    Application Details

    I applied in-person. The process took 2 months - interviewed at Bath & Body Works in March 2011.

    Interview Details

    Interviewing process is done in a group setting where each person takes a turn answering their question. In someways, it's a set up to see who can out-do the others around them and pick the one person out of the group who they think is qualified for the job. Actually getting hired depends on when they decide to call you back. I didn't hear from them for two months.

    Interview Details

    Walk-in your application if you can. Resume is appreciated as well. I walked in my application to a manager and was asked to interview that day for later that week. The interview itself was a little more intense than other retail jobs I have had- alot of sales scenario based questions.

    Sales Associate/Cashier Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate  in  Memphis, TN
    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Memphis, TN
    Application Details

    I applied online. The process took 1 week - interviewed at Bath & Body Works in September 2010.

    Interview Details

    Set up personal interview and was hired on the spot. Having to know how friendly to be without being sugary sweet, which can turn some people off completely. I like to try and make a connection to the interviewer, and then build upon that. I like to also get to know a bit about the person who is interviewing me as well. Helps to break the ice and seem like you are both on an equal playing field versus feeling intimidated by not knowing what the person who is doing the interview is thinking. Always try to find something similar in common to touch on. Helps to feel a bond if you will with the other person.

    Application Details

    I applied in-person. The process took 3 days - interviewed at Bath & Body Works.

    Interview Details

    While I understand the need for group interviews, especially at holiday time, I did not appreciate not being told in advance that I would be participating in one. I was under the impression that since I have spent many years as a manager I would be given an individual interview. The worst part was that I am an adult with many years experience and I was grouped with approximately ten girls who had not yet graduated high school and was virtually ignored, in spite of my trying to make the best of it and participate anyway.

    Interview Questions
    • There were no difficult questions. This was a group interview for sales positions. They seemed more interested in filling the store with bodies to cover the sales floor than getting to know anyone individually, or even if they had any ability to learn the products or upsell or anything.   Answer Question
