    I worked at Bed Bath & Beyond part-time (less than a year)

    Pros

    Nice people, consistent scheduling, great pay (9.50/hour), intense training that prepares you to answer people's questions on the floor... but also a huge emphasis on asking for help whenever needed, which takes the pressure off.

    Cons

    Employees get a 20% discount, but bed bath and beyond sends out 20% coupons each week that cannot be stacked with it... aka the discount doesn't help you at all if you already were using the coupons

    training is a bit tedious

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Nothing!

    Pros

    Set your own pace plus you have plenty of work and most co- workers are team players.

    Cons

    Some of the Upper management suck! They yell at you and get mad and instead of taking you to the office to talk with you! They front you out in front of other employees! Not very professional!!

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Treat people that work for you with respect! For goodness sake we are all adults working for a living! Have a little more patience with people and hell more than less!

    Pros

    Face it, retail is retail no matter where you go. But at Bed Bath a& Beyond you tend to feel the positive that come with giving "good customer service". Co-workers can be like your family and the management isn't all that bad. But you do grow no matter what position your in and get the knowledge you are suppose to have for informing customers.

    Cons

    Customers. Not all of them but you have to be careful that you don't become their personal shopper. The inventory system and routines could use some improvement and so can the technology. Unfortunately the company won't invest in anything that will not reap a lot of profit.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Inventory, Inventory, Inventory. It needs to be controlled.
