    Pros

    pleasant place to work, good benefits, a lot of emphasis on employee training

    Cons

    can be frustrating due to low hours which results in your ringing at the registers for more than half the day. It's hard to get our own department need accomplished

    Advice to Management

    you can increase sales per transaction if there is no one on the floor to service the customers. All the training in the world wont help sell if you don't have staff on the floor to engage and service the customers

    Pros

    Great job loved everything, from training to customer service, I learned a lot about products we sold to become an expert.

    Cons

    Eliminated the position, so part time associates will have to pick up the workload. They just don't care enough about the job to replace what we did.

    Advice to Management

    You needed us! We gave the associates someone to count on and consistency turn to when senior managers were too busy to help them.

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

    Pros

    People that I worked with directly were some of the best and most hard working people I have ever met.

    Cons

    The only way to get a promotion or move up in the company is to know someone who knows someone who knows someone else. It wasn't really based on merit.

    Advice to Management

    Stop advancing peoples buddies, and look for those who go the extra mile everyday, not just while you are breathing down their necks. Also, numbers and stats don't always equate to the work people put in.
