Reporting from a store in the Southwest, massive cut in store hours, down to the very low 600s, lowest I've ever seen, compare this to the halcyon days of around 1100, part-timers left holding the bag with little more than crumbs. All this at a B+... read more

Topics regarding layoffs at Bed Bath & Beyond
Apparently it’s easy to move up for BBB if you can’t think for yourself. I’ve only been here for a few months, but this is the most backwards company I’ve ever worked for. The good ol’ Boys club is alive and well in our region and if you don’t comply... read more
I have to say that you saying the people laid off were lazy, complacent and overpaid is not only insulting to most us that were laid off but not true.. I gave bbb 17 yrs of hard work not only that I went above and beyond what my daily job entailed. I... read more
All the rumors and crying about layoffs, FOR WHAT? Everyone that hates BBB and wants us to fail needs to quit and stay off of here. I LOVE BBB and my district/regional staff! Things change and if you can’t roll with the punches you shouldn’t be in... read more
Oh goody! Some genius buyer thought it would be a great idea to carry a Back to College throw pillow that says TIRED AF. I understand that many people know what this means,but to the no less than five customers who asked me “what’s Tired AF mean?”... read more
Letters have gone out about letters received by lots of folks regarding a wage lawsuit. You can talk to their lawyers if you want and there will be no retaliation by bbb. Sure. Another sm and regional quit . What do they know that would make them... read more
25+year bbb retired,,got myself out before the big downfall and layoffs. I have been traveling around the country the last few months visiting bb b stores when I can..I have never seen the stores looking this bad..Warren & Len would be appalled if... read more
Question for you guys that were laid off in August 2017. Are you able to refile for unemployment benefits if you haven’t found a job that is within 75% of your old salary, that’s what we are hearing from some HR. We are all very worried and trying to... read more
As we squeeze hours in the stores and hire new associates in at minimum wage ever think of Steve Tamares wage? What's reasonable for his performance. How about 3.96 million plus another 12 million in stock. Total 16million dollars for 2016. The stock... read more
My first question is why any store manager or asm is put on a pip? It wasn't us who put the company in 1.5billion dollars of debt. Nobody talks about that. We don't decide where stores are located. Maybe we should be asking what the presidents pip... read more
Interesting that when I got a manager review I got a sheet of "one'liner" comebacks to counter all the negative news from wall street. How BBB has so much money... How BBB is going after furniture business... How BBB is strong because of our... read more
I have a personal friendship with my HR. A few months ago he made a comment about the company putting an end to stock buybacks in order to drop shares low enough to attract a private equity firm. A year ago I would’ve thought he was crazy, but now it... read more
We might not be there just yet, but with current management, Bed Bath & Beyond is certain to follow Toys R Us into oblivion. It's really sad what happened to once great company that I actually felt proud to work for. God, has that changed in the past... read more
How low are stocks going to get before action is taken with the CEO. This company is in desperate need of leadership and I have no faith in the leadership we currently have in place. Morales are at an all time low and people are fearful for losing... read more
OMG, does a house half to fall on corporate before the realize they are in trouble? Get rid of the top heavy lazy mgrs., and see if any of the hard working department mgrs. are willing to come back and help dig this company out.
Too many positions and levels of positions at a district and regional level. Need to trim it up. But district staff is getting more and more stores, making their effectiveness less potent. Hopefully the CEO gets ousted soon, along with most of the... read more
Any existing personnel notice that there is ZERO information on "My Source"? Usually when something happens we see the calendar task pertaining to TV crews, reporter phone calls, etc.... There seems to be complete silence & it's unsettling. More... read more
Wow, besides our stocks dropping last week to an all time low (10 years; at $17.50 a share) we're making news front page. We're headlines for CNN although I'm not a fan and now Forbes. What does this mean for us? The company is in 1.5 billion dollar... read more
Why is everyone so hardened towards their district and regional staff? Are other districts and regions THAT bad or is there just a lot of bitterness and resentment on here? What has this DP guy personally done to anyone? All the talk and complaints... read more
Just wondering, it's been pretty quiet. Been hoping somebody knows something.
Treat others as you would like others to treat you, Well I guess I get to Lay Off the District Staff ! They are always passing the buck, on to some unsuspecting associate to take the blame for their inept management techniques. Surely they cant be... read more
I thought it would be interesting to see what changes, if we were allowed to make them, would we put into place at our stores. I’m sure depending on location, merchandise varies from store to store. But if I could make some changes regarding items we... read more
Stocks closed today at $17.21, this should be an eye opener for corporate, explain that to the board of directors and why we still have certain individuals in charge, heads need to roll!!!! Nothing is going to change Until this unqualified senior... read more
Stock prices will go extremely lower once the market opens due to the bad earnings report yesterday. Steven Temares needs to step down as CEO due to his lack of vision and leadership. He’s been stagnant in his position for way too long.
When Regional or District staff visit they talk down to everyone and constantly tell everyone in other words how to do things better. The kicker is all of them haven't worked in a store actually managing the buildings, but somehow seem to know it... read more
I'm not looking forward to quarterly earnings report. I think it's going to finally become clear that laying off all those people did not help Bed Bath & Beyond become more profitable. But I guess my bigger fear is that their conclusion will not be... read more
If layoffs are going to happen, I would point to Wednesday 4/11. For some reason all district and regional staff are scheduled. Usually they all take off Wednesday’s in my region. Also earnings are coming out that day and we know the numbers will... read more
sold my BBBY stock today - enough of the slow decent into the gutter. good riddance
a thought to consider (my opinions on observations) - once TRU and / or BBRU does its layoffs / closings, the HR team will be welcoming and actively pursuing those folks, undercut their old pay and save a ton by replacing existing workers, save on... read more
Our Store Manager was walked out the other day. He put in his 2 weeks then proceeded to be treated like a criminal. Unreal!
This morning we were estranged by seeing two top dogs for HR show up way early. While entering the building and walking they openly discussed "filing paperwork for two terms" now while this might seem normal protocol, there happens to be a meeting as... read more
Think about it. 30,000 jobs at stake when Toys R Us goes under. That's a guanrantee, regardless of "when". Smart employees there are already applying and landing interviews to other companies. Secondly, if and WHEN this second round of layoffs come... read more
Several stores in my district are reporting expedited training in order to have department supervisors ready to carry keys within the next month or two. They’re also wanting them signed off on the operations modules. Is this just an isolated instance... read more
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
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
