I have been working at Toys "R" Us part-time

Pros

Working with the kids is great, being surrounded by the fun toy atmosphere. Relatively easy job and great for people who lack job experience and need to build up a resume, and the hours can be flexible if you make sure to bring it up with the manager. Apparently easy to move into a supervisor position.

Cons

Understaffed, messy as hell at the store I'm in. Lack of clear duties. Sporadic scheduling. Can't openly have a beverage out to stay hydrated. Unpaid lunch, flawed timecard system (whoops I accidentally scanned my card twice now I won't get paid for those hours unless I bring it up with a supervisor). Employees seem to be retained only by how many member cards and such that they can hand out.

Advice to Management

Care a bit more for the staff.
(and stop opening so early on Black Friday)
