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

    Pros

    Great training, district supervisor takes time to ensure employees are happy with the management at their current stores, classes on merchandise are very informative.

    Cons

    Not enough hours (sometimes half of part-time hours), not much room to wiggle or grow

    Advice to Management

    Nothing. It's just retail, so I understand why there isn't much room to improve.

    Managers need to communicate better with each other and that will translate to the associate.

    I have been working at Bed Bath & Beyond full-time (More than 10 years)

    Pros

    Pretty flexible work schedule. Pretty decent pay if you ask for it. A lot of the fellow managers are great.

    Cons

    Hard work with very little payroll. Ridiculous amounts of freight are brought into the stores on a daily basis, it's like watching an episode of hoarders. 10 hour work days are very tiring. They are not making the right advances to counteract online shopping.

    Advice to Management

    Regional and District staff needs to be more appreciative of their employees and managers. You only see them every so often and all they do is beat you down.

    Pros

    Very hands on all the way to store manager, you will be busy every minute working here, multi tasking is the key.

    Cons

    Very little payrole hours to work with.
    Managements hands are tied behind their back.

    Advice to Management

    Instead of cutting payroll every time the stock goes down, try looking at your ridiculous return policy that most customers abuse.
