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

Pros

Bed Bath & Beyond does offer a wonderful salary and infinite ways in which to grow your career!

Cons

I worked 6 days a week and 15 hours a day. This was not because I did not perform my job well and my hourly employees were very good. This was just what it took to keep up with, not only the customer service that is demanded--which is GREAT, but also the expectations of the job. It is what it is, but some of the extreme philosophies create a revolving door for some extremely good talent. Welcome to retail.

Advice to Management

Depending on the BB&B location and its store manager, BB&B can come across as a sweatshop that at least believes in paying a very fair wage. You may want to rethink having managers announce when they have to step off the floor to go to the restroom over a walkie talkie in addition to how long you will be off the floor, and allow department managers enough off floor time to keep stockrooms together. This will not only allow for more efficient storing and pulling, which will increase sales, but also will prevent inventorying the same merchandise for 15 years that should have been marked down and zeroed out in the system long ago.

    I have been working at Bed Bath & Beyond part-time (Less than a year)

    Pros

    They work with your hours, or so they say.
    20% discount.
    Co-workers are really chill.
    If you don't know much about household items and appliances, you'll learn a lot through working here.
    Lots of training; potentially a good thing, along with really annoying.
    Great starting off pay.

    Cons

    Managers are backstabbers and will always talk behind your back.
    Never get the right amount of credit for anything.
    Extremely limited amount of hours.
    On a ladder every - single - day.
    Tons of running around.
    Only managers get full time.

    Advice to Management

    Please learn that a lot of things take time and if a request is made, know that there's a load of other things that are being done and worked on.
    Also, get better walkie-talkies. Tons of static and it's really hard to hear people.
    Hire people for actual positions, don't make them run around from one position to another unless it's requested. So annoying.
    I can't emphasize this enough: IF IT'S PEAK HOURS, DON'T HAVE ONLY A COUPLE OF PEOPLE ON THE FLOOR OR THE BARE MINIMUM! ALWAYS HAVE A NICE, EVEN AMOUNT OF DISTRIBUTED PEOPLE ON THE FLOOR! If there is however a limited amount of people on the floor, DO NOT expect your requests and projects to be done when the employee is bombarded with six different customers while also on a ladder.
