    I worked at Lumber Liquidators full-time (More than 8 years)

    Pros

    Excellent pay for managers. Interaction with customers.

    Cons

    Terrible work/life balance. Harassing calls or texts from regional managers on your days off to call the store and fire up your team.

    Advice to Management

    End the harassing regional calls on your days off. If they notice something on your day off that's a non emergency deal with it as a professional organization should. Set up a meeting to discuss how to correct issues. Go back to the old ways and sell wood.

    Pros

    five words for pros requested dont have any

    Cons

    work hours never end. expected to stay 15 hrs plus. so that salary becomes less than assistant. if you had one. after establishing store and inc sales upper mangement never tolerated lower sales. dont get sick or need surgery. physical work how many boxes do you lift off delivery truck than into customer at 80lbs each to make 300k a month. upper mgmt never satisfied. after they went public they systematically fired all managers in NEAST. they used a outside HR firm to show them how to screw u out of unemployment . they were allowed to sit w judge while we were on the phone defending self. the TAX on vested stock they handed out was paid by emplotee as income but then never given upon term employmant.

    Advice to Management

    get rid of board of directors that have no back round in home buildind. regional managers are used as bullies
