    Interview

    The interview was done in a group setting and was very uncomfortable. Everyone was asked the same question and was basically trying to one-up the others. They also have you pick your favorite product when you come in for the interview and have you "sell" it to the hiring manager.

    Application

    I applied online. I interviewed at Bath & Body Works (Wausau, WI) in September 2017.

    Interview

    I applied online and got a call a few days later and scheduled a interview. The interview was just me and the manager, she was really nice. The interview was about 10 minutes and easy. She read off some store policies and asked if I was okay with them.
    After the interview she said she was doing callbacks at 8:00 pm that night (my interview was at 7:00 pm). I got the call back and accepted the job.

    Basic Star format used for each phase of the interview process. The most important part of the interview process was to ensure you would be a good fit with the team and that you are " coachable."

    Application

    I applied online. I interviewed at Bath & Body Works (Raleigh, NC) in August 2017.

    Interview

    It was a little intense with the group interview but when it boils down to it you just need to know how to sell a product without being overly pushy.

    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online. I interviewed at Bath & Body Works in August 2017.

    Interview

    I had a very pleasant interview process. I took just a day or two for the SM to reach out to me after I submitted my application online for an in-person interview, which was scheduled two days afterward. My in-person interview lasted about 45 minutes. Afterward, I had a phone interview with a manager from another store (an hour), and once she passed me on, my final interview was with the regional manager, which was also a phone interview (30 minutes). All three interviews were really relaxed and all of the questions that were asked were important, in regards to the position in which I applied for, many of which were situational questions. It took a week and a half total from submitting my application to receiving a job offer.

    General Manager Interview

    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online. I interviewed at Bath & Body Works (Escanaba, MI) in August 2017.

    Interview

    I was interviewing for a store manager position.

    I had an hour long phone interview. The next day, they called back and asked me to travel to an in person interview.

    I had been asked to travel 3 hours to my interview, which I had never heard of a company expecting such a thing. I reluctantly agreed because of the opportunity and the pay of the job.

    I arrived at my interview and the hiring manager talked badly about the assistant manager for approximately 20 minutes of the interview when I asked why she is not being promoted. We had a good interview. I was very professional and the conversation went smoothly.

    I left feeling uneasy after she informed me I would be getting paid salary for 40 hours but being expected to work 50-55 at some weeks. She also told me she wanted to fire everyone at that specific branch and start over.

    She told me she would be in contact with me over the next few weeks and should expect an answer within 3 weeks. 3 weeks have passed and I never received an email or phone call thanking me for my time or my travel. Nor did I receive any contact informing me of any decisions made. Very disrespectful and unprofessional.

    She ended up hiring the assistant manager and I never heard a thing from the company. Now I'm happy and relieved I didn't begin work for such shady people.
