Associate Industrial Designer (Former Employee) – Providence, RI – April 1, 2016
I worked on a short-term contract with Hasbro. Each member was passionate about their work which only inspired others to do the same. The staff were fun and light-hearted but focused. This lead to a very enjoyable time working for a great company.

Merchandising Representative - Temporary/Holiday (Former Employee) – London, KY – January 2, 2016
I love working with Hasbro. I have been employed with them for 5 years now. It just is too bad I cant work all year round. I usually start around September and finish in December. The pay is wonderful! I have learned over the years where every toy in walmart is. The hardest part would be finding my product and making sure it was represented in the correct area.I enjoy setting up the displays and making my product look good to consumers. I do get to work with my mother, who is full time year round, which is great and lucky. We have so much fun working together. We both have strong work ethics, so its great when we can see how well we have done at the end of our day. I love doing merchandising and Im very good at it. I understand all that goes into the marketing of our products.
Working around people, good exercise, and fun to do
sometimes hard when stores are busy, people thinking I work for walmart and asking where other products in the store are
Senior Director (Current Employee) – Pawtucket, RI – March 8, 2016
Hasbro is a great company with a fun culture and fantastic people. In fact, its the people are what make Hasbro so special.
A typical day on the job consists of meetings with cross functional teams to ensure sales are on track with glide paths, development schedules are on time and all the global regions are aligned with strategies.
The leadership at Hasbro is extremely smart, experienced and passionate about the business and its people. Hasbro has a great education program where you can get training to hone your skills. I learned a lot and added techniques to my own knowledge base about how to more effectively manage dynamic teams.
The hardest part of the job is managing all the relationships, politics etc. globally. Hasbro is a large matrixed organization that requires a lot of alignment and influence to get things done. If you are not a polished relationship manager you may find it difficult to get things done at a high level.
The most enjoyable part of the job is the children and putting smiles on their faces.
Half day Fridays and great people
Work life balance is stressed and at times unrealistic
Merchandiser (Former Employee) – Waukesha, WI – September 20, 2015
choosing which days to work in the week is up to the merchandiser typical day- driving to store, meeting with store manager and department manager, straightening shelves with Hasbro product and restocking from warehouse is there is product, cleaning up after by taking cardboard to compactor and meeting again with department manager and suggesting what needs to be ordered. The district manager is a very generous and compassionate person, when she works with you she normally took you to lunch. Co workers, usually worked alone or at the holiday season hired a helper that was wonderful. Hardest part - getting cooperation from store management teams Enjoyable part - knowing you did a great job for your stores
choosing the days you wish to work, working alone, 401 K
Graphic Designer (Current Employee) – Burbank, CA – December 9, 2015
I work really hard as a designer here. Long hours and a lot of organized process but it is worth it when I love what I do, with a sense of pride and well deserved praise and recognition from my management.
They really recognize the problems and remedy to fix the problems. Everyone has a job and they work as a team.
Life work balance is enforced and half day fridays. We work hard by we play hard too.
Free snacks that are not just lame snacks, but nice quality ones that anyone can appreciate. If you're gluten free vegetarian or a meat eater, its well stocked. And the drinks in the vending machines are cheap!
Plenty of parking, friendly coworkers and really organized here. I love the process here. People really take pride in their work.
I do wish they allowed dogs though. They lower my blood pressure!
Upper management is easy to approach and talk to. Open door police. Love that!
Bagel Fridays, company wide Movie days, friends and family discounts, half day fridays, team work and fun coworkers
Some contractors give up months before their contract is up, No longer dog friendly.
TRANSFORMERS Team Toy Design Co-op (Former Employee) – Pawtucket, RI – September 17, 2015
Fun place to work but seemed like people were in and out all the time and the focus shifted to marketing from design. Lots of great ideas but don't expect them to go anywhere if the narrow mind cant see it.
