    The manager instructed us to walk around the store and find our favorite product because we were going to do a "show and tell" later. We went into the back and watched a video that highlighted what an excellent sales associate is like and how they interact with the customers.

    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied online – interviewed at Bath & Body Works.

    Interview

    Awful. Had to go through three different managers and a DM before even finding out if I was qualified for the job. It was a joke. Just tell someone during the first interview if you're in in interested.

    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied in-person. The process took 1+ weekinterviewed at Bath & Body Works (Pittsburgh, PA) in June 2015.

    Interview

    Super easy; manager was laid back and friendly. Overall it was one of the easiest interviews I have had but I think my resume helped to make the interview flow which entail made it easier. It was short and the manager got straight to the point with her questions. She answered all of my questions and never rushed me or the interview as a whole.

    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 1 dayinterviewed at Bath & Body Works (Woodbridge, NJ) in June 2015.

    Interview

    The interview went very smoothly, and the manager I interviewed with was very kind, and wasn't intimidating. I arrived a few minutes early, and the questioning process only took about 10 or 15 minutes max. This interview was one of the most relaxed, simplistic, and straight-to-the-point that I've ever experienced; and for that I am thankful. You should come to this interview dressed as casual, or dressy-casual.

    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied in-person. The process took 3 daysinterviewed at Bath & Body Works (Green Bay, WI) in June 2015.

    Interview

    My process was a little bit different than most peoples. Basically I was just shopping as a customer when I started talking to one of the regional managers and she told me to apply. I filled out the application and handed it to her right there. They asked me a few questions on the spot and then set up an actual interview on a different date. I dressed business casual and she just asked me a few questions but I could see that she already had a schedule for me written down. The managers were amazing and she made sure that I knew that this job isn't for someone who wants to pay their bills with it. I loved the honesty and everyone that I met there has been very kind so far!

    I applied in-person. The process took 4 daysinterviewed at Bath & Body Works.

    Interview

    It was pretty simple. I met with the manager in the back of the store. If you don't like tight spaces, this job is not for you. The manager explained the job, what they were looking for and so on. She wanted to know my availability. She stressed the fact that the job was not a bill paying one since the schedule wasn't regular.

    Quick & easy interview. I was given the wrong time for interview so I ended up being late and interviewed individually instead of in a group setting. I was asked to come in for training soon after.
