    Pros

    Management was great at my particular store, co workers were helpful, good hours, always busy so the day goes by fast

    Cons

    We were understaffed, the technology they use is severely outdated, not a great discount, one or two bad customers

    I have been working at Bed Bath & Beyond full-time (less than an year)

    Pros

    I was a cashier and the pay was decent including the working environment. It is a calm job; excluding the uncommon unhappy customers. Overall a nice workplace.

    Cons

    This job can sometimes be very slow, but if you can find a way to entertain yourself it's not that bad.

    Pros

    Discount
    Good Management team
    Good training and ethics
    Nice coworkers

    Cons

    So far I only do not like a set schedule. I am ocd in a way and would prefer to work the same shift so I can keep my life outside in order.
    I cannot really say anything else in a negative aspect.

    I loved my job there. I wish I was still working there. Had to quit because of family issues. Worked many different positions while I was there.

    I worked at Bed Bath & Beyond full-time (more than 8 years)

    Pros

    I loved to help the customers. The company teaches great customer service. I was interested in the items we sold. Co workers were also nice to work with.

    Cons

    Management was horrible. They never appreciated anything you did, when you went over & BEYOND to do the task they asked you to do. Never got thanked or just told "Hey great job". Always negativity. Management was never organized or on the SAME PAGE as each other.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Treat your employees better & praise them when they do a good job. Treat them as equals, not beneath you. They will work harder & have a great attitude altogether if they feel respected.
