    I have been working at Pier 1 Imports part-time (more than 3 years)

    Pros

    P1 is a low key, part time job that often feels like you are just talking to friends who happen to be customers.

    Cons

    There are always a list of things that we are to include in our conversations with customers: first and foremost, the Pier 1 rewards credit card; during the holidays UNICEF cards; add-on sales and oh yeah, get their phone numbers, email addresses and full names at the register. It's alot to ask and the customers are reluctant.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Reward the Managers and Sales Leaders. They seem a bit beaten down. It is retail, after all.

    Application Details

    I applied online. The process took 5 daysinterviewed at Pier 1 Imports.

    Interview Details

    I got a call and went into an interview. It was one on one right in a section in the store. It wasn't as horrible as I was worried it would be. She was nice and asked me details about my former job. She asked if I knew how to sell and made me sell a few items to her and said it was good. Also, she had a set list of questions to ask me and was picking a few. In the end, she seemed really enthusiastic and it was a pretty good interview. She was very detailed and called my references but still I never got a call back.
