Customer Service Manager/Sales Associate (Former Employee) – Sterling, VA – May 24, 2017
Wonderful work experience. Cross training in most departments gave the full persecutive on how each department works, and comes together to create the store experience for each customer. Managers were knowledgeable on all products and would assist without hesitation; which in return allowed for each associate to learn a new lesson each day as products were constantly evolving. At times the hours were long, including over night inventory team. Some times may have put a strain on the legs when lifting, but it was all part of the job.
No opportunity for advancement or long term security

Do not work for this place as it does not care for its employees. There are next to no opportunities for raises, promotion, or flexibility in scheduling. If you want a job that cares more for customers than employees...work here.
higher than minimum wage
discount is the same for customer, 20% off an item

I Was Furious Because You Making a Joke Out Of My Father Health..... Not Cool

Managers have very high expectations but don't expect them to stay long. I had 4 different general managers and probably 10 different floor managers during my 2 and a half years there. They expect you to meet sales goals but we don't have even close to enough customers to meet them. They also limit all associates to under 25 hours.
Customer Service Specialist/Sales Associate (Current Employee) – Eugene, OR – June 8, 2018
If you want something relatively easy, and pays minimally, this job would totally work for you. The store I worked in felt like it was falling apart at the seams, but it meant no one really cared what you did.
Cashier/Customer Service (Former Employee) – Jenkintown, PA – June 7, 2018
I really enjoyed working at Bed Bath. It was a great experience for me to learn how to be an business and salesman while strengthening my social skills and ability to interact with people as customers.
Kind staff, nice working in the community, familiar faces, great coworkers, nice work relationships.
Can be very slow paced and boring at times but good customers and friendly coworkers can help time pass
Cashier (Former Employee) – Downers Grove, IL – June 7, 2018
Although at times shifts got long because not many customers were coming in, Bed Bath and Beyond has a cooperative environment that wasn’t very competitive. Everyone was trying to help each other out and there was a healthy work environment.
You are busy and active but it is a pleasant atmosphere
Sales Associate (Former Employee) – Jenkintown, PA – June 7, 2018
I worked part time so there were only certain amount of hours I was there. I would come in the morning and put my things in a locker. I I was then ready to go to the register to get started with my day. I did take some time off to eat lunch. I really enjoyed talking to the customers while checking them out. You are busy but you are active which I like.
Sales (Current Employee) – Oxford, AL – June 6, 2018
Fun place to work. Great atmosphere. Opportunity to work all different positions so as to not be stuck doing the same thing. Flexible scheduling . Only down fall is the pay. I have worked there for a year now, and have moved up to receiving and as a key holder and I was only given a $.20 raise. I'm 43 and don't even make $10 an hour. I can always leave, but I enjoy the people.
Pay is low and training, although offered, it is often rushed and not fully dedicated.
Sales Associate/Cashier (Former Employee) – Los Angeles, CA – June 6, 2018
While at Bed Bath and Beyond I always had various task to complete but never given a set direction per say; this is how I am most comfortable working I feel I work much better when given the freedom to use reasoning skills. The company had also bee very flexible with me being a full time student that goes to school out of state.
Cashier/Associate (Current Employee) – Christiana, DE – June 5, 2018
Nothing ever stays the same long in Bed Bath and Beyond, everything is always changing. New things always coming in, always changing the location of things on the wood. Like every place there are there ups and downs.
