    I have been working at Build-A-Bear part-time (Less than a year)

    Pros

    Fun Management, Get paid to Play With Teddy Bears, If you love Children and have a bright personality. its a great place to work.

    Cons

    Not a lot of hours, Pay not that Great. Occasional problems with understaffing on the weekends when the store is packed. Hosting Birthday parties can be very stressful. Some parents try to take over the activities you do with the children. Sometime there are very difficult children to work with.

    Advice to Management

    I can't really say anything negative about management, A lot better than other places I've worked. However there really should be a separate party room because the parties interfere with the regular shoppers and take a lot of space.

    Pros

    I definitely had a positive experience at BABW. The management I worked with was fantastic, and my fellow Bear Builders were great as well. You couldn't leave that place in a bad mood.

    Cons

    The communication between management and the general employees was not the best. We weren't informed in a lot of time when we would be having specials and sales so we could inform customers ahead of time. Because of a training error my a manager who was later fired, my register privileges were revoked and I lost the opportunity for a pay raise because of that.
