The process took a day – interviewed at Toys ''R'' Us (South Elgin, IL) in August 2011.
the toys r us store, was not yet built so we had our interview inside of a trailer. It first consisted of a group interview, and there were nine people, eight girls and one boy. At first we did an exercise which she explained was to make us all feel more comfortable being there, we had to introduce ourselves to the group, say a favorite childhood toy, and a favorite cartoon. We were then split up into two groups, and we were given legos, and had to create something within our group, and describe it and why we made it, it was pretty easy and fun. Then they had four people switch groups, and we were put into pairs, and were given an item and we had to role play amongst our group of two with an object, one person was the customer then the other was the seller, then we switched roles. Then were given another item, and were told we had to practice a skit to to present to everyone. After we started our one on one interviews, which all seem to consist of around at least ten minutes, I was last, and it seemed like they asked me two questions and lasted about less then five minutes, so I'm not sure what to think of that, but besides the one on one it was pretty fun and enjoyable and easy.

I applied online. The process took a day – interviewed at Toys ''R'' Us (Milwaukee, WI) in August 2010.
Well. this was my first interview i had ever had and i was a little nervous. When i went in, the first thing i walked into was the group interview. It was completely nerve racking considering I don't do very well with speaking in front of other people. As the process went on, they just told all of us about the company and how that particular store functioned. It got a little less nerve racking after that. We were instructed to go onto the sales floor and pick an item that we had to 'advertise' to the rest of the people in the room. When that was over, we had to build our own item and 'sell' it to the rest of the people in groups of 3. When that was over we got with another person and were given a sheet to write things about ourselves. then we presented them. After all that nonsense, the 1:1 interviews began. They called everyone one by one in a room and asked the typical interview questions. (tell me a little about yourself...why should i hire you?) things like that. Then they said they'd call you within a week or so. I wasn't called so i called back and they said that the background checks weren't in yet so i waited and waited for a while and then they finally decided to inform me that they weren't looking to hire me.
- why should we pick you for the job, what do you bring to the table. 1 Answer

I applied online. The process took a day – interviewed at Toys ''R'' Us in July 2010.
Group interview consisted of 10 people. Had to write our name and an adjective that started with the first letter of our name on a piece of paper. Then we had to make something out of LEGO's, and attempt to sell it to the interviewers. Then we paired up, and interviewed the other, asking standard questions, then reporting back to the group and saying if s/he was a good candidate for the job. Then after that, we went in the back with the HR Manager or w/e and someone else, and they interviewed me for about 5 minutes. Pretty easy interview.
