A fun place to work.

Assistant Manager (Former Employee)
New Bern, NC (US)

I worked at Pier 1 Imports part-time for more than a year

ProsThe employee discount was a big plus. They offer insurance options for part-time employees. Opportunities to interact with people/customers from all walks of life.

ConsStore managers are in charge of scheduling. My personal experience was that the store manager continually scheduled me and another manager for weekend shifts, but refused to work more than one weekend for every two months despite higher management requesting she work more weekends. They require you to push their store credit card, so if you have a problem pushing 23%APR cards on people, this may not be the place for you.

Advice to Senior ManagementI would advise regional managers to require schedule submissions from store managers along with sales reports. This would give better insight to what problems may be leading to poor store performance.

Yes, I would recommend this company to a friend – I'm not optimistic about the outlook for this company

Pros: Very fun environment especially if you are into home accessories.… Cons: Not good if you can't stand around for 8 hours even when it's a slow day, you have to keep pushing the newsletter… Yes, I would recommend this company to a friend More
