    Retail Store Manager Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate
    Anonymous Interview Candidate
    Application Details

    I applied online – interviewed at Bath & Body Works.

    Interview Details

    Multiple phone and in person interviews that took several weeks. Started with three calls then four in person. They were accommodating with interviewing destinations. Looking back, however, the role description given in the process is no were close to what is actual your role. I learned to do more research on any role after my experience with Bath&Body.

    Sales Associate Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate
    Anonymous Interview Candidate
    Application Details

    I applied in-person. The process took a weekinterviewed at Bath & Body Works.

    Interview Details

    I was contacted by the manager directly to attend a group interview. The manager took us to the stock room, sat us down in a semi-circle and had a round-robin-style interview session. We were asked questions about how we would handle specific types of sales (especially to disinterested customers). The interview was very comfortable and the manager was great at setting everyone at ease.

    After the interview, I was later contacted to come in for training. Some of my training included watching safety videos and learning about proper stock room techniques. I also had access to an enormous amount of literature concerning better sales techniques, product descriptions, and company history.

    Application Details

    I applied in-person. The process took 2 daysinterviewed at Bath & Body Works.

    Interview Details

    I submitted my application in person and got called in two days later for an interview with the assistant manager. The interview was pretty easy. Just make sure to research the company values beforehand and be somewhat familiar with the product. Emphasize in the interview how important customer service is, how you love working with a team in an upbeat, fast-paced environment, and how hard you work.

    • I was asked to pick out my favorite lotion in the store and "demo" the product.   View Answer
    Negotiation Details
    They said that they would like to hire me, and they told me a day that they would start training me. They said they'd start me at minimum wage, $9/hr - but when I got my first paycheck I was happily surprised to see I was actually started at $9.10/hr
