Ask a former employee of Toys R Us anything.
I'm currently reflecting on how big of a fuck up that job was and wanna rant and answer questions.
Literally fill up your shopping cart and walk out with it. Once you're out of the parking lot there's nothing people can do.
I've had friends who just take out shopping carts full of product (not at the store I worked at) and would not get caught.
Depends on the brand. What hasbro stuff are you talking about?
I pretty much would always go back and check to make sure we had it. I'd take my time doing it though because fuck being out on the floor.
Telling them we had it was great though because then I could sometimes get them on the additional plans/credit card sign ups.
We'd almost always run out of video games though and rarely got more stock in. There's a much smaller room for the video games/accessories than the actual back room.
Yeah, it's really ridiculous how easy it is. Obviously not taking the stuff with the security tags, but enough smaller stuff to add up was the best way they'd get profit.
In my store, Amiibo get put out ASAP unless there's already an ASSLOAD of them already on the shelf like Villager/Mii.
Old overstocked Infinity and Skylanders are the only ones that get stuck in the back.
Street dated/register locked items, naturally, stay in the back unless someone doesn't pay attention.
Did you enjoy the Coach PK show? How many BPPs did you get? Ddi you sell enough Rewards Cards? You didn't forget to ask about Batteries did you? DID YOU?! SO HELP ME GOD IF YOU FORGOT TO ASK ABOUT BATTERIES!
I remember laughing my ass off at some of the Power Wheel displayers. I can't remember which one in particular, but it had a video screen that showed this commercial of the kid driving and it was all "action packed" and then...in the most bored, mundane voice the guy goes "...realistic...driving...action."
Yes. white people are so perfect. They never steal and if they do, it's just a harmless prank bro.
>mfw it was that easy to shoplift all along
There's never anything the back. Managers want shit out and sold, so nobody would tell you not to unless it was on street date.
I used to go back to the back and stand around if the person was a cock. But if I knew we had something in the back for some reason, and someone needed it, I'd help them out.
But most of the time? Stand in the back. Because people don't accept you know what you're talking about, no, you have to do a puppet show for their tiny minds.
this, I work part time in auto parts and it comes down to how you approach me: if you come off as a dick, I'll just go sit in the back for 5 minutes and go on 4chan while I take my time making it look like I was searching
Didn't there used to be a lot of stuff in the back before at TRU? I remember my grandparents asking quite a few times in the past and they'd pull out whatever cool stuff they had. My grandparents are 10/10 people so that might be why.
Did you ever steal a toy from the stock room you wanted? Did you know anyone who used to? Even if you didn't do you think it would have been pretty easy for you to do so if you really wanted to ?
The cameras feed into the office, they always had a tv in there wit the lI've fred when I was in there. Our store only had four or five real cameras. Back of house, front desk, r zone closet, and boys side/babies r us side. The rest were dummies.
I dunno brevs, I worked the door at christmas there once as my first job. The store detective (aka bouncer) would run pictures of known thieves and suspicious characters by me and call him if any are spotted, in no uncertain terms he would fuck your shit up.
>not just having the coach PK shit run and do something else until it finished
I never watch the retarded product knowledge vids. A lot is just common sense bullshit.
Also fuck the batteries, fuck the BPPs. Stockers/early crew are best. Get dibs on shit, stock the aisles, set the aisles, learn the most and barely deal with retard customers.
Toys R Us has always been my dream job. Ever since I was a kid I lusted over the thought of being surrounded by a shit ton of toys and videos games and being able to learn bout them and sell them.
This thread is making me second guess my desire to work there.
This is one of those situations where you reeeeally shouldn't follow your dreams.
I'm not OP but I can confirm every TRU is the same and they all are awful to work for.
If you really want to see for yourself get a seasonal position next holiday season but I'd advise against.
It's sorta like having christmas everyday or going to a theme park everyday. It loses it's magic quickly and you lose it also to shitty customers and not being there for fun but for work.
It's not great, honestly.
Well, I worked at the warehouse (processing online orders) and it's overrated. That said, it is a little fun to be packing and shipping 50+ Legacy Tigerzords or some shit, and reading the little comments the customers would leave for us or whoever's receiving the parcel.
Worked there for years, while i love my job to an extent its ruined by puppet ignorant managers who are just hired to to what the emails tell them too. Thats why things are such trash at those stores in part.
So wait. My fuckup in attempting to steal from walmart was because I parked in the parking lot? I could have been as bold as I wanted and been fine as long as I had just walked away?
When you work at TRU it's basically like learning all the most horrible things ever.
Our Geoffrey, for instance, was our retarded janitor who they made wear the costume because nobody else would. Every time kids would come and take pictures with Geoffrey? Hanging out with the retarded janitor who was wiping down windows and cleaning up those unflushed toilets (seriously, fuck people, why don't you flush in public????) a few hours earlier.
No such person at the stores I've worked at. They'd rather let someone walk off with merchandise than have to pay for an employee getting hurt or killed going after the thieves.
At least with the rewards card you get points and keep track of receipts. It's much scummier trying to sell the BPP/square trades.
There were cameras, but they were used for watching employees for the most part. No one ever sat in a room and watched the feeds, but they had tape to refer to in case something happened.
how was it at the warehouse? Only warehouse job I've worked was paid ass and the environment was hostile
left that fuckin shithole in a week
