Sales Associate/Bridal Consultant Interview

Sales Associate/Bridal Consultant
Culver City, CA

I applied in-person and the process took 2 weeks - interviewed 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.

Interview Question – How long I planned to work for them   Answer Question

Sales Associate/Bridal Consultant

I applied in-person and the process took 1 week - interviewed at Bed Bath & Beyond.

Interview Details – The interview was done entirely in-store. I had to fill out a paper application and then make an appointment for an interview. I spoke with two managers. They asked basic questions about my interest in the company and customer service, and my willingness and ability to perform daily duties like climbing ladders, being on my feet, etc. I received an offer within a week.

Interview Question – Describe a time you went out of your way to help someone.   Answer Question

Negotiation Details – I was given what I thought was a fair offer. I later found out that they are very willing to negotiate, especially if you have a competitive offer from another retailer.

Sales Associate/Bridal Consultant Interview

Sales Associate/Bridal Consultant
Papillion, NE

I applied in-person and the process took 4 days - interviewed at Bed Bath & Beyond in May 2009.

Interview Details – Obtained application at customer service while collecting mass applications from stores inside nearby shopping center. Was informed by customer service associate of company's practice of performing short, preliminary immediate interview with applicant when submitting application. Appreciated this warning/explanation as in my personal opinion wasn't dressed for any kind of interview--I was simply stopping to obtain an application. Ensured I looked professional when I returned to submit my application. For immediate, preliminary interview, interviewed with manager on duty at the time & was scheduled to return at a later time & date to interview with the store manager. Interviewed with the store manager for duration of time I'm unable to recall (occurred 4 yrs. ago) & was informed I would be hired per positive results on background check.

Interview Question – I was asked about my comfort level of being on ladders/heights.   Answer Question

Sales Associate/Bridal Consultant

I applied in-person and the process took a day - interviewed at Bed Bath & Beyond.

Interview Details – Picked up a paper application and returned it on a separate day. Had what was called an "on the spot" interview. (When I returned the application they called a manager immediately to do the interview. I was surprised and had not dressed as well as I would have if I had been expecting to be seen by someone.) They asked a few questions about my previous experience, we negotiated pay and hours, and I was asked to start the next day.

Interview Question – None of the questions were detailed or tricky. They seemed to be looking to see who I was as a person (ability to communicate, straightforwardness, poise, etc.)   Answer Question
