Toys"R"Us, Inc.

Toys"R"Us® today announced plans to hire approximately 45,000 seasonal employees to staff its Toys"R"Us and Toys"R"Us Express pop-up stores in the U.S. this holiday season, essentially doubling its domestic workforce. This number is greater than the total workforce the company hired during each of the last three holiday shopping seasons due to the addition of 600 new Toys"R"Us Express stores. In previous holiday seasons, the company has hired approximately 35,000 toy-trained employees to help gift-givers find the RIGHT toy for the children on their lists this Christmas.

"Toys"R"Us is a classic destination for Christmas shopping, and one of the ways we differentiate ourselves is by employing and training associates who can make sound toy buying recommendations based on a child's specific needs and interests," said Dan Caspersen, Executive Vice President, Human Resources, Toys"R"Us, Inc. "We're pleased that we can create thousands of new jobs as we double our workforce nationwide in preparation for another busy shopping season in our stores."

Traffic in Toys"R"Us stores peaks in the weeks leading up to Christmas, and the company's expanded holiday workforce plays an integral part in providing an enjoyable in-store experience for shoppers during this time. Of the 45,000 total hired, 35,000 employees will staff the company's 587 traditional Toys"R"Us stores, while the company will continue to fill 10,000 positions at approximately 600 Toys"R"Us Express stores in malls and other shopping centers. Seasonal workers will also be hired in the company's nine Distribution Centers across the country. As it does each year, Toys"R"Us will provide existing employees with the opportunity to take on additional hours throughout the holiday season at their current site or at an alternate Toys"R"Us location. During the non-holiday period, Toys"R"Us employs approximately 45,000 associates in the U.S.

Each year, following the holiday season, the company strives to find extended roles for high performing seasonal employees. In the past, seasonal and part-time workers have gone on to full-time positions at the company. Substantial long-term growth opportunities exist for hardworking seasonal employees at Toys"R"Us.

"At Toys"R"Us, we love kids, so we are looking for enthusiastic and diligent employees who enjoy working in a fun and fast-paced atmosphere and assisting customers in selecting gifts that are sure to bring happiness to children on Christmas morning," said Caspersen.

There are numerous seasonal opportunities available at Toys"R"Us stores, ranging from managerial roles and sales associate positions to back-of-house stock employees and distribution center crews. To accommodate its workers, Toys"R"Us offers flexible schedules during the week and on weekends.
