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

    Pros

    Some store management is capable and competent and works well with others, some is just there to collect a check and has no interest in working with folks to see that they are productive and encouraged to improve and advance

    Cons

    Staff paid poorly, but advances are sometimes given for good performers. Varies from store to store. Scheduling is all over the board. Many staff members work varying shifts and might close one night (late) and open (very early) the next morning. Makes it hard to get sufficient sleep and make plans with family and friends.

    Advice to Management

    Root out slackers and reward those who contribute and you could excel.

    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.
