    Pros

    It's fast moving company. They start you out above minimum wage. There is room for advancement.

    Cons

    The management team needs better training on how to deal with employees. There needs to be training about how to combat racism in the work place. Respect for the employees needs to happen. There is an issue with not respecting an employees availability. The pay does not equal the work load.

    Advice to Management

    Learn how to positively run a business. Employees are the reason this business is still thriving. Treating them less than is unacceptable.

    Pros

    If you pride yourself in great customer service, merchandising, competitiveness, and bring a positive attitude you will do well. Plenty of opportunity to move up as well.

    Cons

    you will work long hours and they have very high expectations. It can be difficult if you get lazy and you really have to be on top of your toes during peek business hours. It can get crazy when you aren't allowed to have lines.

    Advice to Management

    Maintain a positive outlook at all times. If you're positive and constantly coming up with ideas to help the company grow they will reward you.

    Pros

    If you like providing customer service, this is the place for you. There are not a lot of projects, there is filling and zoning, and the customer is always the main priority.

    Cons

    The product training is ok and could be much more in depth for what they are selling. They spend about 30 minutes at each section and then you are considered to an expert.

    Advice to Management

    I didn't really interact with upper management.

    Pros

    Awesome co workers(in my store), Discount was 10%, The customers are usually real down to earth, and nice. Very easy job as most retail jobs. They don't ask for to much just work, and listen, and be friendly to everyone. The managers were great to work with. I never knew about Bed Bath & Beyonds return policy until i worked there. Awesome return policy, if you don't know. You can basically return anything even if you don't have a receipt. If it stops working 5 years from now they will replace, or exchange it.

    Cons

    Not much. Advancement is basic. Assistant, manager, senior manager, and with enough experience, and schooling, store manager. Not a place i would set up, and make a career from. Something more for younger people like myself looking for some cash.

    Advice to Management

    Management was great, i couldn't give anymore advice that i am sure their district managers already give. My store had awesome managers.

    Pros

    Great customer relations when you are scheduled enough hours to interact with them! Great co-workers!

    Cons

    False promises, avoid communicating about real issues, preach daily for what's good for the management to be praised by higher up but the little guy is forgotten. Scheduled hours too uncertain, if hired to work 30+ hours, schedule should stay at least the 30 hours! Most competitors have changed minimum start wage to $9/hr with $10 after 6 month training completion!

    Advice to Management

    Appreciate those that work hard for you, promote from within, and train managers to mentor positively with all employees, don't play favorites, If someone isn't the right fit for the job then retrain or relieve them, don't be scared to pay unemployment (most wouldn't file anyway, would just get another job, wouldn't be enough money to eat off of for a week!) Show appreciation more than just when corporate goals are met!

    Pros

    I have worked at two different BBB's throughout the last five years. I had an amazing experience at the first one which is why when I needed a job in a new city I applied to another BBB. The first one taught me how to be a great salesman, made me a great people person, and gave me a lot of confidence in myself as an employee. The store worked like a well oiled machine and though it did have some turnover because a lot of the employees were college students, it was obvious that the managers really cared about their jobs and took the time to get to know their sales associates. There is a yearly raise based on your review.

    Cons

    I learned at my second BBB that while the company morals are supposed to apply to all stores, this depends on the managers. It turns out that the managers make or break your experience working at a BBB.

    Advice to Management

    The new policy of only allowing part time workers to work a maximum of 25 hours a week is going to cost BBB a lot of good employees. Not hiring good workers to be full time employees simply to avoid having to dole out benefits is a terrible waste of the time and energy the company is already putting into training new employees. At this rate, BBB is hiring great employees and then training them to be great employees at the next place that will give their workers benefits and full time hours.
