    I worked at Pier 1 Imports part-time for more than 5 years

    Pros

    They offer bonuses for meeting your sales goals. They really value every employee and treat you fairly. Very relaxed, fun environment.

    Cons

    Sometimes the work load expected is a bit much when you have to balance payroll...yet you're still expected to get everything done.

    Seasonal Sales Associate Interview

    Application Details

    I applied online. The process took 2 days - interviewed at Pier 1 Imports in September 2014.

    Interview Details

    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.
