    Application Details

    I applied through college or university. The process took 2 days - interviewed at Toys ''R'' Us in November 2013.

    Interview Details

    They recruited me on campus - through the MBA program. There was a first round of interviews on campus. There was a second round at their corporate headquarters. They recruit from everywhere as they had candidates flown in from across the country. They paid for everything. The facility is very nice, test toy store, cafe, etc. The second round was an all day event. It was split into two halves - interview, and activities. 3 different people would interview back to back to back. During the other half you had to take a skills test (some simple math/patterns), a team building exercise & presentation, and also a meet & greet with current employers. They provided breakfast, lunch, and snacks (meet and greet). I was very impressed by the company and the staff. It is a casual dress environment (jeans). Questions were Behavioral.

    Application Details

    I applied online. The process took 1 week - interviewed at Toys ''R'' Us in March 2011.

    Interview Details

    Submitted resume directly through the company's site. 5 weeks later I received a call from HR and had a 45 minute phone screen. Following day I had a 30 min phone interview with a manager, then an on-site meeting 2 days later. Interviewed with 5 people (1 HR, 2 Mgrs and 2 Directors) at 30 minutes each. All of the interviews followed the same format: interviewer starts out by saying what they do at TRU, how long they've been there, ask you several behavioral questions from their list and then give you a chance to ask them a couple questions. Had only one quant question and it was an easy one related to gross margin and sales.

    I applied through college or university. The process took 3 days - interviewed at Toys ''R'' Us in January 2009.

    Interview Details

    The interview process kicked off with a meet and mingle with company executives, followed by an IQ test, i3 nterviews and then a group presentation.

    The interviews were pretty easy and straight forward - Tell me abt urself, Analytical and forecasting experiences, Wht TRU etc. I sold myself on why do you want to work for the company.

    The group presentation revolved around an imaginary product and its sale, concluding with sales pitch.

    Negotiation Details
    Should have negotiated better. I lost the edge mainly because of the delay in my acceptance, but am pretty sure would have gotten a better deal, if I had accepted offer earlier.
