Sales assicoate (Current Employee) – Arlington, VA – December 5, 2016
My typical day at work starts out with early morning projects. After when we open my main focus is customer service. i always want to make them to have an great experience so they will return. The hardest part about my job is when a customer leaves without anything. i want to do my best in making sure they come with whatever they came to shop for. The most enjoyable part of my job Is bonding with an customer over an item we have in common. when you bond it brings the customer back and i enjoy hearing about how the product works for them.

A typical day at Bed Bath & Beyond was busy. the Management was great a very skilled. My coworkers were definitely team players. The hardest part was stocking. The most enjoyable part was meeting new people.
Great culture and a place to build communication and sales skills
Sales Associate (Former Employee) – Normal, IL – December 1, 2016
This job was very accommodating with your schedule and management was very positive. Bed Bath and Beyond puts the customer first and managers insisted we help customers over doing freight and stocking the shelves.
Typically I would answer phone calls, help customers find products, and in most cases we would help customers compare product descriptions and prices to help them make a purchase. When we weren't busy helping customers we worked on stocking shelves, and organizing inventory.
A big part of this job was to make online sales, also known as "Beyonds". In order to do this, approaching customers was key, and from there you had to identify their needs and if it wasn't available in the store you could influence them to order it in store. This helped the stores numbers and it also put you in a sales scenario, in which you could develop your sales strategy.
The job didn't offer commission, but it did help you when you received your performance review.
This job has a great environment and I also liked that it had holidays off and the company would often buy food from local restaurants for the employees.
- Free food on black friday weekend, Accomodating Schedules, Positive management, great part-time job, requesting days off were simple and easy, great way to build customer relationships
Retail in general can start to bog you down, but coworkers made it fun.
Sales Associate (Current Employee) – Shreveport, LA – November 30, 2016
This is a very friendly place to work. I have enjoyed helping customers find what they are looking for. The hours are flexible and as long as you show effort, the managers will work with you for any requests you have of them.
Morning Shifts - Clock in, Head to the front grab the reports for the department, head to the stock room check to see if we have the product if so grab it and add it to your cart to put onto the floor before the store opens, Finish reports and then fill up the store with what you found inside the stock room, Store Opens finish putting away your reports and help and greet customers when you see them. Continue this until your shift is over, Clock Out. Night Shifts - Clock in, Look on the schedule to see which department you are in for the night, head to the department clean up the department and help customers when you see them, Store Closes, Head to the back room and grab the freight to put out for the night in your department until your shift is over, Clock Out
Productive and positive concept, not always executed by management
Invoicing & Operations Associate (Current Employee) – El Paso, TX – November 29, 2016
I loved working in the office and having the option to also interact with customers and help them as well. The company fosters a great culture, unfortunately the management at each location doesn't always follow through with that.
Can be a great place to work depending on your coworkers.
Sales Associate/Keyholder/Bridal Consultant (Current Employee) – Vancouver, WA – November 29, 2016
Can be a great place to work. It is very hard to advance within the company. Yearly raises on excellent reviews are 20 to 30 cents. I have worked at three different stores with very different ways of doing things. It can be very high drama or very relaxed depending all on management. The customers for the most part are great, but also very needy because that is how we've trained them to be. It's nice to able to take care of customers and we bend over backwards for them. That said, the corporation does not go out of its way to help employees. The company is very frugal and raises are ridiculous; people will often get hired that make more than I do, and I'm a keyholder. There is a lot to do and its hard to get bored if you have a good work ethic.
Fun and excting to meet different prople on a daily basic
Retail Sale Associate/Trainer (Former Employee) – Longview, TX – November 28, 2016
I liked this job but the pay is at a stand still to long. You was able to wear several titles and no pay raise for what person was worth. The job was very interested and there was a lot to be learned. The feeling to be able to tell a customer about an item and the customer is very satisfied and happy while making their purchase was a joy.
learnig information for your own goods as well as to serve the customers better.
Being able to be knowledgeable an get paid what you was worth
