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.

Other than the fact that the company has since gone bankrupt across Canada it was an enriching, challenging and above all fun place to work with great camaraderie!

Manager and assistant manager are horrible to work under. Even when you are producing sales and good customer service they have something to say. Managers on duty are little puppets that don't do much but micro manage everyone. Nice clientele and good products but highly overpriced. Lot of lifting and climbing 8 foot ladders to retrieve chairs etc. All managers seem to have some type of dis stain for part time employees. Obviously no managerial training with this company.

Everyone that I have met is extremely friendly. Everyone is more than willing to help out. A fun environment. Good management and easy to talk to. Best job I have had so far.

I worked at two Pier One locations, Ottawa and Ajax. While I found both locations very different in terms of work culture, it is a decent place to work, especially if you're a student.

In Ottawa, there were many difficulties with management as we underwent frequent managerial changes. So the direction top-down was not the greatest. The more tenured associate managers did help a lot to balance out the constant changes.


Also, there were no 15-minute breaks in an 8-hour shift. This is found very peculiar.
Points positifs
Pier One swag
Points négatifs
Long hours, lack of flexibility

Coming in 5-10 minutes before your shift, putting on your apron and name tag, signing in and checking the schedule to see which zone/section of the store you will be working, is how the shift starts. On busy days, many customers will approach you asking questions and for help. On slow days you have to work harder to achieve sales. There is usually a goal of $3,000-5,000 set for the day. I learned how to work better under pressure and how to make better conversation. Multitasking also improved and my ability to follow procedures and directions. Management is amazing, very flexible and concerned with the associates safety and success in the company. Co-workers are always willing to help, very friendly and kind. Hardest part of the job is finding furniture that customers are looking for in the store because of the constant display changes that occur by-weekly. The most enjoyable part is making conversation and learning about the customers needs and wants for their purchase.
Points positifs
friendly associates, friendly customers, safe and predicable workplace
Points négatifs
Short shifts, some heavy lifting
