I worked at Toys "R" Us full-time (More than a year)

Pros

Good introductory program with entry level positions available upon completion. Allows analysts to get experience planning and managing inventory in a highly seasonal and trend driven business.

Cons

Work-life balance is very challenging to achieve due to the seasonal (Nov/Dec) nature of the business as well as the limited staff levels within non-management level positions.

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

    Pros

    Generally speaking, the people are very nice to work with.

    Cons

    Too many chiefs and not enough Indians. Recent senior level changes have not helped the stability of the organization and many are jumping ship.

    Advice to Management

    The overall store experience is HORRIBLE! Invest more time and money on getting this right or else the best offers in the world wont get your customers to come back.

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

    Pros

    Very positive environment, friendly people, obviously nice if you enjoy toys. It is nice to be around toys and games and assist others with the knowledge and experience that you have to share.

    Cons

    Seasonal is busy and enjoyable but after january, business slows down and hours are cut from employees. With such a slow day, the time drags on.
