Thread regarding Bed Bath & Beyond layoffs

Another corporate hired. No wonder why the store hours are being cut.

Bed Bath & Beyond Inc. (Nasdaq: BBBY) today announced the appointment of Lynda Markoe as Executive Vice President, Chief People & Culture Officer. Ms. Markoe has extensive industry experience from over 30 years at major retailers and will join Bed Bath & Beyond in September 2020.
Ms. Markoe succeeds Bill Gilooly, who will work closely with her to ensure a smooth transition before departing the Company. "I want to thank Bill for all his work at Bed Bath & Beyond. He's a respected colleague and friend, and we truly appreciate his dedication over the last 15+ years," Mr. Tritton said.
And she came from Crew...they have been in trouble for Years...

BG sank this place. Wish he would have stayed at CTS. He saved BBBY's butt during a DC union drive a bunch of years ago, then slithered into Connie's old role cause everyone was impressed with his weaselness. He would have been a great asset for BBBY for the next year or 2, cause he helped Kmart get rid of all of their corporate and store people when they foundered before basically going out. That skill set would do BBBY well in the next year..

Yep, hours are cut because of not being open as usual. But still the hours given to stores to deal with is a disaster. We are a CDS fulfilment order store, product in and to sales floor. Then we pull it to send out. The amount of freight coming thru the door is heavy, not enough time to process, and then the put away is a train wreck. A few hourly' s and the LOD who actually cares busting there a– to get it done. Then there's the other managers who don't care weather it's gets done or not. Maybe they will work on there side of store .....but to help the other side, forget about it ! We're an A volume store, so we have a Hardside, Softside, Operation management so called "team" And a Store Manager who sits in the office most of the day! The store is a merchandising mess. The DM comes and complains on store conditions, and he's right ! Then the day before his visit, SM starts to bark orders , and then gets off there a– and helps. The conditions of the store is for our customers shopping , and not for a DM

The fact is the most glaring issue is being overlooked because the culture of BBB has never been about treating associates the correct way. Drastic reduction of staff in stores is leaving those who are left doing 2x's or more work than they have in the past with zero adjustment in pay. BBB is one of the worst companies out there when it comes to what their associates get paid. It is egregious and insulting even more so now during a pandemic how they expect store associates to work for the pay they are receiving. Stores are becoming even more understaffed now that associates are simply fed up and walking out. Of course they aren't being replaced or if they are the new people that come in see what a sh*t show it is and also leave. The "Dream Team" MT is assembling are acting like they have all the time in the world to turn this sinking ship around and at the same time continue to disregard how they treat their associates, corporate included.

Do you know for sure more cuts are coming for Corporate. They still have all the old VP's in there for what I do not know. They keep passing them off to other dept's and they have know clue as to what they are doing . So why are they keeping them?

He is building his team to try and turn this sinking ship around.
The hr team is a joke. So much verbal abuse and negative energy.
The hours are cut because the stores are not open the hours they used to be.
On line orders are what is keeping the stores afloat.
There is still so much dead weight in corporate more cuts to come. Payroll is the best way to save money.

Hours are down because there hasn’t been enough sales to off set the loss the company had endured during closure. As far as hours still being low is because although the company wants to operate like normal they want to gain as much sales as possible with less payroll. This is pretty much the patter all retailers are facing that have been closed due to the pandemic.

Hours are being cut almost everywhere as places realize its more efficient to be open fewer hours.

What bothers me is the words "diversity" and "culture". Its almost like they are cowering to antifa or something.
