    Pros

    Good opportunity for young sales people to get their foot in the door in the industry. Good position for someone wanting to manage but also keep selling.

    Cons

    As long as you don't have a bad year you're ok. Weather, storms, projects etc are only excuses if you are not hitting your numbers. They do not consider circumstances of each location and tend to manage as though the whole country is the same.

    Pay is not very good unless you are in one of the larger branches. Plan on long hours with mediocre pay.

    Pros

    Runs like a small family business with lots of teamwork & everyone has fun. Very laid back because we beat our numbers.

    Cons

    Nothing I can think of. Maybe free donuts every morning.

    Keep up the good work & continue hiring from within.

    Pros

    The work is smooth once you learn the material, and they really empower the employees.

    Cons

    Minimal oversight of branch managers makes for big egos. This leaves lower ranked employees with no advancement opportunities.

    Advice to Management

    Make sure your branch managers on FL don't simply recite the mission statement as another thing on their to-do list, but rather they live by it. Very little "Respecting our associates, customers and vendors" going on in Orlando. They mainly rule through fear in ORDO.

    I worked at Lansing Building Products full-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    During the busy part of the year lots of work and overtime.

    Cons

    Cons were during the slow part of the year spent lot's of time sitting around or working in the warehouse.

    Management, local management, made working stressful because they tried to tell you how to do your job yet they had not done it before or not licensed to do it.

    Advice to Management

    Take feedback from employees and put it to use instead of letting go in one ear and out the other.

    Pros

    Monday through Friday work. First shift work and decent benefits.

    Cons

    It was a lot of back breaking work but they never showed any apreciation. They never gave me the promised raise.

    Advice to Management

    They need two delivery guys for most of deliveries, especially big windows and doors
