A nice place to work during college

Master Bear Builder (Current Employee)

ProsThe pay was great compared to other retail stores. The job is also tons of fun if you have the right personality for the position.

ConsYou get burnt out exceptionally fast, at least at the store level. There also seems to be an unfair promotion system where district managers have different agendas.

Advice to Senior ManagementAlways keep the lines of communication open. Communication is a key factor to the success of any business, but Build a Bear currently lacks open communication.

Yes, I would recommend this company to a friend
