overall a good company
CDL Delivery driver and warehouse worker (Former Employee), BirminghamApril 23, 2014
Pros: benefits
Cons: pay, incompetent management
good company as a whole, my branch had horrible management and the blame was always passed on to the low man on the pole. Hard work in the busy months, it will wear you out.

Company was unorganized compared to other companies I have worked for in the past. High turnover of employees and most employees were unhappy. I never felt appreciated for the work completed.

Fine for a college job but no room to grow
INSIDE SALES REPRESENTATIVE (Current Employee), Dulles, VAAugust 9, 2013
Pros: set hours
Cons: no growth or pay raise unmotivating
A typical day as an inside sales representative for Lansing Building Products is a lot of day to day customer service both face to face and over the phone. A lot of multi-tasking is involved creating and managing purchase orders and managing inventory. The management is not the greatest and very micro managing. A chance to learn a lot about business – more... to business operations, inventory control, accounts receivable and maximizing profit margin. There is just no room to grow and no pay increase. – less

Has potential to be a great place or not
Inside Sales (Former Employee), Lexington, KYJuly 25, 2013
Pros: no nights, weekends or holidays
Cons: having to do everyone else's job when they are not there
Typical day at work depends on what branch you are at, but most locations are understaffed which means everyone is wearing multiple hats to get the job done. That would be fine but the nature of the work coupled with the rate of pay is not balanced. Like anywhere co-workers can make or break a job. Hardest part of the job is working the warehouse by – more... yourself, having to "pull" whole house vinyl siding orders for customers that are waiting, plus run gutter to length pulling multiple gutter orders of various sizes for multiple customers, receiving inventory, putting inventory up, pulling deliveries for next day ALL at the same time with no help. Even the customers note "you guys need more help" Oh, and the window truck just showed up with 80 windows to unload, check off and put somewhere out of the way. Good luck trying to get a lunch in, which they dock you for whether or not you take one. The best part of the job is the M-F schedule and not working weekends and paid holidays which is great for a family. If the branches were properly staffed, LBP would be a GREAT place to work. Not properly staffed, it can be the WORST place to work. – less
