I enjoyed working at ToysRus it was fun I enjoyed how they put on special things for kids everyone was so friendly and helpful was sad to leave as I was only seasonal, management is understanding and fair they will try to accommodate you as best possible, I loved working for them I will keep applying until I'm hired on as a permanent employee even i its seasonal
I don't have much to say except for it's a great place to work! From beginning to end I never had any problems I loved working with the people I was working with and management was awesome! I also loved how you can cross the street and go and get a discount at burger baron and a discount at Canadian Tire. Here in Regina, Saskatchewan.
Poor management at store level as well as corporate. Will change your schedule last minute to suit their needs. It's a gamble if you'll get notified when they no longer need you.
Management's poor scheduling becomes your problem.
We were so low staffed, all of us ended up having to do everything even if it wasn’t what we applied for. I usually worked 3-9 but would always have to stay and clean up and face everything, my parents were not happen that they had to wait for 2 hours bc they wouldn’t let us leave when we were scheduled to leave. I would sometimes have to stay until 12-1 am.

Really enjoyed my time there. It was a contract job manager was great Working there was relaxing. Would be happy to go back there highly recommend working there as it’s the kind of atmosphere that makes you want to go to work
Atmosphere was great management was friendly
AVOID THIS PLACE(Mainly location)You can be used like a tool if you decide to actually lift weights.
I nearly worked here for 2 years and so far all I've did or been doing is having stressful thoughts which caused me to get depression(mainly because it hard to get a job in Winnipeg). Any human being could do a job but if you do so in this place and decide to work harder, you're only going to either hurt yourself or stress the heck out of your brain. There used to be manager there that did a good job making others feel welcome but ever since they left this place has become a nightmare under disguise. The assistant managers are rude and stressful. the head manager and shift manager are down right the most rude Canadians I've ever met in my life. The work is simple thus making it into a trap to be used. Every other co worker looks dead or either not wanting to discuss the their day mainly obviously due to management. there has been shop lifters left and right and they still have not brought security..
Free stress and depression
If you speak up, you'll be looked up like some sort of a child for standing up for yourself.
I worked in the “sports” outdoor area of the store and it got boring real quickly. Stocking was easy but boring because you couldn’t put to much out since there was limited space. There were some things that didn’t make sense, like if someone wanted to buy a bike you had to go all the way upstairs to check if we even had it in stock and then come all the way back down to let the customer know if it’s there or not. That could get real Intense and stressful if you had more than 2 people asking for a bike at the same time. Co workers were rude, literally heard 3 people talking about another employee who was new about how they were annoyed by them etc. Closing shifts were boring too. You are just going around the store tidying up areas for the last hour of being open. As far as advancing in the company I don’t see that happening with this location because everyone seems biased with the managers already.
You’re around toys
Other co workers, management, not a good work environment
I got hired on the spot at the job fair. This is my first time working retail (my work background is fast food) and this is also the first time I can say I feel respected in the workplace. Management goes out of their way many times a shift to let you know you are valued. Guests are respectful and treat you like a human. Co workers are kind and fun to be around. Until now, I never knew that there were workplaces in existence that could make you feel so good about being there, because you matter to them. It doesn’t matter if it’s slow enough to be boring, or so busy you don’t get a moment to collect your thoughts, you’re happy to be there because every interaction is a positive one and only makes you want to work harder to make a lasting impression. Thank you for giving me this opportunity, truly.
Treats in the break room, recognition, respect, communication, all of it
We only got one shirt.
I’ve worked at Toysrus for over 6 years. Unless you start as a cashier, you are provided with no training and you’re expected to learn everything on your own. If you schedule a day off, they “punish” you by scheduling you significantly less hours than usual for that period. The schedule is also never posted within the Alberta work labour standards, it’ll come out a day before your next scheduled shift. Managers will be passive aggressive towards you for weeks when you’re not able to pick up a shift for them. Management is super unprofessional and they don’t hesitate to call you out in front of the rest of the team. I do not think there’s a lot of room for growth within the company. I’ve been promised training in various position throughout the 6 years I’ve worked here and it’s never followed through. However, I’ll see brand new employees who have just started at Toysrus being “trained” in these positions. Seniority means nothing to them. Also not to mention that I’ve been sexually harassed at work several times and management does NOTHING. There was an incident a few weeks ago where I was sexually harassed by a customer and when I notified my manager she laughed and walked away. I tried to phone our “24hr/7 days a week” HR line and nobody answered or got back to me. This is Toysrus Southpark in Edmonton. I would strongly recommend considering your other options.
hours are not the greatest, they keep hiring people when the current people don’t get enough hours. great working environment, fun time and the bond is amazing. they make you family other then making you a co-worker. would definitely recommend if you’re new to a area and wanted to make new friends and feel comfortable in a workplace.
amazing people to work with
not enough hours
I once got yelled at in front of customers for organizing the barbies wrong. I was new. Great schedule flexibility and co workers. Overall too stressful and I never want to go back there.
Stressful, I cried a lot, so much to remember
Gained lots of experience, made good friends with some co workers. Great experience, I'm very glad that this was my first job as it helped me see what its like to work, especially during the holidays when things get hectic. Teaches how to manage your time, and work well under pressure.
