Recruitment... get your act together.
Applicant (Former Employee), Not YetDecember 10, 2014
Pros: toys.
Cons: immature business structure
I Have spoken with a number of more than qualified applicants to to this company and they all say the same thing... "They never get back to you." If your company is up to date and somewhere close to being professional, it is currently common place to get back to all applicants in a timely fashion. Even a month removed removed would still be considered professional. At Melissa and Doug though, they don't mind posting a job and then only responding to one or two potential candidates. Bad form.

A horror show...
Illustrator (Former Employee), Norwalk ctMarch 30, 2014
Pros: they have a bathroom and let you have a break every third day.
Cons: all cons... run!
This company is a gulag, a nightmare of penny pinching with little respect offered to the many talented, under payed artists. Oddly enough management does well by exploiting creatives and most of the toy line offered here is a bit dated, still advertising helps with that aspect. Fairly aggressive branding etc. but are wood block toys really still the rage? Other items are offered too but this place is a modern day version of NYC's Triangle Factory.

Fun, chaotic environment with extremely long days
Customer Relations/Sales Support (Current Employee), Wilton, CTSeptember 9, 2013
I have learned how to complete several different tasks, along with managing relationships with consumers and customers. The hardest part of the job is the long hours and the knowledge that there is no room for growth within the company. The most enjoyable part of the job is the people you work with day after day.
