Application

I applied online. I interviewed at Bed Bath & Beyond (New York, NY) in July 2015.

Interview

They called me one business day after I had submitted my application, scheduled me for an interview two days later for 11:30. I got there early (11:00) and had to fill out another application. There were many other applicants waiting as well, I finally got my interview at 1:30!! The HR manager finally calls me in to do the interview. It was okay,I think he was looking for someone who had nothing to do with their life and could work any shift...I however informed him that I did have another part time job but I would definitely put them as main priority and work around their schedule. I don't know if I'll get a call back though. Oh well, nothing tried nothing gained right?

    Application

    I applied in-person. I interviewed at Bed Bath & Beyond (Iselin, NJ) in June 2013.

    Interview

    Very simple. You have an automatic interview the moment you fill out the application. But than you have to wait days sometimes weeks to get the other interviews over with. There are three in total. Each interview is a different manager but neither are more important than the other. The ask simple questions, like "why do you want to work here", you answer, you get hired. By the way, scheduling for them is like dealing with satan.

    Negotiation

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 2 days. I interviewed at Bed Bath & Beyond (San Antonio, TX) in January 2013.

    Interview

    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 Questions

    • 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

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

    Application

    I applied in-person. The process took 1 day. I interviewed at Bed Bath & Beyond (Austin, TX) in September 2012.

    Interview

    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.

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 1+ week. I interviewed at Bed Bath & Beyond (New York, NY) in July 2012.

    Interview

    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

    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.
