    I worked at Bed Bath & Beyond part-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    They provide adequate training and compensation

    Cons

    Hours vary too much. You will be expected to work almost full time during the busy seasons and then they will cut your hours so you don't achieve full time status.

    Advice to Management

    Open more full-time positions. You spend time and money on training associates. Unless you do more to keep them employed, this money is being wasted.

    Good opportunity to work for a retailer that everyone knows (and loves). Most people are great to work with. Fun, relatable products to work with and talk about.

    Cons

    Very little in the way of formal training or education, limited benefits, old systems, old ways of thinking.. seems like some people are "stuck"

    Advice to Management

    Get flexible, invest in your people
