    Disapproves of CEO

    I worked at KB Toys (More than a year)

    Pros

    I was a store manager. Great family like business when it was up and running. Full control of demo for toys to sell. Our crew was more than managers and employees, we could all openly talk to each other and share ideas to help the store.

    Cons

    This company has been out of business (Filed full Bankruptcy) for about 6 years. This was a nationwide closure

    Advice to Management

    Reopen the stores. Give the store managers control of their business, not corporate pockets. If KB Toys was to reopen today, I would happily be a store manager again. I despise walking into a Toys R Us. KB Toys was the best

    Application

    I applied in-person. The process took 5 days. I interviewed at KB Toys.

    Interview

    I applied and two days later got a call to come in for a interview with a manager, asked why I wanted job and what I thought if company? Said it seemed like a fun place to work. And good company. Was told I could not apply if my family worked there, and was told to be careful of robbers. After 20 minutes was done and hired. Was very slow store.

The retail toy business is not all fun and games, as the nation's largest mall-based toy chain KB Toys can surely attest. The struggling toy seller operates about 380 stores in malls nationwide, following the closure of about 120 stores in early 2008. (Previously, KB Toys shuttered more than 600 locations and laid off thousands of employees following a stint in Chapter 11 bankruptcy protection.) To survive the company hopes to sell inexpensive toys and games to impulse buyers in malls, while leaving the fiercely competitive market for more popular products to market ... More
