I’m a current GM for Babies R Us and a DM came in today and wanted to setup an interview for next week. Is BBB a good Company to work for? He wanted to start me out in a Bed Bath and Beyond and possibly move over to Buy Buy Baby if things go well... read more

Topics regarding layoffs at Bed Bath & Beyond
The news that Toys R Us will be closing all of its stores nationwide is horrible, with so many people losing their jobs. But as far as Bed Bath & Beyond is concerned this is good news. This can literally mean fewer or even no layoffs in the following... read more
What happens to medical coverage for those who have been laid off by Bed Bath & Beyond? Is it discontinued immediately, or is there some kind of a transition period given as an option? Medical is my biggest fear when it comes to layoffs. Other than... read more
My source claims April, to coincide with earnings. I can tell you that THE FORCE has schedules intact looking out two weeks in our store on the West Coast. Whatever, if anything, happens, I'm not feeling March for any theatrics. Just bumping it up... read more
There was so much talk about March layoffs at BB&B, but apart from somebody saying there would be some this week (if I'm not mistaken, there were none,) all talk of it died down. Do we know what's actually going on? Will there be a round of layoffs... read more
So the RVP DP has sent out an email saying tomorrow will be employee appreciation day. We get donuts and bagels in the morning and snacks in the afternoon. Is this some way for him to feel better about himself after this next layoff?
I don’t have any info other than managers here in the Midwest think second round of layoffs are coming this week so they went in short term disability to at least get 60 percent of their check and can’t be laid off if they are on FMLA. I don’t know... read more
Our ASM was let go this morning. I’m not sure if it was a layoff or termination, but this leaves us with SM, one OPS, one DS and one FT with keys. RHR and DHR were both in the store last week as well as the DM. This is crazy - we are stretched thin... read more
It took me 4 months to land another job! Very happy there and hope others find work soon. I have another manager friend that it took her 6 months to land. BBB does not care!
Yes you can be laid off while on flma!! As long as the lay off is unrelated to the reason for flma. You ASM’s trying to escape being laid off, it won’t work, the axe is coming down! Take it for the team like we did in August, poor poor mgrs it’s not... read more
Something is definitely going to happen this week. I can feel it. HR, DM and DP have all been in our stores within the past 2 weeks. No motivation to do anything working for a company who doesn’t value its employees. This s---s!!
We were just visited by our RM a few weeks ago and during the visit he was talking about hiring and keeping good talent and the question was asked if BBB would be giving any incentive bonuses to key full-time positions as many other companies are... read more
Something is about to happen because all the higher ups at corporate met with all the regional HRs. I’m hoping this isn’t going to affect the Union campus in any way.
Does anyone know what stores are closing in March? I’ve heard about Albuquerque, Laredo, Meridian, a store in Arizona (unknown city), but I was wondering if anyone had a better list or knew of any other stores.
Are you a long time BBB employee? Is your schedule changing out of the blue? I want to hear from you. Long time associates at my buddy's store are having their schedules completely changed. Changed to the point where it's no where close to their... read more
Our SM hardly ever works weekends...finds a reason either family sick or some other b---s---...makes rest of us cover. Must be nice to never work weekends get paid full sick time for like 2, yes TWO, lol weeks of flu...omg really??? Just let rest of... read more
The DM from HR came to our store today and will also be there tomorrow. I’ve worked for the company for almost four years and this is only the second time it’s happened; previous visit was long before the layoffs. DM spent most of the time on the... read more
Does anyone truly know what’s going on or about to happen? Our DM keeps making comments during store walks about “trimming the fat” and how he could just fire us. Not a fun work environment anymore at all. He also keeps making comments about how they... read more
So it's apparent we've all seen dramatic changes in our stores. No matter where, volume, or beyond store production. Everyone is getting affected. I've heard many rumors in store level with district level on a new world coming? All that I can puzzle... read more
Big changes in job titles...what is the point?
It is really VERY sad to see what has happened to BBB! Long ago, and for a while, it was a great company to work for. So many people let go, whom I am sure some were old timers that helped make the company grow. Who helped make BBB a great place to... read more
This week all the RVPs and RMs were in corporate for a multi day meeting. Does anyone know what it was for?
I here that these are opening in the Vegas market. Is it opening anywhere else? What exactly is the concept and layout?
Everyone bashing the company needs to get real. You all are probably terrible, lazy, disengaged associates who feel entitled to more than what you deserve. I have been with the company for 17 years and have worked in 3 different parts of the country... read more
Find it super odd that the specific thread about the Houston Market and the world taking conditions there with “D” and “R” has been removed. .....
BB&B is closing one of the Albuquerque stores, and it looks like this is just a preview of things to come. I'll be surprised if we don't start getting weekly notifications on closing stores this year, together with more layoffs in the remaining ones... read more
February 1st 2018 we're required to always wear black shirts, and on weekends black pants matching said shirts. I'd really like to know the genius in management that came up with this idea. With the impending layoffs and dismissals coming, I suppose... read more
Days are growing very grim and gray with such a few days until massive lay offs again are coming for most of the remaining mgrs. Found this in another thread. I was wondering if this was just somebody venting and predicting what's about to come or is... read more
In the mid Atlantic DMs have just been directed to promote several hourly associates to emergency keyholder positions in preparation for the pending layoffs. We don’t know yet how they are going about the layoffs but we believe they will drop the... read more
I’m really sick of hearing Store Mgrs and District Mgrs tooting their own horn about how hard they work and worked to get to their positions. Hey you got their riding the backs of the department mgrs you just let go. You are a bunch of bragging... read more
Bed Bath and Beyond can’t seem to get their stock out of the toilet!! I can’t feel sorry for them, poor management members won’t be getting any richer. Do I sound bitter, yes I am , the company was built on department mgr backs, we missed family... read more
Funny watching Regionals and District office dwellers find new titles for those completely unqualified for new positions designed to keep them safe for next round. A ten hour day paying them $$$$ to sit in office doing almost nothing. Here's a... read more
The latest I’m hearing is 286 stores closing and 1100 people being laid off as a result. Anyone else hearing this?
Everyone that was laid off needs to get down to the local EEOC office and file a complaint or call and get the call rolling. EEOC needs to look at attendance, reviews, salary and of course age, boy they are going to be digging gold. BBB can’t refuse... read more
Regardless of the official company statement, everyone knows that layoffs were done in relation to your age, salary and your personal relationship with the SM and DM. So BBB just get over yourself, you did not value hard work, great team work and... read more
Some of you still haven't figured out this is much, much bigger than BBB. 2017 is going to easily surpass 2008 and 2009 as the year of the most retail bankruptcies and store closures. And for those buying into the "It's Amazon's fault" narrative... read more
Any updates on West Coast? Been with BBB 14 years now and getting scared to see what’s next. The district people right now some but NOT all but probably most are so rude they come into the stores like they own the place and basically talk down to you... read more
I am DM in the Central territory with some inside information... Round two of layoffs will be happening shortly after inventory and will affect overpaid SM and Ops. Company is looking to close at least 250 underperforming locations with lease... read more
Bed Bath and Beyond is terrified of a union coming in, well guess what they are coming. The remaining employees won’t get pushed around anymore, too bad it wasn’t before because all long term managers would still be there and people would have been... read more
