Easy Interview

Application

I applied online. The process took 1+ week. I interviewed at Bath & Body Works in June 2016.

Interview

Went in store and told the person working I was there for an interview; was instructed to wait and just "walk and look around the store", approx. 10-15 minutes later I was directed to a very small, cramped back room with 2 other people, and the interviewing process began.

We were required to roleplay sales person to customer.

    Application

    I applied in-person. The process took a week. I interviewed at Bath & Body Works (San Antonio, TX) in September 2015.

    Interview

    It was a group interview. Since it was a new store they were looking for both part time core associates and seasonal. They asked us if we could open our availibilty more than what we put down usually. They usually tell you about the company and expect you to take retail very seriously because it is fast paced and requires a lot out of you.

    Application

    The process took 3 weeks. I interviewed at Bath & Body Works (Providence, RI) in April 2012.

    Interview

    I had previously printed out a job application for BBW off my computer. I filled it out with as much detail as possible and I also included my resume. On my resume I listed my skills and gave a description of those skills. It just makes things so much easier. Anyways, after filling out my application I walked into the store that I wanted to apply for on a Sunday. I handed my application along with my resume to one of the associates and left. One day later (on that Monday) I received a call for the store manager for an interview! The interview was very laid back. Took place in the back room. Asked about why I wanted to work there, what my fav products were, etc. Talked about salaries for part timers, etc. Really easy overall. P.S. that was my first job interview ever. :)

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 4 weeks. I interviewed at Bath & Body Works (Oklahoma City, OK) in September 2015.

    Interview

    I had group interview. they went around the room and asked everyone the same questions. It took about 30 minutes. I don't like group interviews because I feel you don't really learn any about the person. A lot of people were just copying what the person before them said. There were some larger people in the interview and at the end of the interview the manager looked at the larger girl and said they work hard at bath and body and you can't just sit around and do nothing. I thought that was really rude.
