    I applied in-person. The process took 2 weeks. I interviewed at Pier 1 Imports (Raleigh, NC).

    Interview

    The interview was with the Store Manager and very informal. I applied in person by completing a paper application in the store. I believe they have moved to electronic in store applications now. Within a week I had an interview and was offered the position on the spot.

    Assistant Store Manager Interview

    Positive Experience
    Easy Interview

    Application

    The process took 5 days. I interviewed at Pier 1 Imports (Eugene, OR) in July 2011.

    Interview

    A simple, yet long interview that consisted of meeting other employees, 1 on 1 with the store manager and some role playing. Very nice people and a relaxed environment. The role playing consisted of a few basic scenarios: how would you coach an associate that is not offering the store credit card? what would you say to an associate that has repeatedly come to work out of dress code? Just be relaxed and prepared to role play! The pay seemed pretty low. around $14/hr with no overtime, however when you consider the overall volume of the store, it is on par with other retailers.

    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied through other source. The process took 3+ months. I interviewed at Pier 1 Imports in July 2013.

    Interview

    I had already worked for the company for two years when I applied for this posting. I interviewed twice, and never received a call back, even though I lived and worked locally and regularly communicated with the store manager. I never received a response to the messages I left, and only found out they had filled the position through word of mouth months later. Very unprofessional.

    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.

    Application

    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.

    Interview Questions

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