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 group interview. The questions where easy to answer and straight foreword don't be nervous to speck up everyone is friendly.

To be friendly with everyone
My interview was with the store manager. She was extremely friendly and started off with getting to know me then went into the "harder" questions but overall the interview went smoothly.
Very inviting. The district manager was very easy to interview with, but she was very detailed. I could tell that she really enjoyed what she did.

Before it was a three step process. 2 panel interviews with 5-7 very specific questions. Follow up interview, usually with a different DM over the phone. Last one I knew of: applicant did not even show up, DM called to give interview over the phone and hired on the spot... It's not as hard to get a job now, but unless they change their new pay scale.... well you get what you pay for.
Short, I had 2 interviews and got a call back a few days after my interview saying that I had the job.
