Not for Everyone

Department Manager - Bridal (Former Employee)
Chicago, IL

I worked at Bed Bath & Beyond full-time for less than a year

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

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

No, I would not recommend this company to a friend – I'm not optimistic about the outlook for this company
