    Former Employee - Sales Associate  in  Friendswood, TX
    Former Employee - Sales Associate in Friendswood, TX

    I worked at Build-A-Bear part-time for more than 3 years


    Extremely fun atmosphere, the kids are usually very happy to be there, none of the tasks are particularly difficult. Have heard benefits are available to store associates on a need-basis, great employee discount


    *Very dependent on the store, this is for Friendswood, TX location in Baybrook Mall*

    Can be difficult to move up
    Seasonal Staff usually under-trained, putting pressure on other employees
    Not enough registers/stuffers for the traffic that goes through
    High volume store - need to be able to keep up under pressure
    If you perform well, you'll get scheduled on busier days more often
    Compensation low for amount of work expected

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Avoid favoritism
    Consider better work-life balance (don't guilt someone into coming in on their day off)
    Take an employee's education into more consideration
    Better balance of hours - if they don't "deserve" hours, then why are you keeping them?
    Continuous training recommended. Even as a customer, I'm seeing things that I was told never to do on day 1.

    Neutral Outlook
