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

Pros

Easy work
Generally Flexible Schedule
Decent pay for a teenager
Clear objectives and goals within the company
Co-Worker drama is around but at a low roar
Coworkers generally get along
Generally a good part time job or full time job if you aren't the primary income in the family

Cons

Management is hit or miss
Customers can be snobby
A lot is asked from a small work force
Awkward pay raises
EXTREMELY hard to move up
Hard to find coverage if you cant work hours because of lack of workers and availability diversity

Advice to Management

Be more caring and understanding and a little less rude to lower managers and associates. We are humans not super robots that can be 100% perfect all the time.

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

    Pros

    Most other associates are great to work with! Some of the lower level managers are great too! I liked it here when I started, but then common sense took over and I realized that I was no one, just a face being asked to do unrealistic amounts of work!

    Cons

    Upper management, to be exact, district managers are jerks and don't understand how to speak to people!

    Advice to Management

    The Huntington, NY store is used as a training store for management to move on! For the most part that's good, because these "trainees" can be real jerks! They come here hoping to make themselves look good to upper management and treat other associates as their whipping boys! They become snitches running to management for every little thing!

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

    Pros

    20% discount off everything. Most customers were respectable. I made it fun to work there.

    Cons

    My location had some of the rudest cashiers. I think they worked there because they lacked formal education and had no choice. Lifting merchandise was difficult at times.

    Advice to Management

    Simply care about your employees.
