    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied through an employee referral. The process took 2 weeks. I interviewed at Pier 1 Imports (San Francisco, CA) in March 2016.

    Interview

    Very long process. Multiple phone interviews and face to face interviews with a Regional Manager, HR Manager and Zone VP. Back ground check was needed at the time of hire in some states. It seems to be the normal process for some positions .

    Interview Questions

    Negotiation

    I hate to fight to get a decent wage. I can't believe they still have salaried managers.

    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied through a recruiter. The process took 1+ week. I interviewed at Pier 1 Imports in November 2015.

    Interview

    Brief, the seem desperate to hire. District Manager was very relaxed and mostly talked at me the whole time, like he was selling the job to me. The store we were in was very cluttered and you could see the employees don't have a lot of relaxing space for their breaks.

    Application

    The process took 3 days. I interviewed at Pier 1 Imports in August 2011.

    Interview

    I found out there was a position open on Monster. I applied on line. I waited aproximately 3 or 4 days with no response. I called my local Pier 1, and asked for the DM's phone #, and called her. She was glad to hear form me, said I was on her list to call today. We talked shortly and scheduled a phone interview the next day. I then had a 1 on 1 interview in the store. Everything was looking really positive, but they ended up going with someone else.
