Pros: Great benefits; good salary
Cons: Little to no work/life balance
A typical day at work entails several different tasks, objectives and goals, ergo always having a "plan of action" and a solid routine is a must. On average, I work no less than 50 hours per week. I have many many roles in my position at Bed Bath & Beyond. Here are just a few examples of what I do on a day to day basis- albeit, no one day is the same-
I train, teach, coach and mentor new hires. This includes everything from ensuring all legal paperwork/governmental forms are filled out correctly, signed and sent to the appropriate parties, to conducting 3-day orientation, administering safety training, register training, as well as "cart-tests" to all new associates. Another one of my roles at Bed Bath & Beyond is managing our Wedding and Gift Registry program. Managing this department includes consulting our registrants', escorting them through the entire registry process; placing follow-up calls to registrants regarding their future event, ensuring they have enough items on their registry; organizing and spearheading special in-house events for registrants; managing all associates' schedules to ensure the store has ample coverage throughout the day. I also have the role of product trainer to all store associates as well. This includes administering product knowledge classes, role-playing with associates, then giving the associates selling-exams on the product knowledge they've received. I then update and file all associates' tests, documentation and certifications, then I relay this information to my superiors.
