Approves of CEO

I have been working at Toys "R" Us full-time (More than 3 years)

Pros

Competitive Pay
Opportunities for advancement - Promotions based on performance
Vacation/Paid Time off - You will start with 2 weeks vacation and 10 days personal time (total of 4 weeks)

Alot better than another retailer that I've worked for. I don't feel like overpaid labor. Although retail will be retail and it has its cons (crazy customers, black friday, wishy washy payroll) they have a great culture.

Cons

9.5 Hr Work days
6 day work weeks in season (however, you are given 3 additional personal days to compensate)
Micro-managed
Retail Environment - It's not for everybody
Training - It is structured and placed in a training store however there is not follow up from DM or Regional partners
