I have been working at Toys ''R'' Us part-time (more than a year)

Pros

The hours are flexible mostly. The pay is alright, I guess. There's a relaxed dress code with some opportunities to wear things such as sports jerseys.

Cons

The managers aren't helpful. You don't receive proper training. Hours are cut more than in half as soon as holiday season ends and are given to the seasonal employees who were kept on staff.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Get involved more, don't hide in your offices. Give proper training when employees first start working.

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

    Pros

    It was a job at the time

    Cons

    Management (at the time) let team leads get away with showing up late including for opening. No accountability, and playing tricks with pay.

    I worked at Toys ''R'' Us part-time (less than a year)

    Pros

    Part-time job for the holiday season, minimum wage (a job is a job), flexible hours, experience gained, good co-workers I suppose, at least I got paid, the videos of the training about star service.

    Cons

    Managers and supervisors were uncoordinated, store management was a mess, training for seasonal employees was minimal and not very helpful, fake promise of permanent position (they did not hire anyone after the holiday season), Black Friday was a horrible mess that I was about to quit, very uncaring managers in my opinion, does not live up to the training videos about star service.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Do not treat employees so bad and more communication is needed between managers.
