    I worked at Pier 1 Imports part-time

    Pros

    It was a great first job to have to gain experience in the retail industry. The people were always great and the products were of a great quality.

    Cons

    Anyone the wasn't a manager wouldn't work over 40 hours a week, so even if you wanted to be a full time employee it wouldn't happen.

    Cons

    Upper management changes a lot. Some are good, some very not.

    I have been working at Pier 1 Imports (Less than a year)

    Pros

    Context: I was hired as a seasonal and haven't been around long. So, take with a grain of salt or two.

    Friendly and competent staff for the most part, save for the most recent manager, who seems to not know what he's doing. Easy work, plenty of resources, and plenty of options in regards to what you're doing and your scheduling.

    Cons

    Can be disorganized, and places a lot of pressure on customer interaction and the sales, as well as selling credit cards.

    Advice to Management

    Try not to irritate customers with oversaturation, despite what the new guy says. Also, you don't need the new guy.
