Pros

Fun environment to work around. Plenty of new faces everyday such as celebrities like Andre Johnson for the Houston Texans.

Cons

The only downside about any retail store is working holidays which means tons of people with tons of attitudes which leads to massive stress.

    Pros

    "OK" pay
    Fun people to work with; managers really get to become friendly with everyone.
    Work with you on days off

    Cons

    Scheduling can be a total mess.
    Holiday season is terrifying--even for someone who has worked at a store during holiday season before.
    Customers are very quick to become cranky and will always blame the first person they see.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Give your stores more leeway--our management would have definitely jumped at the chance to accommodate us and make us feel more comfortable if they had the monetary means to do so.

    I worked at Toys ''R'' Us

    Pros

    - Worked around class schedule (for the most part)
    - Decent pay 9.50 an hour
    - Most co-workers were friendly

    Cons

    - Management treats its part-time employees like full-timers (had trouble with outside work obligations even though they had said was fine during interview process)
    - Closing Slavery - Not being able to leave the store when your shift is over because you have to stay and clean (sometimes 3 to 4 hours longer than your already 8 to 9 hour shift.... but people who work a morning or mid shift can just walk out the door when they are done)
