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

Pros

(Most of) the people were friendly.

Cons

Management pushed you to go above and beyond, promised rewards and a permanent position, but end up only keeping one or two employees.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Be honest with your seasonal members. Don't imply that you're going to keep them on and then let them go.

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

    Pros

    It is a job so it is better than nothing. You are told by management to approach every guest and talk to people so that can be a pro or a con depending on your personality.

    Cons

    You are constantly nagged by management to get customers to sign up for loyalty cards and credit cards and are never praised for selling.

    I started at 8.50 an hour and minimum wage is 8.00 and the annual raise is only around 20 to 30 cents a year. The hours are usually a con because you will always be scheduled on Saturdays unless you are a full time employee. Full time employees usually get what I considered to be the best shifts: weekday mornings and Sundays.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Pay your employees better to keep them happier

    I worked at Toys ''R'' Us full-time (more than 5 years)

    Pros

    I worked for Toys r us for 7 years. I had prior It jobs before but I really consider that place my start in IT. The people and culture were great and the atmosphere was easy going. Their Benefits and compensation were really great at the time. I really didn't appreciate that aspect until I moved on to other companies.

    Cons

    A lot of their systems were proprietary and Antiquated. Found out I had lost quite a bit of skills after leaving there. Pay could have been better although their benefits and compensation were very good.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Pay better, modernize systems.
