    I worked at Bed Bath & Beyond full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    Good benefits, discount, good leaders. Always wants to have best in class products.

    Cons

    Too many meetings, as product needed to be shared with each level of management

    Advice to Management

    streamline product cycle, have buyers (merchants) take more risks. Maybe the President shouldnt have a final voice to just about every single item in the store.

    I worked at Bed Bath & Beyond (More than 10 years)

    Pros

    The pay was pretty reasonable for the position. They allow you to do what you have to do to satisfy the customer and are serious about trying to provide a good shopping experience.

    Cons

    Payroll is way to tight. They do not have enough employees in the store to get the expected work done and provide the level of customer service expected. The payroll hours decline every year while the amount of work to be done increases.

    Advice to Management

    You can't continue to cut hours and expect the same level of service. Managers are doing most of the grunt work and not given enough time to manage and develop associates.

    Pros

    Competitive pay. Independence in running the business. Relatively good with working around personal life. The company runs on an open door policy.

    Cons

    Long hours. Unattainable expectations with the resources given. Schedules tend to be changed often. Very little room for advancement.

    Advice to Management

    Do the best you can to get in with the district staff and manager. In store accomplishments is not that important.


  11. Customer Service

    Pros

    Worked around my school schedule. Learn how to multi task. Learn how to work well with other people. Pay is decent though.

    Cons

    A very large amount of micromanagement. After every shift they graded how you did for the day. Even if you were good there were barely any hours to work. You could not move up. Benefits only applied to managers in the store. Extremely hard to get a full time position.

    Advice to Management

    People are willing to become full time who are not allowed to become full time. Make sure all of your managers have the same rules. Stop favoritism.
