I have been working at Lakeshore Learning Materials full-time (More than 5 years)
Incredibly successful business and a chance to work with some of the most down-to-earth, hardworking, engaged and intelligent group of coworkers I've yet encountered. Solid family-owned business with great leadership. Bo, the CEO, is genuine, generous and truly cares about the employees and the customers. Customers love our products and there is a true dedication across the org to getting it right. Endless opportunities for smart and hardworking employees-- not a ton of mediocrity here, so if you're a high achiever, you will do well. Fast paced environment, and a good size company but not where you just feel like a number. Competitive comp/benefits offering and there are a ton of fun activities that go on throughout the year.
Not much, companies like this are few and far between these days. Proud to say that I plan on retiring here!
Advice to Management
Keep doing what we do best-- invest in our people and provide career pathing and rewards!
I applied online. The process took 3 days. I interviewed at Lakeshore Learning Materials.
Met with HR for first round. They passed the information along to the hiring manager. I felt it was more generic questions for the first round, which isn't surprising since it was from HR. I received a very template email stating that other candidates were more qualified. When I replied and asked for feedback, I did not receive a response. Seems like a great company to work for that takes care of their employees if you can get in.
