I have been working at Bed Bath & Beyond full-time (more than 5 years)

Pros

You will work hard and stay late, great if your overweight and don't like to sleep

Cons

10 Reasons not to like this company:

10. Never enough staff to help customer on the sales floor and at the registers. You will get crap from someone for either not having enough cahiers or not having enough employees on the sales floor.
 9. Outdated computer systems that are not user friendly.
 8. Big profits for company / no bonus/stock plan for any employee/managers
 7. Hypocrisy in the District/Regional Staff. They make up rules and say it is "company policy" but your the only district that has to do it, they rely on no one questioning it.
 6. Stores are Filthy. Minimal cleaning habits
 5. Training programs barely exist. There is a manual but the program really is useless in everyday practice and your expected to be fully trained the first day
 4. No real way to manage the freight. You will become accustomed to climbing ladders for at least half your shift. They have a max carton you should receive and be able to put away but it is just a number because you have to stay until your done. Like 1-2am sometimes.
 3. Raises suck- get yours on the way in because your not getting anymore.
 2. Role plays. If you like being talked down to and treated like your in a school play you may like doing role plays but I haven't met an employee who didn't cringe at the words role play.
 1. If your a manager and your sick, your screwed, you gotta work because there is nobody else to cover your shift

Advice to ManagementAdvice

You need to share the wealth. Let the employees have a chance to purchase stock or provide some kind of bonus program for managers/employees so they may want to stay or be invested somehow

    I have been working at Bed Bath & Beyond part-time (less than an year)

    Pros

    The discount and the coworkers and, to a certain extent, the store management are fun to talk to and very approachable.Pay is not bad but wished it could be more.

    Cons

    Corporate management think they know everything about each individual store. Policies that hinder work performance. Corporate criticizing store management about problems that corporate created themselves.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Not to be so arrogant! Being flexible with each store.
