When I hired on with BBB it was PT. I already had a part time job somewhere else and was required to bring in my schedule so the manager could work around it. Well now my manager is telling me that I have to prioritize BBB over my other job (which... — read more
Topics regarding layoffs at Bed Bath & Beyond
FG has passed away. So sad that he won’t be able to see the big changes at BBB.
I wonder why Chris Regan left BBBY to go to Christmas Tree Shoppes and BBBY no longer owns?🤔🤔
Anyone know what the bonus amount is going to be?
I’ve been reading the articles about our new branding campaign, the home happier campaign. There is good news as they say it focuses on the store as well as online. We should be getting more hours in the store to implement this and ensure customers... — read more
The Home Happier campaign is great for customers, maybe. On the other hand, Employee Happier. No not at all. At our store we can't hire anyone, their not even applying. Or when an interview is done (if they actually come in) there told $10... — read more
This launch will solidify our dominance in the home goods market for years to come. With this we will blow the competition away! Get ready.
I have worked for BBB for over 10 years now and I feel that there is a positive change to how this business is run. Every week MT puts out some type of communication of what’s happening. Never before have the greedy good old boys have done that. ST... — read more
BBBY is going to incur major loses this quarter.
How many have quit BBB without giving notice or just stopped coming into work? How many have been able to find a job shortly afterwards? And how many regret quitting because you’re still unemployed? And what were your reasons for walking away? Was... — read more
New dress code what do you think??
Are accidents on a rise at your store? We are getting in too much freight, too little associates and rushing around to get things done. Our store has had 3 accidents in the past month! Now we can’t use top stock space and can not pog behind the... — read more
Why can't we just be closed on Easter, like Best Buy, Target and others????
It’s the end of March. Did anyone see a match for their 401K?
What a joke! What work am I proud of? Nothing. What's there to be proud of? I managed to not actually lose my s*** even though I was straddling the edge. Most impactful learning experience? Being furloughed taught me that the majority of my stress... — read more
How effective were they? Did the company get back on track after the huge layoffs - no. They cut people’s jobs too quickly and totally recklessly. What about us who survived - do we now have better working conditions? No, we do not... — read more
Has anyone gotten a remark lately that they work too slowly? I can’t be completely objective, but it seems to me just the opposite, I’m working faster than ever. And more than ever. They are full of remarks that do not motivate at all, but destroy... — read more
I don’t know if Monday, Tuesday or the end of the week is harder for me? Every day is so dull here. It’s hard to find any inspiration to work here anymore. My only inspiration for now is paycheck to be able to pay the bills and the free time I use to... — read more
My SM told me HR told her to not have a year end conversation with me. I'm assuming it's bc despite so many changes in the company the one thing that stuck was our pay cap. All our time and dedication means nothing to them and they are so oblivious... — read more
Will store managers go down to 40-45 hours?
Our store is being told to start transfers to other stores next week and last week we started getting some clearance merchandise transferred in. The SM said we are just heavy with merch compared to other stores, but we don’t have that much merch. ... — read more
Does anyone else have issues getting that district staff to help!?!?! I will text my dm and not hear anything back period. Then get asked by her why I didn’t I reach out. Then if you miss one thing you get your tail kicked. But if they miss something... — read more
It is funny to me when I hear from some colleagues that the loyalty of former customers still helps this company a lot. I don’t know how they draw those conclusions, but what I do notice is that BBBY is increasingly losing the loyalty of its... — read more
Do you think we will survive the biggest federal tax increase in 30 years plus corporate taxes going back up? Or will that billion dollar renovation be in vain? Inflation from this last bill is also supposed to hit us this year. It will be a battle... — read more
Since I haven’t found a new job yet, I’m still here. I try to somehow find something positive every day that keeps me together to make it easier for me to get through my work day. I take comfort in telling myself that all this stress is bearable... — read more
BBB store vandalized and looted last night.
I keep putting applications in either online or in person but so far I have had no luck and this has been an ongoing search for almost a year. I am not sure if it’s my resume, or lack of descriptions in it. I am not good at this sort of thing so any... — read more
Received word today that more stores are closing (obviously!) was informed location in Dover, NH will be part of this new list. Please list new closures here as they become more known. Hopefully a list will be made from this.
If you are laid off because the store is closed then tell the prospective employer “The Store Closed.” Do not say you were laid off. You will get much more empathy from the prospective employer when you say “The Store Closed.” Laid off can be vague... — read more
I’m new to BBBY and need to move to a new city soon, so I’m wondering if anyone has any experience with changing locations? Is it even possible for me to switch from the store where I am now to the store in the city where I am moving? .. — read more
When a store closes and there are other nearby stores staying open, does the company transfer employees to nearby stores?
Everyone says it’s easier to find a new job if you already have one. I have been trying for months to find an alternative for myself and I have not yet been able to find any decent job. Moreover, I have a feeling that it would be easier for me to... — read more
Anyone know what the percentage is on the match?
Did anyone actually get the correct parts to build the new fixtures we were all sent? If we put the parts from all our district we can build a complete set of 6. 🤡 Show
Should we expect pay raises this year?
It looks as though, the newly hired (C) Suite Executives, whom most came from failed companies, are now s—ing all assets out of the Company and turning around and buying back stock to artificially inflate stock price. I have seen this game played... — read more
Not trying to bust people here....but employee morale is LOW right now! Many Full time employees are basically shaking wondering if their job is on the line. And as for the Part time teenagers....we are getting constant call outs and kids on their... — read more
Getting a lot of comments the last few days from customers asking if we are closing. I know our shelves are bare but they honestly look BETTER than they did in January. That and we got a lot of new inventory in this week (Newell, Essentially Basic... — read more
It would not surprise me at all that apart from the announcement of 200 stores closing from last year, there is even more downsizing. Only bigger stores will survive and that’s it. Someone mentioned it in one of the posts below and I share their... — read more
That everyone of the former Regional Vice Presidents are still looking for work according to LinkedIn profiles. Does my heat well to see they are suffering like they made many of us suffer throughout their leadership run. They are getting exactly... — read more
