I worked at Toys ''R'' Us

Pros

The people that worked there were the best thing while working at Toys "R" Us. Management gave me a lot of responsibility which I thought was a compliment to my work ethic.

Cons

Horrible hours, there were weeks I was working 8 hours a week. There was never really any safety training which I thought was horrible. It was a "go out there and do it" kind of job with little to no training. Like all jobs people were preferred and really unfair. The biggest thing that got me mad was that when I got the Job they told me I was going to work as a Electronics sales person. I was gonna do most of my time in "R" zone (electronics). I was excited for that. I never stepped foot into that place.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Concentrate more on training the staff, using them to their abilities, and crack down on Managers choosing favorites in a working environment.

    I worked at Toys ''R'' Us

    Pros

    The only reason I stay so long was that the medical insurance was very cheap.
    During Christmas you will have a very good income.

    Cons

    They don't give enough hours, is supposed to be a PART-TIME not ONCE-A-WEEK-TIME. The most hours I've got was during season (Christmas) and I didn't make full 40 hours a week. After that they started scheduling every 2 weeks and at one point I was getting only one day of 5 hours in TWO WEEKS... I was so behind on my bills and having a very difficult economic situation. They did this to every part-time Team Member as far as I know. Also I was always schedule on my "not available" hours when I had school, this was a constant problem that was never resolved. Because all of this I decided to quit and never look back.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    During season treat the employees better. Is not healthy to work for 14 hours straight and being said that if you don't "stay" you will be fire. I don't even think that is legal.

    I worked at Toys ''R'' Us

    Pros

    The atmosphere and friendly environment

    Cons

    The downside of working at Toys R Us is the screaming kids and blinding picking toys for parents who don't know what to get their child.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    The managers and those in leadership roles should enforce the dress code policy upon themselves and others in order to make the stores have a more professional appeal.
