    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied online. I interviewed at Lakeshore Learning Materials (Carson, CA) in March 2017.

    Interview

    Started by a typing test, then an interview with a HR Representative, then with the Department manager. Everyone was really friendly and happy. They also offered snacks and water before hand. It was a somewhat long interview where I was there for a couple of hours, but it was all worth it at the end!

    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied through other source. The process took 1 day. I interviewed at Lakeshore Learning Materials in January 2017.

    Interview

    I was called in advance for a pre-screen interview where I was given information about the position, company, and compensation package. The straightforwardness of the benefits package persuaded me to go in for a formal interview. The next day, I was given an interview in the Carson office. The process took roughly three hours. I spoke to five different individuals who listened to me attentively and asked questions about previous job experiences, skill sets, and interpersonal relationships. Overall, the experience was a positive one.

    For future applicants, it is wise to look over these reviews. What most have in common is the fact Lakeshore Learning's interview process is always a positive one as they conduct it with such professionalism. Personally, it made me comfortable and to a certain extent feel like I would be hired but that was not the case. A great experience does not equate a higher probability of being hired.

    Good luck on you job hunt!

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 1 day. I interviewed at Lakeshore Learning Materials (Carson, CA).

    Interview

    I received a call from HR. I was asked a few questions over the phone, then asked to come in for a one on one. I met with her the following day. Just the standard interview questions. I thought it went well and that we connected. I asked questions about the company as well as a standard day as an Inside Sales Rep. I'm assuming that it's difficult and very competitive to get hired on here.

    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 1 day. I interviewed at Lakeshore Learning Materials (Carson, CA) in September 2016.

    Interview

    Five minute wait in the lobby, where the receptionist offered me water and/or coffee, and had me fill out a form with name, address, phone number, and availability. The interview was super casual, 1:1 with a very friendly corporate recruiter who explained the position, job requirements, told me about the history of the company. She sounded very proud of the establishment, and seemed very happy to be working there. After a couple questions, she had me take a couple of typing speed tests (words and ten-key). She explained the whole thing very well. It was super simple, and straightforward. After she reviewed my results in a couple of minutes, she offered me the position, and then went over salary, training and scheduling, which she had already explained during our earlier phone conversation to set up the interview date. All in all, it took around 20 - 25 minutes, and was a great experience. Fun even.

    Negotiation

    There was no negotiation, since I was happy with their terms. The only thing I asked was if this position could turn into Full-time, and she said that there's no guarantee, but if something opens up, the seasonal associates are the first ones asked, before looking outside.
