    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 5 daysinterviewed at Bed Bath & Beyond.

    Interview

    First interview was with the HR manager for the district. Second interview was with the District manager. Conversations center on your ability to think on your feet, and guest service. They are a very decentralized company, managers are expected to make decisions on there own using there experience.

    I applied online – interviewed at Bed Bath & Beyond.

    Interview

    So I was really excited to go on this interview with Bed Bath & Beyond. I completely dedicated a work day of 8 hours of 7 people interviewing me. After I completed the interviews, HR said they will let me know within a week. He ensured me that he will contact me regardless of the outcome and provide me feedback. After 2 weeks I had sent a follow up email, no answer. 3 more days I had called and left a message. (while I can see the actual HR recruiter active on linked in- I know he is clearly near a computer.)

    Overall- I felt like they were extremely disrespectful and unprofessional. 1 star

    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied through an employee referral. The process took 2 weeksinterviewed at Bed Bath & Beyond.

    Interview

    I had to literally do 3 interviews for an eight dollar per hour starting position for the job. I should have known the position's work would far exceed what was actually compensated for based on the number of interviews I went through. It's ok as starting job but moving up in the company is sheer luck.

    Interview Questions

    • My most unexpected question was what would I say to the customer who wanted to buy a horse.   1 Answer

    Negotiation

    $8.00 is the most they will start out at. I requested $7.75 but my reference was so good that they started me out at 8 no questions asked.

    Difficult Interview

    Application

    I applied through other source. The process took 6+ monthsinterviewed at Bed Bath & Beyond (Union, NJ).

    Interview

    Very long and drawn out. Took about two months from first phone call to hear back. Then it took another two months to get an in person interview. But once they decided I was given one weeks notice of the date Both in person interviews were all day and nobody thought to offer lunch.

    Interview Questions

    • Was I willing to work a regular eight hour day?   1 Answer

    Reasons for Declining

    Get everything up front and in writing. everything was great until the offer. At that point they really nickled and dimed me. No bonus structure but some stock that nobody could really explain. Relocation package was not good. Moving would have cost me money. From talking to potential peers I got the impression that they micromanage everything from work hours to lunch items.

    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied online – interviewed at Bed Bath & Beyond (Port Chester, NY) in November 2014.

    Interview

    I had a interview with a very nice, short man. It went well, he set me up with a second interview with another manager at the store for another day. I think it was about three days away. When I came to the second interview I was only there for like two minutes. He asked me three questions while flipping threw papers on his desk and sent me on my way. I don't know what I did wrong...
