Working at Toys R Us sounds like a dream come true for anyone who ever walked among its towering displays of action figures, Hot Wheels, Barbies, and video games. While many people fantasize about working there, most people fail to truly understand what it's like to work at Toys R Us. The actual experience isn't all playing with toys (although it does include that once your day finishes). When you get to the heart of it, major Toys R Us horror stories exist from employees across the nation. Toys R Us employees tell stories about everything from being bitten by children to selling Nerf-guns to legions of college students.
Toys R Us is a retail store like any other, so you'll find bad customers and weird policies just like you'll find at stores like Game Stop and Hot Topic. Some of these Toys R Us employee stories remain unique to the business of selling toys to kids and their parents, a combination that heightens tensions during the holiday season, as you'll see from the Reddit users below. If you ever worked at a Toys R Us, some of these might be relatable. If you're a customer, these might help you a little with understanding the store's inner workings.
