Marketing Interview

Marketing

I applied online and the process took 2 months - interviewed at Bed Bath & Beyond.

Interview Details – Human Resources contact was incredibly unprofessional, setting up 5 appointments with me and either never showing up or cancelling at the last minute. The hiring manager was 20 minutes late for the interview with not so much as an acknowledgement of her tardiness. I did not follow up after that - If I company is so discourteous before they hire you, I can't imagine how you're treated afterward.

Interview Question – None - the questions were standard lifts from a "how to interview" book.   Answer Question

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

Interview Details – Walked in there to give them my application and the manager automatically asked for an interview when I wasn't prepared with a resume. I walked in there with two buddies of mine, one of my buddies and I got hired. It was very easy and plain. Nothing to worry about.

I applied in-person - interviewed at Bed Bath & Beyond in October 2009.

Interview Details – Interviewing process was very casual at that time. Be prepared to "sell" an item.

Interview Question – Not sure if there was one at that time. Was more of just having a conversation with someone you just met.   Answer Question

Negotiation Details – at the time I hired in at part time, it was only my second job being that I spent 20+ years at first employer.. Did think to ask about pay increase, or oppertunity to advance. Was told by store manager that she wanted to promote me within, but then she had to transfer to different store.
