    Assistant Planner Interview

    Interview Details

    I went on one interview that lasted 3.5 hours. I met with five different people from the planning department. Three out of five spoke to me in a condescending tone and were extremely chauvinistic. Even if I got the job offer, I would have thought twice about taking the position. It was not a very welcoming atmosphere for women.

    I was asked my availability and told that I would have to be interviewed by a second manager and I should be hearing from them in the next couple of days to schedule.

    Interview Details

    Took a few weeks but their decision was quick. I started with an online application. I waited about 2 weeks then received and email that they wanted to set up a phone interview. The phone interview went well but most questions were about my knowledge of the company. They got back to me quick with a denial via email.

    Interview Details

    Visited a local BB&B for the first time to buy some kitchenware, and saw a stack of applications at the front entrance. Had been thinking of getting a part-job, preferably overnight hours. The whole store is a mess so I figured it wouldn't have terribly crazy standards and a time-consuming hiring process like at Target. I filled out the two-page application (they were xerox'ed copies) in my car in the parking lot. Got a call about one week later to come in for an interview Friday afternoon of that week. Arrived that day and waited 15 minutes on the middle of the floor, until the manager came out and took me upstairs -- yes, upstairs along a tiny staircase in the corner of the warehouse -- to where his "office" was. And what an office it was. It looked like it had hurricane had hit it. I sensed the shambolic environment, which surprised me for a brand like BB&B. It was worse than someplace I'd expect like K-Mart. The manager was cordial, asked me the basic rudimentary questions, and 15 minutes later it was all over and I left his warzone -- I mean, office.

    I applied in-person. The process took 2 weeksinterviewed at Bed Bath & Beyond.

    Interview Details

    It was short and simple. They weren't all that engaging and gave no indication of whether or not my answers suited their needs. It was a pleasant interview, but they gave no information about the company. Seeing as they don't advertise anything, it's hard to get a clear picture of the objective of the company.

    General Manager Interview

    Application Details

    I applied online. The process took 2+ monthsinterviewed at Bed Bath & Beyond.

    Interview Details

    Was invited to job fair by regional HR and was interviewed by HR and District Manager at job fair. Was asked to meet for a follow up interview with another District manager about a week later. After that, the HR manager asked for me to meet with the Regional HR Manager for yet another interview about a week later. THen, asked to meet and interview with Regional President. All interviews went extremely well, I was in constant contact with HR rep, but after being told by RP that I would hear something within two days, I was put off over and over again, passed up another job opportunity and after over 2 weeks, I was told they had decided not to bring on any new manager's at this time.
    The whole process was unprofessional and much work on my part with minimal to no follow up on their end. Never met a deadline they set and very much led me on thinking I had the job and was simply meeting requirements of meeting with layers of management for interviews. The process took nearly 2 months.

    Application Details

    I applied online. The process took 2 weeksinterviewed at Bed Bath & Beyond in April 2014.

    Interview Details

    I applied on snagajob.com and heard back within two weeks. I was called for an interview, went in two days later, he asked me to show up early to fill out a paper application. Then a manager met with me, we talked for about 15minutes about my previous positions and what this position would entail. Then he told me that he would get back to me when the store manager was available to interview me. The few questions he asked were normal, like why do you want to work here, what did you do at (a previous job), and if I had any questions for him.

    interview was really easy, no super hard questions, no drug test, they mainly only cared about how i felt with climbing ladders which i was kinda scared at first but within a week it was not a big deal. they asked where i went to school, what i did on weekends, and wanted me to assure them i was reliable and honest. i had a second interview immediately after with the senior manager and she just explained my duties and what i was expected to do. i started within the following 2 weeks.
