Toys R Us Work from home job?

November 12, 2007 7:11pm CST
Anyone do it or ever heard of it? I came across this website and on the forum people were talking about working as what appears to be a call center from home for Toys R Us. Of course, when I asked how to get an interview, etc. (from the information I was reading on the posts) - nobody even responded but it seems like an awful lot of people were during it and I think one of the moderators of the forum is either the trainer or manager, etc. because they are allowed to switch shifts, get help, etc. right on the forum. Anyone know of this? I googled it and nothing came up.

I am not sure what site you were referring to. A lot of companies contract out with other companies and they do the hiring for them so its possible Toys R Us is doing that thats why you can't find anything. I have two great sites you might want to check out, and see if you find any info for this company wahm.com and workplacelikehome.com.

A lot of companies hire at home customer service agents. You usually have to have had previous experience and have a quiet at home enviroment. I just checked out Toy R Us's corporate site and they have no telecommuting positions available at this time.

I haven't heard anything of the sort, but if you do get more info, it would be great if you shared it. Thanks.

wow that's great to hear! Let me know what happens because I need a job at home and somethign like this would be great. I need a real job that pays by the hour and everything I've looked up either wants you to invest money or buy or sell something..

I never heard of it but I can see why they wouldn't respond to you...lol..they want to keep it all to themselves and their friends. What a great job that would be. If you didn't find it googling it then there must not be anything...but I'm going to do some searching myself. I'll let you know if I find anything!

I called Toys R Us customer service during the evening a couple of weeks ago about a complaint I had with a store manager. I am certain the lady I was speaking to on the phone was working at a remote location (like her own home). There are a number of companies that are hiring people to handle customer service calls at home. Home workers are hired by outside companies so you don't find the jobs on the company websites. Nearly all require that you have a totally quiet area where you will be working. Usually you have to have high speed internet connection and a land-line phone as minimum basic requirements although some do the phone calls through the computer program. Some require you to pay for a background check and other misc. expenses before being hired while others do not. Some pay for training, some do not. Some of the jobs pay hourly, some pay based on the number of calls you handle. Other of the jobs are actually acting as order takers and you can earn more based on your ability to sell more to the customers. You just need to be careful when selecting a company because for every legit company there are many that are around just to rip people off.

I've never heard of it either, but you'd have to make sure you had a very quiet house. Probably just pick up shifts when no one else is home.
