Company summary

Bed Bath & Beyond was founded in 1971- back then we were known simply as Bed ‘n Bath. In 1986 we added “Beyond” to our name and introduced the superstore format you shop in today and we’re still growing! We now have over 1,000 locations across the U.S., Canada, Puerto Rico and Mexico. 

We ♥ our customers and look forward to using this page to hear from our fans about what you love about BBB and ways we can work harder to Go Beyond your expectations.

Walk through our stores and you never know what you’ll find… everything from “gotta have” items that serve every basic need to “ah-ha” products that solve common household quandaries to new and unique items that just hit our shelves. We believe in an every day low price policy that allows our customers to buy with confidence. Our knowledgeable sales associates are eager to help adding an element of customer service that our customers have come to expect. 

That’s what makes our store “Beyond Any Store of its Kind.”

Suggestions for improvement

  • Add a management structure back into place to provide that structure and job growth opportunities back to the employees. Restructure the meetings so that those who aren't working on the tasks at hand don't need to stop what they are doing to attend yet another worthless meeting.

What I like about the company

BBB corporate office is local (to me) and offers free parking

What I dislike about the company

BBB recently started using the Agile methodology and flattened out it's management structure. Managers were made into Engineers and are now managed by Project Managers. This has resulted in a loss of direction and this methodology has turned everyone into a Jack of all trades with so many meetings you can't get the job done. It also removes any potential growth for an employee.

Company culture

Great Culture

  • 11.Aug 2017

Company culture

Everybody is angry all of the time. Not a nurturing environment. Too many people fighting over what is right as far as merchandising goes.

Support from Management

Lots of rats fighting to stay on this sinking ship

Teamwork

Nobody knows how to accomplish anything with all the restrictions put on by Corporate. Too many people telling you not to do tasks and no solution on how to get the tasks done.
