Working at Build-A-Bear is an experience like no other. Whether you are in one of our stores making memories and providing the ‘funnest’ hour of a family’s day, in the Bearquarters developing the next product line, or in the Bearhouse fulfilling Guest orders, our associates are what’s on the inside — and that’s what counts! They are the heart of everything we do, embodying our values and culture, and helping us fulfill our mission of bringing a little more to life every day!
When you join our team, you become part of a global company that celebrates giving among its core values. We partner with local, national and international nonprofit organizations to add a little more to life for children who need it most. We also strive to make a difference in the lives of our associates by incenting their goals and recognizing their achievements. In turn, our associates create amazing experiences for our Guests each and every day.
