    I worked at Lagasse full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    Great building, kind coworkers. Ability to work with multiple departments and learn a lot. Very community oriented and the associates put in admirable efforts with charities all over the country.

    Cons

    Leadership doesn't really put their foot down to make many decisions and the company seems to be run by a bunch of individuals pulling things in various directions and no one seems to have a sense of what the company is or where it's going.

    Advice to Management

    Put all resources into an attempted project, rather than split everyone up, and have them all try to accomplish the same thing in different ways without any group actually having the right resources. Invest more heavily in IT. The company makes almost all decisions manually, and inconsistently. And must type in what's happening operationally into a very antiquated ERP that doesn't suit the needs of the business at all.

    Division of United Stationers. Soon to be merging systems in July 2015. Many of the people there were very nice.

    Insecure manager. Fearful of being downsized? Not get along with opposite gender? I was there to help!! but was talked to like a 2nd grader.

    Advice to Management

    I worked at Lagasse part-time (More than 8 years)

    Pros

    driving the forklifts instead of manual pallet jacks. Getting paid weekly. The hours are not to bad. Unless they want you to come in early like 2 am.

    Cons

    This company does not pay very well. I mean 11 bucks an hour is really not much when you think about it. And the management is very stern. You really don't get any chances here. And it seems we are always running behind. So there's lot's of overtime. And we never seem to have enough people.

    Advice to Management

    Please be more understanding with the associates. I mean everybody screws up once in a while.
