Store & corporate level: same issues: not expanding with employees in mind: heavy turnaround: too much product

I worked at Bed Bath & Beyond full-time (more than 10 years)

Pros

Thrilling, fast paced environment, consumer focused, sales and liberal return policy adds profit to business. Expansion done without borrowing money. Coupons! Active, hard work. Comfortable corporate cubes.

Cons

Salaried entire time with company. Better sense of teamwork at store level than in corporate environment. Sloppy planning and issue resolution that confuses and frustrates many. No bonuses, no recognition.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Plan ahead, make employee part of that process, compensate and reward with bonuses.

    Constantly hiring... for slave labor

    I have been working at Bed Bath & Beyond part-time (more than 3 years)

    Pros

    1) When obtaining/submitting an application (which is still done on paper--surprisingly), a short, preliminary immediate interview is conducted between the applicant & manager on duty at the time. This is pos. because it connects an actual person to the piece of paper & expedites the overall hiring process. This is the only place I've ever worked at which conducts their hiring process in this manner.
    2) Each month a variety of different vendors/manufacturers offer employee incentives. During these rotating employee incentive periods, employees are able to purchase merchandise at cost, i.e. employees can buy Calphalon cookware sets at cost. On a side note, the average consumer would be shocked at what the mark up is on certain items.
    3) Ea. employee is able to designate a member of their household as a "designated shopper" & is able to receive the same 20% off all merchandise employee discount that employees receive & the employee is not required to be present when the designated shopper uses this benefit.
    4) Every Fall, there is an employee & family shopping event where the employee & the aforementioned designated shopper receive a 1 time use coupon for a day of 30% (vs. the std. 20%) off all merchandise both in store & online.

    Cons

    As the title implies, the employees are treated like slaves. I could go on about how the company is operated in a corrupt manner & various other distasteful aspects, but it would border the ranting prohibited by the community guidelines. I will hold my tongue for now, more than likely to return later & edit my statements.
