    Application

    I applied online. I interviewed at Pier 1 Imports.

    Interview

    Got a call within a week about a job. Was asked standard questions about previous jobs, customer service and my biggest take away from my last job. After passing the phone interview, they asked me to come in the next day for an in person interview. During this portion, the manager and I acted out how I would approach, help and advise customers on various topics. I was asked to create an ideal sunroom featuring the furniture in the store and was asked to lead the manager around and tell him why I picked each one, and what they would add to the room individually.

    Application

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

    Interview

    I had a wonderful phone screen interview. The interviewer expressed their interest afterwords and was told I would hear back shortly. However, I was ghosted even after following up with HR. This was handled very unprofessionally considering the role. This was a major red flag and I am glad to have avoided it.

    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied in-person. The process took a week. I interviewed at Pier 1 Imports (Arlington, VA (US)) in October 2019.

    Interview

    I applied online. I waited a week with no response so I physically walked into the store and spoke to the manager. We scheduled an interview for a few days later. The interview was casual with questions about my past positions and customer service experience. I used the STAR method to answer the behavioral questions and did very well. Then the manager asked me to sell her a table. She called me back two days later with an offer.
