    I worked at Pier 1 Imports part-time (less than a year)

    Pros

    Most of the people I worked with were very friendly. The assistant manger was a total sweetheart.

    Cons

    I was hired on as seasonal. I was lucky if I got more than 10 hours a week. Everyone was given a name tag and trained on register except me. I was expected to open credit cards on the sales floor. The manager rode me to get sales and peoples email addresses constantly. I was never praised when I met my goals or made big sales, although I was constantly reminded when I didn't. I was expected to move heavy pieces of furniture by myself and no one even trained me on how to do it safely. Employee discount is a joke with the hours they give to seasonal employees. I could barely afford to pay my bills much less buy expensive furniture and home goods with my tiny paychecks.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Give employees more hours. I get that seasonal employees are only temporary but they should be treated with the same respect as everyone else.

    Low pay. Consistently forced to be short staffed, which increases stress to work environment and drives a high employee turnover.

    Increase payroll for high traffic locations.
