Advice to Management
Management probably does not need my advice based on the fact that they have reached the level of Management.
I applied online. I interviewed at Pier 1 Imports (Federal Way, WA).
I arrived to the interview and was surprised to see that I would be interviewing with a 62 year old woman, Im 18. From the beggining I felt ignored and disregarded. The 2 people interviewing us would not make eye contact with me, but were fully engaged with the other woman interviewing. One of the questions was "tell us something that we cant read on your resume." While I was talking, I watched the interviewer write "boring." Overall the questions were strangely worded and the interview was rushed. I was so dissapointed because Ive loved Pier1 since I was a kid, and have never experienced anything other than great customer service. Maybe it was just this location, but it was definitely the worst interview experience Ive ever had.
Every year our associates gather together for the United Way Day of Action, and this year we visited ACH Child and Family Services, an organization dedicated to helping children, youth and families in our community overcome life’s challenges. We decorated several common areas, gardened, cleaned, and in true Pier 1 fashion, had a little fun along the way!
