Easy Interview

Application

I applied online. The process took 2 days. I interviewed at Pier 1 Imports.

Interview

you have to apply online & take a test (30 minutes). you have to do it on a computer. it won't work on a phone.

if you pass that, they will email you for an interview. store interviews are done by the store manager. i think i applied on a thursday and received the interview email request on saturday. i interviewed on tuesday & was offered a job on the spot.

    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online. I interviewed at Pier 1 Imports (Federal Way, WA).

    Interview

    I arrived to the interview and was surprised to see that I would be interviewing with a 62 year old woman, Im 18. From the beggining I felt ignored and disregarded. The 2 people interviewing us would not make eye contact with me, but were fully engaged with the other woman interviewing. One of the questions was "tell us something that we cant read on your resume." While I was talking, I watched the interviewer write "boring." Overall the questions were strangely worded and the interview was rushed. I was so dissapointed because Ive loved Pier1 since I was a kid, and have never experienced anything other than great customer service. Maybe it was just this location, but it was definitely the worst interview experience Ive ever had.

    I applied online. I interviewed at Pier 1 Imports (Waco, TX).

    Interview

    Normal interview questions, not too creative or in depth. They usually set up interviews in groups, but most of the time only one person ends up showing up, and they basically get the offer a day later.

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 4 days. I interviewed at Pier 1 Imports (Las Vegas, NV) in March 2017.

    Interview

    I applied on a Friday night, got a call Monday morning and my interview was the next day on Tuesday. I walked into the store, walked around until the Manager was able to interview me, it was a few minutes after our scheduled time, but they had gotten a very large shipment. The manager apologized about making me wait, even though it wasn't more than 5 minutes. The interview itself took about 30 minutes, it was a really easy and really relaxed interview! Just be yourself!

    I applied online and I received a call the next day. I was in for an interview a couple of days after that. And got a call a day after the interview saying that wanted to hire me. The interview, in my opinion, had your standard interview questions. Overall, I would say the entire process, from start to finish, was easy and stress free.
