    Application Details

    I applied online. The process took 1 week - interviewed at Toys ''R'' Us in July 2008.

    Interview Details

    Applied online. After receiving an email establishing interest, I received a follow up call for a phone interview. The successful phone interview was followed with two face to face interviews by the DM and the regional HR.

    Interview Questions
    • There were no trick questions. The line of questions was very straight forward, but also geared towards store management, not from the perspective of an associate. It is a good idea to keep your answers with the store unit and company needs in mind   Answer Question
    Negotiation Details
    Salary negotiation is HEAVILY based on prior experience. The same exact position can be held by individuals earning tens of thousand more or less due to how you interviewed and your retail work experience.

    All three interviewers were very professional and pleasant. Though the interviews themselves were warm and stress-free, there was very clear line of questioning screening for management experience and competence. There were many hypothetical scenarios with touchy or difficult performance management components which are pretty common in retail.

    The questions, while conversational, came quickly and had a practiced delivery to them. The impression I received was that they were not trying to trip you up, but rather to get your instinctive responses to gauge your ability to react quickly and appropriately should similar situations arise.

    Application Details

    I applied through college or university. The process took 2 months - interviewed at Toys ''R'' Us.

    Interview Details

    I got in touch with the Toys team through my school. The staff members were really nice and the interviews are straight forward, with some difficult questions. They got back to me 2-3 weeks later. The team that I worked with though was very unorganized. I felt like no one really knew what was going on with when they would get back to me; they even lost my application and I had to apply again. I really wanted to work for the company and after 3 interviews I got a misleading call that I was the perfect fit for the position in their headquarters (in NJ). But that statement apparently didn't mean that I got the job.

    Application Details

    I applied online. The process took 2 days - interviewed at Toys ''R'' Us in February 2012.

    Interview Details

    General, unimaginative phone interview. What's your strengths, weakness? Why Toys R Us? Blah, blah, blah. The interview actually went very well, but I wasn't given an offer b/c of my bad credit.

    Application Details

    The process took 3 weeks - interviewed at Toys ''R'' Us in April 2011.

    Interview Details

    Groups interview/ observation in three phases;

    part 1) They gave us a piece of paper to fold and asked us to write or draw three things; 1) favorite song and why 2) your first job, 3) your hobbies. Obviously they want to see your creative side and the kid inside. so don't feel to get creative..

    Part2) the managers pared us up with partners and assigned us a bucket of building blocks. We were suppose to build a product and think off all the features and prices, seasons, etc... pretty much sell the product to them(once again don't be afraid to get Creative)

    Part 3) individual interview consisted of two very simple questions, 1) why do you want to work for Toys R Us 2) what are your strengths and opportunities.

    The process took 5 days - interviewed at Toys ''R'' Us in May 2011.

    Interview Details

    A ton of interviews, many of which were on the phone. All the members of management seems very credible. They fail to share the reality of the work life imbalance. The lack of resources all management faces, and the clear cut backs so the company can look good on paper.
