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

Topics regarding layoffs at Bed Bath & Beyond
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
I guess you forget to realize that every manager that you laid off, they will tell their families, their friends, post on social media, you just hurt your company badly!!!!! by the time all this gets out and word-of-mouth and on social media... well... read more
4th quarter....no receiving mgr. - no mgr or supervisor on hard or soft side...no mgr or supervisor for freight put away.....WTH was corporate thinking....oh wait they weren't. Moral s---s!!!!!
Long term full timers at my store feel layoffs for us will happen soon.....we all have 3 to 4 weeks vacation time ....sick days....higher pay.....they will get rid of us and hire part timers. All corporate wants is to get it to where they don't have... read more
I'd like to know why they are advertising for department supervisors and managers on Monster.com when they let go several 100 department managers. They claimed to be doing away with department manager positions and yet advertise for them in NJ(?)... read more
Getting rid of the receiving manager at 4th quarter and then hiring 2 part timers to take his place was the decision of a corporate idiot!
So they let go of several dept mgrs. and then advertise for dept supervisors and mgrs. on Monster.com! SERIOUSLY???
So a few days ago I was contacted by an attorney asking if there was grounds for a Class Action Suit, and I sent him an email with the Severance Package info. He called back last evening and wanted more info from me He said given the criteria listed... read more
Both quit after being with the company over ten years. People are jumping ship before it sinks.
Whenever you think there will be no layoffs/job-cuts/RIFs they change the approach. Now all people are talking about job cuts in Union.
The downfall for Bed Bath has not been Amazon but forgetting their core values. In chasing Omni Channel they forgot the 85% of total sales in the stores. Replaced managers that cared and drove business with cheaper hours and replaced what is in the... read more
So half way with the severance and no job as of yet! Interviews yes but the money that has been offered is $12,000. to $20,000. difference, Gonna stick it out. There has to be something for me! Hope others are employed again. I'm sorry to hear that... read more
They weren't going to rehire anyone they laid off in 6 months, and the only reason they gave 6 months, was to see if anyone was going to file a EEOC charge against them, that is the allotted time to file. Because of the foolishness that they pulled... read more
Your new CTO was the CIO at my old company. See how he did. https://www.thelayoff.com/follett
Confirmed: spoke with a regional manager, this person said the district staff knew, and that they needed to let go anyone who wasn't going to be promoted right away, and anyone making too much money, and to promote others to asm before layoffs... read more
So, anybody thinking what I am thinking? Huge sales drop that is followed by a huge drop in share prices is not good news for the company, but it's even worse news for us. We've seen the thinking of Bed Bath and Beyond leadership in the past months:... read more
If you thought BBB was done after the department management layoff initiative in August 2017, expect more. Store managers (particulairy tenured) can be expected to be given their hat and shown the door soon after the holiday season at the first of... read more
So besides messing up the early paycheck debacle now it's taken them 3 weeks to figure out how much COBRA subsidy they are willing to co pay. Right Management is also a poor attempt at saving face ... nice try but very poor execution.
Worked for the company for many years and they are struggling partly because the company bought back billions of shares, at the expensive of many being layed off, just to enrich themselves. They can't make up the shortfall on wall street, even by... read more
I worked for BBBY for more than 8 years and got out more than a year ago. New management team was hired to implement new initiatives more than 5 years ago. 5 years after, they have done nothing but screw the company by hiring more than 50 highly paid... read more
My manager told us at our morning meeting that this round is likely not the last round of layoffs. This was said with district and regional staff in attendance. If you survived the initial layoffs, and you're management, be prepared for what could be... read more
That's the rumor. May be way off, but we should be prepared. Do you know how likely is it that a private equity company is to scoop us up?

It seems that this round of layoffs was just the beginning for Bed Bath and Beyond... The company is renegotiating its soon to expire leases, and depending on deals it can or can't make, planning to close up to 100 stores... read more
Well thank you to the CEO of bed bath and beyond ( Steven H. Temares ) well what do we have to say about the CEO !!! that you... you s---, thank you for driving the business down the ground, you Have no respect to the management staff that works at... read more
All the battleworn left behind are wondering who or what level is next. Very hard to get back to whatever normal is now esp as there has been no communication from anyone Dist or Reg. Zero. We are all traumatized at what just happened and now come... read more
This is an excellent article on how hard it can be for older workers to prove bias.
To say that BBB isn't growing or "expanding" is to ignore the recent corporate acquisitions of three companies, Personalization Mall - an online retailer for $190million, Decorist - an online interior design service, and Chef Central - specialty... read more
Does signing the severance agreement mean that we are not entitled to any monies paid from current class action lawsuits? I believe Bed Bath and Beyond is currently being sued for not claiming assistants exempt from overtime and by not paying time... read more
Important information, if anyone was enrolled in the FSA with benefits, submit your receipts ASAP ( like this weekend). If you submit receipts that are dated before your termination date, they will pay out up to your maximum for the total year. Extra... read more
I spoke to an employment attorney yesterday regarding signing the agreement not to sue in exchange for getting the severance package. She said she has represented former BBB employees before, their employment attorneys are very savvy, and it's very... read more
