Cashier (Former Employee) – Hamilton, ON – 3 January 2018
I would show up about an hour early since I had to take the bus to work. I'd grab a quick breakfast, punch in after eating and went to work. Would go onto a register and sign in, then immediately help the customers. I tended to ring their items through fairly quickly which helped when the line exceeded the registers. I was trained on cash as I was a seasonal employee. The management team was very professional. They couldn't have been any more helpful when it came to training and explaining how the store worked. The hardest part of the job was knowing that I might not have been kept on for part-time after the seasonal contract was up. Making mistakes like giving the customer the wrong change or forgetting to give the customer their items when they purchased so much. The more enjoyable part was meeting and talking to the customers, as well as learning new skills that will benefit me in the future.
coworkers were awesome! there wasnt a whoole lotta of praise between employees and management. not a lot of training you are expected to learn things on your own which can be tricky when you are with customers.

The majority of Toys R Us seasonal employees work part-time. In traditionally entry-level positions, Toys R Us seasonal associates earn starting pay just over minimum wage, on average. Toys R Us may permanently hire on workers after the end of the holiday season for increased wages. Even though i didn't I love and will miss everyone there.

Genuinely a fun place to work. You get to experience so many different customers and help them find different things. I worked in the baby dept. and it was honestly so rewarding helping new parents find what they needed and answering their questions about different things.
great place to work if you are great at selling store warranty

Cashier (Former Employee) – Calgary, AB – 22 November 2017
the most enjoyable part of the job is working with people you get along with, as well as the days we get stock of things such as (hatchimals) the way the kids get excited, just brought a smile to my face. The managers were all very kind and caring
500/Warehouse (Former Employee) – Whitby, ON – 22 November 2017
Co-workers made all the difference, learned a lot about toys and educational sets, bike repairs, and assembling the demo furniture and the fixtures. Management wasn't always thrilled about individual thinking and protected themselves to a point where any complaint about the director or assistant director to head office was given to said individuals to handle. They preferred to have their favorites in store over hard workers
