"If you're looking for a fun work environment, Build-a-Bear is a go-to for you! I really enjoyed working at the company for my 2 years, but unfortunately I don't want to work in retail forever. My coworkers were incredibly kind and always stopped to help me if I needed something, and the environment was super friendly! It might be a side effect of working at a toy store, but the people were always sweet."
