I worked at Toys ''R'' Us full-time for more than 3 years

Pros

Kids. Lots of fun helping people find the right toys and accessories for their little ones. Definitely always brought a smile to my face seeing a little kid happy

Cons

Screaming kids and complaining parents. Trying to help people during the holiday season and getting yelled at for no reason.

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