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 Management

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.

    Pros

    They work with your hours, or so they say.
    20% discount.
    Co-workers are really chill.
    If you don't know much about household items and appliances, you'll learn a lot through working here.
    Lots of training; potentially a good thing, along with really annoying.
    Great starting off pay.

    Cons

    Managers are backstabbers and will always talk behind your back.
    Never get the right amount of credit for anything.
    Extremely limited amount of hours.
    On a ladder every - single - day.
    Tons of running around.
    Only managers get full time.

    Advice to Management

    Please learn that a lot of things take time and if a request is made, know that there's a load of other things that are being done and worked on.
    Also, get better walkie-talkies. Tons of static and it's really hard to hear people.
    Hire people for actual positions, don't make them run around from one position to another unless it's requested. So annoying.
    I can't emphasize this enough: IF IT'S PEAK HOURS, DON'T HAVE ONLY A COUPLE OF PEOPLE ON THE FLOOR OR THE BARE MINIMUM! ALWAYS HAVE A NICE, EVEN AMOUNT OF DISTRIBUTED PEOPLE ON THE FLOOR! If there is however a limited amount of people on the floor, DO NOT expect your requests and projects to be done when the employee is bombarded with six different customers while also on a ladder.
