    I worked at Build-A-Bear part-time (less than an year)


    Build A Bear was a fun and interesting job. I enjoyed that they encouraged you to sell more and sign people up for memberships by rewarding you yet didn't really place excessive pressure on sales. Really enjoyed talking to the children and families who came in. You sometimes start to see a lot of regulars. Laid back atmosphere. Friendly customers. Flexible hours. I had no trouble requesting time off. Do well at your job and you will be rewarded for it.


    It can get EXTREMELY crowded on the weekends and this can get kind of stressful if you're on stuff machine. Co-workers kind of cliquey but it's nothing that will really distract from your job. Managers are immature. They are also TERRIBLE at handling a last minute emergency. If you ever call-in they have trouble replacing you and management may become rude to you and hold it against you. Had a great relationship with management until I called in sick once. After that I was constantly spoken down to and disrespected.
