Store Manager Interview

Anonymous Employee
Boca Raton, FL (US)

The process took 1+ week - interviewed at Bed Bath & Beyond.

Interview Details Due to turnover they are always looking for managers which should have served as a warning to me. I had two interviews and the whole process took only 10 days. My first interview was with a district hr manager then the final was with a district manager. The district manager kept getting interrupted during my interview by phone calls and employee questions which was not professional .

Interview Question – Questions were all generic and typical of any interview.   Answer Question

Negotiation Details – Salary was more than I was currently making so I was satisfied .

Assistant Manager Interview

Assistant Manager

I applied in-person and the process took 4 weeks - interviewed at Bed Bath & Beyond in July 2011.

Interview Details Long and tedious, I waited upwards of four weeks before moving along in the process. Although I was hired, it wasnt the first impression that I had hoped for. The onboarding process was equally unimpressive, you had better be a self starter, cause you will receive the bare minimum attention.

Interview Question – The questions were sporadic, none that I would site as usefull to communicate.   Answer Question

Negotiation Details – Once again, it was very sporadic.

Sales Associate Interview

Sales Associate

I applied in-person and the process took 1 week - interviewed at Bed Bath & Beyond.

Interview Details I applied and a week later I was called and verbally offered a $8/hr salary, and asked if I could come in for training a few days later--no interview. The application was standard, nothing out of the ordinary. I later heard they unexpectedly lost a few employees and we in dire need of new hires. Myself and two other employees were hired without an interview (myself) or after just one (the two others) interview. There are usually two, or even three interviews. If you don't get a call back after the first one, the manager didn't like your hours probably.
