Cashier and Sales Associate (Former Employee), Bellingham, MA – July 9, 2014
Pros: variety of responsibilities, friendly customers
Cons: not many benefits, minimum wage
I worked as a sales associate assisting customers on the floor however I believed that management was more focused on building their credit and rewards program client base than actually assisting customers to find the products they need. Overall I enjoyed working at Toys 'R' Us during the year I spent there. The part I liked most about my job was the – more... variety of tasks I was expected to perform. In a single day I could be working with customers, stocking and labeling products, changing displays or working with the back of house. – less

Front Store Cashier (Former Employee), Frisco, TX – July 8, 2014
Pros: fun enviornment, nice people
Cons: not fast paced enough
I was a cashier so I stood at the front all day. I did not have many things on my workload but I always kept busy with something. The hardest part was standing as this was my first job back from having a baby. The best part was my co-workers they really helped me get by.

Department Supervisor (Current Employee), Clarence, NY – July 3, 2014
Pros: fun, fast paced work enviroment
Cons: out of season its slow and hours are scarce.
I started as a Department Supervisor and was responsible for the largest department in the store. My tasks included making sure that my department was always cleaned and fully stocked. I rotated in new products while marking down in price older products so that as new inventory came into the store I always had adequate space to display everything. During – more... resets I had to rearrange entire sections of my department by reorganizing entire shelves and taking all the out dated and expired products off the floor while making sure that the new products were properly displayed and labeled for the guest. Shortly after starting I was given the opportunity to learn the roles and responsibilities of other supervisors and members of the management. I was taught how to use our handheld scanners and track inventory and to make adjustments if counts were off in anyway. I learned the truck processing steps and how to quickly and efficiently within our stores SOP's unload a truck and make sure its o n the floor correctly and ready for the customers when the store opens. – less

Cashier/Sales Associate (Former Employee), Paramus, NJ – July 1, 2014
My typical day started as soon as I hit the door, after I clocked in the first thing to do was greet all the guest and make sure they found everything they needed. Also, I would clean the store; make sure everything was in the correct order and hand out any flier that we had going on for the week. I learned how to order things from the company’s website, – more... how to set customers up with the Toys R Us credit card and rewards card, and also how to stock a complete area. Overall, the most enjoyable part of it all was working with the kids, and helping everyone that walked into the store. – less
