Great Employee's - Will need to be a people person and hard worker.
Manager (Former Employee) – Suburb of Chicago,Illinois – January 22, 2017
The company use to be great! Now because of on-line sales customers are not coming into the stores as much as they use to. Staffing is low so management has to take on more than what is expected. The customer service culture is slipping because there are not enough associates to service the customers. The stores are not given the hours for correct staffing and training that is needed.
The managers and associates are wonderful people to work with. Everyone will help each other without hesitation.
Great group of employee's to work with on a daily basis. Good Vendor incentives
Management hours are long, 10 hours a days, Terrible employee turnover, managers are expected to complete their tasks, employee tasks and tend to customers, District and Regional does not acknowledge reality in the stores, They expect more than what is possible from their managers.
making sure every customer is treated and greeted with a smile. I learned a lot about coffee makers, different electronics, how to order and receive inventory. the culture of BBB was to make eveery customer feels welcomed, and when they walk out the door, feeling satisfied. The hardest part of the job was honestly doing wedding registries. The customers and BBB team was probably the most enjoyable things about the job.
Customer Service Representative (Former Employee) – Ogden, UT – January 21, 2017
I enjoyed the simple ways to handle call volumes with customers inquiry for the company's products and offers. When management would start an incentive, they would never follow through. Advancement is very rare at this company and also the pay is minimal compared to the work.
Sales Associate (Former Employee) – Chesapeake, VA – January 20, 2017
Bed Bath and Beyond was one of the best jobs I held. It was always great to see returning customers and to help them find exactly what they wanted, either in the store or out of it. Management could have been better, but the employees were always fun to be around.
Good hours, good pay, great employees
not so great management, lots of responsibilities, late night closing shifts
Fun work place and there was always something too do.
Front End Supervisor (Former Employee) – Akron, OH – January 20, 2017
While I was working at Bed Bath and Beyond, I was the front end supervisor. As the front end I was in charge of all of the cashiers, the registers, the customer service and all of the returns that would come through during my shift. Now at the close of my shift i was in charge of balancing all of the registers too the right amount. While I also would be in charge of doing the daily deposit of sales cash into the "bank". While I was working on the daily deposit my manager would be closing the rest of the store. The management at Bed Bath and Beyond was great just had a hard time, sometimes with the employees who worked on the floor. As so did I as i was the front end supervisor. Yet over all I did enjoy working at bed Bath and Beyond.
Sales Associate (Former Employee) – Overland Park, KS – January 19, 2017
If you are planning on working with very unfair, self-absorbed, and insulting management, then go right ahead and apply for a job there! When the management does not appreciate the amount of work you put in for the place, or respect you for your efforts, it is self-loathing to work in such environment. Unfortunately, if it is providing bread butter for your family you are stuck working there until you find another job with enough pay.
Same length breaks regardless of the shift time, management, and poor training
Sales Associate (Former Employee) – Naperville, IL – January 19, 2017
This was a nice company to work for. The pay was not great, but a good experience for part time work. I enjoyed assisting the customers, who were always grateful for the help. They really stress customer service here.
• Recommended merchandise based on individual requirements • Advised customers on utilization and care of merchandise • Provided advice to clients regarding particular products or services • Explained the use and advantage of merchandise to customers
Smart company looking for ways to grow besides building more stores.
Store Manager (Former Employee) – Oxnard, CA – January 19, 2017
Very fast paced work environment with constant change and new programs and goals to achieve. It was necessary to plan well and to be organized in all things, in order to achieve goals and deadlines. The hardest part of the job was working with limited resources when tasks were at a significantly higher level during different times of the year. The seasonal transitions were the best part of the job, it kept the look fresh and the employees engaged.
