Anyone else having trouble hiring when most retailers are paying more and/or are giving sign on bonuses?
To the people that come here to bad mouth anyone that is unhappy, anyone that posts a concern or anyone that just need to vent, get over yourselves. If you don’t like any if this why don’t you go start your own your own website titled “Ultimate... — read more
Partnering with Ryder could be a great thing, but aiming for a 10 day cycle time still seems a bit high? Happy the company is tackling supply chain issues!... — read more
One of the hardest things I find is remaining motivated when I know my commitment to BBBY is a one way street. I am definitely finding it hard to justify keeping my work pace up when I know that my hard work may one day be rewarded with getting laid... — read more
Who else here works in a sweatshop? They only seem to run the A/C for customers so it’s sweltering before the store opens. There don’t seem to be many air ducts in receiving so it’s always hot back there. And at least here in Florida, they don’t do... — read more
Do you think the company is well positioned to boost online sales? Can BBBY do better in that regard? I am an ordinary employee in one of the stores and I am interested in how BBBY online sales seem compared with some of the competitors?
I need to know if this is unique to my location. Our management team love to tear people down just for the fun of it - because they feel they can. When politeness would do more for productivity we seem to come up short in that department. People in... — read more
There are multiple posts on this board about how bad BBBY Is, how MT doesn't know what he is doing, how the company is doomed. Yet when it is asked why you stay..no answers are given. There are many many jobs our there..many are remote..so why stay... — read more
Why do people hear view honest criticism as negative? If the company truly wanted to be customer focused, it would fund the payroll to accomplish this goal. Cutting payroll and positions to meet expense goals over the past year has hurt the level of... — read more
Is it possible that there are those at BBBY who are very satisfied, so they come to this site to sabotage any discussion about the bad things in the company that employees face on a daily basis? I even think that my manager in this company is not... — read more
I got a few opportunities to work in companies that I thought weren’t much better than BBBY at all. In the end, I accepted, although I thought it didn't make much sense to go through the stress of a new start in a company that isn't much better... — read more
Wow! Just got back from vacation and we have so much clearance! The entire furniture room…all the shower tub mats…tons of sheets…navea…most of soft kitchen. What’s going on!?
Who remembers store 101, Ontario Mills
What did you think of the lame meeting for our new CS program? Even my SM couldn’t be enthusiastic trying to present it to us. They act like we never had a customer service focus and expect us to change when there are no hours or coverage to... — read more
My store location has only 2 front ends and my location will not hire or promote anyone is that a red flag?
Disappointing memories - that's all I got after more than 5 years working here. I didn't learn many new things that I didn't already know. I expected at least a little respect, but I seem to have expected too much. There is a constant pressure... — read more
So many stores in Florida are about to get the shut down notice. Gary is keeping so many in the dark.
Does anyone have any pictures of the fully remodeled stores? I’m curious to see the new design concept.
How much time passes from the moment BBB announces the closure of the store to the moment it happens? I don’t need their announcement, I certainly know the store will close sooner or later (probably sooner than later), but I still wonder if employees... — read more
I’m in the Midwest. Associates in my store whom I know are not vaccinated are not wearing a mask. Why is my manager not implementing this rule that those who are not vaccinated MUST wear a mask!
If your store has a mandatory meeting on Sunday , this is when your told your store will be closing in the next 6 months.
Are store is being renovated and is adding Harmon. Basically after ditching CTS early last year the goal here at BBB is to add more health and beauty to make us more “essential”. So with that in mind: Is there a list of stores NOT getting... — read more
People in my store work hard because everyone hopes it won’t be closed. It will be quite sad when they announce that closing follows. I don’t like to be negative, but I know of many stores that were doing much better than ours and they are closed. I... — read more
I don't really believe when someone says that in some stores the situation is much better than in others. Maybe the situation is only slightly better somewhere, but in general, I think it is bad everywhere, in every bbby store. It was bad in... — read more
My store sales are up, we are hiring. Back to college set and looks awesome with all of the new product lines. Customers are complimenting the service. My manager keeps us informed about everything. Life is good at BBB.
Clarksville, Indiana location is closing. Any word on other stores not originally scheduled to close? https://www.bizjournals.com/louisville/news/2021/07/06/louisville-area-bed-bath-beyond-store-closing.html
If your shelves are empty, I’d recommend asking your SM if your location is closing. It happened to 3 stores in my district and the employees weren’t told until the liquidation date was set. This is true. Great advice from someone from one of... — read more
They decided to increase our hiring rate by $1.50 but only to give it to anyone not making $10 yet. All the supervisors are angry as well as anyone with any amount of time under their belt. Even the SM is angry but HR doesn't care like usual. I feel... — read more
Is it all full timers getting let go this week?
BBBY has gone downhill in the last few years. The results and morale are just not there anymore. I’ve seen bad decisions after bad decision year after year and I am always surprised at how blind management is to their mistakes. It’s sad for employees... — read more
MT says the turnaround is working, but with missed expectations and all the actual results we see and hear from customers daily, how much longer will Wall Street give this guy a chance?
Is anyone else tired of hearing this? Don’t think it’s fair that a small store struggles and gets threatened. When a big store with more variety gets praised. How long are we going to ride this road as I am about to take a detour.
I am still trying to figure out how this company keeps id--t managers and had let go of so many full timers who knew the products, who set up displays, who are so very customer friendly, customers who knew there was someone to assist when needed. I... — read more
I’m happy because I’m finally at a new job starting next week. I never even intended to stay here long, but in the short time I’ve been here, I’ve realized that all the BBBY stories about how little the company values its employees, are even worse in... — read more
There are job openings throughout the chain. It's not only with part time , it also includes SM , ASM, Supervisor. And there are areas without DM'S . Regional Manager, S C from East Coast. Terminated. G C South East , has picked up his... — read more
I apologize that this question doesn't have much to do with layoffs, but I'm interested in how store managers were evaluated at BBBY? I understand that their ability to complete business goals is crucial, however, what if some SM manages a team that... — read more
Slow days are the worst, and I think there have never been slower days in our store than there are now. Some would say it’s better than being overwhelmed with work, but I prefer when the store is alive and in the selling spirit. It's hard not to... — read more
I didn't have any expectations that the replacement would come right away. However, they don’t seem to have any intention of finding a replacement for colleagues who left and who were incredible performers. Instead, I’m doing even more work now. .. — read more
How bad will they be? Will they be honest about how much foot traffic is down?
Any truth to this or is this a rumor…by sept they will be letting go of most if not all full timers? I can see this being done…my store has been hiring part timers like crazy!
