I worked for Pier 1 imports for 20 years. I really liked working there. There pay I don’t think was that good . I started at 750 or 800 dollars hr after 20 years I barely doubled that. I was a really good sales associate . Made a lot of really good sales . More acknowledgment would have been appreciated , BETTER RAISES WOULD HAVE BEEN APPRECIATED. I guess I doesn’t matter now they a BANKRUPT SO SAF

Pier 1 was a wonderful atmosphere where; if you were interested in growing and learning- the management team backed you up. The store teams were like a family and the customers were more often than not -really happy to be in the store taking in all the sights and smells. A working experience I will treasure.

Enjoyed working at Pier 1 Imports. People were amazing. Duties kept you busy making the store beautiful for customers. Such a great place to work, sad they closed their stores in Canada.

Pier 1 went bankrupt and all stores were closed at the end of February 2020. I enjoyed working at Pier 1 Imports as the customers are regular customers and know what they like. We had a steady stream of new product coming in every week.

The managers that I reported to were wonderful. The environment was pleasant. Unfortunately my job ended due to the company going bankrupt. I really enjoyed working there, my co-workers, mangers and the customers.

I loved my time at Pier1 Imports! Always on the go, never the same day twice and it's so rewarding to see your guests/customers come back in with pictures to show off their new decor. It's hard work and I left everyday looking forward to the next!

Other than the fact that the company has since gone bankrupt across Canada it was an enriching, challenging and above all fun place to work with great camaraderie!

Over worked under paid

Always under a microscope being watched by the DM via cameras

Terrible culture of intimidation

As a sales associate I dealt mostly with customers, helping them decide on their purchase and answering their décor questions. The most enjoyable part of this job was the interaction with customers and co-workers

This has been one of my favourite places I have ever worked. As soon as I started working for Pier 1, I felt like I had just joined a new family. The management really does care about their employees and the other staff are all respectful and delightful. The customers are generally friendly and you get to spend a lot of time helping them and finding what they need for them. It is a relaxing and enjoyable environment . The hardest part of the job would be learning all of the fine details on the furniture that arrives. The most enjoyable would be the time you get to spend with the customers.

If the store wasn't closing I would continue to be a part time employee! The management was qualified, helpful in all situations, respectful and a team player.

Products and corporate management is great. Middle management is weak and ineffective. Pay is horrible. Negligible perks. No proper coaching. Weak team meeting events.
