    Interview Details

    I didn't get an interview. But basically you fill out an application,do the questionnaire. Then you would have an interview with the store manager, followed by an interview with the district manager. Once you get approved it takes about 2 weeks to start. This is based on seeing many people who go through the process.

    Interview Details

    You submit a paper application and then the manager called me in for an interview. The interview was very informal and I flt comfortable. She basically asked me the basics Tell me about yourself, What are your strengths and weaknesses, Tell me about a time you had a conflict with a coworker, are you comfortable piercing ears. . . ect. Then about a week later I was scheduled a phone interview with the district manager, it was more conversational than an interview but she did probe to see how long I wanted to be employed they want longevity.

    Interview Details

    I filled out an application online and than I filled out a questionnaire. Within 24 hours I got a phone call with the district manager and had a quick phone interview. We set up a time to meet. My interview in person was great. She asked about my experience and then asked me to sell her the bracelet she was wearing. She wanted to see if i knew how to sell something. Afterwards I went home and got a phone call from her saying to be available to speak to her boss in a hour. I had a quick easy phone call with her boss. It was just some basic questions and everything felt very positive. i hung up with her and got an immediate phone call back from the district manager saying I was hired.

    Application Details

    I applied in-person. The process took 2 weeksinterviewed at Piercing Pagoda in October 2013.

    Interview Details

    First you have to go to the kiosk in person and get a hard copy of the job application. Then you fill out the application either at the kiosk or at home. Once you finish filling out the application you have to complete an online survey. The online survey consist of questions that revolve around drug use and job performance. When you finish the survey you wait to hear from either from the district manager, the store manager, or the assistant manager. They'll set up an interview with you. How the interview goes depends on how lazy the interviewer is. For example my interview I walked in, gave the manager my job application and resume, and she hired me on the spot. At another location a friend of mine went to the interview and was asked to sell a piece of merchandise to the manager.

    Application Details

    I applied through an employee referral. The process took a weekinterviewed at Piercing Pagoda in October 2012.

    Interview Details

    I was referred by a friend who already worked there. I was interviewed by the store manager in person on location and then was given a code to take an online personality test. I was then interviewed by the regional manager in person about a week later. She repeatedly asked me if I had any criminal history which was insulting after the second inquiry. I believe they are having an issue with this seeing as they ask you three times.
