I just applied to Toys "R" Us, lol.

If I DO get the job, it would be my first and it doesn't seem like too bad of a place to start off with. I mean, come on. It's a TOY store.

So does anyone have any experience with working at Toys R Us?

Do they have those giant cages with rubber balls in them? If so, everyday cut the ropes holding them in.

So I was wondering, are black people capable feeling love? I mean can their brains comprehend that kind of emotion, or are they not programmed that way.

Oh man.... I WOULD LOVE THAT JOB!!!!

I imagine that job would suck... You'd have to deal with snotnosed kids berating their parents for useless crap all day. Probably pays crap, too.

Busing/ waiting tables/ dishwashing pays much better and usually isn't all that difficult or stressful. My first job was busing tables at a pub, now I wait tables at a retirement home.

I'm going to change my name to Toys R. Us.

"Hey baby, do you want to come with me to Toys R. Us?"

"Yes please, mister, I'd love that!"

All I need to do then is use my l33t audio editting software to edit out the word "to" in my original proposition and I've got an air tight consent in the bag.

if they didn't notice you stopped you should have kept 'doing the job' and then you would have got free money

Washing dishes. Just lost it yesterday because the business is losing loads of money and they're getting rid of loads of people and hardly opening the restaurant. I'm not too bothered though, 'cos I hated it and was planning on quitting soon anyway.

dishwashing is fucking soul destroying.

i work as a pot washer at a restaurant that's packed every night.

6 hours on my feet, no break, boiling, soaking wet, doing the same thing over and over as fast as you possibly can, with waiters bawling if there's a water stain on ANYTHING.

sounds lovely.

anddddd you have to empty every bin in the restaurant, check the toilets, and clean up whatever the waiters fuck up. my job title is kitchen porter, which i found out on my third day meant everything boy.

fucking shit.

oh, and did i mention the shit hours? 6-close everyshift, and depending on whether they actually get someone to help you, close can be one in the morning.

love it.

First paid job was on a building site for a few weeks 3 summers ago... Got to work outside all day, it was hard work but excellent pay, and gave me excellent experience.

the first thing that i got paid to do was ref hockey games. Of course my first hockey game ever ended up being 5-4 with one minute left in the game and the losing team got a break away and the kid got pulled down. It sucked cause i was like ****! I ended up calling a tripping penelty when the kid should have gotten a penelty shot....whatever though.

My first real job though I welded for an ironworks company. Good money but long hours.
#16
i applied at a toys r us once but got a job at a grocery store instead (applied there at the same time)
either way, just hand out a bunch of applications, and yeah it should be an alright job, as long as you can put up with crying kids and nagging parents (something that can come with many jobs)
good luck!

You will be working with kids. And I for one, can't stand kids.

My job is waiting on tables in a restaurant, I can't stand that either.

That would be a sweet job but don't expect to get the job. Apply at as many places as you can because of the condition the economy is in right now.

Sadly, I am stuck working at Burger King and it blows...


Ya apply to as many places as you can. I applied to 10 jobs before I got my first lol

my first job (and job application) was at Toys 'R' Us when I was 16. My birthday is also May 5 but I live in England ...
Good luck
edit: it's not all that it's cracked up to be. I would've stayed longer (only stayed 4 months and a bit) but I had to consider that I would be doing worse at college. It was ok though and there are worse jobs apparently.
