    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Mediocre treatment attracts mediocre employees. The good ones will leave, this is why successful business's with dedicated employees are usually top in their field in treating their employees well. If you pay with scraps, that is all you will get back.

    I worked at Bed Bath & Beyond full-time (more than 5 years)

    Pros

    The pay and benefits are both ok.
    You are given some ownership on merchandising which is rare in retail any more.
    Financially stable company.

    Cons

    Too much management at every level. The stores have up to 8 manager, the district level has 6 and the region has 6 more. Since all of these people are trying to gain or protect the same jobs no one is on the same page. It wasn't uncommon to redo the same display 3 or 4 times in a week depending on what visitors you had.

    Too many audits and paperwork. Each of the district staff members will audit the store at least once a year. This is not just a visit but a 100+ line checklist. A large portion of March through May is taken up by these audits.

    The company says they promote from within but fast-tracking managers has become the norm. Guys are brought in at extremely high salaries and receive multiple promotions to become a store manager in 3 months. These managers are usually not bought into the company culture and tend to quit after a year.

    Very very early mornings and very late nights. Often times I would come in at 6 am on Monday work a split shift and since freight is done after hours not get leave until 11 pm. The next morning I would be back in by 6 to work on resets before the 10 am cutoff.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Cut out redundancies and make sure that all management has a clear vision of the company's goals.

    Pros

    If you're a student looking for some pay, this is a pretty good place to start. Your coworkers are likely to be friendly, and customer service isn't taken lightly. Starting with the company with serious social anxiety, management was very friendly in giving me steps towards doing my job better, especially if they know you want to improve.

    Cons

    People are friendly, but expect occasional gossip. Customers are also be more spoiled compared to other retailers. Always the issue of being barely understaffed, so multitasking is too common. Raises are around $0.20 for a GOOD annual review. It's also difficult to move up if that's what you want, especially if you don't give off the exact impression they're looking for (they will promote someone who knows the bare bones as opposed to someone that knows the ins and outs as well). Management can also be very lackadaisical, but your closest supervisors and managers are usually down to earth. Tech Is also very outdated, to where I can see the company fail if it weren't for the bridal stuff. Superb customer service gets you so far.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Honestly not too sure what to put here, but tech is in need of serious upgrading.
