Great!

Anonymous Employee (Former Employee)

I worked at Toys ''R'' Us

ProsEasy-going environment.that lends itself to a "first job". I'd definitely be consider working here again

ConsYou have to be careful, because when they ask when you're free, they tend to schedule you for all of your available hours. If you have any weekend hobbies, don't tell them you're free on the weekends
