Sales Associate Interview

Application Details

I applied online – interviewed at Pier 1 Imports in April 2014.

Interview Details

Applied online and thought the process was quite long and detailed for a position as simple as sales associate. I received a call a few days later asking for an interview. I came into the store and had a great time meeting the store manager. She was very friendly and welcoming. The interview questions seemed to fit the position much more than the requirements for the online application did. At the end of the interview, she told me on the spot that they'd like to hire me. It was very streamlined and stress free.
