    Pros

    Pay is good , Benefits are great.

    Cons

    Salary employees are over worked. It’s almost like they think they own you. Company comes off a little desperate and nervous like they are on the brink of losing it all The CEO doesn’t seem to take credit for many failed endeavors he has brought the company into and to make matters worse he has surrounded himself with people who are just like him.

    I worked at Lumber Liquidators full-time

    Pros

    Great group of people that I worked with on a store level and some in corporate.

    Cons

    Where do I start?
     Regional manager hired me as an assistant manager with the promise my own store (probably) within a year. My manager left, I was next in line for the position and the job was given to some other guy who had barely been with the company.
    -They have awful environmental records. LL was raided by the FBI and charged $13 Million for the illegal importation of wood from a Siberian tiger preserve.
    Their CEO at the time jumped ship not long after.

    Advice to Management

    Quit. Save your soul.
