    Part Time Associate Interview

    Anonymous Employee in Culver City, CA
    Accepted Offer
    Positive Experience
    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 2 weeks. I interviewed at Toys "R" Us (Culver City, CA) in March 2015.

    Interview

    I was called first by the HR Manager for the location, and she said that I was to come in the very next day for a group interview.

    There were three other candidates with me, and we all went around the table telling everyone our name, and favorite toy growing up.

    We were then asked to go out into the store, pick any toy, and we took turns selling the toy to the managers. (The best prep for this is to either have a toy already in mind before-hand, or when you get the toy start reading the box right away.) They ask you various questions about the toy, what the age group is, does it contain choking hazards, and ho many batteries (if any) does it take.

    Then we were told to wait outside to be brought in one by one. Two girls went in first for about 10 minutes, then were dismissed, then me and the other girl were brought in for an offer. The hired us both.
