Associate/Cashier Interview

Anonymous Employee
Huntsville, AL

I applied in-person and the process took 5 days - interviewed at Bed Bath & Beyond in September 2013.

Interview Details – I went in to get an application, turned it in a couple days later and I had a small interview on the spot to go over my availability. She told me they do call backs on Fridays so they can call your references and past employers. The hiring manager actually called me on Saturday to schedule a formal interview a couple days later. The interview was very simple. He talked to me about what kind of training they do and how the store is ran. Then he asked me a couple of easy questions. After that he offered me the position right there!

Store Manager Interview

Store Manager
Brandon, FL

I applied online and the process took 4+ weeks - interviewed at Bed Bath & Beyond.

Interview Details – Applied on line and sent resume directy to store on July 17. HR called around 12pm on August 23 and left a message on my machine. The message said for me to call back before 3pm OR the following Monday to schedule an interview. I called first thing on Monday and was told all interview slots were full and they would have to call me back for another day & time! 7 days later...still havent heard from them. Moving on...not the kind of company I want to work for if they cant even follow through on interviews.

Department Manager Interview

Department Manager
Fresno, CA

I applied online - interviewed at Bed Bath & Beyond in August 2013.

Interview Details – Typical interview with the HR person. The questions were very pedestrian and did not invite for any real reflection from me.Job specifics such as number of hours, pay and benefits were only discussed after I broached the subject.

Interview Question – What would distinguish me from the other applicants? This question seldom allows for the interviewed person to showcase specific talents as it is too generic.   View Answer
