"BJ's Wholesale Club is a large company with a variety of roles. They are well positioned for success, especially during times of instability in the economy. They provide value to their Members, which will never go out of style. The people who work there are some of the nicest and most talented in the retail industry."
"I have worked for BJ's for only a few months. I was hired on to be a Field Sales Rep. But due to the Covid-19 pandemic, I have not had the chance to actually hit the field. I am currently telemarketing day in and day out. Although I am grateful for the opportunity, there is just no way I can make the kind of money I am use to and desire. All in all, the company is wonderful to their employees, but the compensation is just not there."
"I've worked for Bjs Restaurant for 6 years and it was a great experience. The fast pace environment was something I fell in love with. There are many opportunities to move up and further your career there as well. The techniques they teach you within sales is something that you can carry on into your next jobs. The gold standard customer service really helps you stand out against ant competitors."
"I worked at BJ's for almost a decade. It is a wonderful place to gain experience and work cross-functionally to gain insight on various departments. However, the 'more with less' corporate mentality makes it extremely difficult to successfully meet the consistently high standards, and executives are more frequently recruited from the outside, rather than promoted from the inside. Work/life balance and overall company morale leave something to be desired. Decent compensation and bonus structure. Good benefits and PTO."
"I worked for BJ,s from February 2007 until January 2020, holding multiple positions from Mid-level store management to Regional Manager. The company is growing and ever-changing with multiple growth opportunities for individuals."
"I've worked for BJ's restaurant for the last 3 years. I've moved up from Host all the way to Lead Server Trainer in the last 3 years. Management can be a little condescending at times, but for the most part, they are there for the team."
"I worked for BJ's Brewhouse for 7 years and moved up from hosting to lead bartender. This job allowed me to develop my communication skills and improved empathy."
"BJs offers a wide selection with a helpful staff!"
"I have worked for BJ's for over 2 years and there is no room for advancement or no real appreciation for hard work. The pay is less than stellar as well."
"I've worked there 6 years and have made my way to LP Manager. The only gripe is the poor raises. Managers only get an annual raise and my current one for a good review was less than 1k a year, around 40 cents. While employees can get biannual raises at 65 cents per review. There are employees and just employees that make more than me that have for only a couple more years just because of that fact."
"Sometimes I wished I never knew the back offices and break rooms or where the loading docks were. However, the store management and customers were great to work with. I met my goals every month with creative techniques and was well awarded for my efforts. It was fun while I was employed there. I moved to an area that didn't have a store within 100 miles."
"Great company to work for. The company has been continuously investing in technology and people."
"I enjoyed working for BJ's Wholesale club for over 5 years. I provided many new applications and application enhancements that save the company money daily. Unfortunately, I was included in a cost-cutting lay-off of over 95 employees in 2013."
"This is an excellent organization for students and folks looking for part time work. For those individuals interested in pursing a career in the retail environment BJS is a family friendly organization who people at the forefront of all its decisions."
What do you like about working at BJ's Wholesale?
"Most of the front line employees are fun to work with and you can make many new friends. They are also very flexible with your scheduling."
Do you have any tips for others interviewing with this company?
"Know that you are getting into retail and often have to deal with rude and obnoxious customers."
What don't you like about working at BJ's Wholesale?
"The management is horrible, they are never helpful when you need a work related problem fixed. They are extremely skimpy on payroll and often hire new and cut back more experienced employee's hours. Also all the employees, including managers, all gossip about each other. It's like you are in high school again."
What suggestions do you have for management?
"Focus more on the actually needs of their employees instead of doing whatever it takes to meet their monthly goals. Employees will work better if they are happy and treated with respect."
