I have been working at Bed Bath & Beyond full-time (More than 5 years)

Pros

You will work hard and stay late, great if your overweight and don't like to sleep

Cons

10 Reasons not to like this company:

10. Never enough staff to help customer on the sales floor and at the registers. You will get crap from someone for either not having enough cahiers or not having enough employees on the sales floor.
 9. Outdated computer systems that are not user friendly.
 8. Big profits for company / no bonus/stock plan for any employee/managers
 7. Hypocrisy in the District/Regional Staff. They make up rules and say it is "company policy" but your the only district that has to do it, they rely on no one questioning it.
 6. Stores are Filthy. Minimal cleaning habits
 5. Training programs barely exist. There is a manual but the program really is useless in everyday practice and your expected to be fully trained the first day
 4. No real way to manage the freight. You will become accustomed to climbing ladders for at least half your shift. They have a max carton you should receive and be able to put away but it is just a number because you have to stay until your done. Like 1-2am sometimes.
 3. Raises suck- get yours on the way in because your not getting anymore.
 2. Role plays. If you like being talked down to and treated like your in a school play you may like doing role plays but I haven't met an employee who didn't cringe at the words role play.
 1. If your a manager and your sick, your screwed, you gotta work because there is nobody else to cover your shift

Advice to Management

You need to share the wealth. Let the employees have a chance to purchase stock or provide some kind of bonus program for managers/employees so they may want to stay or be invested somehow

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

    Pros

    If you have good co-workers the job can be very fun.
    Flexible hours if you are in school.
    Great place to build your sales and people skills.
    Job stability if you can put up with the drama.

    Cons

    No upward mobility, in most stores long-term associates (3+ years) have been there longer than management.
    Low starting pay and raises are laughable.
    Company focuses on what was done wrong and hardly ever rewards you for your hard work.
    If you are in school or don't have kids, prepare to work every weekend.
    Assistant managers can be very hard to work with.
    Most stores only have one to three full-time sales associates, but will work part-timers just as much without the extra pay or benefits.

    Advice to Management

    Promote from your pool of hourly associates, we know the stores and procedures better than anyone.
    Pay your hard working associates more.
