I have been working at Toys ''R'' Us part-time

Pros

Working with the kids is great, being surrounded by the fun toy atmosphere. Relatively easy job and great for people who lack job experience and need to build up a resume, and the hours can be flexible if you make sure to bring it up with the manager. Apparently easy to move into a supervisor position.

Cons

Understaffed, messy as hell at the store I'm in. Lack of clear duties. Sporadic scheduling. Can't openly have a beverage out to stay hydrated. Unpaid lunch, flawed timecard system (whoops I accidentally scanned my card twice now I won't get paid for those hours unless I bring it up with a supervisor). Employees seem to be retained only by how many member cards and such that they can hand out.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Care a bit more for the staff.
(and stop opening so early on Black Friday)

    Pros

    You can easily move up in this company.

    Cons

    No training, lots of confusion in management, and little scheduling flexibility.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    On my first day, before I even had an employee number or even knew how to clock in, I was put at a register with no training or supervision. I didn't even know what buttons to push. This in turn made customers very upset and impatient. There has to be at least some training within the organization. When I asked other associates to help, they seemed just as confused as me. I worked at Toys R Us for one day (I was even asked my the manager there to stay 2 hours extra) and called HR the next day to tell them this was not a good fit.
