Chief Workshop Manager Interview
I applied through a recruiter. The process took 4+ weeks – interviewed at Build-A-Bear (Nashville, TN).
First Interview is by phone. Most questions are the standard answer, straight from the page type. Second was with the District manager(bearatory leader) and another exec. Questions are more detailed and give you a chance to interject how you handle things. Final interview was with a local Store manager and is just a formality, The next step is a series of Psychological exams.
- There were no difficult questions. All interviewers seemed very inexperienced. The most important thing is to act like a cheerleader the whole time. Answer Question
I gave them a very narrow range and they offered me the lower. I countered with the higher and they made that offer.

The process took 4+ weeks – interviewed at Build-A-Bear (Dayton, OH) in June 2012.
4 or 5 interviews over a period of a month. Hugely stressful when job seeking to avoid double-booking. There were also a series of tests that had to be taken which seemed easy to pass with a little common sense.
- Nothing too hard- management questions that were easy to handle. Answer Question

I applied through an employee referral. The process took 2 weeks – interviewed at Build-A-Bear in August 2010.
I was recruited and they didn't have many other options. So it was pretty easy aside from a test.
- Do you thrive under pressure? How would you coach an underperformer? Answer Question
They are paying less and less and their payroll is shrinking. I think I was one of the last ones to get a really great salary.

I applied online – interviewed at Build-A-Bear.
Work through a set list of questions, you will have a telephone screening interview or what you think is a general chat but the interviewer is looking for key things between 2-3 face to face interviews, a battery of tests that will take between 4-6 hours, once that is reviewed unknown to the candidate it goes to a review board in the USA where the trading manger or managing director plus the area manger will go over the interviews you have had with them, plus your test results! If you measure up you will then be offered a position! (Be prepared for the long haul on the interview process!)
- Usually things like explain a time where you have negatively impacted on your team .. Usually throws candidates .. Because they don't want to admit that they ever have.. But if you acknowledge you have and the way you rectified it and learned from it you will get major brownie points! Answer Question
Gave me a couple of days to accept the offer, they offered me more than I was expecting so no negotiation required.
