    Pros

    Once you get familiar with the job, it becomes easy and rewarding to sell. Interactions with different customers will teach you alot about yourself and reading others. Decent pay depending on volume of store. Bonus every month based on store.

    Cons

    Long hours with small staff.

    Advice to Management

    More staff

    Pros

    Laid back with downtime if you get the work done. Sometimes you get a couple days off.

    Cons

    Shift interferes with dinner / 7:45 - 7:00 doesn't leave any time for a date after dinner. Just a movie / food and bed before the next day. Some locations are better. Some chemicals in the warehouse cause me to cough. And if exposed enough to cough for days. You start at 2.5% (not bad right?) of 2%!!!!! Sell 10 million dollars? 5,000 bonus?! Sure stay with the company until manager (couple years if you're good) and get 71% of 2% but then you're the only one motivated to sell? There's something wrong with the whole picture, and it has a lot to do with greed.

    Advice to Management

    Get to know your employees and talk to them if their manager is leaving. Open communication lines between regional managers / higher ups and stores.

    Pros

    Lumber Liquidators provides you with great opportunities for advancement, they pay well and provide excellent benefits. They also provide close engagement with management.

    Cons

    Poor company management, the company demands abusive amounts of overtime and is not understanding of personal needs.

    Advice to Management

    Management needs to spend time ensuring that they have the right people in the right places. They need to ensure that employees have ample time to spend with their families.
