    Pros

    Firstly I must say that if you are considering or have just accepted a position from TRU as your first job, don't stress out. I can honestly say that this is the easiest job I've ever had. I met so many great people there. You will receive great hours from about July to December. The supervisors and management help out with any customer situation or question you may have, and they really like it when you show them that you have an interest in expanding your in-store knowledge and skill set.

    Cons

    From January to June, the store is almost dead. I would actually get 4 hours a week consecutively, and for way too long. The hours are horrible for everyone though, even management. This is impossible to live off of if you have bills to pay. However, it is a great time to take time off if you really needed to. I was encouraged to at this time to go see out of state family, because it distributes the hours a little bit better. One thing that was complained about by nearly everyone, is that they will hire just about anyone who applies for season. No matter how sloppy and rude they were, and majority of them were not much help with anything. The assistant manager my store hired seasonally was essentially a horrible dictator.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Screen the seasonal hires far more carefully.
