    Application Details

    I interviewed in-person. The process took 2 weeks - interviewed at Bath & Body Works in June 2014.

    Interview Details

    The interview was very easy. It was me and 4 other girls. The hiring manager was very cool maybe to cool. The interview lasted about 10-15 minutes. Easy questions. It was more personal questions than work ethic questions. If i could do it all over again I would just because it was a group interview and not a 1:1.

    Sales Associate Interview

    Application Details

    I interviewed in-person - interviewed at Bath & Body Works in July 2014.

    Interview Details

    I went in one day and asked for an application, filled it out and turned it in the next day. I got a call that same day for an interview several days later. It was a group interview with about five other people. She asked us simple questions and asked us to introduce ourselves, nothing too difficult. This was my very first interview ever and it was not too difficult or stressful. The manager that interviewed us was very bubbly and talkative. We only had an hour for our interview and because she did talk quite a bit (she was SO nice and welcoming!) we only had the opportunity to answer about three or four questions each. Make sure that if your interviewer is the same way, you make comments and agree often with him/her. I am still waiting to hear back if I got another one-on-one interview.

    Interview Questions
    • The most difficult of them all was to sell a product to your partner in front of the entire interview group. Other questions included describing a time when you gave/received exceptional customer service.   Answer Question

    Application Details

    I interviewed in-person. The process took a day - interviewed at Bath & Body Works in November 2013.

    Interview Details

    I gave my application to the hiring manager and made small talk with her the same day I got the interview. It was a night interview as well.

    It was supposed to be a group interview, but I was the only one who showed up. I arrived ten minutes early, but I had to wait about twenty minutes for the interview to actually start.

    The questions were fairly easy and expected. They were things like: What's your favorite scent and why? How did you settle a conflict at work or at school? Why did you apply for the job? Things like that.The mood was friendly and light. I thought it was great!

    Interview Details

    A friend referred my to the manager. I had a 5 minute interview before starting training. They just needed bodies so I don't think they really prepared for interviews. The managers were just happy to get people to work there and were very flexible with the hours.

    Sales Leader Interview

    Interview Details

    You can become a sales leader by being a external candidate or internal candidate depending on the experience. You will have a initial interview with the store manager, then a second interview usually over the phone with another store manager, and if you did good with them both you will have a 3rd face to face interview with the district manager. The store manager will be the one to decide if you will be offered the job or not, the district manager just adds their opinion about you.

    Interview Questions
    • Be very detailed on why you think you should be a sales leader how can you drive sales? what would you like to do differently to improve sales (if internal candidate)?   Answer Question

    Application Details

    I interviewed through other source. The process took 5 days - interviewed at Bath & Body Works.

    Interview Details

    What I expected. Phone first, then District Manager. Questions were basic and focused on customer service and problem solving. Not too long, although the process now involves an additional store manager interviewing you or a "panel" interview.
