You can search and apply for Babies R Us jobs directly through StartWire. We'll even track the status of your application for you, so you'll always be able to tell if your application has been read and if you're still being considered for the position you've applied for. Apply now
If you prefer, you can also apply for jobs on the Babies R Us hiring website. If you choose this application method, don't forget to come back and tell us about it so we can log your application and provide you with the organizational tools you need to keep your job search as efficient and organized as possible
At the very beginning of the application process, you will have the opportunity to connect your application to LinkedIn or Facebook. Connecting your social accounts isn't required, but if you choose to do so, Babies R Us will extract some of your personal information and use it to pre-populate some of the fields in the application for you (name, work history, etc). If you aren't comfortable connecting your social account, that's ok -- you can fill in all of your information manually.
At this point in the application process, you will need to create an account on the Babies R Us hiring site. To create your account, you will need to provide your name, address, phone number, and email address.
Once you create your account on their site, you will have the opportunity to upload your resume. We highly recommend taking advantage of this opportunity, as a well-crafted resume will give Babies R Us a much better idea of who you are and what you've accomplished than a standardized application form. You don't have to provide your resume, but if you have one, you should.
After you upload your resume, you will have to fill out the meat of the application. In this section you will be asked to provide your name, address, phone number, email address, pay expectations, criminal history, social security number, date of birth, availability, work experience, and education. If you don't have any work experience or education, you can remove those fields by clicking the 'remove' link on each section.
Once you provide all of your personal information, it will be time to take the assessment. The assessment is 58 questions long, and it's intended to help Babies R Us determine if you would make a good fit for their company.
If you've never taken an assessment before and aren't quite sure what to expect from this section, here are a few example questions to help you prepare:
“Compared to co-workers or friends, how influential can you be in advising a customer to make a purchase decision?”
“How important is it to you to meet new people on the job?”
“How often do you provide a friendly greeting to others?”
Don't be afraid to answer the questions strongly. Strongly agreeing or strongly disagreeing with a statement generally gives them a much better idea of who you are and how you would react to a situation than a neutral answer would.
Sometimes, assessment questions can be tricky, as we might act one way given one set of circumstances, and another way given another set of circumstances. In these cases, it's best to ask yourself what Babies R Us might be trying to learn about you by asking the question, and let that guide your answer.
When you submit your application to Babies R Us, you are providing them with consent to perform a pre-employment background check. If you do receive a job offer later on, it will be contingent upon passing this check.
You will also have to consent to a pre-employment drug screening. You must pass the drug test to become an employee of Babies R Us.
If you apply for a Babies R Us job through StartWire, we'll provide you with automatic updates on your application status. This way, you will always be able to check and see if your application has been read, and if you're still being considered for the position you applied for. Sign up now

Types of people Babies R Us wants to hire
Babies R Us places a lot of value on customer service and sales experience. If you have any relevant experience in those areas, you should do your best to emphasize that on your resume and job application. If you make it to the interview phase, you should also try to communicate your ability to work well with others, and your hard work ethic.
You must be at least 16 years old to work at Babies R Us.
