Amazing Work Environment
Cashier (Former Employee) –  Kitchener, ON5 May 2019
Employers genuinely care and listen to concerns. Cake is brought in for birthdays, and snacks are provided for store events. A tight knit group of people, who are friendly and welcoming.

Cashier/Customer Service (Former Employee) –  Calgary, AB3 May 2019
The individuals and environment that they provide at Bed Bath and Beyond is lovely. It's incredibly hard to get fired from this job if you tried, as the managers don't blame you for chatting occasionally during downtime when there are few customers.

A Great Place to work
Associate (Former Employee) –  Waterdown, ON14 April 2019
It is a great place to work. Really liked the people I worked with. At times very hard to balance work and life. A lot of work to do but no time given to complete. Expectations are tough to meet

Voicing work concerns to superiors is like talking to a wall
Sales Associate (Former Employee) –  Abbotsford, BC9 April 2019
I worked at BBB for over two years and originally thoroughly enjoyed my job. I was always getting the amount of hours I wanted and I loved the people I worked with. Unfortunately, overtime, things went completely downhill. Yearly employee reviews and raises are meant to be conducted and months went by and so many of us had not received ours. Instead, individuals who do much less work and had worked at this company for many years less get promoted more than once! To expand further on this, individuals who have worked for the company since the store has opened actually make less money than somebody going on their second year. On top of no promotions or raises, there are members of management that make the work environment highly anxiety ridden with condescending comments, rude remarks and having outbursts in front of customers which is extremely embarrassing and uncomfortable as staff and customers.

Due to these issues, so many people quit and we ran short staffed for months, including Christmas time, which made even more people quit because we were all being overworked and were completely exhausted. This company is great if you like working tirelessly while head office sits in the office and ignores the rest of us. Their concern lies with the appearance of the store and could care less about the people that actually work to make it look good - They will walk past you without even saying hello. If you are hired for one position such as a cashier, expect to also be required to be able to do every other position in the store due to a lack of staff. DO NOT ever expect a single
  more... weekend off.

Talking to a manager about concerns will do nothing even if more than four people address the same concerns. If you decide to also contact human resources, don't bother because you will only get an email saying concerns were discussed but nothing is being done.

If head office was not completely useless, the store might still have all its old staff, concerns would be addressed, wages would be based on performance and seniority instead of favoritism and being anxious at work due to higher ups would not be an issue.

Good people to work with, but the management is messed up
Customer Service & Front End (Current Employee) –  Ottawa, ON18 March 2019
There is so much I have to say, but in summary the people are really good to work with, but the management is very poor. Don't expect too much from them because they don't care about you...they only use you when they need you.

No seniority, no safety,
WeddingConsultant, Sales Associate (Part-time) (Current Employee) –  Saskatoon, SK11 March 2019
In the beginning it was a wonderful job. Everyone would respect each other and we would all go about our days happy. Of course that only lasted 6 months. After working here for a entire year, constantly earning the most orders every week, personally earning that sest-pool thousands upon thousands of dollars. they currently have me at 4 hours a week after a full years of near full time hours. Completely without warning. So let me warn you ahead of time. Dont get comfortable if you do get hired and DO NOT think you're safe because the word "seniority" to them doesn't exist. Just one great example of this is New hires have complete seniority
if you are 2 weeks into the job and you decide to be late or abscent without letting anyone know, don't worry you wont get fired like at any other job in life. just stay home eat ice cream like jasmine and drew and you'll get more hours than someone whose never missed a day.
Pros
Great co workers and product knowledge
Cons
No seniority, managers are "Elusive and Unreliable", no sense of accomplishment.

Toxic and disrespectful Management
Sales Associate/Drapery Specialist (Former Employee) –  Richmond Hill, ON10 March 2019
BBB Richmond Hill's management is disrespectful and inconsiderate of all of their employees. They are quick to judge and talk trash about their employees in front of their customers. There is no room for growth or a reasonable pay raise for any deserved effort. They always mess up the schedule, every single week they are revising and revising until there is no one working on the floor... its a real mess. I honestly beg you to stay away from this place, and you will know why when you get the job and instantly see it for what it is.
Pros
learn how to stand up for yourself
Cons
everything

Would never recommend.
Cashier (Current Employee) –  Saskatoon, SK1 March 2019
Terrible company to work for. Consistently receiving conflicting information on things. Seniority apparently means nothing to them; giving new hires more hours than employees that have been with them since store set up. Cut people’s hours to as low as 4 hours a week. Don’t give their cashiers return codes so you are always waiting for a manager which makes it look like you can’t do your job and leaves customers annoyed.
Cons
Cut hours relentlessly

Tolerable
Part-Time Associate (Former Employee) –  Markham, ON31 January 2019
It was fun at the beginning, then it all went downhill when 'The Main Office' started implementing pointless duties . Also, they expect 100% open availability yet only hand out a one or two 3.5hour shifts a week.
Pros
20% discount on everything
Cons
Shifts are few and hard to come by, Never enough staff scheduled to effectively run the store, Micromanaging

Productive and relaxed work place
Senior Receiver (Current Employee) –  Victoria, BC16 January 2019
Received different vendors throughout the day and at scheduled times. Was left mostly alone to receive stock, price, put away and stock as necessary. Management was always available to answer questions and suggest other ways of doing things. The hardest part of the job was not having enough personnel at key periods to assist in other duties.
Pros
Great work place
Cons
Not enough staff at times
