I have been working at Toys ''R'' Us

Pros

To see the joy on childrens faces when they get the toy they want, especially after seeing so many toys all around.

Cons

When you are not in season, there are less hours and the job is even more demanding, I was putting in at least 60 hours a week on salary. I would say it was below minimum wage.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Work with those who are willing to grow with the company and help them. The wrong communication sometimes goes out to the wrong people.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    get back to the roots of being a warehouse of toys. Don't try and beat Wal-mart on price. Beat them on selection of toys

    I have been working at Toys ''R'' Us

    Pros

    Offer competitive starting wage. Friendly and helpful co-workers. Fun work atmosphere. Helpful department supervisors. Good for part-time or seasonal work.

    Cons

    Don't expect store managers or assistant managers to care much about you. They preach open door policies and talk about their desire to work with you, but when it comes time to act, they fall short. Managers and supervisors play favorites with certain employees.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Start practicing what you preach. Actually listen to your employees (and no, going over the results of the internal survey and saying that the results were skewed, then patting yourself on the back doesn't count). Stop changing the way everything is done without feedback from actual employees.
