    Good culture, despite unclear direction and lack of decision making at the higher levels.

    I worked at Lagasse full-time for more than a year


    Great building, kind coworkers. Ability to work with multiple departments and learn a lot. Very community oriented and the associates put in admirable efforts with charities all over the country.


    Leadership doesn't really put their foot down to make many decisions and the company seems to be run by a bunch of individuals pulling things in various directions and no one seems to have a sense of what the company is or where it's going.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Put all resources into an attempted project, rather than split everyone up, and have them all try to accomplish the same thing in different ways without any group actually having the right resources. Invest more heavily in IT. The company makes almost all decisions manually, and inconsistently. And must type in what's happening operationally into a very antiquated ERP that doesn't suit the needs of the business at all.

    Application Details

    The process took a day - interviewed at Lagasse in June 2010.

    Interview Details

    Applications are sent online through the parent company. My application was then routed to the local office manager. A call was received to schedule an interview. At the interview, not many questions were asked of me. The manager spent a great deal of time telling me what the job entailed, company benefits and company history. Pay was discussed which was a set hourly rate. I was then advised they would be making a decision after the holiday.
