    Application

    The process was fair. Interviewed with a store manager and human resource manager. The company select one of their long term store managers to do an interview and HR will do an extensive interview. The interview does not prepare you for the actual on the job experience. It only highlight the company core values.

    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took a week. I interviewed at Bed Bath & Beyond.

    Interview

    Just your standard retail interview. They would seriously hire anyone so there isn't a real need to be and expert, cashiering would help. I'd you have stocking experience then that will also help. They just take you in an office for about 20 minutes and then they walk you to the door and let you know when they will get back to you.
