    I have been working at Toys ''R'' Us part-time for more than a year

    Pros

    Good first job to set you up with basic retail skills, Management depending on location tend to dislike the job just as much as you do giving you a common ground

    Cons

    terrible management no room for growth and too many disgruntled associates (due to lack of decent pay and overbearing amount of work)

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Try not to overwork your staff remember they are working for minimum wage

    I worked at Toys ''R'' Us full-time for more than 10 years

    Pros

    Dibs on product, non season time not as bad as season, your kids will like it

    Cons

    Unrealistic expectations, bad scheduling system, perform or leave mentality, too much politics between mgmt., store mgrs take advantage of schedule to benefit them, closing and recovery procedures during season need revamping, did not supply adequate security in high crime stores during season, hourly associates hours get cut without notice, not enough payroll to correctly run the business

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Don't open on Thanksgiving or stay open all night

    Doesn't Recommend
    Negative Outlook
    No opinion of CEO
