    Interview

    It was super easy! They talked to me one on one. We talked about normal things like why is sales so important? I dressed up in nice slacks and a tank with a sweater. The talk was incredibly casual and I felt very comfortable. The woman I talked to though did not actually work at that location.

    Application

    I interviewed at Pier 1 Imports (Las Vegas, NV) in July 2016.

    Interview

    The store manager interviewed me and would interrupt me after asking a question and me answering half way. She was really rude and didn't stop talking to let me answer questions. This was the worst interview I've had. I'm pretty sure as soon as I walked in she knew she wasn't going to give me the job because I was younger than all the current workers there. She also asked me what other places I was applying and if I'd gotten a call back which was really weird to ask.

    I was offered a lesser position then what I was originally interviewing for, which was okay because they topped me out with maximum associate pay. But it took me a few days to really decide I'd this company was worth the risk.

    Interview

    Very casual and calming. I felt relieved as soon as I sat down with the manager. It was more like a conversation rather than an interview. I was hired on the spot and paperwork was filled out only a couple days later. This is the best interview I've ever had.
