    Dont forget to be polite, say things like Yes Sir
    and Yes Ma'am. also if you want to make some cash on the side. When you get in a shipment of Hot
    Wheels cars,there are a series called Tresure
    Hunt cars,very limited editions, and new editions
    these can be sold on e-bay for some extra cash, some of the Treasure hunt cars sell for $15-25.
    check out some of the auctions, also there are
    some news groups on the net that have the serial numbers of the cases that have these cars in them.:)

    Thanks! You just gave me an idea for a new place to work. I am currently employed at a steak house loading and carrying trays of food for $5.15 an hour with no tips, plus they refuse to give me a raise. Anyways good luck!

    Oh, man. Memories. My first job was working at Toys R Us as a cashier, and then stocking and facing on the sales floor.

    My friends had the impression that life in a toy store was a magical fun land where we danced on giant keyboards on the floor and helped guests by riding skateboards around the store.

    If only they knew...

    I'm not trying to scare you, but ask any department store which area gets trashed the most during the day, and they'll usually say "Toys". Kids like to pick up things, throw things, drop things, defecate on things (true story!)... and just think, your whole store is one big Toy section. :D
