    Application

    I applied in-person – interviewed at Pier 1 Imports.

    Interview

    Went in and filled out the application at the store. Was called the following day for an interview, came in that next day for the interview. This was my first job so I had no experience. I was told to base everything off of my educational experience. They asked the normal interview questi After the interview view I received a call the next day and started that next week.

    Application

    I applied online – interviewed at Pier 1 Imports.

    Interview

    Interview was pretty easy and straightforward. There was another girl there so we ended up having our interview together and both got hired on the spot. Questions were mostly based on past retail experiences and she asked us how we would handle scenario questions. She said that Pier 1 likes to do role play questions but she decided not to ask us those because she personally didn't think they were effective.

    The manager was pretty rude and seemed entirely disinterested in actually holding an interview. The staff was really unfriendly too, weren't willing to answer questions

    Application

    I applied online. The process took a weekinterviewed at Pier 1 Imports (East Lansing, MI) in February 2015.

    Interview

    I arrived early and the manager told me to take a look around. Then she came over and she pulled some chairs from the display and we sat in the store. No one was in the store so I thought it was less awkward. It was laid back and pretty easy. She asked general customer service questions and my background and what I am currently doing.
