    I have been working at Build-A-Bear (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    You do a lot more than the usual day to day retail activities. The work itself can be a lot of fun to help kids and keep people smiling.

    Cons

    The hours are ridiculous. One week you're working 8 the next you're working 40 and there is zero consistency.


  2. "Just as fun as it sounds!"

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

    Pros

    Fun work environment, coworkers become like family, management is firm but fair and extremely flexible. Definitely an awesome employment choice!

    Cons

    Opportunity to grow is very minimal, almost impossible. Out-of-season, the store is almost completely dead. Other than that, it's super fun!

    Advice to Management

    Don't be so hard on the little people. We have feelings too!
