I have been working at JAKKS Pacific (More than 3 years)
Jakks is one of the best companies I've worked for - great culture and work environment. For the most part, there is good talent and people that are positive, energetic, and hard-working. I personally feel valued and appreciated for my work. Some nice employee benefits.
I can't think of anything significant.
Advice to Management
I am very happy at Jakks, and I think a lot of that comes from the leadership of the management. Keep up the good work.
I applied through an employee referral. I interviewed at JAKKS Pacific (Santa Monica, CA).
I was recommended by a friend/former coworker that was working there. I was called in for an interview. I was not allowed to park in guest parking and had to park on the street. Once we found a room that we could use, the interview was fairly short and average. The company was made to sound fun and innovative. I later found out that that is not actually the case. I was made an offer about 2-3 weeks later. The offer was lower than what I asked for and the title was lower than my previous. It took over a month for HR to formally contact me. Apparently my paperwork got lost and someone went on vacation. Ha, I guess I should have paid attention to the red flags.
There was no negotiation. They would't budge on the lowball pay.
