After submitting an application to a job, how long should I wait before contacting them again?
I applied to Pier 1 Imports today. After handing in my application the woman looked very interested as she quickly flipped through it, saying "You're available most mornings. That's wonderful! That's what we need" and she then closed the application and said "We'll be seeing you again shortly!" so it sounds to me as if I have a really good chance. But in case I don't hear from them, when should I call back? A few days? A week? 3 weeks? What would you suggest?

About a week, avoiding weekends if possible (when they're often busy with customers and don't have time to deal with hiring). Sounds like you're going to be getting an interview though from what she's said though. Good luck with your interview!

I would go in in a few days to inquire and show that you are enthusiastic about the job. Don't wait for them to call you, persistence pays off!!!!
