    Pros

    Customer service is everything. They go above and beyond for customers and expect you to be that way 100% of the time at work. Good pay

    Cons

    The company doesn't usually hire very many full time people in the store so there is little room for advancement.

    Advice to Management

    Nothing

    Great people for the most part. Rewarding if you're really dedicated to helping g the customer. Great training and knowledge.

    Hire more quality people, put more value in employees who have been there longer, get the schedule out sooner.

    Great learning experience for customer service.

    Cons

    Not busy during the Christmas holiday season.

    Advice to Management

    Listen to your employees. If your employees are telling you something more than once, chances are that are telling the truth.

    Heavy Workload for those who actually work

    Advice to Management

    Pay attention to those not working and wed them out instead of just placing the unfinished or lack of work on those who come to do their job

    Pros

    Excellent management and training for new employees. Fun environment. Flexibility with scheduling. Strong promote from within culture. Coworkers are great! Hope to make this a career.

    Cons

    Nothing other than doesn't pay enough. I know of associates with fewer responsibilities who make more than I do. No pay structure - seems to be completely subjective.

    Advice to Management

    Pay employees what they are worth - not what you can get away with.

    I have been working at buybuy BABY (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    Flexible hours. It is a fun environment, always surrounded by happy, growing families. You get to know your customers on a personal level.

    Cons

    They are always short staffed,which is very difficult when there are angry impatient customers. Management does not all play by the book. Each of the managers have their own rules.

    Advice to Management

    They should figure out a way to construct a plan where everyone is on the same page. It is difficult when one manager tells you one thing, and then five minutes later you are told to do the opposite by another.

    Pros

    They give you some freedom with your hours

    Cons

    The pay and the treatment of employees is completely unethical. There is no attempt to create of culture of value for employees. They are treated as replaceable, and generally are before they reach a year of employment.

    Advice to Management

    Learn that good managers don't lose good employees.
