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

    Pros

    i work as a put away employee and once we put everything away on the show floor and we are backstocking we can kind of take it slower but still work at a pace where the job still gets done.

    Cons

    there are so many moving parts that at times one can get confused as to where he is supposed to be at what time. also there is always so much stuff and not enough room.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    there should definitely be more opportunity for promotion and hours.

    Pros

    They work around your schedule. Management is kind and most of the people working there are too .

    Cons

    Management changes a lot which means the rules change a lot. Some managers get mad and feel as though your not doing your job properly when they come into the store.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    There needs to be one person to get the message across to everyone. Also having store meetings would be great too .

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

    Pros

    decent pay, job security and stability. I enjoyed working with some really fun people and making friends.

    Cons

    physical work, overworked/underpaid, unrealistic expectations that nobody would ever be able to fulfill! Failure to promote from within and instead hire outside management who knows little about company programs. The company is too top heavy and has entirely too many upper level managers.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    More employees should be developed into management, rather than bringing in outside management.

    Bed Bath & Beyond was a great place to work during college and was a good transition job.

    I worked at Bed Bath & Beyond

    Pros

    Managers all made it a point to get to know you and work with you as much as possible. Always flexible with scheduling and recognized performance and assigned additional responsibilities when appropriate.

    Cons

    Sometimes did not have enough resources to complete all work necessary. Better discounts for employees would be nice.

    Pros

    Office culture is laid back and friendly. Everyone knows one another and the feeling is very communal. Office is beautiful and modern. The traditional feel to Bed Bath & Beyond makes for a trustworthy company.

    Cons

    It does not seem that there is a lot of movement and/or promotions. Many people there had the same position for seemingly much too long.

    I worked at Bed Bath & Beyond

    Pros

    Employee discount of 20% but it's not really better than the coupons mailed to the customers.

    Cons

    A lot of training on how to talk to the customers (like greeting every customer) but the reinforcement is inconsistent.
