    Former Employee - Assistant Store Manager in Lubbock, TX

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

    Pros

    Good working hours never over 45 hours a week if you choose, Good pay if you are an external hire. The absolute best health benefits around.

    Cons

    Please see title. Little if no chance of promotion if you are in a small market with no other stores with in 30 miles. High expectations with very lean payroll module. Changed districts 3 times in four years and every district wanted something different. No consistency through out the company,

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Listen to your PT and FT associates when they have concerns and call in to complain. Let your store managers run their business and if they cant promote or hire someone that can.

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

    Pros

    -Great training -- Product knowledge is key and in most stores I find that the employees either know, or in the process of taking classes to be in the know.
    -Great Atmosphere -- It can be stressful, managers and sales associates alike, but I think we try our best to establish a fun work setting.
    -Unique to other retailers -- Anyone at any time, who's trained, can be given any task to do. If it's a manager top stocking freight, or a sales associate doing a rotation.

    Cons

    -Managers coming from the outside in sometimes have the hardest time adjusting to the work. Most managers will need to perform with ladders and heavy freight. If you're at a smaller volume store there are times where you might not have anyone on your side to manage.
    -Managers might come across as distant because of the sheer amount of work we're asked to do that doesn't always fit into the 48 hours.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    The sales associates want to be managed. Nothing is worse than having someone come in and not know what to do. It helps build morale and make the associates feel like they've added something to the store.
