    Pros

    Friendly work environment, able to take time off.

    Cons

    Not enough hours, staff are not trained, no growth opportunities, if you take time off expect your hours to be permanently cut.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Management should know more than their employees and not expect experience employees to pick up their slack

    I have been working at Toys ''R'' Us part-time (less than a year)

    Pros

    Fun environment, Good for a high school student looking for part time work. Fun work, Great managers. The interview was a little degrading but other then that it was a good experience.

    Cons

    the interview was a little degrading, the lunch shifts were short and there isnt anywhere to eat around. Other then that the job was easy, not challenging,

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    I would recommend giving longer lunches since there isnt anywhere close to eat and not many people bring there lunch from home. Especially if they are working full time.

    Pros

    Very upbeat and exciting to work for, specifically during the holiday season. The training and on boarding process was quick and easy.

    Cons

    Very little feedback or development was used after the initial hiring process so you were a little in the dark on your performance.
