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)

    I worked at Toys ''R'' Us part-time for more than a year

    Pros

    Easy to get hired if you need a job.

    Cons

    Except for the holiday season, hours are limited and inconsistent. Customers can be difficult as a result of long lines, crowded stores, and sold out merchandise.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Realize that you get what you pay for.

    I have been working at Toys ''R'' Us full-time for more than 3 years

    Pros

    Competitive Pay
    Opportunities for advancement - Promotions based on performance
    Vacation/Paid Time off - You will start with 2 weeks vacation and 10 days personal time (total of 4 weeks)

    Alot better than another retailer that I've worked for. I don't feel like overpaid labor. Although retail will be retail and it has its cons (crazy customers, black friday, wishy washy payroll) they have a great culture.

    Cons

    9.5 Hr Work days
    6 day work weeks in season (however, you are given 3 additional personal days to compensate)
    Micro-managed
    Retail Environment - It's not for everybody
    Training - It is structured and placed in a training store however there is not follow up from DM or Regional partners
