    Stop treating employees like dirt.

    I worked at Bed Bath & Beyond part-time (more than 3 years)

    Pros

    Great environment, filled with great staff. The training was on point and there was always room for growth and promotion.

    Cons

    There were many late nights but I believe being in retail these nights are going to happen if you want the store to look in tip top shape for the next day.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Have a little more faith in the employees to make difficult decisions. This will help save on time and keep the customer happy.

    Pros

    I enjoy seeing new products, helping customers choose what works best for them, training is a focus.

    Cons

    You're given way too much to do in a short time frame. expectations are very high, which seems to stress out managers and they no longer care about customers.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Don't forget the number one reason you have a job.... The customers.
    Be accountable for the things you are supposed to do. Don't pawn your work off on someone else making a quarter what you do!!

    Pros

    Benefits for full-time, Employee incentives, some stores give you either Saturday or Sunday off.

    Cons

    Management needs to work with associates on the sales floor, more training for new hires, updated equipment would help complete the job faster, the turn over is insane we need to give more than 2% to 5% raises to keep people.

    Pros

    They are concerned for the customer and unless you steal or lie they allow you to learn from mistakes. They are not in debt which provides for stable jobs. They are competitive in wages.

    Cons

    They are slow to address big issues. Technology is antiquated and they demand so much from the employees and managers. There is no bench for managers so people are getting promoted prematurely.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    You have lost some great managers due to the workload and lack of appreciation for what they have contributed.
