Sales Associate Interview

Average Interview

Application

I applied online. I interviewed at Bath & Body Works (Deer Park, NY) in December 2016.

Interview

The interview was done as a group. They brought us to the back and sat us down. They began to ask basic interview questions. The group interview was kind of intimidating. They asked questions regarding previous experiences in retail and things of that sort. They also asked and informed us about how the company works.

    Interview

    Asked about how I was going to sell something and also did a demo with another employee on a scenario of a client who is not really interested. It was difficult but you have to keep continuing to talk to the person even if they are annoyed.

    I applied in-person. The process took 5 days. I interviewed at Bath & Body Works in October 2016.

    Interview

    It was really short and sweet. We had to choose a favorite product and pitch it to the manager. I had worked for the company before so I already had a product in mind. I would just be sure to know a little about the products beforehand so you can sell them. She also asked basic retail questions.

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 3 days. I interviewed at Bath & Body Works in October 2016.

    Interview

    Instead of having the interview in a breakroom or back room, she pulled me into an awkward corner of the store. She was condescending, arrogant, and didn't listen to anything I had say. She talked me down into a lower postion that I was overqualified for (however, I needed the money).
