    I applied online. The process took a week. I interviewed at Bath & Body Works (Huber Heights, OH) in May 2016.

    Interview

    It was very basic questions about customer service and the common questions about how you would coach in the moment, and how you handle certain situations. She was very nice and listened to everything you were saying. She never interrupted me in my answers.I did not feel awkward at all.

A structured interview guide is utilized to screen for top performering employees. Must be enthusiastic, customer service focused and driven. Phone interview was short and to the point. Checked past customer base and sales results.

    Application

    I applied in-person. The process took 5 days. I interviewed at Bath & Body Works (Seattle, WA).

    Interview

    They had me interview with 2 Store Managers and the District Manager. Had to drive to different stores, some pretty far away. Every manager had her own interview style, so it is kind of hard to give a good description. The primary focus, though, is on sales and coaching the team.

    Interview Questions

    • They always ask about goals and sales experience. They look for SMART answers (look up this method if you're not familiar!)   Answer Question

    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 1+ week. I interviewed at Bath & Body Works.

    Interview

    First interview with the store manager went extremely well. Moved onto the second interview with the district manager which also went extremely well - even discussed taking on my own store in 12-18 months and my feelings on relocation (which I was very open to). Discussed my work history, education, current interests, and goals with each of them. Overall a very pleasant interview process. I was told I'd be hearing from them within 1 week. After 10 days and after all the positivity and great interviews, I received a generic rejection email with no further details as to why I was not selected. As a person purposefully seeking a different job than the one I currently have, a little explanation as to why I was not picked would've been nice. Everything was falling into place with them and I was really excited only to be let down hard. I guess I'll just stay with my current company for now.

    Interview

    Was contacted by the store manager to schedule a phone interview. I patiently waited for an hour past the time we had arranged, but received nothing. Very unprofessional. If that is how store managment operates I am glad not to be on the team.

    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online. I interviewed at Bath & Body Works (Orlando, FL) in June 2017.

    Interview

    Applied online, got a call within 2-3 days from the training manager to set up an interview later that week. DM was on vacation, but interview process was fast and easy. First with the pre-screening store manager, then with the store manager of the store you will be working at. I think my experience was a lot different given my substantial retail background, and taking the position is a step down from my current one. Didn't have to negotiate salary, they paid me over what my minimum was and I immediately accepted.
