    I have been working at Bed Bath & Beyond full-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    -There is a great deal of autonomy to help customers.
    -Working with brides and new home owners to create registries was the best part of my day. I really enjoyed taking them on what was essentially a guided shopping spree!
    -In general my store was in a well to do part of an already lovely small city, so most of the customers were fun to work with, easy to sell to, and very polite.
    -Lots of opportunity to move into management since very few people can tolerate the culture of abuse.
    -If you're organized you can really shine during Back to School pack and ship season!

    Cons

    Corporate seems to be stuck in a culture of abuse. I could often hear our DM screaming profanities at our SM and OpsM from downstairs. In one year we saw 6 SMs in our district step down to less stressful dept. manager positions.
    Many dept managers were frighteningly lazy and left most of the closing duties to me - I was the CST. I can only pray other stores are better.

    Advice to Management

    Take some courses in anger management, communication, marketing, sales, and management. You'll probably see much less employee turn over. I was part of the team that set and opened my store, but by the time I moved away (and quit rather than transfer) I was the only person left from the original team.

    Pros

    Lovely customers that it's okay to give the best customer service possible

    Cons

    It's 3 weeks before Christmas and I just got my hours cut from 29 to 9.5 even though when I asked management they said they had no problems with me.

    Advice to Management

    Hope all the 20 year olds you hired for Christmas stick around.
