Guest Service Team Member (Former Employee) – Carle Place, NY – February 6, 2016
There are many mixed reviews on this place if one were to scour the internet looking for them. The locations are different therefore management is as well. Being a cashier is the easiest way to learn customer service skills. Management is overworked and underpaid. Everyone is overworked and underpaid for a less than living wage. The hardest part of the job is getting along with the employees you need to get a long with. Popularity matters in the location I worked in. I enjoyed seeing the kids and helping parents make the right choices based on experience.
Cashier (Seasonal) (Former Employee) – Valley Stream, NY – February 1, 2016
While working at Toys R Us, during seasonal it was very fast paced and busy. I learned how to interact with customers better being able to boost my communication skills. The manager were very helpful but not all the time, I think they could be a little better in how they handled certain situations, but as for my co-workers, they made it a fun work environment. The most hardest part of the job was trying to encourage customers to apply for the store credit card, and the most enjoyable part was helping many people just to put a smile on their faces.
The Bad and Bad with TRU (JUST the store I worked at)
Shipping/Receiving Supervisor and Key holder (Former Employee) – New York, NY – January 31, 2016
Working with a large number of customers, working on sock, keyholding, visual, register, all at the same time, all the time for months. Little chance to properly advance. This ONLY applies to the store I worked at, I'm sure it's not the same universally.
Schedule towards the end
Doing the job of 6 people by myself and getting paid insufficiently, hard work didn't advance you, insufficient ayroll help to spread out all the duties I was forced to patake in
Sales Associate (Former Employee) – Yonkers, NY – January 29, 2016
I was here for seasonal so it was pretty busy all the time. I loved all the people that I worked with. It was a fun environment, I enjoyed working there. Best part was closing because you could stay later and gain more hours. That was plus. What I didn't like was closing also because of all the re-shop you had to do. It was always a lot of re-shop items in a lot of carts but it was very time consuming.
you could call in for shifts, you could do overtime on certain days
Sales Associate (Current Employee) – South Attleboro, MA – January 28, 2016
Seasonal position included promised hours, over time hours and call in's. Good work environment with other employees, fast paced with good teamwork. Regional managers and store managers gave posotive attitude all the time, always helped customers and workers.
30 minute break, able to carry a drink as long as not open infront of customers
Customer Service/ Sales Associate (Former Employee) – Colorado Springs, CO – January 28, 2016
Full time jobs rarely come up, they start at minimum wage. When it comes to raises they get by cheaply as possible. Good work could earn you only ten cents, which isn't really worth it. Don't get sick, because even with doctors notes they will get rid of you. Management is difficult to deal with, don't really care about their employees. I wouldn't even waste my time applying here.
