This depends on many factors, the most significant of which being skill level. If you come to the store with sales, cashier, and replenishment experience you will get just as many hours as core sales associates. Hours are given based on skills and availability (the more you have, the more you get) not based on seasonal / permanent.

It totally depends on your mall's hours and the setup of the store (coverage required). 3-6 hours are usual shift lengths and most malls staff stores between 9am and 10pm, with shifts outside that for floorsets and updates.

If you're applying and you want to convey that you are available anytime put "open" or "12a-12a" to indicate you can work anytime rather than guessing at your store's schedule.

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
