Good company with growth until acquisition by Mattel
Director of National Accounts & Canada (Former Employee) – Montréal, QC – 12 January 2018
I enjoyed my work and success at Mega Brands. We grew sales to record levels for 2 consecutive years and opened up numerous new accounts. Construction toy line and art & stationery lines were growing and strong until the Mattel acquisition
Line Worker, Line Setup(Bagging Dept.) (Current Employee) – Montréal, QC – 10 September 2016
It's non stop work and very tiring but fun. Sometimes you get really really tires but they send help anyway so everything's fine. I rather work hard and be productive than goofing off cause it makes me sleepy that's why i like my job here.
they care more about there numbers than the health and safety of there own employees expecting them to do more with less time. Unfair managers long hours has a contract system that makes absolutely no sense and short changes their workers. managers don't always pay full amount on pay checks. They cut corners to save the company money. Worst company i've ever worked for.
This company is only a place for starting and getting some Canadian experience. But the salary and the work atmosphere is not acceptable. Any Newcomer can find a job here, but after a while he will leave the company.
Charge backs (claims) Research Analyst - Team Leader
Senior Chargeback Research Analyst / Team Leader (Current Employee) – Saint-Laurent, QC – 25 February 2016
Validate and document all incoming deductions good or bad for all customers, as well as maintaining each customer profile per assigned portfolio. Helping my colleagues with any questions they have and guide them on the right path. Being the mentor for new employees who come to experience any facets of the Chargeback (claims) department.
A typical job for newly immigrants looking for an income. The management and my co-workers are accommodating and had good employer-employee relationship. The hardest part of the job is be awake and alert for 12 hours. The most enjoyable part of the job is the feeling of self-accomplished when the work orders are done and no negative reports.
A very fun and interesting job because i gotta work with toys, machines and mecanicians. The hardest part of the job is the heat because the machines are molding the piece and the humidity is covering the place
Mega Brands asked us to design a machine that will stack boxes. In their production line, they have people stacking boxes. We designed, manufactured and build a machine that stack boxes. We also did programming and used sensors to make the machines stack boxes accordingly.
