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

Pros

Flexible company
Fun environment
Good starting pay
Fast paced

Cons

Very hard to get full time
Very hard to move up
They don't promote from within
Raises are very small
If you have good senior managers, it can be a really fun/great place to work. But if you have lazy seniors, or your district manager is cheap, then it can be really frustrating.

Advice to Management

Promote from within more.

    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.
