Former Employee - Department Manager - Bridal in Chicago, IL
Former Employee - Department Manager - Bridal in Chicago, IL

I worked at Bed Bath & Beyond full-time (less than a 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.
