    Current Employee - Senior Department Manager in North Miami Beach, FL
    Current Employee - Senior Department Manager in North Miami Beach, FL

    I have been working at Bed Bath & Beyond full-time (more than a year)

    Pros

    Will pay a very good rate for the type of mindless work they hire experienced managers for.
    Great customer service
    Busy stores. Will learn alot fast
    Decent co-workers-most really work hard and deserve better.

    Cons

    They advertise for store managers and district managers. But their goal is to hire these experienced retail pros and then give them no one to manage. They expect you to train yourself and do 90% of the grunt work. Promises of promotions are dangled like a carrot but few last people will last the two to three years for a promotion. The ladder climbing in a busy store is a killer. Had to ask permission to use the restroom! Treated like a complete idiot as is everyone else.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    You are the best at luring quality managers in and then burning them out. It is degrading but people need the money and the over 50 managers need the job opportunity. Poor quality upper management ruins any chance at keeping good managers. It will catch up to you someday.

    Former Employee - Senior Department Manager in Birmingham, AL
    Former Employee - Senior Department Manager in Birmingham, AL

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

    Pros

    Benefits, Stability & Debt Free Company

    Cons

    The absolute worst training programs that I have ever encountered. 50 hour weeks are the minimum. Labor modeling over the past 3 years has erroded the quality of life that previously existed for management. Low upward mobility in BB&B. The segment to work in is Buy Buy Baby (the expansion area). Annual raises 0-2.2% will be the norm. Hire on and stay at the Department Manager Level.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Break the model and reinvest labor back into the locations to bolster the Customer Service Levels back to when BB&B was the leader in the field.

    Disapproves of CEO
