    Application Details

    I applied in-person. The process took 4+ weeksinterviewed at Toys ''R'' Us.

    Interview Details

    The interview process is pretty easy. The company has pretty low expectations and hardly ever turns anyone down. In fact, during my interview, we stopped because the district manager said that I sounded like I wrote the questions that he was asking me. The interview was very awkward because the district manager sat on the desk the whole time over me- like an intimidation move.

    Interview Questions
    • No difficult or unexpected questions- I was asked if I wrote the interview questions. They are all behavioral based- like Wal-Mart and Target. In fact, an exec from Target wrote the Toys R Us interview packets. They all start with "tell me about a time, or describe when" pretty remedial and easy to answer.   Answer Question

    Application Details

    I applied through an employee referral. The process took a weekinterviewed at Toys ''R'' Us in November 2012.

    Interview Details

    Had phone interview with a recruiter, then interviewed in person with regional hr mgr, and then ultimately with regional mgr.
    questions were pretty standard and they were clearly trying to get a sense of who you were.
    They spent a LOT of selling me on who Toys R Us supposedly was and how they wanted someone with my experience somewhere else to help them take TRU to another level (I later figured out they don't want any input because they feel like they know everything).

    Interview Questions
    Negotiation Details
    They clearly had thought through what they needed to offer, but my suggestion would be to ignore the bonus "potential" they will spend a lot of time talking about because it's unlikely you will make it.

    The process took 2 weeksinterviewed at Toys ''R'' Us in November 2009.

    Interview Details

    A bit extensive interview. On grounds interview inside store near North Star Mall. Poor Presentation of Store Manager and Assistant Manager. District Manager was a complete mess as it looks like his hair had been blasted under a sunroof of a corvette. Other than that. Easy interview. We spent time talking about his past days with Home Depot rather than with Babies R Us.

    One question was, if you walked into a store and saw me breastfeeding on one of these glider rockers, what would you say to me? - Though strange question, I cared not to overshadow the rather common issue or experience one may have in a baby store.

    I applied through an employee referral. The process took 2+ monthsinterviewed at Toys ''R'' Us in March 2012.

    Interview Details

    I was scheduled for an interview with the HR, but it turned out to be a panel interview with the HR, DM and regional. They took turns asking questions. Everyone was quite polite, listened thoroughly and asked follow up questions. Their questions were well thought out. The interview started with them asking me about myself and I was given 10 minutesto talk about whatever I wanted.
