    Pros

    Good pay, flexible hours. Management is engaged and works along with you . Get a good amount of hours especially during peak times

    Cons

    If it's not customer service related then it gets put on the back of the shelf. Customer service and keeping a lot of product in stock seem like the only important things.

    Pros

    Most employees and managers are friendly and were helpful to me when I was learning how to cashier and work the register. Employees get a 20% discount on all purchases, and due to the liberal coupon policy most customers are happy, so dealing with rude customers is few and far between. Hours are flexible if you want to work part time, and you get bonus pay for doing "beyond stores" which means ordering something for a customer online.

    Cons

    The computers used at each register are very old and a lot of tasks are done by manually typing in numbers and whatnot. Training for most employees is mediocre, and there are little problems you learn to work your way around as a cashier, for example you must scan all the 20% coupons being used before you apply a $5.00 coupon, otherwise you have to void everything out. Another thing to note is signing for receipts is done on paper so therefore you have to psychically put all the receipts in an organizer and make sure to straighten them out at the end of the day.

    Advice to Management

    Employee training needs improvement, far too many employees start working with limited knowledge of what is required for the job.

    Pros

    Low stress work environment
    People are really nice, non aggressive work culture
    Stable company

    Cons

    No work flexibility, WFH is not widely accepted
    Minimum employee benefits such as maternity leave, 401k after 12 months of emplyment, pre tax travel, vacation days
    Flip side of having a low stress work environment is an environment where there is minimal requirement to excel and push yourself. Things move slowly at BBB.
    Minimal job progression
    Lack of trust to share information, it's difficult to get information at times which impacts on your performance in the job

    Advice to Management

    To retain the current generation of employees e.g. Gen X and millennials you need to review company policies and modernize. Way of working from 20 years ago is now outdated. To remain competitive there needs to be changes

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

    Pros

    The sales position overall was a straight-forward job with proper training and development. The employees were helpful in most situations and management was helpful and reasonable in most situations.

    Cons

    I was terminated for helping a customer retrieve a comforter set from a top shelf in the store when no other employees were present in the "soft side" area of the store. The safety precaution is to use a "spotter" when you climb a ladder and I had no other employee to spot me. he customer came to me for help and I couldn't refuse to help. At the time, there were no employees nor managers in the area so I did what I could on my own. On the way down, with the comforter set, a manager noticed me climbing down and I was reported and terminated the following shift. It is a shame because I only wanted to help.

    Advice to Management

    It is good that you care for employee and customer safety, yet sometimes you should consider the circumstances and possible consequences of customer dissatisfaction and even customer retention.
