    I have been working at JAKKS Pacific full-time (more than 5 years)

    Pros

    JAKKS is a great place to be wether your fresh out of school or an old timer looking for excitement. Today your going one direction and tomorrow another. Some may not like that, but i've yet to meet anyone here that doesn't appreciate the fast paced, full throttle mentality that runs the company. Sure, you can do the plain ol' 9-5, But if you embrace the way we roll, it's one hell of a ride that you can't get enough of… Compensation is great, leadership is excellent and most important, you do still have a life outside of work.

    Cons

    The only real downer I can say (and I can only say it for a couple more months) is the location of one of our offices… IT's not the most commuter friendly...

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Keep doing what your doing. Its a great place to be!!!

    Application Details

    I applied through a recruiter. The process took 2 weeksinterviewed at JAKKS Pacific.

    Interview Details

    Nothing out of the ordinary. If your portfolio speaks for itself, it's not that difficult. Interviewed with VP of creative and a couple of directors. Everyone was very pleasant. It's a very busy place, so you have to demonstrate energy, confidence and get it done attitude.
    It helps if you have experience with licensor approval process, communicating with Hong Kong, photo shoots and packaging.
