Topics regarding layoffs at Toys "R" Us

It's just a matter of time

It looks like TRU is on the list of retailers that are on death watch for 2018. No real surprise there, I guess, but it still kills that little bit of hope I was holding on to. Right now we need a miracle to survive past this year, and I doubt it's... read more

Excuses, ...Sales..Stop It Already,...

Ask the people affected by this why they were all laid off, your perspective and assumptions might change. If you havent been affected by this, sales and websites aren't the only reasons why this company is where it's at, just ask "Us" who have and... read more

Media said Holiday sales were good

If even toy sales are down 15% at Christmas, how in the world could overall sales be good? On this board I see sears, wal-mart, all big retailers had a bad holiday season, REALLY bad. Don't tell me Amazon did it either, Amazon is a small fraction of... read more

This will be a bad holiday season for Toys R Us

The TRU bankruptcy has caused vendors to restrict the amount of goods they ship to TRU due to lower customer demand for the upcoming holiday shopping period. Many consumers will look elsewhere to shop this year because of the uncertainty of TRU... read more

Should I quit or wait it out?

Unlike a bunch of people, I actually like my job at Toys "R" Us. I got good colleagues, fair managers, and a decent pay (I am not saying those who are complaining are wrong, just saying I got lucky.) This situation, however, scares me a lot. I have... read more

Bankruptcy has been filed, now what?

This is a truly scary time for all of us working at Toys "R" Us. Bankruptcy might not mean the end for the company, but it will certainly mean the end for a big number of stores and layoffs for employees. I just wonder when will we know what stays... read more



I find it disgusting that being laid off and just finding out now that someone that I've known for years got hired months after me, (when supposedly over 300 were laid off, no news, social media reports, ect) in another store for a full-time... read more

List of Toys R Us Stores Closing

A comprehensive list of TRU stores that will be closing in 2017 and 2018 is needed. I'd like to find out what stores will close as I am doing an analysis of the sector. Specifically, I'd like to know: Location Number of Employees Laid off Reasons for... read more

Blinded R Us

How come the people who were laid off were NOT acknowledged via any social media, especially TV, NEWS? Why is it we see and hear of other companies, such as ex: 350 Gymboree stores closing recently all over the news, twitter, ect, because of... read more

Bye bye Joe.

Guess Venezia decided to bail while he still could. He is now President of Bridgestone Tires, as of July 19. Toy sales are plummeting, and the Baby side is getting cut big time. And supposedly, BRU is the only thing that was making money for the... read more

Store Layoffs

Are the store layoffs still proceeding or are they over ? The company has posted nothing about store layoffs. How many were laid off ?

So, it started

So it looks like Gear and Registry for the most part, with a few exceptions. Really, I think they could pick who they want to let go, then move everyone else around like they usually do. I've held 3 different DS positions in the 6 years I was there... read more

The problem with them

I was a store manager for them and had positive gains, reduced turnover and improved customer relations in every store the placed me in. I enjoyed leading and developing my associates and several of them became store managers. The problem with them... read more

culture s---s and leadership contradicts itself

so id two of our key "SMACS" tlast year was to growth own brands and digital, why has Brandon fired our own brand teams (third year in a row) and most of the digital online team!. Probably upset because he's not getting $18m like last year!!

Time to get off this ship

This was a good company once, but nowadays I can't think any good reason to stay here. I hate to say it, but this company has some serious issues, and I don't think things will improve soon. These series of layoffs are killing everyone's morale. Even... read more

Management sucks, favoritism is rampant and hr is a joke

Why is this company bad? I'll explain some of it here:

Do you really want to know how bad this company is? I'm still, to this day, not getting paid for my overtime because my salaried managers edited my time card to only show 40 hours, when I have clearly worked more... and be promised for my time, even... read more

So by 2017 will there be any DS positions at all?

With the E&E department supervisor roles being cut and the combining of other roles it begs the question if TRU will soon have no full time positions. For a retail chain that only uses 25 to 50 people per store I have to wonder how that would work... read more

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.
