    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.

    11 Companies Hiring Just in Time for the Holiday Season With Awesome Perks

    Great news for those in the retail industry - according to Glassdoor's Local Pay Reports, the salaries for several key retail roles are on the rise, outpacing many other job titles and industries.

  • Every year our associates gather together for the United Way Day of Action, and this year we visited ACH Child and Family Services, an organization dedicated to helping children, youth and families in our community overcome life’s challenges. We decorated several common areas, gardened, cleaned, and in true Pier 1 fashion, had a little fun along the way!
