    I have been working at Build-A-Bear part-time

    Pros

    - Working with children and families is the best. Especially when a child is excited.
    - It is a rewarding job helping others find their perfect bear.
    - My coworkers are like a family to me. We all help each other and we're there for each other.
    - Flexible schedule

    Cons

    - Very little hours. Thanks to this my pay is very low since I make eight dollars an hour.
    - Some part time managers are difficult to work with, but they're not horrible.
    -Very little room for promotion since no one leaves.
    - I have to ask permission to clock out. This has never happened to me at another job. I do stay a few minutes late if I'm working with a customer, but I have other obligations and responsibilities. I can't stay an extra half hour without compensation just because someone is on break or just doesn't feel like dealing with the customers we have in the store.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    I would love more hours, but I understand that only a certain amount could be given out depending on sales. Respect your part time employees, since they're the ones working with the customers. We definitely deserve more than a pizza party once a year..
