Lies and manipulation are at the forefront of this organization. You are treated like dirt, and when they no longer have any use for you, you will be spit on, and kicked to the curb like a piece of garbage. There is no heart here.
Pros
Great Co-Workers
Cons
Working till you're exhausted, Not enough sick days, No 401K match

Amazing toys for kids. Very nice image and presentation of what we stand for to the general public. However, it is a shame management has poor management skills with no prior managerial acumen before coming here. There is a new regime that I hope and pray will turn things around. Miracles can happen!
Pros
Great product! I am working from home during pandemic.
Cons
We are great at finding good people to work here but are horrible at keeping them.

No matter how much you work and give your all they will never hire you on you will always be a temporary worker. One thing i got out from working there is learning how to drive a forklift.

Easy job if youre not trying too much labor work. Pay rate isnt good but it's good enough for what you do there. They Do not overwork you. Breaks were weird. First break was after the first hour and lunch was 3 hours before starting.

I would clock in at 7 am & start collecting any extra boxes from the past shifts. Then I’d start my shift from there. From working at Melissa & Doug I can say I’ve came across a handful of nice & genuine individuals.

Warehouse conditions were ok! Free beverages, fast pace environment. The management was a little off but overall it was a easy job! Unpaid 30 min lunch. Close to freeway for commutes

Expecations are very high in every facet of the business. You will be hired for 1 role, and wind up working in multiple roles. FANTASTIC people work here, but the enviroment is chaotic, and why shouldnt it be? It's a toy company.
Pros
Base pay is set above average.
Cons
It is very difficult to advance, no matter the level of effort you put in.

This is a perfect place for creative and hard-working individuals who find comfort in routine and consistency. Co-workers are friendly and management is supportive and professional. Grateful for the time spent at Melissa and Doug.

The employees, especially the long term ones, are wonderful. It's a tight-knit group of wonderful people. Private equity firm took control in the last year or so and they have brought in high level managers who have made disastrous decisions that have forced several long term and highly capable people to leave. I am afraid the next couple of years will be very turbulent.
Pros
Great people, great products for children
Cons
new management has changed the culture in a profoundly negative way

Everything is nice and cool but wont work with college students and their class schedule. Receiving is not paid fairly feels like things are more expected from receiving then any other department and you over work yourself for little pay feel like you should get paid 15 or more in receiving due to unloading carrying heavy products and and shrink wrapping pellets manually....

Stressful day with very little appreciation for work done. Very long hours per day and a half hour lunch break is not enough time to go out and enjoy a lunch.
