Neutral Experience
Easy Interview

Application

I applied in-person. The process took 2 daysinterviewed at Bed Bath & Beyond (Lake Worth, TX) in June 2015.

Interview

I walked in with a filled out application and interviewed immediately. The manager was cheerful and eager to hear what I had to say. In the same visit I had a second interview with another manager who was just as pleasant as the first. They set an appointment for the next day with the store manager. The first two interviews went well, but the third interview was rushed and lacked genuineness. The manager was 20 minutes late to the appointment and seemed very distracted but did not offer any feedback. I was waiting with other candidates so the experience was a little off-putting. I was asked generic questions off of a crumpled paper and told that if I receive a call, he wants to proceed with the process, but if I don't that's a no.

    Application

    I applied in-person. The process took 2 weeksinterviewed at Bed Bath & Beyond (Culver City, CA).

    Interview

    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.

    Application

    I applied in-person. The process took 4 daysinterviewed at Bed Bath & Beyond (Papillion, NE) in May 2009.

    Interview

    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 Questions

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

    Application

    I applied in-person. The process took 1 dayinterviewed at Bed Bath & Beyond.

    Interview

    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 Questions

    • 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
