    Application

    I applied online. The process took 2 days. I interviewed at Pier 1 Imports (Brandon, FL) in September 2014.

    Interview

    I applied online for a seasonal sales associate position and was called about 2-3 days later. They asked me to come to a group interview and I accepted. The interview was very relaxed. Once you arrive, they have you look around the store until everyone arrives. In my situation, the assistant store manager gathered us into the outdoor seating section and had the interview in the middle of the store! Once all the questions were done, he asked us to come back the next day for a role-playing session with the store manager.

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 4+ weeks. I interviewed at Pier 1 Imports (Lawrence, KS) in October 2013.

    Interview

    The interview was a group interview. It was not hard and pretty casual. The manager and assistant manager asked us questions as a group then took us around to different sections of the store. We went over things in her book and she showed us how to sell an object and then wanted each of us to give an example of how we would do it.

    Application

    I applied in-person. The process took 1 day. I interviewed at Pier 1 Imports in October 2009.

    Interview

    It really wasnt an interview. It was more of a quick meeting with the Store Manager so he could size me up, make fun of my British accent and inform me that seasonal means temporary. Well of course seasonal means temporary, I am educated. Forgive me for having an accent, its simply how and where I grew up. The best part was when he said he expected seasonal associates to be just as customer service saavy as the other associates. Well, if that means that the customers do not get greeted, are not offered any assistance, and mostly ignored (as his associates do), then I can easily do that job.
