    Customer Service Representative Interview

    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 2 weeks. I interviewed at Bed Bath & Beyond (Anchorage, AK) in February 2017.

    Interview

    I applied online and received an email that said I had to go in store to set up an interview. I got in and immediately spoke with a manager. She asked me very basic questions about what I did at my former job, my availability, and clarified that they only had part time hours. Once we got through that, she scheduled an interview with the general store manager. When I came for my interview, the manager skipped out on my interview and I was interviewed by another store manager. The interview questions were pretty simple but a tad long winded. I walked away with a good feeling about the job. I was told that they would call within 48 hours.

    Sales Associate/Cashier Interview

    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied in-person. The process took 3 weeks. I interviewed at Bed Bath & Beyond (San Luis Obispo, CA) in January 2017.

    Interview

    I had to go through 3 intereviews, 2 with store managers and 1 with supervisor. All the intereviews were super easy, very personable and confortable. Typical questions like why I wanna work there or tell me about your self. One thing that annoyed me was that I was always on time for my interview but I would end up waiting for 20-15 minutes each time just waiting for there interviewer to show up. Over all it was alot of work and waiting just for such a easy cashier and sales job. 3 intereviews it's alot if you ask me, and it wasn't even for full-time. Have fun trying to get full-time with them lol. It's definitely a store where you have to work your way up.

    Merchandising Manager Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate
    No Offer
    Negative Experience

    Interview

    I submitted an application online. I regret not reading reviews about the role since people were brutally honest and if I had, I wouldn't have even applied in the first place.

    I was contacted by a recruiter and played phone tag with them for a while. I asked them to please either schedule a time to speak, or in the very least contact me before 9am, during lunch or after 5pm. I finally secured a time to speak with the recruiter and they were extremely curt and cut me off while I was speaking repeatedly.

    They basically asked me if I was still employed and if I could come in for an interview. No other screening questions which struck me.

    The recruiter asked for my availability and I gave a specific date and time. They then scheduled me for my interview during a time that was not in my availability. I told him I was unable to make it and he said that "their management will be disappointed and that it's my loss".

    If the recruiter is any indication of the acceptable behaviors their, I want no part of it. I told them I no longer wanted to be in consideration for the role and thanked them for their time.

    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied in-person. The process took 1 day. I interviewed at Bed Bath & Beyond (Atlanta, GA) in November 2016.

    Interview

    Fast and simple. Very friendly environment. We walked around the store and it was more like a friendly conversation and less like a formal job interview. Didn't feel intimidating at all. I got to know more about the business and the job responsibilities. It was a very pleasant interview.

    Director Interview

    Interview

    The hiring manager was stuck on my technical/tech know-how and did not believe I was a leader that can execute even after I gave many examples during interview and via followup emails, also on my resume, of successfully launching programs and initiatives. My technical know-how is an added benefit to understand what technologies and solutions BBB should and should not be deploying (from experience working in the industry for 10yrs). The HR person was un-proffessional with no follow ups and when I asked for help to manage the perception. They left it at they will continue searching for the right person and it has been 6 months and they just reposted the role again.
