I worked at Pier 1 Imports for a month. I have no ability to judge this store. I didn't like having to push a rewards card or credit card or whatever it was. But otherwise this was just typical retail.

Stay out the way and it’ll pay off in the long run so

It’s cool , but I wish it was more benefits. Management is terrible but just keep your head up and nothing won’t get in your way. Co workers are nice we don’t get much discounts but it’s cool


Free lunch


Short breaks

Not compensated for the amount of work, managers were absent minded.

Not a place that I would recommend. I didn’t like work environment. The managers would single employees out from time to time and there was little room for advancement

Productive work day

I worked during the COVID-19 outbreak and although things were hard because of the pandemic I’m happy I worked there. The managment and customers were nice and the work day was easy and stress free even when it got busy.


Productive, fast paced

Good company to work for and positive work environment. Growth opportunities within. Pay is fair. Healthy work life balance. Flexible scheduling for hourly employees.

Okay company, good for students

I worked there while I was in college and the short shifts allowed me to attend school full time however it was a very labor intensive job and the compensation was not worth it.

Fun and exciting

Fun place to work with lots of variety. Opportunity to grow in various departments including visual merchandising. Somewhat physical and active which helped the time pass quickly.


Employee discount, flexible schedule

Loved the product and the unique customers

I am very proud that I had the experience of working for this company. I am far from saying it didn't have its problems, all jobs do, but overall it was a great place to work! I met some of the best people in the world and learned so, so much!. The merchandise was one of a kind and the customers were amazing. I was honored to help so many people decorate their homes for so many special occasions. What fun that was! Unfortunately, the store is no longer in business, I will miss Pier One and it will forever be a part of my heart!


Great people and product


Low entry level pay

Horrible management

One of my worst work experiences. Management was horrible. The manager made a dress code where we all had to wear dress’s and high heels. Ridiculous.

Its a fun life of poverty!

Pier 1 was such a great environment, most of the time- like all retail environments, the Manager on Duty's attitude determines the environment: a negative attitude from the person in charge translates to a depressing environment.The pay is beyond terrible: this is a fun side job, that is all: it's a step up from minimum wage. That being the case, it's still a fun place to spend a few hours with coworkers who are usually pretty interesting and like-minded!

Fun place to work.

It was a fun place to work and everyone was really nice. Customers would return and request repeat assistance. I would have continued working there if they hadn't closed the store.


Great people


Low pay

Was a great company

Had fun working part time here as a second job. Management worked with me on a schedule that worked with my full time job. Was a great discount and my coworkers were awesome!

Don’t Recommend

Overall not a good experience. The pay is way too low for the amount of work required. Also the scheduling was crazy. You may be required to work any hours between 7 am and 9 pm. So you might go to sleep and have to come right back in the morning to deal with angry customers alllll day. Say goodbye to your weekends as well because you will definitely be working them. Extremely high turnover. Everyone from my training class quit within a year.


4 weeks PTO


Everything else, micromanaged, hard KPIs, back to back calls all day

Fast paced at times

Fast paced during holidays, frequent customers. Slow at times but still need to make the money needed. Very little hours and low pay. Sometimes fun if you have good coworkers and management. Furniture is nice but customers get so picky about little things because furniture is so expensive.


Time goes by fast

Fun place to work

I loved working for Pier 1! I enjoyed the product, the customer interaction, and that no two days were ever the same. Very sad to see this company go under.

The good and the bad

I enjoyed it, work always went by fast because of the busy work! I enjoyed working with the people, and how they challenged me- to grow! I enjoyed experiencing the seasons

Awesome Culture and Great Place to Work

Great place to work if you like customer service. This is not a typical retail job where the customers are left to shop on their own. You gain design experience and help customers create tablescapes, mantel displays, and anything else they need for their home. To succeed, you need to have extensive product knowledge to assist customers, but the pay is a bit low to account for everything you are expected to know/do. The culture and people are great, but you may not receive many hours if you are part time.


employee discount, benefits if full time, great culture


not many hours if part time, nights and weekends, too much emphasis on credit card openings

Fun Place to work

Really enjoyed my time at Pier 1! Such a fun place to work. The team was great. My manager was amazing. He had no problem with trusting his team to take the lead on some things.
