When l started as seasonal, l didn’t get as many hours as l hoped to get, but after 3 weeks, l had work almost everyday and 8+ hour shifts. l also used my call ins without them asking so my shifts were longer, but it paid out.

Allow the stores more hours to schedule associates, eliminate the "call-in" baloney, and promote from within rather than bringing in outsiders. Your associates are clearly there because they like the company and have a passion for it (they would have to be to stay when only scheduled once a week if lucky)....give them a chance to shine!

I interviewed with the store manager ,Athens Tn. With 5 other people .We were in a very dark & small "stock room". I really wanted to work for Bath & Body & was very excited I got an interview, as I have many years of retail experience. Manager ask us our fav scent, although I love several I mentioned one of the older ones, then she made a snide comment about the fact the scent I mentioned was an "older" one, as I'm obviously older then the average employee. Then she spoke of her daughter just turning 18 & she became emotional & started to cry . Nothing major just a few tears. Unprofessional. I would have been a good dependable employee so I consider it her loss & especially Bath & Bodys loss as I was so enthusiastic about possibly working there. I left feeling so deflated after her snarky comment with emphasis on a "older" scent that I had told her I liked when asked. The others picked up on the snarky tone she used & most nervously laughed. Although I am an older woman I was more then qualified & capable to do the job. She not only acted unprofessional she looked unprofessional she could have spent a little more time on her over all appearance. I was hurt at first but come to the conclusion she did me a favor, I wouldn't want to work for her. She's not a nice person. I got the impression she possibly was a little intimidated.

I had a very easy interview process the manager just asked me to tell her a little about myself what I wanted them to know, how I heard about them and why I wanted to work there, my availability and past work history. It was very short and simple

Most associates get 30% at any L-Brands store, but only on full price merchandise. The sales combined with coupons are honestly a much better deal. The perk is seeing what comes in before it hits the shelves and finding treasures!

Pretty much always hiring due to huge turnover, so pretty easy to get in. Usually hear within a week or two. Don't expect many hours though, it can even be difficult at sale time and holiday to get more than a 3 hour shift at a time.
