I have been working at Lakeshore Learning Materials full-time (More than 10 years)
I know, 5 stars might seems a stretch but keep reading. I've been here a long time so I've seen a lot. First, employees (right up there with customers) are king. The owners listen to their employees and make changes for the better based on feedback. Second, I work with an incredibly diverse and dedicated group of people of all backgrounds and ages. To succeed here, you need to work hard - you get out of it what you put into it. Lastly, I get to see a side of the company that many don't get to see - their true care and compassion for employees when they are in need. Not to mention the great medical plan (including free onsite flu shots), 401(k) match, profit bonus and fun events throughout the year.
While they added 'Company Kitchen' there are not a lot of healthy eating options internally or nearby - would love some sort of fresh salad bar or cafeteria. No flex work schedules such as 9/80 and very little work from home opportunity.
Advice to Management
Continue to change, grow and challenge. It helps us stay viable both personally and as a company.
I applied online. The process took 1 day. I interviewed at Lakeshore Learning Materials (Carson, CA).
Applied online, phone interviewed with the recruiter, then came in and interviewed with a recruiter in Carson, took a test, met with the hiring manager, and then the VP of the dept. Received a job offer. Everyone was very friendly and made me feel at home. They asked thoughtful questions. The recruiter was very informative and transparent about the company, the position, and the expectations/company culture. I was there for about 3.5 hours.
