    I worked at LaFrance full-time

    Pros

    I spend 11 years at LaFrance and it was the best education in business that I could have asked for. The company promotes itself as "fair" - which seems simple enough, but I learned in my time there it is actually a huge challenge which they work towards every day. The almost entirely promote from within, which means even though it isn't a huge company - almost everyone gets the opportunity to grow and expand their experience.

    Cons

    LaFrance gets a bad rap on this site. Short term - promotions may seem slow and management decisions may seem overly bureaucratic. But I guarantee if you put your time in, you will leave with much more than you came with.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Increasing the flexibility of the work environment would do wonders for morale.

    I applied online – interviewed at LaFrance.

    Interview Details

    About a two hour process, and met with multiple people. Everyone was very nice, and made you feel comfortable. They walked you around, and you got to see the different projects they work on, and the industries they are involved in. They did a great job providing you detailed information on the job position, and explaining the different materials that they work with.
