    Application Details

    I applied online – interviewed at Babies "R" Us.

    Interview Details

    I had a group interview with seven other candidates. We were given the opportunity to grab a few items from the store to "sell" to the other candidates and the interviewing managers. We also broke off into two groups and built a toy to "sell" out of Mega Blocks. It was my first group interview and it was pretty cool. After that, four of us went on to have an individual interview with the store manager, which was super easy and laid back. I was offered the job.

    Application Details

    I applied online. The process took 2+ weeksinterviewed at Babies "R" Us in December 2014.

    Interview Details

    Upon Completion of the Online Application I was contacted by HR with preliminary questions about availability. I was then asked if I would be able to come in for a group interview a few days later as that was the first available from the day I was originally contacted. The group interview consisted of 6 potential hires and the store manager and a department supervisor. The atmosphere of the group session was really laid back and offered a real comfortable experience. The first order of business was to introduce ourselves and give a brief summary of past work history and a little bit about ourselves (Favorite Toy). After each of us at the table had our turn we broke off in to 2 teams and was instructed to choose a toy on the table and come up with a infomercial trying to highlight its qualities, and why people should purchase the item. I felt like this was a valuable activity because it gave us a chance to build team bonding skills and commextions valuable to succeed in the store environment. When the group session was completed we broke off into our 1-on-1 interviews first with the department supervisors of the department in which we would be potentially placed, and then the store manager. Overall I would rate the experience as being personable and welcoming.

    I applied online. The process took a weekinterviewed at Babies "R" Us in October 2014.

    Interview Details

    Applied online and received a phone call about a group interview a couple days later. At the start eight of us sat in a room and introduced their selves which included your name and why you wanted the job. After that they asked everyone to name one toy they played with as a kid then they gave out papers so sign and we left the room waiting to be called back for 1 on 1 interview. Interview included them asking basic requirements of the job and some average interview questions. The manager just read all the questions off a sheet of paper didn't seem like he really cared on the answer. Afterwords they said they would call in 2-3 days but didn't hear back until the next week and it was by email not phone call.
