    I have been working at Bed Bath & Beyond full-time

    Pros

    Job security, seniority, employee discount (even though it's no better than any regular customer using coupons), great health insurance and benefits paid time off, sick and personal days

    Cons

    Does not promote within even though they advertise it, takes advantage of hardworking employees, makes people work ridiculously late hours, understaffed, not enough time in payroll to properly staff a store, high turnover, does not recognize the dedicated hard working people who deserve to be recognized, expects way too much of underpaid employees and that's why they don't put out the quality work that they should, everyone does not get equal proper training

    Advice to Management

    Recognize the good employees, show them appreciation at the least if can not promote - thank yous go a long way or nice work today


  3. Not a company to seek out.

    Pros

    Lots of good people trying to work and get their job done as best they can with the hours they're given.

    Cons

    At the ASM and SM level it is very cut throat. While that may work for some, most people would like to have a feeling of trust with there colleagues.

    Advice to Management

    My advice to management is Stop Cutting corners. Stop cutting corners on the beyond apps and making people refresh them manually. Stop cutting corners on the training and butchering bed bath university. Stop cutting corners on hours in mid volume stores. Stop cutting corners on the technology and get a real software update for the netboxes in the stores. Stop cutting corners on the ASM's they are important to running that customer service level that customers expect. Every District staff member should know how to run the cash register. Its the most basic representation of what retail is about. Everyone is on the same team, they should act like it.

    Pros

    Great co-workers
    Friendly Customers (Most are from the neighborhood, so faces became familiar)
    Decent pay for a retail store.

    Cons

    Very poor management.
    Poor Scheduling. The same person who closed should not be the same person who opens the very next day!
    Lack of employees
    Not enough growth from within
    Items of the month don't always make sense

    Advice to Management

    Speak to your part time employees with respect instead of with a superior attitude.

    Pros

    Most flexible schedule I've seen in retail so far, you can gain experience in multiple departments very easily and quickly if you are good at what you do, co-workers are fun and usually nice/helpful

    Cons

    No benefits for part-time, very few opportunities to move up despite the fact they claim they move up within the company, management is very bad at managing, the pay is AWFUL and the raises are an absolute joke. The company is more worried about giving management and regional a great salary than paying the hourly workers. It's unfair. They don't want to give full-time positions but they can afford raises for their key holders who don't do anything.

    Advice to Management

    Get better at your job. Stop pushing off tasks to associates and actually do what you're supposed to do. Look out for your employees as much as you do your customers and maybe people would stay at this job.

    Pros

    Three of the four managers were very nice

    Cons

    One of the managers would stand by the front door and look every semi attractive women from head to foot, stopping on certain areas for an uncomfortable amount of time. I don't believe for a second no one else noticed his behavior. Disgusting. I recently heard he's no longer employed there and was fired for hitting an employee.

    Advice to Management

    Have higher standards.
