I worked at Lakeshore Learning Materials as a contractor (less than an year)Pros
I worked in the product art dept. on a contract basis. Project was organized, everything had a schedule and a list of to do's was easy to follow. Even though it was contract work they paid time and a half for overtime, also gave dinners on those days. Paid weekly, and gave you a check on the last day of work before you left. Coworkers are friendly, hard working, and help each other out. Fun and friendly work environment.Cons
My commute was long, but the compensation and coworkers made it worth it. Would have liked a longer contract.RecommendsPositive Outlook

- Application Details
I applied online. The process took a day – interviewed at Lakeshore Learning Materials in October 2014.Interview Details
When I got there I sat and interviews for about 20 minutes with someone from HR. She is very clear that with the position you can be bounced around to different departments. Which I did not have a problem with, however she stressed it so much that I became skeptical. I was then asked to take an excel test. I was given 30 minutes to complete the test. After I was done I waited about 15 minutes and was called back in to touch base. We reviewed my test which I did pretty well on. She then tells me that they are thinking about putting me in Asset Recovery! I was not at all happy about this and feel like they posted a position for an Administrative Assistant to lure a desperate person into accepting a job that is completely unrelated. I would love to be given a position with this awesome company, but I feel as though my time was wasted and the Administrative Assistant position was really never available. I was told if I make it through to the next phase I would be notified. I won't hold my breath for too long.Interview Questions
