A great place to work part-time.
Cashier (Former Employee) – Kanata, ON – 21 August 2017
I worked at Toys R Us for about 8 months, and I had a great experience. My co-workers were friendly, and the management was great. It's pretty laid-back (except for Nov-Dec around the Christmas holidays, it gets crazy busy and you'll never leave your cash). Otherwise, it's relatively quiet. Sometimes I'd walk around the store piecing and making the shelves look nice, so I'd literally just organize toys. My favourite part though was 'Play Days' or toy demo days, where I'd demonstrate a new toy or get to play with the kids.
I really appreciated how lenient the management was when it came to my schedule, I was very busy in school so sometimes I had to call and say I couldn't come in, and they'd be understanding. I'm not sure if I just got lucky at my location, but they were awesome.
They treat their staff well. Treats in the staff room, pizza lunches, a fun game-filled Christmas party... I honestly really enjoyed it. I left because I moved across town and needed something full-time. I'd recommend applying.
Understanding and cool management, a fun and laid-back environment, flexible scheduling, treats in the staff room and pizza lunches, a fun game-filled Christmas party, toy demo days where you get to demonstrate a new toy and play with it with the kids.
Not many hours in the spring/summer, having to up-sell their Buyer Protection Plan on 80% of items.
