    I worked at Babies "R" Us part-time

    Pros

    Fun while it lasted, was there for 6 months and had a good time. Before liquidation it was stressful getting credit cards and protection plans but during liquidation it was a blast.

    Cons

    After a lot of employees left I became a heavy lifter and product expert, something a tiny 17 year old with no kids shouldn’t have been doing.

    Pros

    Flexible scheduling
    Good coworkers
    Usually a positive working environment
    Good starter job

    Cons

    Management was disorganized, I usually knew stuff before the next manager
    The company doesn't give us what we need to be successful, and instead will blame us.
    The company monitors everything, you get graded on being a cashier, and you have to push the credit card/Rewards/protection plan down a guests throat.
    The management tends to not give any training, and you are just thrown into the ocean.
    Little to no growth in the company

    Advice to Management

    Pay attention to employees, get organized with the other managers, quit shunning the new people and actually train them.

    I LOVE my job!!! It's so simple and fun, and i love the people i work with. You can get as many hours as you want since they're closing. Pretty busy since sales have been going on. My favorite job by far

    They're closing all the stores in the US. sometimes the schedules can be weird, like working 5 days in a row as part time. Other than that I love it
