    Current Employee - Department Manager 

    I have been working at Bed Bath & Beyond full-time for more than 5 years

    Pros

    Great place to hone merchandising skills; Have great tools to help you how to manage your department and make good business decisions base on sales trends and the have a good rotation of new items into the stores.

    Cons

    Hardly any time to use/implement the tools they give you; plan making needs to be in the middle of sales floors on numerous occasions while helping customers. Plus there are times that you can feel like an "over paid" stock guy.

    Coworkers are awesome, they make the job possible. most managers are reasonable, decent pay.

    They don’t give consistent hours, or have enough staff, managers sometimes get upset when people call out sick, even if it’s valid. Corporate has decided that we will be open thanksgiving which is awful.

    Former Employee - Department Manager 

    I worked at Bed Bath & Beyond full-time

    Pros

    Flexible scheduling for the most part and good time off benefits.

    Cons

    Dated management style. You might move up but then get ready to be moving around to different stores every six months. Part-time employees get away with anything and the full-timers are left to deal with it all.

    I worked at Bed Bath & Beyond part-time for more than a year

    Pros

    - flexible hours - great discount - great people - able to change locations - every manager was different but most of them supportive and great

    Cons

    - Asked to change position, wanted the challenge of being a lead, and was told that It is possible but to continue to show that I can handle that position. Did for months but was continuously given the run around.
