Former Employee - Department Manager - Bridal in Chicago, IL

I worked at Bed Bath & Beyond full-time (less than an year)

Pros

Coworkers can be fun, Great for the extrovert, respect days off, decent starting salary for recent college grads or individuals without degrees

Cons

Very time consuming/time demanding, unrealistic goals set by corporate cause lack of cohesiveness at store level, innovation/changes for the sake of changing, too much pressure on bridal business to carry the company, 10 hours days and only 30 minutes to eat, lack of payroll hours turns managers into highly paid hourly associates - hinders manager success

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Enforce and support processes that support REALISTIC goals, stop cutting hours, let managers be managers, treat employees as people -> not cogs in a machine.

    I worked at Bed Bath & Beyond part-time (less than an year)

    Pros

    Excellent customer service training, very fair managers. Met some amazing employees who I am now friends with. Great focus on teaching employees the products.

    Cons

    Multi tasking, often too few cashiers in the front to meet demand, outdated computer system. Certain Managers had a very strict regimen, while others were more relaxed. Made for confusion, occasionally.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Hire more cashiers, update computer system

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

    Pros

    Fantastic, customer satisfaction-driven environment, where you can do just about anything to get what a customer needs.

    Cons

    Not the easiest to climb up the ranks. Annual raises are not impressive if you're hourly.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Take better care of your employees.
