    Application

    I applied online. The process took 6 days. I interviewed at Bath & Body Works.

    Interview

    Very “cool kids club” vibe. I have a proven history of success and customer focus, but the DM and SM are looking for their next cool kid. Lots of intensity and they wore their emotions in their face to my responses, which displayed unprofessionally and overly transparent. No denial follow up email/call, which is usually an indicator of how the company will value you (or lack of) once you get in the door. Disappointed in my experience and will not pursue this company in the future.

    Difficult Interview

    Application

    I applied in-person. The process took 3+ months. I interviewed at Bath & Body Works (New York, NY) in May 2017.

    Interview

    Unprofessional, interviewer was rude. Didn't feel welcomed when first approached employee by the front door, turns out to be the store manager. Her body chemistry was just awful. Just depends on the type of environment it's in.

    Assistant Store Manager Interview

    Anonymous Employee in Broomfield, CO

    Positive Experience
    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied through an employee referral. The process took 2 days. I interviewed at Bath & Body Works (Broomfield, CO) in July 2011.

    Interview

    Interview process was fairly painless. It was more like a conversation between friends. Person who interviewed me was very friendly, and very open to answering any questions that I had about company culture, etc. I interviewed first with the District Manager for my particular position, then with the store manager, but I have a feeling that this might not always be the way it works. DM recruited me when I was working for a similar type of store (different company).
