The DM from HR came to our store today and will also be there tomorrow. I’ve worked for the company for almost four years and this is only the second time it’s happened; previous visit was long before templates69.rus. DM spent most of the time on the... read more

Topics regarding layoffs at Bed Bath & Beyond
Does anyone truly know what’s going on or about to happen? Our DM keeps making comments during store walks about “trimming the fat” and how he could just fire us. Not a fun work environment anymore at all. He also keeps making comments about how they... read more
So it's apparent we've all seen dramatic changes in our stores. No matter where, volume, or beyond store production. Everyone is getting affected. I've heard many rumors in store level with district level on a new world coming? All that I can puzzle... read more
Big changes in job titles...what is the point?
It is really VERY sad to see what has happened to BBB! Long ago, and for a while, it was a great company to work for. So many people let go, whom I am sure some were old timers that helped make the company grow. Who helped make BBB a great place to... read more
This week all the RVPs and RMs were in corporate for a multi day meeting. Does anyone know what it was for?
I here that these are opening in the Vegas market. Is it opening anywhere else? What exactly is the concept and layout?
Everyone bashing the company needs to get real. You all are probably terrible, lazy, disengaged associates who feel entitled to more than what you deserve. I have been with the company for 17 years and have worked in 3 different parts of the country... read more
Find it super odd that the specific thread about the Houston Market and the world taking conditions there with “D” and “R” has been removed. .....
BB&B is closing one of the Albuquerque stores, and it looks like this is just a preview of things to come. I'll be surprised if we don't start getting weekly notifications on closing stores this year, together with more layoffs in the remaining ones... read more
February 1st 2018 we're required to always wear black shirts, and on weekends black pants matching said shirts. I'd really like to know the genius in management that came up with this idea. With the impending layoffs and dismissals coming, I suppose... read more
Days are growing very grim and gray with such a few days until massive lay offs again are coming for most of the remaining mgrs. Found this in another thread. I was wondering if this was just somebody venting and predicting what's about to come or is... read more
In the mid Atlantic DMs have just been directed to promote several hourly associates to emergency keyholder positions in preparation for the pending layoffs. We don’t know yet how they are going about templates69.rus but we believe they will drop the... read more
I’m really sick of hearing Store Mgrs and District Mgrs tooting their own horn about how hard they work and worked to get to their positions. Hey you got their riding the backs of the department mgrs you just let go. You are a bunch of bragging... read more
Bed Bath and Beyond can’t seem to get their stock out of the toilet!! I can’t feel sorry for them, poor management members won’t be getting any richer. Do I sound bitter, yes I am, the company was built on department mgr backs, we missed family... read more
Funny watching Regionals and District office dwellers find new titles for those completely unqualified for new positions designed to keep them safe for next round. A ten hour day paying them $$$$ to sit in office doing almost nothing. Here's a... read more
The latest I’m hearing is 286 stores closing and 1100 people being laid off as a result. Anyone else hearing this?
Everyone that was laid off needs to get down to the local EEOC office and file a complaint or call and get the call rolling. EEOC needs to look at attendance, reviews, salary and of course age, boy they are going to be digging gold. BBB can’t refuse... read more
Regardless of the official company statement, everyone knows that layoffs were done in relation to your age, salary and your personal relationship with the SM and DM. So BBB just get over yourself, you did not value hard work, great team work and... read more
Some of you still haven't figured out this is much, much bigger than BBB. 2017 is going to easily surpass 2008 and 2009 as the year of the most retail bankruptcies and store closures. And for those buying into the "It's Amazon's fault" narrative... read more
Any updates on West Coast? Been with BBB 14 years now and getting scared to see what’s next. The district people right now some but NOT all but probably most are so rude they come into the stores like they own the place and basically talk down to you... read more
I am DM in the Central territory with some inside information... Round two of layoffs will be happening shortly after inventory and will affect overpaid SM and Ops. Company is looking to close at least 250 underperforming locations with lease... read more
Bed Bath and Beyond is terrified of a union coming in, well guess what they are coming. The remaining employees won’t get pushed around anymore, too bad it wasn’t before because all long term managers would still be there and people would have been... read more
I guess you forget to realize that every manager that you laid off, they will tell their families, their friends, post on social media, you just hurt your company badly!!!!! by the time all this gets out and word-of-mouth and on social media... well... read more
4th quarter....no receiving mgr. - no mgr or supervisor on hard or soft side...no mgr or supervisor for freight put away.....WTH was corporate thinking....oh wait they weren't. Moral s---s!!!!!
Long term full timers at my store feel layoffs for us will happen soon.....we all have 3 to 4 weeks vacation time ....sick days....higher pay.....they will get rid of us and hire part timers. All corporate wants is to get it to where they don't have... read more
I'd like to know why they are advertising for department supervisors and managers on Monster.com when they let go several 100 department managers. They claimed to be doing away with department manager positions and yet advertise for them in NJ(?)... read more
Getting rid of the receiving manager at 4th quarter and then hiring 2 part timers to take his place was the decision of a corporate idiot!
So they let go of several dept mgrs. and then advertise for dept supervisors and mgrs. on Monster.com! SERIOUSLY???
So a few days ago I was contacted by an attorney asking if there was grounds for a Class Action Suit, and I sent him an email with the Severance Package info. He called back last evening and wanted more info from me He said given the criteria listed... read more
Both quit after being with the company over ten years. People are jumping ship before it sinks.
Whenever you think there will be no layoffs/job-cuts/RIFs they change the approach. Now all people are talking about job cuts in Union.
The downfall for Bed Bath has not been Amazon but forgetting their core values. In chasing Omni Channel they forgot the 85% of total sales in the stores. Replaced managers that cared and drove business with cheaper hours and replaced what is in the... read more
So half way with the severance and no job as of yet! Interviews yes but the money that has been offered is $12,000. to $20,000. difference, Gonna stick it out. There has to be something for me! Hope others are employed again. I'm sorry to hear that... read more
They weren't going to rehire anyone they laid off in 6 months, and the only reason they gave 6 months, was to see if anyone was going to file a EEOC charge against them, that is the allotted time to file. Because of the foolishness that they pulled... read more
Your new CTO was the CIO at my old company. See how he did. http://templates69.ru/follett
Confirmed: spoke with a regional manager, this person said the district staff knew, and that they needed to let go anyone who wasn't going to be promoted right away, and anyone making too much money, and to promote others to asm before layoffs... read more
So, anybody thinking what I am thinking? Huge sales drop that is followed by a huge drop in share prices is not good news for the company, but it's even worse news for us. We've seen the thinking of Bed Bath and Beyond leadership in the past months:... read more
If you thought BBB was done after the department management layoff initiative in August 2017, expect more. Store managers (particulairy tenured) can be expected to be given their hat and shown the door soon after the holiday season at the first of... read more
So besides messing up the early paycheck debacle now it's taken them 3 weeks to figure out how much COBRA subsidy they are willing to co pay. Right Management is also a poor attempt at saving face ... nice try but very poor execution.
