    I worked at Babies "R" Us part-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    You can usually get more hours if you want them. You get paid. It's good for high school/college students for a first job

    Cons

    It's frowned upon if you don't take shifts when others call in. No one cares if you're in school. The pay is not competitive. The "raises" are laughable and you get it regardless of the work you put in (or don't put in!). I was personally disrespected by upper management for asking questions before giving information to customers. You're treated poorly if you don't know more than one department. You're treated poorly if you don't know your department well enough. There's no real incentive for getting customers to open up credit cards but you're the worst if you don't. Seniority plays a role in scheduling even if the person who has been there the longest calls off once a week.

    Advice to Management

    Dont treat full time college students like idiots because they refuse to work 35 hours a week when they are part time. Also, give the reliable employees more hours and not the ones who frequently call in.

    Application

    I applied online. I interviewed at Babies "R" Us.

    Interview

    I was interviewed by one of the managers and the hr lady. asked basic questions about myself and what I like to do. Then asked more work related questions. It was my first job so it was a little difficult at first.
