I have been working at Lumber Liquidators

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.

    I have been working at Lumber Liquidators full-time (more than an year)

    Pros

    Great pay ($ 11 - $14 max) till you reach the level of a sales director, Great place to work for high school students as most of them who work in the Canadian operation are of the same level...............wave length will match. As a store manager or Assistant store manager apart from selling one can acquire new skills like mopping the floor daily, cleaning the toilets daily, loading and unloading hardwood at the warehouse all time, great opportunity to build your biceps and triceps.

    Cons

    Thought process of people working at all levels are very basic. Growth prospects are minimal. New recruits, pls do not expect any formal training, be ready to drive the fork lift on day one even if you have not had any training on the same..........after a month or two management will organise a third party company who will provide a certification that you are qualified to drive the fork lift to keep it on record. Stacking of hard wood floor pallets at the warehouse could be life threatening as one would be forced to keep as high as 5 full pallets one on top of the other despite the risk of falling on one's own head while at work.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Please do not recruit professionals from good companies, as the job title you offer is so mis-leading (store manager, Assistant store manager etc.,) but the job function is just a sales associate or helper job in reality. Do not promise promotions within 3 months at the time of interview as not every candidate will be a YES MASTER to the management team. Do not adapt the divide and rule policy within the team. Finally BE FARE to everyone, not to select few.

    I worked at Lumber Liquidators full-time (less than an year)

    Pros

    Nothing really motivating as most of the staff feel extremely insecure due to the management erratic decisions.

    Cons

    brain drain is so high, employees are recruited , no formal training is given even to operate a forklift. No safety standards are adhered in the Warehouse, extremely dangerous place to work.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    When you recruit motivated professionals, kindly respect what they bring in to the table, train people before dumping them on the floor/warehouse, if you cannot motivate them, pls do not discourage them. Pls do not adopt RACIST behaviour to your employees especially in the Canadian division.
