I have been working at Lumber Liquidators

Pros

Great compensation for Managers, and lots of autonomy.

Cons

No support from any level of manager beyond yourself, everything done through a general email and at any moment guidelines and SOPs change or are blurred.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Add support between stores and regional level, or add employees, there are too many responsibilities to achieve and be successful in sales. There are only some many things people can do in a day.

    I worked at Lumber Liquidators

    Pros

    Good situation as a start in retail. All staff do all jobs so everyone learns all aspects of the store.

    Cons

    Managers always work 60-70 hours weekly. Totally inadequate support / training for roll- out of new p.o.s system. There is no support for required work at trade shows. They consider running stores woefully understaffed as a business strategy, seem unaware that busy stores lose customers because they cannot help shoppers.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Value your people the way Tom Sullivan used to, they are an asset and you disrespect them when you understaffed and under train them.

    Relaxed environment, sometimes too relaxed

    Pros

    I really like how relaxed Lumber Liquidators is. There's a lot of autonomy and freedom, dress is always casual and there the company is growing so there is a lot of opportunity to move upwards.

    Cons

    Sometimes employees abuse the relaxed atmosphere and focus more on social pursuits than doing their work. Sometimes there's a task right in front of everyone's face that needs to be done and would help everyone in the company but no one puts in the extra effort to do it, because it might go unrecognized or is just not worth the effort.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Work to keep the good things about the environment, but seek to limit autonomy when it is necessary for productivity.
