❸ Cashier/Sales Associate (Former Employee) – San Mateo, CA – 23 August 2013
A typical day at Bed Bath & Beyond consisted of managing time given in order to complete projects for the store (i.e. Stocking inventory, creating displays, etc..). Amongst completing projects on the sales floor, you must always be polite, courteous and helpful to all customers that enter the store (i.e. Greeting customers, helping customers find a product, giving knowledge of the product to the customers, etc..). I've learned many things at Bed Bath & Beyond. Such as, approaching and talking to strangers in a professional friendly manner (all personality types). I learned how to be much more quick and efficient with the time I was given. The management is very practical and realistic. All managers are willing to help with anything, if needed. Managers understand what asking too much is and long as you used your time productively they always made sure to put a smile on your face and keep it there. I got along with all my co-workers. All co-workers were easy, fun and outgoing. I did not have any hard time working at Bed Bath & Beyond. Most everything was self-explanitory and could be accomplished with ease depending on how one goes about completing the task. The most enjoyable part of the job was meeting people with different backgrounds; being able to take a personality trait displayed to you and applying it when talking to another customer.
Front-End Lead (Current Employee) – Rocky View, AB – 3 April 2018
To start off, don't apply here expecting full time work. I didn't even get full time hours after a promotion to front end lead. The staff is friendly for the most part, however you do get those divorced mom's as managers who think they're so much more important than you because they manage a Bed Bath and Beyond. Luckily in my experience I've only been lucky enough to be under one of these individuals. Decent in store discount of 20% and payed days off. All in all, not the worst place to work, but not the best either. Just try not be a cashier, you'll hate your life.
20% discount, some payed days off
Some managers can be annoying to deal with, no chance of full time work
