Not bad place
Sales Associate (Former Employee) –  Saskatoon, SK2 October 2018
The managers play favorites. They don't work around your schedule either and rather cut people's hours and higher new people. Those who need the hours wont get them and those who ask for smaller amount of hours will get lots.
Pros
Learn lots of new products
Cons
Not much pay and little hours.

Terrible work life balance. Good customer focus. Terrible people skills in head office leadership. Would not suggest working here if you want to see your family.

Terrible pay for hard work!!
Associate (Current Employee) –  Saskatoon, SK11 September 2018
I was informed today that no employee is allowed to book off time during "Black-out dates", those being from mid-November until early January!!!! My anniversary and my grandmothers birthday is in December and the only time I am able to go home to spend time with my family is over the Christmas holidays, but apparently those don't exist at Bed Bath & Beyond. I am happy with my co-workers, not happy with my paycheck, not happy with the "black-out dates". If you don't mind working your butt off for less than $1 over minimum wage, then definitely come work here.
Pros
Employee discounts, coworkers
Cons
minimum pay, management

Okay place, no room for advancement
Cashier and Sales Associate (Current Employee) –  Regina, SK7 September 2018
The people that I work with are all generally really kind, and I've met some amazing friends here- the management is also good for the most part. However, there is no room to move up in the company at all, no raises other than a 25 cent yearly raise no matter how many departments you're trained in, and the Christmas hours are absolutely nuts. It is a very physically demanding job, and the pay doesn't equate to the amount of work employees do. I think a lot of the problems with this company start at the top of the management chain, and there are definitely things that need to be changed to make it better for their employees. Also, a lot of the customers are really rude and get mad at employees for things that they have no control over.
Pros
Good coworkers, discount
Cons
Minimum pay for maximum work, rude customers, no room for advancement

Part-time Employee (Retail) (Former Employee) –  Richmond Hill, ON7 September 2018
-Day would always start with all clocking-in employees being huddled up and informed about the their daily tasks and what the daily budget, safety and customer standards were.
-Management is great as they would help us whenever we needed it.
-Cleaning up was the hardest part of the job.
Pros
free lunches on events
Cons
working by yourself in a lot of situations

4 Years of Work, No Advancement.
Inventory Control Clerk (Former Employee) –  Edmonton, AB3 September 2018
Low pay for the amount of work you're expected to complete.
Management is never on the same page.
Little to no job advancement, without kissing someone higher-ups butt.
Management was not understanding at all for personal struggles/time off.
Employees were wonderful.
Pros
Coworkers.
Cons
Everything else.

Excellent Customers Service at the expense of the employees
Front End Cashier (Current Employee) –  Richmond Hill, ON16 August 2018
Very, very, hard work for minimum wages.
You go up and down ladders bringing products down for customers.
Increases of hourly wages of 20-25 cents occurs once a year, no matter how hard you exceed expectations.
Lunch breaks come just before you leave for the day. You are starving
Standing for hours, feet and back hurt
Not allowed to have water bottles at your station. So thirsty.
You have to clean the bathrooms, vacuum store, wash floors and gather garbage at closing each day, disgusting

Christmas party at end of year. Food is provided but no bonuses or gifts. Sad

Good Stuff:
99% of managers and 99% staff are great
Get a lot of training before you hit the floor
Sense of Family
20% off all products
Everyone working hard to help the costumer

This store provides amazing customer service most of which is provided by the minimally paid staff!

Making this job better by:
Hire a cleaning crew to clean all area stores
Wages should start at least $1 more than minimum wages. This is not a minimal effort job.
Raises in salary should be based on performance not a standard amount
Lunch/meal break must take place no later than 3.5 hours from starting one's shift
Water bottles are allowed at your workstation
Cashiers are allowed to have stools to sit or lean on.
Pros
You get 20 per cent discount off all purchases - good thing
Cons
washing bathrooms, washing floors, collecting garbage each night

FRONT END LEAD (Former Employee) –  Edmonton, AB6 August 2018
I was able to advance within the company and yet my pay did not go up with the promotion, it was a fun work environment but there seemed to be some immaturity within the staff as in people not calling in to work when they were sick so it was a hassle finding someone to cover a shift.We were given incentives every month which was nice.
Pros
incentives
Cons
chaotic at times

Best retail job
Cashier/Sales Associate (Current Employee) –  Charlottetown, PE3 July 2018
I've been here for almost 2 years and I still enjoy it. The incentives program makes the job worth it. They feed us on large holidays and have cakes when someone is leaving or coming back. The management is amazing and I love my fellow staff. I've made great friends working there and I genuinely do love working there.
Pros
Free food, employee incentives, benefits, raises, flexible schedules
Cons
Angry customers about things beyond your control

No time to relax, Just work, projects, cash, Inventory, meetings... next day same routine
Lead Associate (Former Employee) –  Mississauga, ON13 June 2018
Day start with freight forward to floor and top & back stocking
Hurdle time - 15 to 5 min. depends who's are attending it.
Management - great learning in terms of floor planning, profit, execution, review , Projects on your own, word of appreciation and celebration on hurdles.. Great Benefits.
Tiring part is you are on your own on doing projects, on your feet all the time.
Enjoyable part is - you come across good people in work and as customers.
would recommend if your are chosen - "Retail is career for you"
Pros
Benefits and Product Incentives
Cons
less staff leads to work burden
