    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied in-person. The process took 4 days. I interviewed at Bath & Body Works (Herndon, VA) in April 2013.

    Interview

    Came in the store, got an application, discussed with manager for dates to come back in and had no problem scheduling that. Came in for interview in business casual (maybe overdressed a little compared to everyone else dressed very casual). Just always reflect back to previous work experiences so you can explain how you will perform in this job. If you have no previous work experience use school projects or volunteer positions as examples.

    Interview Questions

    • I wasn't really thrown off by any questions they asked.   Answer Question

    Negotiation

    Start small but explain how your work experience and skills could put you at a higher rate. I personally had no problem, manager was pretty reasonable.

    Application

    I applied in-person. The process took 2 weeks. I interviewed at Bath & Body Works in September 2014.

    Interview

    Went to the store and asked for an application. Filled it out in like 20 min. and handed it into a manager. He looked it over and asked why I want to work for them. I got a phone call to schedule an interview about a week later. The day of the interview I showed up and wasn't expecting it to be a group interview. I though I would get the job because the people in the group didn't seem to want the job and one of the people showed up about 15 min. late. At the end of it the co manager said she's check our references and get back to us within the next 2 days after net hearing back for a week I called them and they said they were still checking them. Still haven't heard back.

    Very easy interview. Good for anyone who is starting their first job or who has had previous work experience. They ask questions about yourselves and the most important part is showing that you love the products or at least hold previous knowledge of them.
