Operations Manager Interview

Operations Manager
Wichita, KS

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

Interview Details – Everyone is hired in as an assistant manager with a certain career path in mind. Even if you are applying for a "Store Manager" position you start as an assistant and just go through a faster "training" period. The interview process is long. Be prepared for a month long interview process.

Interview Question – Are you relocatable?   View Answer

Negotiation Details – Feel free to negotiate. If you have the experience, they will pay for it.

Operations Manager Interview

Operations Manager
Louisville, KY

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

Interview Details – The culture is open and relaxed, but they will seriously challenge you in the interview to understand whether or not you will understand the job and represent them in a positive light. Professional references absolutely played a crucial role in my landing this job. They brought up several times what wonderful things my former employers said about me and it seemed to weigh heavily in my favor.

Interview Question – What do you find challenging or what do you need help with?   Answer Question

Negotiation Details – Yes, overshoot your price and let them bring you down a bit.
