Pros

Fun environment to work around. Plenty of new faces everyday such as celebrities like Andre Johnson for the Houston Texans.

Cons

The only downside about any retail store is working holidays which means tons of people with tons of attitudes which leads to massive stress.

    Pros

    "OK" pay
    Fun people to work with; managers really get to become friendly with everyone.
    Work with you on days off

    Cons

    Scheduling can be a total mess.
    Holiday season is terrifying--even for someone who has worked at a store during holiday season before.
    Customers are very quick to become cranky and will always blame the first person they see.

    Advice to Management

    Give your stores more leeway--our management would have definitely jumped at the chance to accommodate us and make us feel more comfortable if they had the monetary means to do so.

    Pros

    The people that worked there were the best thing while working at Toys "R" Us. Management gave me a lot of responsibility which I thought was a compliment to my work ethic.

    Cons

    Horrible hours, there were weeks I was working 8 hours a week. There was never really any safety training which I thought was horrible. It was a "go out there and do it" kind of job with little to no training. Like all jobs people were preferred and really unfair. The biggest thing that got me mad was that when I got the Job they told me I was going to work as a Electronics sales person. I was gonna do most of my time in "R" zone (electronics). I was excited for that. I never stepped foot into that place.

    Advice to Management

    Concentrate more on training the staff, using them to their abilities, and crack down on Managers choosing favorites in a working environment.
