    Pros

    Most coworkers are great to work with. Employee incentives are great.

    Cons

    PAY INCREASES STINK. 1-2% which could end up being 8-12 cents. Long hours if you close. Brakes are nonexsiting unless you are scheduled over 6 hours. District staff only shows up to tell you what you are doing wrong. In my 5+ years only a very few part-timers went to full time. No one ever promoted with in the store.

    Advice to Management

    Show your employees that you appreciate them by giving better pay increases.

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

    Pros

    1) When obtaining/submitting an application (which is still done on paper--surprisingly), a short, preliminary immediate interview is conducted between the applicant & manager on duty at the time. This is pos. because it connects an actual person to the piece of paper & expedites the overall hiring process. This is the only place I've ever worked at which conducts their hiring process in this manner.
    2) Each month a variety of different vendors/manufacturers offer employee incentives. During these rotating employee incentive periods, employees are able to purchase merchandise at cost, i.e. employees can buy Calphalon cookware sets at cost. On a side note, the average consumer would be shocked at what the mark up is on certain items.
    3) Ea. employee is able to designate a member of their household as a "designated shopper" & is able to receive the same 20% off all merchandise employee discount that employees receive & the employee is not required to be present when the designated shopper uses this benefit.
    4) Every Fall, there is an employee & family shopping event where the employee & the aforementioned designated shopper receive a 1 time use coupon for a day of 30% (vs. the std. 20%) off all merchandise both in store & online.

    Cons

    As the title implies, the employees are treated like slaves. I could go on about how the company is operated in a corrupt manner & various other distasteful aspects, but it would border the ranting prohibited by the community guidelines. I will hold my tongue for now, more than likely to return later & edit my statements.
