Current Employee), Mansfield, TXDecember 29, 2013
Pros: free lunches
Cons: wages, no advancement
I learned a lot from working at Pier 1. I currently learned how to operate a Fork lift. My co workers were very helpful and we all were very good team players. The most enjoyable part of the job is that we all work together to make sure the job is done correctly. The hardest part of the job is that there is no room for advancement

The best place I ever worked. Fun and family environment.
Shift Supervisor (Former Employee), Jacksonville, FLDecember 26, 2013
Pros: the customers
Cons: i honestly can not think of one.
My day started with cash handling and paperwork, dusting and straightening the store to get ready to open. My co-workers would come into the store about thirty minutes before we opened, which gave me time to bring the stock out to the floor, and work on new floor sets. It was a very family oriented environment. Once opened
we worked out the stock, but – more... when we had customers it was all about them. This was the best part of my job. I loved helping them change entire rooms in their homes. We made sure everyone was helped and happy. We pushed our company card and I did so very well. We were a team and that made us stronger as a store, which lead to very happy customers and very high volume store. – less

Fun place to work, love the product
Sales Associate (Former Employee), Knoxville, TNDecember 20, 2013
Engaging with customers is a big part of the job, selling the Pier 1 credit card is biggest challenge but there are incentives for employees to promote it. Hard to walk through the store without building your own wish list. Friendly, approachable managers make for relaxed atmosphere.

Love working with customers making them happy
Sales Leader (Current Employee), Cranston, RIDecember 17, 2013
Cons: healthcare, cut hours so dont have to pay healthcare
I have enjoyed my employment with Pier!. As the years have flown by it some times get a little hard because the people of today don't have the same work ethics as the older generations do. The loss of benefits and the cutting of my hours has been a tremendous impact on my families life.
I care about the work I do and try to exceed expectations, but – more... it makes it tough when there is no pride in the work you do by your coworkers and management.
Don't get me wrong I love the people I work with they are just from a different younger generation.
There is plenty of education on the things we do but my upper management don't care, so we don't have backup when we try to put it into effect. Just frustration! This is why I went back to school for CNA – less

I work in the stock room. I unload the truck and then open all the new merchandise. This includes furniture, with some assembly, and shelf goods. I also put the new merchandise out onto the sales floor. I assist customers when needed and do some cleaning/straightening.

Good Part Time Work
Manager (Former Employee), Edgewater, NJDecember 10, 2013
Never work there full time Enjoyed my time there, but if you are a hard worker, they will take advantage of it. I was held back from promotions to a Store Manager because then Store Manager did not want to lose me.

Nice part time job
Sales Associate (Former Employee), Redlands, CADecember 10, 2013
Pros: if your not looking for long hours, then the 4 hour shifts would be a pro
Cons: short shifts, advancement
Pier 1 imports is a nice easy going part time experience. Customers do not really need much assistance, but i would attribute that to the type of cliental they cater more too. They are very willing to teach you anything you would like to know if enough interest is shown.
