    Conseillère De Vente Interview

    Anonymous Employee in Paris (France)
    Accepted Offer
    Negative Experience
    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took a week. I interviewed at The Body Shop (Paris (France)) in December 2014.

    Interview

    J'ai été contactée après avoir postulé sur un site. L'entretien s'est bien passé mais, à l'issue de celui-ci, je devais être rappelée dans la journée si j'étais prise. Je n'ai eu aucune nouvelle de l'enseigne pendant plusieurs jours.
    Jusqu'au vendredi suivant, où une responsable de boutique m'a appelée pour me donner mes horaires du lundi - personne n'avait pensé à me prévenir que j'étais embauchée et j'ai dû démarrer au pied levé.

    Key Holder Interview

    Anonymous Employee
    Accepted Offer
    Positive Experience
    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 4 weeks. I interviewed at The Body Shop in March 2018.

    Interview

    I applied online for the key holder position. About two weeks later I received a call to come in for an interview. I interviewed with the store manager and she was very nice and asked questions about my sales and customer experience. They also ask what you know about the body shop. I then had a phone interview about five days later with the district manager. She let me talk a majority of the time. They ask about sales and leadership experience and just want to get to know you. They also ask about the body shop and why you want to work there. Five days later I had not heard anything so I went in the store (highly recommend this!) and spoke to the manager. She planned speak with the district manager that day. And sure enough I received an email a few hours later. Unfortunately I did not get an offer for the key holder position BUT they offered me a customer consultant position. I counter offered with the compensation and they gave it to me. Over all it was an easy process. Do your research and show your excitement for the company. Took about one month total from applying online to getting hired.

    Assistant Marketing Manager Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate
    No Offer
    Negative Experience
    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied online. I interviewed at The Body Shop.

    Interview

    This is was probably the most unprofessionally and painfully quick interviews of my life. The hiring manager had no questions for me which I found to be odd as well as insulting seeing as she clearly didn't do any prep for our interview at all. The AVP literally sat with me for 5 mins before running off, which was unnecessary -- just don't come, what could you possible learn within 5 mins about a candidate?

    Just want to note that I was not invited to phone interview at all which I found odd but decided to role with it, I thought it meant that they we're skilled and efficient interviewers which was quite the contrary.

    Assistant Marketing Manager Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in New York, NY (US)

    Negative Experience
    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 6 weeks. I interviewed at The Body Shop (New York, NY (US)) in November 2017.

    Interview

    I applied for the position online in mid Oct and heard back at the end of Oct for an immediate in person interview. I found the interview extremely underwhelming and knew that the hiring manager didn't really know what she was doing in her position. I next met with the AVP of Marketing who met with me for no more than 5 mins. It was honestly the biggest waste of my time as well as humiliating.
