Company was not good

Overall, I did not hate working here, but the company itself never supported us. Regional managers were usually jerks and even kept one of our managers from becoming the store manager because they "did not have enough management experience." Even though they had been running the store for about 4-5 months before they found a replacement.

Back breaking work

Employees worked their tails off at this place with no appreciation from the top, but in the end they closed and left a bunch of people jobless and no severance.

Bed Bath & Beyond

Truthfully, working at this company was an experience I'll never forget. There were plenty of things to do to stay busy. You'd definitely have to wear multiple hats within the course of a day. Things got a bit overwhelming towards the end, mostly because we were severely understaffed and experienced much higher customer traffic. Coming in and working with the staff always made things better. The management team was great and really cared about us as employees.

Typical retail experience

If you have a good management team it’s great! It’s the typical retail experience. The pay could be better for all that they ask of managers. Store closing was a terrible experience!

Productive & Fun Workplace

It was a very cool place to work! All was great until we had no merchandise to sell to the customer. We were also held accountable to meet all of the metrics with out product. Company went bankrupt and all of the locations closed.

It was a wonderful place to work!

What is the best part of working at the company?They encouraged employees to work as a team and I always felt like upper management had my back. They were also very good about working with my schedule. I felt like a valued employee.What is the most stressful part about working at the company?Working when we didn't have enough staff to be able to properly assist our customers.What is the work environment and culture like at the company?Completely focused on working as a team. We had each other's back and had a family feel working there. Very respectful of employees and if I needed time off due to a family emergency, it wasn't an issue. They told me, "Family First!"What is a typical day like for you at the company?I would arrive early for my shift so that I could mentally prepare and be at my Cash Register on time. I'd clean my counter and prepare my work area so I could operate efficiently. Greeted my co-workers and started accepting customers greeting them with a smile. Asked them if they found everything okay and if not did what I could to assist them in getting an item. Called for assistance when necessary. Scanned and bagged items accepting all forms of payment.

Was good until it wasn't

There was way too much work expected and not enough staff/ payroll to get it done. They kept blowing smoke up or butts that everything was going good and then dropped the bomb on a Sunday that the Stores were closing.


Good people

It's retail

Over worked employees, treated employees poorly in general. The pay was terrible compared to the amount of work. There wasn't a whole lot of opportunities to be promoted

Productive and fun workplace with a friendly environment

I loved rearranging each room to make it look perfect and getting to meet different customers and help them find their dream item for their home. Mostly I enjoyed straightening and making the store look perfect. The hardest part of the job was having enough people to work the store so that every task could be accomplished. Management was great and helped any way they could. I learned a lot about products while being there making it easier to sell to customers.

One of the worse places to work at. Managers were horrible they caused a lot of drama behind the scenes to the point where the majority of newly hired employees (including me) quit within 4 months of working there because of how terrible the work environment was.

Management amazing, pay eh and company went under

I loved working at bed bath. I’ve had the best management team to work with. But the oh was sub par and the company went under without severance and very little notice.

Would have been great if corporate didn’t run it to the ground

Loved the majority of the customers. Loved coworkers. Scheduling flexibility was great. Management in store was very supportive. Just a shame that corporate didn’t care about any of the people running the stores and we all got screwed in the end.

Best retail job I’ve had

I would there for a year while in school. As far as retail goes, this was my favorite job. The managers cared, the worked with my school schedule, and the customers were great 90% of the time.

This company started out wonderful but has been run into the ground for a long time. Absolutely terribly upper management. I wouldn't recommend working here to anyone.
