    Assistant Manager Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in New York, NY
    No Offer
    Negative Experience
    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 4 weeks. I interviewed at Toys "R" Us (New York, NY) in March 2017.

    Interview

    I was contacted by a "recruiter " and when I called her back she was very curt and said she had to take a few days off and would contact me when she came back then hung up before I could say anything. I was then contacted a month later by another "recruiter " the day before I went on a cruise to the Bahamas and would not have my phone on for a week. When I called that woman back I was told she WAS recruiting for the company but isn't anymore and she hung up. I have worked in retail over 20 years and have been in charge of hiring seasonal associates to Store Managers and every level in between and I can't imagine that level of unprofessionalism being okay. Maybe if you are desperate for a job?? I just don't get the impression that the culture in those stores is anything but miserable.

    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

    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 2 weeks. I interviewed at Toys "R" Us (Bronx, NY) in October 2016.

    Interview

    At this particular location, the interview was a mess. The staff is less than desirable to work around. Which os very odd considering it is supposed to be a fun work environment.
