    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 1+ week. I interviewed at Bath & Body Works (Gresham, OR) in September 2013.

    Interview

    It was a group interview, we had the store manager ask us questions regarding our past experience. They also asked how we would deal with particular situations in terms of sales. It made the interview feel more competitive because we were each answering the same questions consecutively. However, the interviewer was polite and professional, not giving immediate reactions to any of our responses to the questions. Overall it was a good process.

    Easy interview, they ask you your availability and capabilities. They aren't looking for someone with a large skillset, rather just someone who is there for certain on-call shifts and someone who is good under pressure and talking to various customers.

    It was very fast, organized and easy! In total, it took about a week or week and a half from the time I submit my application, had my interview and was hired on. I was really happy about this because I needed to hear back quickly. It was a group interview with 5 other girls and the store manager which made me feel more comfortable.

    Interview

    Extremely short, no real questions asked, oh and the manager quit after she hired everyone. So we basically walked in got three hours of training and then were expected to be thrown to the wolves on Black Friday.

    Reasons for Declining

    I walked in and was expected to work under ridiculous conditions with refusal of tax forms, no training, and they wanted me to sign off on certifications they had never told me about let alone trained me in.

    Application

    I applied online. The process took a week. I interviewed at Bath & Body Works in November 2016.

    Interview

    I applied about a week prior to getting the callback for a group interview. We were interviewed in the storage/stock room and it was very casual. The interviewer was very friendly and informative about the position we were applying for. A relatively standard interview in terms of questions and such but as part of the process they asked us to pick a product from the store and sort of "sell" it as a demonstration. I recommend picking a product you are familiar with, for example, (for me) I use a lot of perfumes so I was able to talk about that better than if I had picked a candle.

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 2 weeks. I interviewed at Bath & Body Works in October 2016.

    Interview

    I applied online. I was called a few days after to schedule an interview the following Monday. The interview was fairly informal in the back of the store. I was asked to select an item from the front to sell to the manager. The interview lasted around 30 minutes, and I was under the impression I was hired, as the manager said "Welcome to the team," showed me where employees park, and went over the dress code with me. She said I would be getting an e-mail offer that week and a manager would contact me to schedule training that Friday. Didn't get the e-mail or phone call, so I called the store Saturday and asked to speak with the manager to follow up. The girl who answered seemed a little annoyed, and after waiting on hold for several minutes, she told me the manager was too busy and would call me back, so I left a message. I was never called back.

    Interview

    I put an application in..called a couple of weeks later and they told me then to come in the next day to interview.i interviewed with three other people and she hired us all on the spot.I was super excited and really ready to work but my experience was terrible.I never was put on a schedule,i always had to call to see when they wanted me to come in,I never received a call to come in so i eventually stopped calling to go in.I never had any training they just put me out on the sales floor and I had to rely on my previous retail experience to sale bbw products.I only rung up one customer because I wasnt trained on their cash register.They were really unprofessionally and incredibly disorganized.I felt like bath and bodywork's is a great company but unfortunately bad management can make your experience awful.
