Application

I applied through an employee referral. The process took 2 days. I interviewed at Pier 1 Imports.

Interview

It was your typical interview. You go online and fill out the application for the job title your interested in. If you meet their qualifications then they will contact you by phone and setup a time to come into the store and interview. You typically will interview the first day with the assistant mananger, if you pass that interview then they will ask you to come back a second day and interview with the store mananger. At the second interview you may be asked to do some role playing on the salesfloor with a manager.

    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied in-person. The process took 4 days. I interviewed at Pier 1 Imports (Springfield, NJ) in November 2014.

    Interview

    The interview process is extremely easy. You apply in store and wait for a call back. You'll meet with the store manager and within that week, you get a call back with a job offer. Be careful working for this company though. All be it fun, management is usually gossipy and there is ZERO room for growth unless you get in good with your district manager. The store managers are not going to push your name to the higher ups...

    Interview Questions

    • Why do you want to work here at Pier 1 Imports and what skills do you bring to the team?   1 Answer

    Reasons for Declining

    They offered me a sales associate position instead of sales lead and I was over qualified to be just an associate.

    Application

    I applied in-person. The process took 2 days. I interviewed at Pier 1 Imports (Chicago, IL).

    Interview

    If you are advanced from an associate to a sales lead, expect a conversation with your store manager and regional. Likely your store manager is in a pinch and needs you and/or has recommended you. The interview should go well.

    Interview Questions

    • In what ways will you contribute to this company's sales target? How will you 'get behind' selling the credit card? Show me how you will take advantage of a coaching opportunity with one of your associates (usually a role play).   Answer Question
