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.

- 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

Management lies and does not care about employees. They are misleading and don't give second chances and yet expect the staff to make all the sacrifices.
Pros
Friendly staff
Cons
Varing hours on the fly
