    I applied online. The process took a week. I interviewed at Bed Bath & Beyond in July 2018.

    Interview

    It was a really nice and easy interview. I had the interview with the head of HR of the region. She connected with me and we began talking about other Bed Bath and Beyond stores. I was asked about myself and if I could manage school and work. There were a lot of situational questions but nothing difficult, they welcome having opinions and collaboration with the management. Afterwards I met the GM of the actual store since he would ultimately decide who was hired. We also bonded and he mentioned wanting to change how the store would look and the type of team he wanted to create. His question was what the HR and I talked about and I told him everything. He looked at my resume and said I was smart and he could see me be a part of the team. Asked if cooking was a hobby of mine (no) and determined soft side would be best. Then went over the general expectations (customer service and communication) and that everyone would be trained for all positions so they're very flexible with schedules since you will know how each department works and can fill in for any hours needed. I was told I would be contacted by the end of the week and ended up being contacted about 6 days later with an offer of $12/hr. I have no prior experience in retail and placed $11/hr (minimum wage) on my app. Orientation will be in two weeks!

    Interview

    Applied online. Got a request To interview. Went in store. Had to fill out a paper application. Then met with a team leader only to be told they don't hire temporary workers even though I'd be transferring to another store when I went back to school. Was totally pointless. Don't apply for summer work here.

    Interview

    I went to the main interview building I'm guessing, it was like a warehouse building. When I went inside they handed me a sheet to fill up so I sat near all the other applicants then handed it back. A few minutes after they called my name. I was interviewed by a woman she was really friendly and nice. The interview was about 10 mins then she offered me the positions me I accepted. She said they do a background check
