Former Employee - Sales Associate in Mayfield Heights, Cuyahoga, OH

I worked at Toys ''R'' Us

Pros

Solid Product discount
The rest of the Staff other than management are friendly
fair vacation policy as opposed to other retailers

Cons

Management were a group of incompetent blow hards who tried to oversell product at the jest of morality at any given moment

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Hold better employee training in order to provide a better work environment,also they must weed out the riff-raff of certain employees who work there

    Current Employee - Finance Manager  in  Wayne, NJ
    Current Employee - Finance Manager in Wayne, NJ

    I have been working at Toys ''R'' Us

    Pros

    - People are overall pleasant & friendly
    - Hours are generally good (40 hours/wk)
    - Management does take the time to communicate company development quarterly
    - Management is committed to improving the business

    Cons

    - Bonus incentive is nominal and is tied to company & international performance which makes it hard to really motivate
    - Promotions can take a long time; Lateral moves are encouraged and more frequent but the company policy is not to give pay increases for lateral moves
    - Company overly focuses on bringing in MBAs - it's a core requirement, but any MBA from any school is fine. Quality of education is irrelevant for this company, you just need the degree. This leads to a VERY wide range of talent all at the same title
    - Too many test initiatives + analysts who don't know how to interpret data properly
    -No tuition reimbursement
    -HMO healthplan is affordable, but POS plan is very expensive, especially for a family.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Need more stratification in the titles; (At this company, a person one year out of college can be a Senior Analyst, and so can someone w/ 10 years of experience from an Ivy League school)
