Working there was a lot of fun

Associate Workshop Manager (Former Employee)

ProsI had a good time there. They really do have fun like they say, you just have to choose to have fun right along with them. They are a Fortune 100 company and really deserve the right to be there. They have benefits for part time employees, you get your birthday off and you get paid for it, plus they celebrate 5 holidays a year with a days pay for the manager and time and a half for everyone.

ConsIts not a great place to get consistent hours. You could be working anywhere from 10-30 if you are a part-time associate. Only General, store and assistant managers get 40 hours a week. It's very possible to get burned out especially if you've been there a while.

Advice to Senior ManagementGive more hours to the stores!

Yes, I would recommend this company to a friend

    Working for this company has been great, it has a lot of perks and benefits. They care about their employees.

    Bear Builder (Current Employee) Providence, RI

    I have been working at Build-A-Bear part-time for more than a year


    Pros: You get paid on your birthday and you don't have to work. They have great benefits… Cons: the items in the store are expensive and growing in price. We don't give out much coupons and our consumers have a problem with that… Advice to Senior Management: Before hiring managers give them a ring through as a bear builder associate. Train all girls… Yes, I would recommend this company to a friend – I'm not optimistic about the outlook for this company… More
