Great managers and great co-workers
Front End Lead (Current Employee), Tigard, ORAugust 19, 2014
I genuinely enjoy my job. I work with great managers and awesome co-workers. I am ready to transition into a career with more stable hours and a retail environment can not provide that for me.

Productive workplace that worked well with my school schedule.
Customer Service (Current Employee), Paramus, NJAugust 15, 2014
Pros: friendly co-workers
Cons: short breaks
I work at customer service so I mainy handle returns. The management there isnt the best but I have had worse in the past. My co-workers are amazing. We are all relatively around the same age so we kind of go to each other for advice on things. The hardest part of my job is not having enough coverage when the lines become insanely long. The most enjoyable – more... part of my job is that I get to make sure that the customer leaves happy. – less

Family oriented work environment
Sales Associate/Cashier (Current Employee), Brooklyn, NYAugust 13, 2014
Pros: insurance, room for advancement, flexibility
Cons: pay, contradictory promises
A typical day of work consisted of lots of running around. Whether it be merchandising, customer service, ringing or a project, there was usually a way to keep busy. The managers were supportive and helpful. The hardest part of the job was maintaining consistency. It can be a nuisance completing the same tasks again and again every day. Another issue – more... is the fact that corporate dictates things like payroll and promotion, which would take some convincing from your managers. The best part about the job was the family vibe to it. You gain familiarity with most of the people their and build plenty of relationships. All in all, if you can get past the politics, it is a decent job. – less

Very customer service forward company.
Customer Service/Training Assistant Manager (Current Employee), Willobrook, Houston, TxAugust 12, 2014
My typical day starts at 5 am. I print our previous days sales report and pull merchandise to replenish the store accoring to the report. I clean and maintain the order of the stock rooms. I also back stock all over stock merchandise from our frieght from that day. I maintain 4 different stockrooms. I also update our database with the most current inventory – more... that we have in our stock rooms, At about 9:30-10 A.M., I switch gears, I then look up our files on all of our employees and see what classes I am able to give. I give new hire classes, which pertain to cashier training, training in our bridal dept. (How to pull a registry as well as how to create a registry), Customer service classes, also merchandise classes for the whole store. At the end of my shift I typically am the relief for our Front end/customer service lunch coverages.

I have learned many things during my employment at BBB, I can honestly say that the most important thing that I have aquired while working there is the customer service skills. I have learned how to make light in any situation, how to calm an irrate customer down, how to keep my composure during stressful situations.

The hardest part of my day is, not always having all of my fellow co-workers take part in keeping the stock rooms organized.

The most enjoyable part is being able to help a customer find a solution to their problems. – less

No Possibility For Advancement
Sales Associate/Customer Service (Current Employee), Hamden, CTAugust 11, 2014
Cons: too many managers/not enough worthwhile employees
I have worked for this employer since Mid-2007, and have been a part-time associate since then. Hours for myself can range anywhere from twelve to thirty-nine per week, depending on when I am needed or how many new associates have been hired. Employee turn-around seems to be rather high.

I have been fully trained in every possible "sales-floor position". – more... These include: Bridal Consultant, Cashier, Housewares, Lifestyles, Bedding, Bath, and Customer Service desk. I am also trained in receiving which enables me to create and maintain Plan-O-Grams, as well as fulfilling stock replenishment reports.

Although I personally enjoy the company and work ethic of most of my managers, they all have different agendas. I can be told one thing by "John Doe" and when I complete it, "Jane Doe" says it's wrong and should not have been done in the first place.

The few co-workers that I truly enjoy being around are the ones that actually seem to care about their jobs. Most of the newer employees are just there for the money, and get in the way of the "veteran" employees. They ask for more hours, and are rewarded them because they are new and have some sort of sob story to go along with it. The fellow "veterans" and I are trying our best to earn a living and get the necessary thirty hours per week to pay the bills.

I have been promised (and denied) a full-time position on several occasions. I recently spoke with one of my (many) managers about when I could possibly even be considered for full-time. They said unless I am in the right place at the right time, there is close to no chance for me to ever get it. This particular manager was hired over 15 years ago, and has district and regional managers above him that have been there less time than himself. A company that preaches about culture and service seems to have no problem hiring outside management to come and mess it all up. – less

Easy and fun
Customer Service Associate (Current Employee), Selma, TXAugust 8, 2014
Pros: great incentives and discounts
Cons: part time only, no pto or health benefits
While the customers can be a bit much (I don't think there's a reason to yell that loudly about a return), the policies make dealing with customers and issues super easy. The management can get a bit stressed but the only time it's difficult here is during the holiday season. Easily the best customer service job.

Unfortunate
Manager (Former Employee), Jacksonville NCAugust 6, 2014
Pros: customers are #1 priority
Cons: associates are never a priority
High management turnover rate. No developmental plan for part-time associates. Communication between district staff is broken. It is nice to be able to take care of the customer no matter what.

You get to know a lot of the appliances in someones home
HOUSEWARES ASSOCIATE (Current Employee), antioch caAugust 6, 2014
Pros: competitions, gain experience in retail
Cons: no one gets full time, hours go up and down
typical day consist would consist of helping customers doing task for your manger, and cleaning up the sales floor, while providing friendly customer service to all shoppers and possibly trying to get a beyond (online orders for customers).
I have learned a lot from this job Project management, customer service skills, cash handling skills, and product – more... knowledge about multiple house hold appliances.
Management could be better but overall they all mean well and do what is best for the company to progress.
The workers are the spine and the face of our company the provide the service and the sales, an are overall real good friendly people to work with they make it enjoyable.
Hardest part about bed bath An Beyond is trying to please everyone Mangers, customers and still maintain your composer, it does get challenging at times but that is why it is called work.
Best part About Bed Bath And Beyond Is getting to meet new customers every day and making their day by providing the best customer service possible. – less
