Co Manager Interview

Anonymous Employee in Miami, FL
Accepted Offer
Neutral Experience
Easy Interview

Application

I applied online. The process took 5+ months. I interviewed at Bath & Body Works (Miami, FL) in August 2013.

Interview

I filled out an online employment application. I wasn't contacted for several months (4 or 5 months). I was contacted by a store manager to set up a time for the first interview. After meeting with a store manager I was set up with a second interview with another store manager. The second interview went well. I was called later on in the week and was offered a position. I was told that I was going to be contacted about a start time and date... That never happened. I reached out to the store and spoke to a Co Manager and was set up with a time and date to start.

Interview Questions

Negotiation

The manager that made me an offer asked me what I was looking for (pay rate). He was able to meet that and went a little above what I was expecting.

    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied through a recruiter. The process took 2 days. I interviewed at Bath & Body Works (Memphis, TN).

    Interview

    Never had a face to face. Was hired over the phone. Recruiter called me, and offered me the position, mailed me all the paperwork and set up training. It was odd because they never wanted to meet me in person to speak with anyone local, but I was fine with that.

    Negotiation

    Made an offer and I accepted. NO negotiating.

    Co Manager Interview

    Positive Experience
    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied through other source. The process took 2 weeks. I interviewed at Bath & Body Works (Reno, NV) in April 2011.

    Interview

    The process changes. If you know someone and can get your foot in the door, you may not have to do much. If you do have an interview for this position, it may have to go through various channels such as Store Managers, District Managers, and Regional Managers. They ask questions that you think you can answer well but are always looking for underlying clues about how you handle situations. Have a "leadership" mindset and real life situations to use as examples.

    Negotiation

    I have worked for a different store in this company and know the pay rates. I asked for an amount just under the cap (due to my experience) and received it.

    Application

    I applied in-person. The process took 2 weeks. I interviewed at Bath & Body Works (Alexandria, LA) in June 2016.

    Interview

    I went into the store location I applied at and interviewed with the General Manager. The interview lasted over an hour but that's because it was going very well. After that I did a phone interview with a General Manager from a larger store. That one lasted about 15 minutes and she was very nice and I could tell it went well. These two interviews were only a couple days apart. The next interview was a phone interview with the District Manager. This one last about 30 minutes. This one went well too. This interview took place about a week after the 1st 2 interviews. After interviewing with the DM I received a call from the GM that I was being extended an offer for employment and I accepted.

    Interview process is fairly laid back. In management, you must interview with the District Manager.
