Assistant Store Manager Interview

Anonymous Interview Candidate
No Offer
Negative Experience
Easy Interview

Application

I applied in-person. The process took 2 weeks. I interviewed at Pier 1 Imports in April 2016.

Interview

Unstructured and random. Likely due to my already holding the position at another store that was closing. There was an apparent lack of obligation to an already employed ASM which I have never expierenced in my retail management career and also contradicts the regular practice of moving ASMs to different stores every 12 months.

    Difficult Interview

    Application

    I applied online. I interviewed at Pier 1 Imports (Tustin, CA) in October 2015.

    Interview

    Applied online for a particular store. Got a call from a manager of another store who asked me questions over the phone and set up a same day 1:1 interview. I arrived 15 minutes early and he was not ready until about 10 minutes after the appointment time. I provided him with a copy of my resume since he didn't have one. He asked a lot of scripted detailed questions over the course of 90 minutes or so. He was like a robot with no personality--never cracked a smile--and took himself way too seriously. He talked so much I was trying really hard to stay awake. Then he told me I had a lot of experience, but low energy.

    He scheduled me for a second interview with another different store manager in the area. I declined to move forward with the hiring process.

    I applied online. I interviewed at Pier 1 Imports (Danvers, MA) in October 2014.

    Interview

    I submitted an online application and screening process. About 3 weeks later I received a voicemail from the Store Manager, who asked me to call back. I was further pre-screened for an interview by her current assistant. I came in for an interview about a week later. The whole process took about an hour and a half. She showed me around the store and each department. Then we conducted a formal q+a interview in her office.

    I applied online. The process took 4 days. I interviewed at Pier 1 Imports.

    Interview

    I met with a Store Manager who asked me a series of questions designed to determine my ability to diffuse workplace difficulties and customer service issues. How would I handle it if I saw a co-worker stealing for example. What would I do if a customer was dissatisfied with her service? Have I ever encountered an unhappy customer and what did I do to resolve the issue? I was then called back for a second interview with the District Manager who asked me similar questions and also took me on a tour of the shop, explaining what some of the terms were etc.

    • Have I ever had an employee steal before was a difficult question.   1 Answer

    Interview

    The questions are all from a script. Very basic questions that you would find at any other location. They didn't go very far off the script but seemed to like that I asked questions at the end of the interview.
