I enjoyed the work atmosphere, but found the culture very restrictive. There was no room for innovation since all policies were determined by a remote head office, with little regard for the differences between US and Canadian culture. The products were excellent and easy to sell, except when pricing was significantly different from US prices published on-line. There was a fair amount of sell-determination, particularly with regard to how long we spent with a customer, but rules regarding greeting and questioning customers on their needs, asking for e-mail addresses etc. were a bit onerous.

I loved working at Pier1, the local team & manager were fabulous, friendly and very helpful. They had amazing training when I started the job, they really set you up for success. I've learned this, especially right now, having just started at a job with little to no training. On a corporate level there were some rules I didn't agree for example - throwing out perfectly good products if they were slightly damaged or old stock that wasn't sold. I'm an avid believer in taking care of our environment and they could have got with the times and changed the policy and given things to thrift stores or employees/customers instead of throwing them out. Also would have been nice to make a bit more $ than minimum wage but I was okay with it because I loved my job so much. Unfortunately there was no job security as Pier1 closed 5 months after I started. Was so disappointed as I truly loved working there. Would have stayed there forever had they not closed. Really miss working there and the team.
Points positifs
Beautiful environment to work in everyday, wonderful team, staff discount, amazing training
Points négatifs
company policy to destroy perfectly good stock because it was old, slightly damaged but could be used, not an environmentally friendly company

Company is leaving Canada; jobs no longer available. Company is being sold, employees found out via social media which was not appreciated. Was a lovely environment.

- great culture - fast pace - can be stressful at times, physically demanding, many times not enough hours to complete tasks - ever changing direction
