I have been working at Build-A-Bear part-time
Really fun, great way to improve communication skills, can form great relationships with other employees
Not many hours, sometimes the store can be quiet
I applied online. The process took 2 weeks. I interviewed at Build-A-Bear in January 2016.
I applied on the website and got a call two weeks later to "see if my personality would fit a position". I arrived along with a few other candidates. We went to the back room/office/staffroom where there was fast food wrappers on the floor, staff kept coming in to get changed! The person interviewing was very happy which was good I guess, although a little false. The questions were pretty easy although I felt she was a bit patronising and obviously hadn't read my resume which stated I'd had 10 years experience in retail. When I found out the shift was literally 4 hours a week that's when I knew it definitely wasn't for me. Who can live on that?
To sum up, it seems like a good job for a student or first job if you want pocket money. The interview itself was laid back and not at all scary.
Reasons for Declining
Hours are atrocious
