If I worked at a closing store as a part-timer (which means no severance) I would simply make last week my final one. Finding a part-time job is easy, I don't think anybody would have to go more than a few days without a job. But watching those on... — read more
Visted my old store in LA today. Heard a young couple talking to presumably a new associate. They wanted to set up a Bridal Registery. Associate didn't know what that was and neither did the two other associates he asked. Wonder if a manager was... — read more
Sources at corporate headquarters said that there will be more layoffs in 3 to 6 months. So if you were deemed safe you probably are not.
What Bed Bath and Beyond stores are an A, B, C, or D store?? In the area I live in, Northern California: I believe Roseville, Santa Clara, Santa Rosa, San Francisco, Dublin, Pleasant Hill, and Daly City are rated A stores, Sacramento-Natomas... — read more
Have they told the SM or DSK’s what their severance and or bonus will be for staying through the shut down?
Hi Everyone-MT here from my yacht on the Caribbean. Just wanted to take a moment to say thanks to all the hard working men and women out there who helped me make my millions only to be tossed to the side like some kangaroo dung. While you collect... — read more
I don't really know how to feel. I'm happy to finally be done with the bs. But definitely sad to say goodbye to friends and family. To say goodbye to receiving, my office for the last 10 years. I was a kid when I started here. I grew up in this... — read more
Who was told that tomorrow would be their last day, but already got paid for this weeks hours? Anyone else get their paycheck for this weeks hours? What if we work more than what they paid us for?
I'm hoping that we won't have to go into next week with cuts still hanging over our heads. Especially considering that it's Labor Day. That would be unnecessarily cruel, even for Bed Bath & Beyond. One full week of this cr-p was more than enough to... — read more
I get being being upset and angry with the company. I get it, and yes I’m upset too. I’m one of the few people who knows pretty much everything OPS. I remember when I first started out as a cashier and we’d have to key in the prices at the register! ... — read more
Are all full timers being asked to go part time or take severance? If not how are they determining what full time associates stay ? Seem to be some confusion ... Any SM DM HR care to answer before this gets out of hand.
Curious about ca stores. And it's so funny. I saw the post about how many people it's ok to close with. Our store generally has closed with 2 only for months now. In just the past week over 10,000 has walked out the door. It's a nightly thing now.
BBBY will lose much more than it will gain with its latest move. All the stores have been having issues keeping people for obvious reasons, with the majority of locations being like revolving doors when it comes to employees. Full-time positions are... — read more
I'm just curious if anyone actually took it. The two of us said bye!
What Missouri stores are closing? Lake St. Louis ? Lake of the Ozarks? St peters?
after 16 years of ups and downs, working with great people (usually), meeting new friends; after staying loyal, even though i could go work virtually anywhere else and start just under or right at what i was making as a receiving lead after over a... — read more
Has anyone heard if any of the TN stores are being closed?
Note when BBBY announces layoffs. Always prior to Labor Day. Sure there must be a financial reason. Probably something to the effect of "we've had a really cr---y year again"
Is it company policy to allow one sale associate and one manager to close the store for the day? There will be two hours of the store being open with just two employees in the whole store?
As a SM this is the 4th time in the past 5 years of having to layoff or restructure a senior associate. This associate was the last FT non manager associate in the store and besides myself the only person that can do receiving to the level that needs... — read more
Don’t act all shocked - the writings been on the wall for years
Does anyone know which stores are closing in Montana, Idaho, Utah, Oregon and Washington?
Does anyone know if pricing specialists positions are affected?
How many full timers were offered severance and could finish out the work week? If we don’t finish out the work week is that going to effect our severance?
Does anyone know what positions were eliminated?
Store 6 and 468 SMs were among those that were told yesterday they were closing!
Who is eligible for severance in closing stores?
We are nothing but a number to all of them. They don't see us as an asset that brings in profit but as the biggest expense they want to cut as much as they can. If they could, they would run this company with no employees, but sadly for them, that's... — read more
If you look at the leadership now the ladies are running the ship. Hopefully they can turn it around and not run aground. The more we learn about the MT group the more we see how shady these guys were. GM had his house renovation compliments of BBB... — read more
I'm failing to find a list of closing stores and that's unnerving. From some posts here I know some stores have already been notified, but is that true for all 150 stores or just some? I'm trying to figure out if we're still in danger of closing or... — read more
Was anyone else told today that they were laid off, but their last day would be the end of the week? They didn’t do that the last 2 layoffs they had, wonder why they changed it up this time. And how can they expect someone to “give their all” knowing... — read more
They couldn't even be human for a minute and sit me down face to face. They had a store manager from another store call me and then fax me over the paper. We have been nothing but numbers to them after we've put blood, sweat, tears into their... — read more
Are Store Managers affected in any way financially? I mean personally to their income? Bonuses?
For the stores that were told they are closing, was a time frame given as to when they will close?
It’s a sad day.
Word on the street. Say it ain’t so.
Very nervous mine is on the list…
My store lost all 4 fulltimers left and the OPS manager, is this in all stores?
Dept mangers a few years back GONE in August! 2 years ago ASMs taken to 45 hours or up to 16 severance. Now the Doom of 2022!
