    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied through an employee referral. The process took 4 days. I interviewed at Bed Bath & Beyond (Las Vegas, NV) in October 2017.

    Interview

    I applied through an employee referral. I met with the hiring manager to turn it in and to introduce myself. I got a call the same day to schedule an interview within the next 2 days. My first interview was with the general manager and then I came back for a second interview with the sales manager. The interview questions came off of 2 pages and they were in-depth, open-ended questions pertaining to past employment history and interaction experience. I got a call 2 days after my interviews and got offered the position to start the following day! It was an overall great experience and I look forward to growing with the company!

    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online. I interviewed at Bed Bath & Beyond in September 2017.

    Interview

    Filled out online application then was emailed a few weeks later to come in to fill out an in person application and wait to possibly be interviewed on the spot. The store I was applying to is changing locations so the store was quite busy which can make the interview process challenging for potential employees.

    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied online. I interviewed at Bed Bath & Beyond (New York, NY) in May 2017.

    Interview

    The interview process was very simply. Once I completed my online application I was contacted to set up an interview within 4 days. I then interviewed with a hiring manager for a little over 20 minutes, 30 at the most. The interviewer was polite, cordial and professional. They answered my questions and asked some general questions to gauge may ability to work in a public/customer service environment.

    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied in-person. The process took 1 day. I interviewed at Bed Bath & Beyond (Tukwila, WA) in March 2017.

    Interview

    I received an on the spot interview immediately after I had filled out an application in the store. I met with one of the managers and he basically just read from a paper that had a bunch of questions on it. After I would answer, he would write down a brief summary of what I said. He then went to fetch another manager which interviewed me in the exact same way. Honestly, as long as you try your best to answer the questions, you'll do fine. I was hired on the spot. It only took about half an hour.

    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied online. I interviewed at Bed Bath & Beyond (Studio City, CA) in February 2017.

    Interview

    AS i arrived they made me fill out an application in person because they don't use the ones online. I then had to wait about 10 minutes for the interviewer. They had me down for an interview but had the wrong name because they couldn't spell it correctly.
    It was Super fast, did the second interview 5 minutes after the first. Very unorganized , the interviewer did not seem prepared for the interview. It was all done last minute, they couldn't find a person to do the second interview. I hated this interview it seemed like they were running out of questions to ask me. All this took place in a very small, unorganized office. People would walk in halfway through.

    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied in-person. I interviewed at Bed Bath & Beyond in January 2017.

    Interview

    Applied in-store. Got a call for an interview about a week later. Came into the store and they asked a couple questions, mostly went over background/work history. About a week later I got a call back for a second interview with a different person. We mostly went over my availability and work history. I was offered the job then. Both interviewers were slightly rude and the overall vibe was depressing but the interviews were easy- not a lot of difficult questions.
