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

    Pros

    Get to work with children and see all the cool new toys. Friendly co-workers and managers. Easy to do job. Relaxed and fun to be around staff.

    Cons

    Pretty much pointless to work at after holiday season, no hours at all. Managers only focus on metrics. Whiny customers, grownups who act worse than the children. Can't leave till the whole store is cleaned.

    I have been working at Toys ''R'' Us part-time (more than 3 years)

    Pros

    Coworkers are great, all the "little people" stick together.

    Cons

    All this company cares about is metrics. The philosphoy is "change the people or change the people" - I have never felt so underappreciated in my life. If you do well with personal metrics, they want to to get more numbers so they threaten you with hours. If you aren't doing well, they take away your hours instead of giving training or coaching to improve. Hours fluctuate - some weeks you get 5 hours, other weeks you'll get 30 (when it's convenient for them, of course). Minimum wage to start, with the opportunity for yearly reviews, where you get at most a 25 cent raise.
