    Application Details

    I applied through a recruiter. The process took 4 daysinterviewed at Bath & Body Works.

    Interview Details

    I was recruited vis LinkedIn. The previous store manager had relocated and there was an obvious a rush on upper management's end to fill the position. The district manager set up a relaxed, relatively informal meet-and-greet type interview where we discussed my qualifications, responsibilities, salary, etc. I then had an obligatory phone interview with the regional manager and was offered the position within a day or two.

    The whole process was simple and stressless.

    Application Details

    I applied in-person – interviewed at Bath & Body Works.

    Interview Details

    The questions were fine, what made it nerve racking was the fact that it was a group interview. I was asked for a second interview but that's where my game was thrown off because the group was a little larger and got nervous. I would recommend this place only if your up for a group. I think I would have nailed it if it was one on one.

    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
    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.

    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.
