Retail Associate (Former Employee), Rochester, NY – December 22, 2014
A typical day at work consisted of checking out customers, and counting till at end of shift. The management team was understanding and caring. The day also consisted of daily inventory and restocking shelves and displays. The co-workers were cooperative and responsive which allowed for a smooth work day.
Great co-workers and a fast paced work environment.
Sales floor associate (Current Employee), Oklahoma City, OK – December 19, 2014
a typical day at work involves filling a room with required merchandise, and helping any and all customers that need assistance. I've learned a lot from there considering i've been moved all over the store, from the cookware/cleaning departments to sheets/pillows/personal care departments. My co-workers are amazing and i consider some of them to be – more... family. The hardest part of the job would be balancing a task at hand and customer assistance. as for the most enjoyable part, that would have to be the synergy between all of the employees being able to help a multiple customers throughout a day. – less
Receiver/Stocker (Current Employee), New York, NY – December 16, 2014
A typical for a receiving associate is usually walking into a mess. Very disorganized and you'll spend quite sometime cleaning up after everyone else. You have to adjust to working fast in a small area where there isn't much for you to move at all. You have to be a quick thinker because 9 times out 10 nothing goes according to plan. Management is very – more... iffy at times. Would I say if they are reliable? not really. When Things are getting out of hand, we find ourselves on our own trying to make things happen. That's one thing that I actually like about the job. It showed me that I can still get the job done no matter what. The one thing I really dislike is the lack of support. receiving is the most important part of that store, but when it comes to asking for help, sometimes you'll be left with your hand out. – less
Very busy especially the holidays. I learned that no matter what you do at bed bath and beyond the customer always comes first. I love my managers they go above and beyond. My co-workers are such an easy crowd to get along with and will help you when needed. There isn't a hard part of my job. Most enjoyable part is getting to meet new faces that come – more... into the store and listen to their stories. – less

Housewares Sales Associate / Cashier (Former Employee), Oceanside, CA – December 12, 2014
I worked for this company on two different occasions. This place I had and still have no complaints about. The management staff at the time were the best managers I had ever dealt with. Everyone was understanding and worked toward the mission statement.
Front-End Supervisor (Current Employee), Pennsylvania – December 8, 2014
Pros: meeting new and exciting people
Cons: no room for advancement
My day begins 2 hrs before the store is ready to open. I start in the clearance department making sure it is priced and tagged appropriately from merchandise shipped from other stores. I then head to the front to open the system and registers for the store to open. I register brides and do online orders for our customers. My co-workers are friendly, – more... patient and motivated. I enjoy helping customers and making sure their experience in our store is the best one. Management should communicate and enforce the rules better. I've learned to never say no and that an unhappy customer is unacceptable. – less
Sales Associate (Current Employee), MS – December 8, 2014
Pros: easy job, friendly coworkers, employee discount, good shifts
Cons: short breaks, understaffed
I'm a full-time student who works about 20 hours a week here and for the most part, I love it. The atmosphere is very laid-back and most everyone is very friendly with each other. My day consists of zoning the store, helping customers find things, ordering items for customers, bringing stuff down on ladders, and running the cash register when needed.
The – more... only complaint I have is that I've actually witnessed one of the managers, on multiple occasions, being incredibly rude to customers, but there isn't much I can do or say about that. He's also just not a very pleasant person in general, but I'm sure people like him are going to come along at any place you work at. – less
Customer Service Associate (Current Employee), Providence, RI – December 4, 2014
They are great its a fun place to work at. But its not consistent with hours to employees as well as customers. You can be dead one minute or whole shift then completely busy the next. But it also keeps you on your toes because you have to keep an eye out for if there is counterfeit bills and if there is theft as well
Customer Service Supervisor (Current Employee), Concord, NC – December 2, 2014
Pros: discount and incentive programs are beneficial
Cons: promotion is difficult if not impossible, hours are erratic, no accountability
Bed Bath & beyond is a very demanding company to work for. It is not a bad company to work for, otherwise I would not have stuck with them for 10 years. I have learned a lot over the years, merchandising, customer service, receiving, ordering etc. My biggest complaint is that they do not promote from within the way they should. I had been promised a – more... promotion over a year ago. I woke up at 3AM for months going into work early, staying late. I did everything asked of my old store manager only to have this store manager leave before I saw any final result for my future. I was given a new store manager only to have to start from scratch. If you think you are making any progress, think again. They will replace every manager in the store; sometimes multiple managers within a year. I am looking for another opportunity because I honestly feel like I have no future with this company. They prefer to hire management from outside sources as opposed to rewarding loyalty and hard work. – less
Model, sales associate, assist costumers (Current Employee), New York, NY – December 2, 2014
a typical day at work would be organizing anything that's not in place, helping out guests, helping others with their job assignments. the hardest part of the job was flexibility in your schedule and the best was working with my team members and working on projects.
