Radio Flyer has been innovating products that inspire active play for over 100 years. Take a peek inside our Prototype Shop to see how our designers and engineers use the space to design products families will love.
As a child I experienced the magic of Radio Flyer while imagining that my little red wagon was a race car. Later, I learned that Nonno (my Grandpa) had built the very first wagon soon after immigrating to Chicago from Italy. That’s when I fell in love with Radio Flyer. Generations of kids have pulled, pedaled and pushed their Radio Flyers on countless adventures fueled by laughter and joy. That is what Radio Flyer is all about – pure, simple, fun. Like every “Flyer” who works here, I am deeply passionate about creating quality products that inspire kids to play outside & imagine that anything is possible. I know that Nonno would be proud!

If there’s one thing I can say about Radio Flyer’s proud heritage, it’s that we have always kept learning and changing. We would not be where we are today if it weren’t for our desire to keep discovering what’s next and our willingness to try new things, learn from our mistakes, and keep helping each other become better at everything we do.
Through Wagon U, we show our commitment to being a learning organization by providing learning opportunities for all Flyers. We leverage our strengths and focus on continuous improvement in order to drive innovation and help us achieve our vision.

Meet Sam, a Product Development Engineer at Radio Flyer
I have been working at Radio Flyer full-time (More than 3 years)
The office space was recently renovated, and it promotes a comfortable and inspiring atmosphere. The CEO is very available and transparent, and he is a genuine person that you want to do good work for. The company strives to innovate, so creating new products is always exciting.
Radio Flyer's strategy can be aggressive and demanding. Employees can get overwhelmed by the workload/pace and consequently burn out. The wellness zone is underwhelming. There is not much flexibility to work from home.
I applied online. The process took 2 weeks. I interviewed at Radio Flyer (Chicago, IL) in September 2017.
I interviewed on the phone with a person from Human Resources. Also, there was another employee on the phone. I would estimate the interview lasted about 15 to 20 minutes.
