I'm incredibly excited about my new job as an Associate at Pier 1 Imports.
It seems like it was fate that I got this job. I had applied at a different location, but, apparently, the manager (who will be moving to the location that I will be working at to become a manager there) I talked to liked me so much that she set me up to interview and work at this location. This location is definitely better for me, seeing as it is closer to where I live.
I have had a problem in the past finding jobs that did not work very well with my full-time student school schedule. I had jobs that wanted me to work way more hours than I could (even after I had let my managers know ahead of time that I could not work that many hours), jobs where my managers would call me in to work for less than a hour, and jobs that turned out to have completely random schedules. I was starting to feel hopeless about finding a job and, more importantly, finding a job that would fit me and my schedule. However, at Pier 1 Imports, part-time employees work four hours shifts and can work a minimum of 12 hours a week. This is an absolutely perfect fit for where I am at in my life right now.
I believe that this will be an invigorating place to work, and I mean, come on, I'm a girl, and there are lots of pretty items at Pier 1. Oh, and did I mention the 25-35% employee discount? Can you say heavennnnn?
I had my orientation today, and I start training on Sunday. I can't wait to see what is in store for me for my future at Pier 1. (:
