Store Associate (Former Employee) – Aventura, FL – May 29, 2016
A day of work involved fixing the stock room or the floor. Throughout the day many items such as strollers will get displaced, thus they will need to be returned to their proper area. Stock room and selling floor will have to be worked the day that the delivery truck brings all the new items. This process will take half the day if not longer, depending on how many things have been brought in. Over all the job is not too difficult but it does require many interactions with parents and soon to be parents from all over the world.
It wasn't what everything that I thought it would be.
Inventory/Stock Clerk (Seasonal) (Former Employee) – Yonkers, NY – May 20, 2016
What was supposed to be an overnight job from 8 p.m. to 10 a.m. turned into a time crunched shift from 4 a.m. to 8 a.m. and it was very hard to keep up to perform all the tasks assigned to me. Coming into the store early in the morning, my manager is already cursing up a storm all day and talking about the employees that are working there. I didn't feel wanted or part of the team especially getting paid $8.25 p/h. (Yonkers)
Cashier - ring (Former Employee) – Port Saint Lucie, FL – December 3, 2015
Working at BRU (Babies R Us) was in one word "Comfortable". Living in a small growing city like Port Saint Lucie, you see the same faces day in and day out. Since a majority of women expecting or already with child/children.
Sales Assistant (Former Employee) – Auburn Hills, MI – August 17, 2015
Customer service, customer service, customer service. That is all that is important when working at Babies R' Us. Nothing too out of the ordinary, must be willing to work in all areas of the store. Don't be afraid to climb ladders because more than likely you will have to at some point.
Everyday you learn something new. You're often taught something with the new technology in this modern day. My co-worker were great, we worked great as a team. The manager helped if I needed help on a sale.

cashier/ sales (Former Employee) – flint, mi – September 6, 2014
I learned a lot about baby products and had awesome, great co workers that made the time there fun and enjoyable for the most part. You will be doing a lot of moving around in the store and helping customers find out what they need. The store manager was awful and terrible at their job. They would sit in their office all day while the assistant managers where always out on the floor doing something. No recognition either when you excelled saying selling the credit cards. They push for the rewards, credit cards and rewards cards as well. The longer you worked for the company the less pay raise you would get and also the hours as well. New employees would get more hours then the people who worked there for 2 years plus.
Back of House Associate (Former Employee) – Reno, NV – April 5, 2014
The co-workers are always in somebodies business and always spread rumors. store supervisors don't do anything, but text or talk on their phones all day. I had to learn everything from my friend I went to school with because they don't train you or teach you anything and get mad if you make a mistake on something you have never done before! The hardest part was unloading trailers before store hours because I had to lift the heavy stuff by myself. I didn't enjoy this job at all.
It was a place I worked, just to maintain having a job.
