Bain Capital will ask for layoffs that is why they hired David Brandon

Stay away! If you're unemployed, it's better to stay that way until you find a normal job with a normal company.

I worked at TRU Corporate for over 10 years in their IT dept. Literally every year around February, the layoff rumors would begin, and sure enough, layoff would happen. Management never met an employee they couldn't outsource. Everything you read here is true: they will work you to death; you will ... read more

So many layoffs beware. It is a scary place to work. Don't recommend. Stay away if you want a long term career.

Management only cares about themselves and workers work like dogs. No incentives to work hard. Hours are not realistic. STAY AWAY.

More DS Positions are going away soon.

Seems once the yearly evaluations begin more DS positions are going to be eliminated as a cost cutting move. Should be limited to personal not essential to daily operations, such as most sales floor DS roles or the Price/Signage position.

Wow, that position was useless anyway.

Are Order Manager Supervisors in all Toys R Us Stores being laid off?

I was told a week ago that all Order Management Supervisor Positions are being laid off due to downsizing. I was heartbroken and shocked. This would be the first time I was being laid off in any sort of position I've worked in. I feel so helpless.

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. Middle management regularly puts in 12 to 14 hour days plus weekends. Some do not take vacation days because afraid they will lose ... read more

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?


(Sat 12/14/13 01:27:17 UTC)

I hate my job

And I never heard about layoffs at TRU...
