    Assistant Store Manager Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Eugene, OR
    No Offer
    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.
