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

    Pros

    You learn a lot about products
    Most of the people (not management) are fun to work with
    The work isn’t hard, there’s just a lot of work

    Cons

    Bad pay
    Communication between corporate and stores is pretty bad
    Corporate visits are the worst because everyone is ridiculously stressed out
    Training for product knowledge is non existent (you learn as you go)
    Not enough hiring (not enough time for things to get done, hence stressed out corporate visits)

    Advice to Management

    Pay the people that deserve it! There are plenty of places willing to pay more.
    HIRE more people!
    Corporate needs to realize that we do our best in the store. They need to not judge and criticize things that are out of our control.

    Pros

    Helping people shop and learning about products is fun.
    Their employees provide the best customer service out of any company.

    Cons

    This company does not care about its employees.
    They write you up for calling out sick.
    Management does not communicate. I was given a raise and signed for a 25 cent raise. It took over a month for it to show up on my check. It was only 20 cents. I asked multiple times for my money and I never received it.
    The schedule was never consistent. Part-time was between 8-25 hours a week. Mind you I worked another job which this caused issues.

    Advice to Management

    Set an example by being a team leader.
    Get out of your office and off your cell phone and interact with your crew and customers. I worked there for over a year and our manager was on the floor maybe 5 times.
