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

Pros

The people are nice. I really enjoyed to environment. It is very laid back, if you are lazy then this is your place. It isn't too busy most days.

Cons

The schedule is awful and the management is awful. The customers can ask for ridiculous request and are rude usually. The managers are disorganized.

    I worked at Toys "R" Us full-time (More than 10 years)

    Pros

    Toy Company...what could be bad, right?

    Cons

    Toxic culture. No trust. High pressure. Phoney HR.No fun (hhow can that be?).

    Advice to Management

    Do the right thing. Reward your people, trust your people, develop your people. Stop the corporate hype and really care about your people. Everytime you fire someone, you damage the rest of the people still in the company. Bring in new, non-retail blood. Re-invent your business. You are stuck in an old model!

    I worked at Toys "R" Us full-time

    Pros

    I worked with some great people, both on a personal and professional level. You can learn a lot, if you're driven to do so and can ignore the nonsense around you

    Cons

    IPO isn't happening, so until the ownership structure is figured out, everyone is thinking short term cost savings and not long term investing for the future.

    Advice to Management

    Do an honest assessment about your long term viability and what your business model should be, then act accordingly.
