I worked at Toys ''R'' Us full-time (more than an year)

Pros

Good introductory program with entry level positions available upon completion. Allows analysts to get experience planning and managing inventory in a highly seasonal and trend driven business.

Cons

Work-life balance is very challenging to achieve due to the seasonal (Nov/Dec) nature of the business as well as the limited staff levels within non-management level positions.

    Pros

    Very positive environment, friendly people, obviously nice if you enjoy toys. It is nice to be around toys and games and assist others with the knowledge and experience that you have to share.

    Cons

    Seasonal is busy and enjoyable but after january, business slows down and hours are cut from employees. With such a slow day, the time drags on.

    Pros

    Extremely easy job during the summer months, good work is rewarded with more hours.
    Constantly learning new things about the system and the store

    Cons

    Paycaps and low raises even for well performing employees.
    Lack of morale from long standing team members who have not risen up in the ranks

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Be honest with people, if they have no chance of being a supervisor tell them.
