Sales Associate/Cashier Interview

Anonymous Interview Candidate in Vienna, VA

Positive Experience
Easy Interview

Application

I applied in-person. The process took a week. I interviewed at Bed Bath & Beyond (Vienna, VA) in June 2011.

Interview

When I applied to BBB, they seemed eager to meet me. The interview was brief and before I knew it they were scheduling me before I was actually hired...needless to say, it's a very easy job to get so long as you're a normal, respectable human being.

Very easy. He made it seem obvious that I was going to be hired but didn't get a call till a few days later. Interview was mostly about getting to know me personally. They really like cheerful people.

    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied in-person. The process took 1 day. I interviewed at Bed Bath & Beyond (Toms River, NJ) in February 2012.

    Interview

    I called at the right time and got the head store manager. He was extremely nice and had a professional appearance. The interview was very informal and relaxed and general questions were asked. He made it seem like I was not wasting his time which made the interview so much easier and less stressful.

    Interview Questions

    • We dont have aisle numbers in the store. How would you direct a customer who asks where an item is.   5 Answers

    Negotiation

    I feel a little underpaid because I was afraid to ask for a higher starting salary. Dont be afraid to be aggressive as the worst they can say is no and negotiate a lower salary. Overall the negotiation phase was not anything intense and was very laid back.

    I did not negotiate, but i should have. Your starting wage will not change much for the time employed there. There raises are a joke, so don't be afraid to ask for a good starting wage.
