Assistant Store Manager (Current Employee) – Swansea, MA – May 15, 2018
I worked for Toys R Us for 32 years I learned How to focus on the big picture and to use all of my knowledge to train other employee's to work efficiently to complete company initiatives. The hardest part of my job will be leaving it.
Seasonal Sales Associate (Former Employee) – Douglaston, NY – May 15, 2018
Although the job can be fun because of some of the people you work with, the hours weren't that flexible and if the manager asked you to stay longer, you wouldn't really have much of a choice. During the holiday season, the hours were incredibly long and tiring but some of the coworkers made it worth it.
On a typical day in my position I fulfilled management tasks of opening and closing the building, as well as overseeing a staff of 7 to 10 individuals. Throughout the day I completed various administrative duties as well, replenishing the store, checking emails for any new directions, and greeting customers. I also provided strong customer service and resolved customer issues. I work with a great management team who care and also love their job like i do. I've learned how to run a big box store.
Working in big box store there is more room to move up
Cashier/Customer Service (Current Employee) – Council Bluffs, IA – May 14, 2018
I’ve only been a seasonal employee but it’s one of my most favorite places to work. The managers are very nice and so are the rest of the employees. If the company wasn’t closing I’d work there for another year or two.
Operations Assistant Manager (Current Employee) – El Paso, TX – May 14, 2018
Typical day would be review emails, check payroll, account for all team members to show up and provide direction to what needed to be worked on. Open store and process deposit on day is was going to get picked up. When closing the store I would make sure to walk around and help any customers that needed help looking for certain toys or product. I would also cashier when needed. Handled any customer complaints without getting to corporate level. Also I would be scheduled to unload a truck and merchandise it to the floor and process it within a certain time frame. Hardest part was when employees would call off and other employees would not answer their phones. The most enjoyable part of my job was when I would put a smile on children's faces when looking for their favorite toy.
STOCKER/PACKER (Former Employee) – Allentown, PA – May 14, 2018
Everyone was really friendly, they helped you if needed, I was on the overnight shift and they allowed music the entire shift. Ive never had experience in packing and shipping, I cought on easily and I realized how swift and correctly I did the task.
Early Morning Team Associate (Former Employee) – Sarasota, FL 34238 – May 14, 2018
A typical day at Babies R Us was going in early to help unload trucks and stock shelves before the store opened to the public and then when the store opened occasionally help customers but generally would scan and stock the back room.
I learned to take direction and work as a team.
The management, in my opinion, was very kind and helpful. When you needed help with something or had a question about something they were usually there for you.
The workplace culture was good, everyone got along for the most part and were able to work together.
I'd say the hardest part of the job was sometimes dealing with irate customers and having to describe to them what some of the products do.
I got to work with a good group of people and everyone helped in the back room.
