Great company. Been here for many years and I can certainly see the difference between a private company and a public company. There is a deep culture of family and pride. I have never worked so hard and never felt so rewarded. It's nice to be at a place where you are not a number but you are heard and your opinion matters. The owners are very active in the day to day and care about their employees. It's also not to shabby to work in a business that makes a difference in the lives of young children.
No complaints. It's a different culture and almost seems unreal but if you give it a minute you will see it's real.
Advice to Management
Stay true to your culture and don't ever allow it to change.

I applied online. The process took 3 days. I interviewed at Lakeshore Learning Materials.
Met with HR for first round. They passed the information along to the hiring manager. I felt it was more generic questions for the first round, which isn't surprising since it was from HR. I received a very template email stating that other candidates were more qualified. When I replied and asked for feedback, I did not receive a response. Seems like a great company to work for that takes care of their employees if you can get in.
