Cashier/Customer Service (Former Employee), Orland Park, IL – May 14, 2014
Pros: baby information, discount
Cons: short breaks, no benefits
A typical day at work started either on the sales floor or register, I learned about a lot of different baby products and safety issues. Management was ok and my employees were nice. The hardest part of the job was all the heavy loading and the most enjoyable was learning more about baby products.
R-Zone and Electronics Department Specialist (Former Employee), jackson, tn – July 21, 2014
Cons: racism from supervisors
Working here is unpredictable. The store manager is hateful and puts all employees down. As an employee, I always hated going to work. The store manager would slander anyone that walked in the door. This includes employees and customers. She made everyone uncomfortable with her racist comments and disgust for people in general. She never cared about – more... the sale of a product to anyone that wasn't Caucasian. – less

I worked the night shift unloading trucks and stocking the sales floor for the Christmas Season. It was hard work that would not of been so hard if other employees had worked up to their potental. The pay was not much either.
Cashier/Sales Team Member (Former Employee), Florence, SC – July 16, 2014
A typical day at work would be assisting guests with questions about the different toys and products in the store. Depending on the time of year it is it can be either very fast paced or very slow. I learned a lot about customer service and going above and beyond to satisfy them the best way possible. Management was great in assisting with help and – more... taking care of the guests in a timely matter. Co-workers did good in assisting with back-up. The hardest part of the job was disappointing a customer when we didn't have something they wanted in stock. The most enjoyable part of the job was working in a kid friendly environment and being able to put a smile on the children's faces. – less

Floor Associate (Former Employee), Kansas City, MO – July 16, 2014
Pros: constant interaction with children when looking at toys.
The management could use some help. The arrangement of the store lacks organization. Most of my co-workers were ok to work with, however there were some that needed better cooperation skills, more of a Team Spirit. A day in the life at the greatest toy store, consisted of doing re-shop of merchandise that was returned. Assisting customers with their – more... purchases and gifting ideas. There were opportunities to assist in the refilling of merchandise to the main floor. – less

The hardest part of the was the different areas of stocking. The most enjoyable part was helping the people pick out the right merchandise to get.
Very structured environment with the ability to have fun as well.
