Interview Details – I applied in-person and received a phone call to schedule an interview a few days after handing in my application. When I arrived at the store for my job interview, I was told a group interview was being held and that I had to wait for the 3 other applicants to arrive. The group interview was held outside of the store (inside the mall) and away from the entrance. It was casual -- shoppers were walking by, we could speak up whenever we were ready to answer the questions, etc. The first few questions were the usuals... are you a customer at Bath and Body Works? are you familiar with our products? why do you want to work here? do you know the layout of our store? what's your strength? what's your weakness? If we called your ex-boss, what do you think they would say about your performance at that job? At the very end of the interview, we were asked to pick a product from the store and give a sales pitch about that product to the interviewer---talk about the fragrance notes (top,middle, and heart), the ingredients and their benefits (moisturizing shea, exfoliating sea salt, relaxing essential oils, etc), a personal testimony about your experience using the product (were you complimented on how nice it smelled on you? did it make your skin glow, or feel refreshed?), how to combine the product with other products from the BBW line, etc.

I applied online and the process took 3 days - interviewed at Bath & Body Works in November 2013.
Interview Details –
I recently applied for a Manager's position.
I was called me within 2 days; an appointment was made with the recruiter.
That day, the recruiter called late. She also had not yet read my resume.
She seemed interested; excited that I have had multi-unit experience, as well as some DM training.
We ended with her explaining that they had several openings, but a manager was relocating from another area to my state, and would have first choice.
This seemed reasonable to me.
The recruiter promised to follow-up in two days, when she expected to finalize the other manager's plans.
A week later, no call.
Interview Question – All were basic questions. We were a little hindered by the fact that she had not read my resume prior to the call. Answer Question
Very Easy Interview
I applied in-person and the process took 2 days - interviewed at Bath & Body Works in November 2013.
Interview Details – I went in, asked for an application, filled it out and was scheduled for an interview the next day. The interview was with the store manager and the CSL (Customer Sales Lead). There was another girl being interviewed with me. There was only one interview, and I got the call about an hour later that I was hired. The other girl got hired too. It's the worst place in the world to work though, so I would highly recommend trying ANYWHERE else. :)
Interview Question – Tell me about a time that you had a conflict with a friend, and how you resolved it. Answer Question
Negotiation Details – There was no negotiation. They just told me I had the job and that it was minimum wage pay, which is 7.78 in Colorado. If you get an offer, I would suggest declining. There are much better opportunities, and they have only given me 10 shifts in the 2 1/2 months I've worked there, so you will not make any money.

Interview Details –
I filled out and turned in an application to an associate. I followed up with my application at the end of the week 5 days later with a phone call. After following-up and because I followed-up, I was offered to be added to the group interview taking place that same day.
(So I highly recommend following up with a call if you haven't received one)
Group Interview consisted of: 3 of us. We were interviewed outside, wasn't hard at all. Questions like: Tell us a time you went above and beyond in Customer Service. Tell us a time you received great/excellent customer service from BBW (Bath&BodyW.). Favorite Product.
Another thing to note, they are very big on "Customer Service"!!
After my interview, I didn't get a call-back until around 2 Weeks later.

Interview Details – I applied to Bath and Works on a Friday then received a call for an interview on Monday. The interview was scheduled for the next day. It lasted about 15 minutes. First the manager asked some general questions, e.g., tell me about yourself, then she had me watch videos on typical sales associate and customer interactions. I had to comment on each video: what I would do the same and what I would do differently. After that, I asked the manager questions about the job which concluded the interview. I was called several hours later with a job offer.
