    Interview

    I was greeted immediately by a friendly employee who directed me to the break room. I sat and waited with about 7 other applicants. In came HR who introduced herself and said we were just waiting for the manager before we could move forward with the interview. As soon as the manager showed up, we got to it. He was very friendly and funny. I felt comfortable right away. We all introduced ourselves and moved forward with the interview process.

    I was hired and I asked my own questions and they were more than happy to answer any question I had. I'm looking forward to working with Toys R Us again. Fingers crossed that it becomes more than just a seasonal position.

    Senior Financial Analyst Interview

    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied through college or university. The process took 4+ weeks. I interviewed at Toys "R" Us (Wayne, NJ) in November 2016.

    Interview

    Applied through school.
    1.Got an email to schedule 45 mins interview with Manager in Finance department (no unnecessary HR screening, which was nice), heard back next day after that.
    2.Got an exercise to complete (2 parts: summarize sales data for 2 years in 1-2 slides and forecast sales for half of the year). Heard back in a couple of business days (learned afterwards that there are actually 2 Managers reviewing the submissions, they take it seriously).
    3. Got invited to all day event at Headquarters: 3 45-minute interviews back-to-back, lots of networking with current employees (newly hired and general group). Heard back in 2-3 business days.

    Make sure you have lots of questions prepared! They give you a LOT of opportunity to ask questions, and one of my interviewers left whole 15 mins for my questions. Ran out of prepared ones and had to come up with stuff on the fly, don't suggest that, make LOTS of questions prepared in advance!

    Also, I was VERY surprised when I saw there were only 8 of us that day. Makes you feel valued. They are watching you closely and considering each of you carefully and seriously once you're there. Do yourself a favor and be prepared. Overall, very positive experience, super friendly and professional people.

    Interview Questions

    • Evaluate feasibility of new store opening (abroad)   Answer Question
    • How would you define the amount that would qualify for free shipping for online purchase?   Answer Question
    • Most of other questions were behavioral, "tell me about the time..."
      -when your initial analysis was wrong
      -when you didn't have technical tools to do the analysis/finish the project

      Obviously be ready with your past project you're most proud of. They probe on leadership, teamwork, analytical work and your reaction to ambiguity.   Answer Question

    Sales Associate/Cashier Interview

    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 3 days. I interviewed at Toys "R" Us (Las Vegas, NV) in November 2016.

    Interview

    The interview process had a very positive vibe. I attended a group interview. It was a group of about 7 people. We were all very outgoing and friendly; thus, we showed that we could work in a group, unintentionally. We played with legos as we waited for our individual interviews. The manager was very friendly! The individual interviews may take a short while, so block out a couple hours of your schedule just to play it safe.
