This is a fun place to work. Helping people place orders and if they were unhappy then we would replace it. Received boxes of stuff on holidays.

If you have warehouse experience look elsewhere.
Orderfiller (Former Employee), LaVista NEApril 8, 2014
Pros: fair point system
Cons: lazy management, never solves problems, outdated equipment
It might just be the area I worked in, but leadership proved to be incompetent of the workplace and unwilling to solve problems. Simple issues persist for years, literally years because it's never a high enough priority to address. While normally this would only be a annoyance, due to their bonus system they count on offsetting their lower rate of pay, these issues will effect your income.

I should also like to make note of how they recognized their employees who routinely go above and beyond the normal call to make ends meet, or more accurately the lack there of. I'd taken on many tasks that required much self sacrifice and even hurting my own performance, and couldn't get so much as a "thank you" for my efforts.

I'll end by saying if you haven't any work experience you can do worse then OTC, but don't put much faith in their promise of promoting from within or how good their bonus system is. If management was only good at one thing it would be talking, but talking without action is meaningless.

Fabulous company with great benefits!
Artist (Former Employee), Omaha, NEMarch 13, 2013
Pros: freedom to be creative and experiment artistically
Cons: worked 10 hours plus a day, 5-6 days a week.
My experience with Oriental Trading was life changing. This was my second job out of college, and I was the second full time artist on staff. I drew all day long, from layouts of product pages for upcoming publications, on top of being able to design toys and product to be replicated overseas.
The work was intensive and very pleasurable. I always woke excited to start my job, meeting deadlines and proofing art pages from the separator. It was challenging to discover new ways to keep costs down and easier ways to produce our catalogs.

I loved working at Oriental Trading. Everybody there was a delite to work with and the management team was amazing, always trying to help you to ensure that you keep your job. There were some customers that were hard to deal with, but it was worth it. They were always doing activites with us and keeping us engagded with things to do.
