    I have been working at JAKKS Pacific full-time

    Pros

    It's a great atmosphere to work in (CSR department) , great products for the most part and you get good experience in costumer service.

    Cons

    - Very below industry pay rate. Especially for all of the hats you are expected to wear.
    - Almost impossible to get promoted.

    - Absolutely no training. It's sink or swim, and that's literally how managers will explain it to you. Especially with very specialized projects... you will feel totally lost and uncomfortable with.

    Advice to Management

    Invest in your employees, especially the ones who put forth the effort to learn and take on more.

    Application

    I applied through a recruiter. I interviewed at JAKKS Pacific (Santa Monica, CA).

    Interview

    It was very straight forward and quick, I met with the director and supervisor. Mostly it was about showcasing your portfolio, talk about your design process and if you were familiar with the brand.
