Store Manager Interview

Application Details

The process took 1+ week - interviewed at Bed Bath & Beyond.

Interview Details

Due to turnover they are always looking for managers which should have served as a warning to me. I had two interviews and the whole process took only 10 days. My first interview was with a district hr manager then the final was with a district manager. The district manager kept getting interrupted during my interview by phone calls and employee questions which was not professional .

    I applied through a recruiter. The process took 2 days - interviewed at Bed Bath & Beyond.

    Interview Details

    When someone brings in an application a manager is paged to come upfront to meet and greet. At this time the manager is to spend 5 to 10 minutes walking and talking with this person. This process is not an interview. Then if that manager liked what they went over then it would be passed on to a second manager usually the store manager. The meet and greets can be as high as 2 a day or 20 a day just depends. Then the store manager will call in the ones that where passed along as good ones to look at.

    Negotiate for all you can. BBBY does not give much of a raise. What you make starting out is pretty much all you will make.

    I applied online. 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.

    Application Details

    I applied online. The process took 2 weeks - interviewed at Bed Bath & Beyond in September 2012.

    Interview Details

    Submitted application and resume online. Received call from recruiter about one week later. Very brief phone interview asking about my experience and why I want to work for the company. I thought it went well especially since he said he'd like to set up an interview with a local Store Manager. A week later, I got a form letter stating that they did not want to move forward.

    Application Details

    I applied through a recruiter. The process took 3 weeks - interviewed at Bed Bath & Beyond in February 2013.

    Interview Details

    Got there had a paper app thrown at me so I filled it out. Sat down with an H.R. hiring manager and was just told about the company was asked a few management questions was told that they start everyone at department manager level (which was a mislead from the email he sent me since he reached out to me, I never sent them my resume? So I was then asked what I thought I should be paid and if I would consider other markets than just the one I reside in and I said yes. He thn stated that he would get back with me in a week or so. I got a letter in the mail 2 weeks later saying that he wouldn't be able to extend an offer. It really seemed like a weird awkward interview, I left there not wanting the job anyway.

    I applied through a recruiter. The process took 2 weeks - interviewed at Bed Bath & Beyond in June 2011.

    Interview Details

    I responded to an online ad for management candidates.HR did a great job 'selling' BB&B as only strong HR people can do. A week later: the District Manager was distracted perhaps as it was a Saturday. My follow up calls to HR were comical: no voice mail and poor telephone skills by the three stores I had to call.

    Interview Details

    They were really intrested in what you knew about the company and it history. They were key on work hours and if you were willing to logg in the hours that they expect management to put into the business. They will expect you to place business first and yourself second. All about BBB....
