Charles Lazarus would not be proud of what TRU has become.

Upper management is completely out of touch with the workload of middle management and the actual people who get the work done. Supervisors are all talk and no help.

With recent layoffs, I am very happy I no longer work there.

Wayne will be hit but we are not sure if the stores will be affected at some point. Ever since we went private again it has been all about saving and cutting, I am not aware that any company become successful by cutting resources. So, New Jersey - get ready...

Frequent Layoffs

At Toys'r'Us gossip is rampant, nepotism and favoritism is wide spread, promotions are not merit based, no discount perks, crazy workload, layoffs are frequent. Expect issues in 2014, we had layoffs in 2013 as well.

How much vacation time does a new Toys R Us employee get?

Also, do I have to work every weekend, or, can I get some weekends off? What's the best time of day to work, I know TRU is busy on weekends, but what about weekdays and during the day?
