I worked at BBB for a year or so and definitely would recommend it if you're looking for a retail position. They have extensive training so you really learn everything you need to know and will help you any time you need. I asked SO many questions when I was starting and everyone was super helpful. All but one of our managers was absolutely amazing, loved working with them. If you didn't know something or were dealing with a difficult customer, you could always call a manager and they'd come to help you out with the interaction. The busiest times were usually evenings, weekends, and holidays - usually, customers had questions so you'd be running around a lot to help people but we were staffed well so it wasn't too insane. The other employees were great, everyone got along pretty well and it was overall just a great environment.
Great training, supportive environment, social events/outings, free snacks sometimes.
Extensive cleaning at closing, there's a lot of information to learn, there are a lot of products you can't use coupons on.
Starting work here in the midst of the pandemic was both nerve racking and a blessing. I have never enjoyed a job as much as I do with my position at buy buy BABY. The work/life balance is very manageable and my coworkers and managers are easy to get along with! There’s also lots of great employee promotions etc, which makes saving money on shopping a lot easier. Overall my experience here has been a solid 9/10!
Great work culture, Staff discount, Great management
To many assistant managers and not enough sales associates and cashiers. Ignore request for scheduling needs. Favoritism when requesting time off and/or difficult to get time off for any length of time due to staffing shortage. Seem like you are a burden to managers when asking for help if they even give it to you. Good part - nice co-workers.
- gets extremely busy during sales (black friday, boxing day, etc) - if store has no customer traffic you may find yourself with not much to do but straighten shelves - most of product knowledge will have to be learned on your own as training can only give you a good idea - previous experience in baby product (like having a kid) is an asset and would help you form better opinions to share with customers - management is very lax and will (pardon the pun) *baby* you - you are always encouraged to "pass the buck" - workplace culture is very friendly, everyone is willing to help one another learn and collaborate - occasional potlucks for birthdays and seasonal events - high employee turnover... dont expect to be working with same people next year - you get to meet lots of cute babies - if you are a fairly attractive male expect plenty of female customers to flirt with you... it is what it is
A typical day at work would be entering the store to a warm and friendly welcome from the employees. You then find out the goals that they have set out for the day, and everyone works hard to achieve them. The management was friendly and very accommodating to your needs. The hardest part about the job was the tif you do not know a lot about babies, you will not be able to provide information to the customers. The most enjoyable part about the job was that you make many new friends with the other employees there and they make you feel like family.
I love working here, everyone is like a big family, someone is always willing to help out, the company's culture is amazing.The managers are so appreciative of work done.you get 20% discount off most items.You feel fulfilled after a day's job because you are helping out folks at the most exciting (or nervous) time of their lives.There is a lot of on job training, so you don't have to know a whole lot before you start, just have the right attitude and be willing to learn.
Relaxed work space.
Uncertain about career advancement
I was hired as a temporary position for the store opening however was trained for sales everyday. A few days before the store actually opened I was fired for no reason at all. I worked extremely hard with arrogant managers for minimum wage. In the contract they gave you it seems as though they're hiring you for a sales position and only asked sales questions during the interview however we only did stock. Around half of the employees they hired were fired only two weeks later. They knew during the hiring process who they wanted to keep and let go. They hired strong guys for the stock and kept the pretty faces for the actual sales positions. This is a very dodgy company and if you can, go to a different company when shopping for your baby. Also, the prices are incredibly high for no reason. You can find the exact same items in different stores for so much cheaper.
Horrible management, long hours
I worked in many different departments in the store. The day also starts with a morning huddle where you discuss product knowledge and different selling strategies, then everyone breaks off to their assigned departments.
learning about different products.
customer service, part time hours.
Organizational skills are a must since you back stock and bring merchandise and organize new product almost daily.I LOVED the management team and it was a fun overall job.
bonuses and events (Halloween parties and pizza parties)
only part time
I wish I could give 0 stars because that's what working at this place is. Buy buy baby was actually once upon time great place to work at. It was so nice to help customers that appreciated it and as well first time moms and dads. The staff is great and we all had lots of fun. Unfortunately the management was horrible, they have people running a business who have no idea how to. They act so friendly but at the end of the day are so catty and childish. As long as you work and do what they like you are in their good books but as soon as you ask for them to accommodate you the answer is a big fat no! Being a baby store you would think they should understand having a family and a child to take care of but no they don't. They dont accommodate with schedule changes or needs. This place has so much turnover in staff and it won't stop until they get some new management.
Great staff and frienedly customers
Management, long hours
