Wayne-based Toys”R”Us® today, announced plans to hire 45,000 seasonal employees at its stores and distribution centers nationwide, more than doubling the company’s workforce as it prepares for the busy holiday shopping months ahead. Seasonal staff plays a vital role in delivering upon the company’s mission to bring joy into the lives of its customers across the country as traffic in Toys”R”Us stores and online surges in the weeks leading up to Christmas. These seasonal positions, which include sales associates, stock crew and omnichannel fulfillment teams, as well as distribution center workers and department managers, can also serve as a path to non-seasonal employment.
“As THE toy authority, moms, dads and gift-givers are counting on us to provide them with expert toy advice as they search for the perfect present, all while offering exceptional service and a memorable shopping experience,” said Mark Eberly, Vice President, Human Resources, Toys”R”Us, U.S. “We’re looking for dedicated, customer-centric employees who will strive to help shoppers deliver a great Christmas for the little ones in their lives whenever, wherever and however they choose to shop with us this holiday season. Ensuring we are fully staffed with knowledgeable employees is integral as we look to assist customers in crossing off items on their children’s wish lists.”
Interviewing for holiday positions at Toys”R”Us stores begins at the end of September and new hires start working in early October. Staffing continues to build throughout the holiday season right up to Christmas. Seasonal store employees typically work 16 to 20 hours per week with flexible schedules offered during the week, weeknights or weekends. Employment opportunities are also available at the company’s distribution centers nationwide, which began hiring in July and will continue through November.Related Articles:
