I worked at Toys "R" Us part-time (Less than a year)

Pros

Working here was great during Oct-Jan. There is a rush of overwhelming excitement from the holiday season and you are working a lot. The shifts feel shorter and you get to talk to customers and help them make decisions that can potentially impact a child's holiday.

Management always helps out and are understanding about mistakes. They will transfer you to other stores if the need arises and there are many chances to be promoted.

Cons

After the first few weeks of January, business is dead. Suddenly your shift feels like it is 10x longer than it was before and you stand around waiting and hoping for the moment when a customer will come and look at something. It can get pretty disheartening.

    Some people were good to work for. It was a nice campus. There were options to move within the company and try new roles.

    Senior management wasn't great. People weren't very nice. Not a good work/life balance.

    Pros

    It has good possibilities for growth if you play their game their way. Steady raises and cool working environment. Can work with most schedules.

    Cons

    Have to get in the good graces of upper management, or else you're excommunicated from the cool crew. The chosen few can do everything they try to keep associated from doing.

    Advice to Management

    Stop showing favoritism to those that drink with you all the time, and give everyone an equal shot.
