Do you work at Toys 'r' Us? How did you find the job? How did you get that first interview?
Any advice for someone trying to get in?

I literally broke my back when I was unpacking what a mgr. told me was over 1,200 cases of apparel with no help a lot of the times. (go team work). I was there 4 yrs..never made it to employee of the month despite how hard I tried and how different managers told me, your metrics are awesome. What they did reward me with was a 'Hershey' bar.(which would have been good for say 16 yr olds)? What a slap in the face that was. On the other hand....(this makes up for all the grief I had to put up with) . . a new employee got 'employee'of the month within one mouth....and I did see how she was with certain (male) managers. Well she got FIRED one month after that acknowledgement for 'stealing'. These managers are clueless as to what's going on because they lost focus of the entire picture. Too busy trying to make the almighty dollar. That's what is hurting these stores.
Also I worked long hours with no breaks...despite my pleads and despite feeling dizzy and nauseated. I went from 99 lbs to 84 lbs. They knew that...but still didn't want to give me breaks. I called the hotline to report them...the workers are still not getting breaks. Good riddance!
Texas is a right to work state, yes I know this....but my health was in jeopardy. That's not right!

I spent a good length of time applying for a basic sales associate position. I have over 5 years of retail/customer service experience and also have a BA degree. I have never been fired or layed off, no criminal record too. I even have decent credit. I wanted a simply part time position in these hard economic times we live in to pay my bills. And what did I get after a lengthy on line application asking at the end for age, race, ss#, credit check, criminal back ground check..etc?
I got an email an hour later stating, "Thank you for your interest in the Sales Associate position. Unfortunately, we currently do not have an opening that matches your qualifications and experience."
Sorry Toys R Us, but this is BS and a simple discrimination process of applicants!
I do not want to work for you now!

So lately I been putting in a lot of apps for Toys R Us, and my questions are as follows:
1. Is it a good practice to put a few apps in for the same position here? I've heard it can help and other people say it hurts you.
2.) Should I wait and see if H.R gets a hold of me, or should I go to the store that i'm trying to get hired in at and ask them about my application?

Every business has its own style. What is the office environment and culture like at Toys 'r' Us?
Are people dressed in business casual, jeans and t-shirts, or full-on suits? Do folks get together for Friday happy hours and friendly get-togethers?
