I have been working at Toys "R" Us part-time (Less than a year)

Pros

Employees are down-to-earth and considerate. Knowledge of sales and deals at Toys "R" Us is a perk. Store Manager is friendly and flexible with schedules.

Cons

Store tends to get very dirty and inventory is often strewn about. Managers constantly berate employees about metrics. Out-of-season is very limited in terms of work hours given to part-time employees. Employee discount is negligible. Training is very informal and lacking.

Advice to Management

Improve inventory by allowing customers to have official input on what they want to purchase. Improve the "Big Ticket" request system because as it is now, customers take a slip, wait in line at registers, hand the slip, cashiers call Big Ticket, and customers have to wait even longer before exiting the store and/or making the purchase. Streamline the Big Ticket system so that customers can make the request before ever standing in line at registers. Improve break rooms. Rest rooms also need lots of attention.

    Pros

    Management is very flexible. If you give them a heads up they are willing to help with any off time you need or shift switches. People they tend to hire often mesh well with others. I didn't have a negative thing to say about my co-workers.

    Cons

    The hours out of season. Only getting a total of 10-12 hours per paycheck doesn't help someone financially.

    Pros

    It's a job :( enough said

    Cons

    The company focus is only on making money

    Advice to Management

    Look into your local stores to see what is really going on. Pay for experience. Promote within. Stop focusing so much on reward cards, IC's, and BPP's and focus more on your employees.
