Featured Review

Former Employee - Bear Builder

I worked at Build-A-Bear part-time for more than a year

Pros

I worked at the Fenwicks concession in Newcastle, and I adored my time at BABW. My beautiful team I hold close to my heart, and management were so welcoming, helpful, and kind - Chris and Julie, you... are not only incredible management/leaders, but amazing people! The team are like a close knit family, and every new employee is welcomed with open arms. Every day is so different, and you learn to host parties and get to make such special memories for guests! I loved it.

Cons

I don’t have a bad word to say on the company.
