I applied online and the process took 1 week - interviewed at Bed Bath & Beyond in September 2013.

Interview Details – I applied online and was called in for an interview. I went in to the customer service desk where I waited for the interviewer. After waiting for awhile I was told I could wait at the wedding consultant desk, which is where I was interviewed when the interviewer was ready. It was a little noisy since we were out in the store and right by the cash registers and doors.

Interview Question – Think of something you have bought recently, and tell me why I should buy one.   Answer Question

I applied in-person and the process took 2 days - interviewed at Bed Bath & Beyond.

Interview Details – Just dropped off my resume and spoke to a manager that day. Structured interview with mock senarios dealing with customer service. Pleasant and not too difficult. Part-time hours are less accommodating so be sure to have a flexible schedule including weekends.

Interview Question – Why do you want to work here?   Answer Question

Reason for Declining – Needed better hours.

I applied in-person and the process took 4 days - interviewed at Bed Bath & Beyond in December 2013.

Interview Details – I received a phone call from a shift operating manager who said he wanted me to come in for an interview.
I went on the interview only to find another person there with me. The interview was good it only lasted for 30 minutes. I was hired for the job!

Interview Question – Most difficult questions was, "Could I work weekends."   View Answer

Negotiation Details – I was not able to negotiate a proper time to work. The retail industry requires that you work on weekends including Sundays!

Owings Mills, MD

I applied in-person and the process took 2 weeks - interviewed at Bed Bath & Beyond.

Interview Details – Visited a local BB&B for the first time to buy some kitchenware, and saw a stack of applications at the front entrance. Had been thinking of getting a part-job, preferably overnight hours. The whole store is a mess so I figured it wouldn't have terribly crazy standards and a time-consuming hiring process like at Target. I filled out the two-page application (they were xerox'ed copies) in my car in the parking lot. Got a call about one week later to come in for an interview Friday afternoon of that week. Arrived that day and waited 15 minutes on the middle of the floor, until the manager came out and took me upstairs -- yes, upstairs along a tiny staircase in the corner of the warehouse -- to where his "office" was. And what an office it was. It looked like it had hurricane had hit it. I sensed the shambolic environment, which surprised me for a brand like BB&B. It was worse than someplace I'd expect like K-Mart. The manager was cordial, asked me the basic rudimentary questions, and 15 minutes later it was all over and I left his warzone -- I mean, office.
