    I have been working at Pier 1 Imports full-time for more than 10 years

    Pros

    Pier 1 has an excellent work/life balance. The culture the company fostered contributed to this. The location in downtown Fort Worth helped with the laid back atmosphere. The managers I had/have and all my coworkers were excellent.

    Cons

    Unfortunately poor decisions by previous management, along with the current pandemic, caused the demise of this company.

    I worked at Pier 1 Imports full-time for more than a year

    Pros

    I worked with amazing people. My boss was truly the best person I could have asked for to learn from. I can honestly say we are friends and I respect her tremendously.

    Cons

    Too many cooks in the kitchen and not enough fresh ideas from the younger demographic. I mean, how many hand-beaded table runners can one place sell each season? The brand was stale and COVID-19 just put that last nail int he coffin. I'm sorry to see Pier 1 go.
