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

    Pros

    The on line product training

    Cons

    Poor communication from senior management to store managers
    Run on a shoe string. Cannot order supplies that are needed because budget is so tight.
    Poor morale in stores, low pay, not enough staff to get the job done.
    Hours fluctuate week to week, being full time does not guarantee full time hours
    Managers work minimum of 70 hours a week
    Same pay whether you are new to retail or have experience, how do you entice talent?

    Advice to Management

    Remodel needed in stores
    Increase payroll in order to have proper staffing and to get tasks done
    Create a sliding scale in order to pay for experience
    Create a life balance for the sr managers
