Stock Clerk/Operations Team Member (Current Employee) – McLean, VA – June 29, 2015
Typical shifts involve lots of customer service, moving of merchandise, within the store. I also ship and receive packages. I assist in the visual display and merchandising duties, I perform light maintenance duties. I participate in store resets and "new product" launches. Management for the most part is very responsive and available. There are very few "benefited-regular time" positions in the store; they are quite hard to come by.
No one is confined to one set of tasks. There is always variety.
As with all "retail jobs", co workers may/ may not show up for work on any given day

I love this company because it encourages growth and creates a positive environment to learn and grow. We can have fun while being professional. I would encourage all who have fun in sales and promoting new items to take part in building with Mattel Inc.

Mattel is a great place to learn new skills and advance in your career. You work hard but are paid well. The creative work and the resources you have to create products is amazing! Plus the skilled people at Mattel are great to work with and learn from. If you want to know the toy industry then work at Mattel!

Sales and Merchandising (Former Employee) – California – September 7, 2017
I enjoyed promoting Mattel's product line. The line included Hot Wheels, Masters of the Universe and Barbie. I put together promotions at the mall in Chicago with models who represented the Masters of the Universe characters. This all goes way back! I needed to secure shelf space in retail stores such as Toys R Us.

I learned new editing and graphics software that has allowed me to advance in my profession. Also, the work was challenging, but rewarding and the projects I worked on have enhanced my video production reel.
Excellent work environment with lots of growth opportunity

Financial Analyst (International) (Former Employee) – El Segundo, CA – June 20, 2017
Some nice perks, but it's a very controlling environment where everyone is watching what everyone else is doing. They have layoffs almost every quarter and that's hard to handle after a few years. Starts to make you twitchy.
