    Part Time Sales AssociTim Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Salinas, CA
    Accepted Offer
    Neutral Experience
    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied in-person. The process took 2 weeksinterviewed at Bed Bath & Beyond (Salinas, CA) in August 2011.

    Interview

    Interview was not very intensive, I dont feel like they have a prepared set of questions. They do actually check your references though and will not hire without them. Actual hiring process after being offered job is long and monotonous. 4+ hours of paperwork, job review and training videos, followed by 20+ more training hours on floor.

    Application

    I applied in-person. The process took 1 dayinterviewed at Bed Bath & Beyond in January 2011.

    Interview

    Basically the operations manager will begin the interview, typically in the bridal-consultant room on the sales floor. It supposed to give a more comfortable atmosphere and awareness of what your actually getting into. Dress for success even though working there rarely will you ever have that opportunity again. Smile. Customer service is their core value, smile and act like you can carry on a happy face for an entire shift.

    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online – interviewed at Bed Bath & Beyond (Atlanta, GA) in May 2013.

    Interview

    You might have to drive to a store not close to you to meet with an HR Rep. Then you will wait about 30-45 minutes before being seen. After the first interview you may drive to a different store a week later and meet with a DM. And again you will wait about 30 mins before being seen. If your salary requirements are high you will have a third interview with a Senior DM and will drive to another store unless you are lucky enough to be where they both are at a store.
