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

    Pros

    I worked at a "pop-up" store, which meant things were small, close-knit, and lacked a lot of the bureaucracy and oversight you might find at other stores. We handled business and had a blast. I had very down to earth, and trusting managers, as well as very cool co-workers. The environment lent itself to more of a family atmosphere, and that made the job infinitely better.

    Cons

    Pop-up stores sometimes don't last, and such was the case with us. Other than that, there weren't any other cons, and it was easily the best job I've had, as far as retail and slave wages go.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Try to understand that ruling with an iron fist won't get you the results you need. Be close enough until you understand how people work, and then reap the benefits from a workforce that is comfortable in their own skin and willing do the work for you as you need.

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

    Pros

    Able to hold multilple positions and perform various tasks while at TRU, good learning and training environment at multi-tasking.

    Cons

    Upper Management decided to remove almost all tenured team members, many with mulitple years of seasonal knowledge... big mistake!

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Remove the Sr VP of stores/operations and locate someone with people skills... he personally removed many great leaders and brought in his "friends" from Home Depot
