Then they did the one on one interviews. I was the first one to be called in dont know if this is bad or not. I am still waiting for a call. Had the interview yesterday.

    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 4+ weeks. I interviewed at Toys "R" Us (Commerce, CA) in October 2016.

    Interview

    Took a month to respond. Very fast and short phone call, not very professional. Was a little late to the interview. When I got there the guy took 10 mins. to get out and meet me. So, he didn't notice I was late and apologized to me. Told me it was one of those "Hectic mornings." I was expecting a group interview, but it was just me. The interview took place outside on a bench. He knew I was really nervous. He seemed pretty chill and nice. Before we started he told me "I just want to chat, and get to know you." He was informative about the job too. We did have a very nice, long chat about movies/toys/games/art for 40 mins. After the chat was over I lied a lot about myself, pretty sure he knew I was. And i kind of told him I didn't like kids *facepalm* I have no idea why I said that to him. At the end of the interview he wanted me to walk in the store and pick a toy and tell him why I picked it. I completely failed on that part as well. Then he told me he'd call if i got the job or not. I was not very uncomfortable after the hour interview about working for him. So I planned to decline, if he told me I got the job. Instead I got an email from Toys "R" Us Human Resource saying I did not get the job. It was kind of relief to be honest.

    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 3 weeks. I interviewed at Toys "R" Us (Bronx, NY) in September 2016.

    Interview

    Just as the majority of glass door users said it was. Pretty simple. Phone pre interview followed up with an in person interview. Basic questions as expected. They seemed eager for the holidays, but this store in particular needs a lot of help. Definitely better mangers.

    Reasons for Declining

    This particular store was just a mess. The environment did not seem like a friendly toys r us store. Higher management needs to take a look at this store.
