I applied online and the process took 2 days - interviewed at Bed Bath & Beyond in January 2013.

Interview Details – I applied online and was called within 8 hours (the next morning)
I made an appointment, and arrived to meet with the interviewing manager, who was the Operations Manager. He was very cordial and friendly.

He asked me; what I thought customer service meant, if I thought the "customer was always right", what experience I had with another store that had gained my loyalty (ie: good service), what previous experience I had in retail (I was a cashier for two years prior) and why I had left my old job.

There were a total of two interviews, which they performed on the same visit, though I have heard other people may have to wait for their second interview.

Interview Question – It entailed what I felt my performance had been at my old job, and if there was anything I could have done to improve myself.   Answer Question

Negotiation Details – There was little to no negotiations, besides what position I wanted, and what hours I wanted to work.

I applied in-person and the process took a day - interviewed at Bed Bath & Beyond in September 2012.

Interview Details – I walked in and filled out an application at an unused register. I handed it in and expected to be told it'd be submitted, but they called up one of the managers to the front. The manager asked if I had time for an interview right then (luckily I make sure to dress nice even when submitting applications for just such cases!). He walked me over to the wedding registry office, so it was out of the way, but not in their back area. He talked to me about my previous experience, mentioned their companies values, and asked a bit about how I handled customer service. We discussed pay and schedule right then. I had listed my requested pay as $10/hr and he said they could do that. Job was offered and I accepted.

Interview Question – Standard interview questions.   Answer Question

Negotiation Details – They gave me my requested amount.

I applied online and the process took 1+ week - interviewed at Bed Bath & Beyond in July 2012.

Interview Details – So I applied online through snagajob on Saturday. I got a call back exactly 4 days later on Wednesday around 8:45pm asking me to come in for an interview the following day (Thursday) at 10am. *Bring a pen and dress business casual.*

So anyway I had my first interview with a very nice lady (everyone was so nice!). She asked me questions like "Why Bed Bath & Beyond?" "Describe a time you had to deal with a difficult customer." and some questions about my employment history (job titles, responsibilities, etc). Within the middle of the interview my phone rang and I was so scared but she reassured me that it was fine. In the end she said I should get a call back by the end of Friday if they were interested. Interview lasted about 20 minutes.

Instead, later on that day, around 7 or 8pm they called and asked me to come in for an interview the next day (Friday) at the same time (10am). I agreed and this time I met with the front end manager. I got there early, about 9:30, dressed in a black button down, black slacks and some black shoes. The front end manager came out and interviewed me early. The whole interview with him was cool. We was laughing and cracking jokes and stuff. It was actually more laid back than my first interview. But anyway he asked me things like "Describe a time that you received bad customer service." and "Why Bed Bath & Beyond?" again. Just be bubbly and friendly the whole time. This interview lasted about 15 minutes. Towards the end he said he wanted to offer me a position and told me the salary based on my previous experience. I negotiated it to a lil bit more and I was satisfied with that. I really negotiated just to negotiate lol but nonetheless, I start my two week orientation on Monday!

Oh and remember to have some questions ready to ask at the end of the interview!!

Interview Questions

Negotiation Details – Always try to negotiate!! I asked if my salary was negotiable and he went to check and came back with a better offer. I was happy with the first one but I negotiated anyway. Even if they say no it never hurts to ask.

I applied in-person and the process took 3 weeks - interviewed at Bed Bath & Beyond in August 2009.

Interview Details – when first applying for bed bath and beyond i was unsure of what to think, simply keeping eye contact in mind. first walking into the building and being escorted into the managers office; for my first interview. I had previously spoke with the manager on duty; before hand, so they were very well informeed i was going to be walking in as scheduled. the first questioned asked was if i knew anything about the company which further lead into detail about when the company started and how much it has grown. not overwhelming me but leading to beging asking of my work experiance and what i had to offer to the comany. it was very well informed that customer service was the main key to bed bath and beyond, especially because i was applying as a cashier. it was said cashiers were the make or break of a customer. once speaking one on one with the manager for no more than 20 mins they had said they would give my application another look and pass it on to a further manager and discuss what they had availible and give me a call. with that i called about a week after and was called in for a second interview; carried the same process, and was successful in attending orientation no more than two weeks after.

Interview Question – how much do you know about the companies history?   View Answer

The process took 2 weeks - interviewed at Bed Bath & Beyond in June 2011.

Interview Details – I got interviewed to work here and the interview was pretty simple very easy, questions like "why do you want to work here" "what made you think that being a cashier was the right position for you?" and also i had to pretend to sell an item to a customer lol. The guy was really nice... but it took him 2 weeks to call me back.. and he doesn't seem that friendly but whatever! im getting paid over 8.00$ for my first job.. so thats pretty good. im not sure about how the training is going to be or anything but well see i guess.

Interview Question – Why do you want to work here?   View Answer

Negotiation Details – I did not negotiate.. because there are many people that are unemployed nowadays.. so he would definitly rather just pick someone else then pay you more...
