My time at buy buy Baby has been a decently rewarding experience. The environment was usually slow paced during the week, and extremely busy starting up on Friday afternoons, fading down by Monday afternoon. Everyday you have the opportunity to learn something new from merchandise, procedures, and even customers. With that being said, you will always be on your feet, even if just standing around at the registers waiting for things to get moving. Customers and Coworkers were laid-back and easy to get along with. Pay isn't that great for those who need to provide for their family or have costly Northern VA living expenses! Considering that buy buy Baby is part of a MULTI-BILLION dollar conglomerate, the corporate/CEO spectrum could definitely work on methods to bridge the wage gap in certain areas.
Overall, I believe this would be a fulfilling position for students looking for experience to add on their resumes, those in between jobs, and those individuals that are seeking extra revenue to fund other personal endeavors.
Also, if you get the wonderful opportunity to work at the Dulles location, I strongly stress that you SPEAK UP FOR YOURSELF. The managers are great individuals, but they will take advantage of you if you give them the grounds to. You don't need to feel obligated to do anything you don't have the energy or means to do.
working with customers, laid-back enviorment
