    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied online. I interviewed at Toys ''R'' Us (Greensboro, NC).

    Interview

    Applied on company website and received a phone call a few days later from HR where I was asked a few simple questions (mostly about my experience and availability). Went to the local store where I would be working a few days later to meet with the store manager and answer a few basic questions. Then I put a bicycle together for him and he said OK and sent me to HR to fill out paperwork. I was offered a job that day and given a date to start my one day of orientation.

    Difficult Interview

    Application

    I applied in-person. I interviewed at Toys ''R'' Us in August 2015.

    Interview

    The interview was mostly a group interview. First off, we took turns saying what our name was and what our favorite toy was. Secondly, we went into the store and picked out a toy. When we came back to the interviewing room, we took a minute or two to get a feel for the toy and when that minute is up, we pretend we are selling that time to a "customer" (the other candidates hopefully for the job). After that, we go put the toy back and come back to the interview room. Thirdly, we get slit into teams and are expected to built something with these "Lego-like" toys and after 5 minutes or so, just say what we built and talk about it. After that, we put the "Lego-like" toys away in its box Lastly, the one-on-one interview. We are sent outside to wait and they say they will call us one-by-one into the room. After like 3-4 people, I guess they stopped doing that and just let peope go in one by one in whatever order. If you wanted to go next, you did. They just asked you "why should we hire you ". And then just follow up questions like your schedule (if you're in school or not)/background check/willing to work weekends/things like that

    The process took 2 weeks. I interviewed at Toys ''R'' Us.

    Interview

    There was an online application, followed by an in person interview. I applied during the holiday season, which I feel helped me get the job a lot. The in-person interview was mostly concerned with my availability and reliability. There were no scenario questions or anything like that. Overall it's easy to get this job as long as you appear friendly and attentive.

    I applied online. The process took 1 day. I interviewed at Toys ''R'' Us.

    Interview

    Sit in a room with a group where you are told to build something out of Lego's then you have to sell it to everyone. Then you are split into groups and given a product and told to make a commercial for it. Then you are called one by one to speak with HR who just asks lightly about your background & availability.. nothing like 'tell me a time when you had a difficult customer..' (Hated those) & then you have a short interview with one of the managers. Pretty simple and you usually hear back from them in a week.
