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!

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