Productive and fun place to work

Indeed Featured review

The most useful review selected by Indeed
I enjoyed working at Lafayette Venetian Blind. We were not allowed to talk to each other unless it was work-related. This made the days seem very long.

Family Oriented and Exceptional Staff

I was a Driver for Lafayette Venetian Blinds, delivering high-end material/fabric and blinds to business owners across the States. What an amazing place to work and make into a career.

Pros

Great Communication from supervisor, getting to see different sites, places and people

Cons

Hazards of operating a commercial vehicle over the road

Never again.

Carrot and Stick mentality utilized by management across the board. Supervisors have been known to intimidate employees and lie about it when confronted by HR when complaints are filed by employees. If you can read a tape measure posess basic math skills and show up for work on time for all scheduled work days ,you will keep your job. The work environment is not pleasant, and the employee turnover rate is high because of this environment.

Pros

Production processes are simple and easy to learn.

Cons

Supervisors have poor attitudes.

Not sure what you are asking for?

In all company is okay for a family own. But not equally fair to employees. They do not treat everyone equally the same. If you are related you are aloud more freedom in your job.

Very poor place to work, the income sucks, the management is awful

There is no room to grow unless you are one of the owners favorites or you are family to them! People that has been there 10-20 years were making less then I was starting out. If you are wanting to go back to school or have a sick kid they say they will work with you but they DO NOT. The management at Venetian blinds is what’s going to cause them to close down before long!!! I relized working for Venetian blinds I was at a dead end job. They are going under, and probably won’t be in business for another 5 years.

Pros

Off weekends

Cons

Breaks, pay, management, no time for yourself or home life

Easy job with little room to grow

The pay starts at $10/hr. You get very minimal increases; i.e people who have been there for over 20yrs still don't make much over $12/hr if over it at all.

Pros

easy work

Cons

no room to advance

Fast Paced Customer Service & Ordering

A typical day starts and ends with placing orders for blinds and other interior fashions. There is a paid 15 minute break and an hour unpaid lunch. The most enjoyable part of the job is the people you get to talk to on a daily basis, however it can also be the hardest part of the job.

"Family company" with non-family friendly policies and low pay

I enjoyed the job--they are great with the amount of time and effort they put into training their employees. Most of the customer service is done over the phone and the customers are generally nice to work with. My biggest issue with this company is the low pay and unsatisfactory benefits. It seems the higher-ups in the company are doing very well financially, while the rest of the company struggles to get decent pay and benefits. Also, the vacation/sick day/leave policies are not at all family friendly. You are required to work 6 months before earning any vacation time and one year before earning any sick time. During the first 6 months, if you miss more than 32 hours for any reason, you can be terminated on the spot. I really think this company has the potential to be better, but they struggle to keep good, quality employees because of poor pay, benefits, and policies.

Pros

Nice work environment

Cons

Poor pay, outdated technology, poor benefits/policies

Fast paced job

It was a tough job and was pretty physically demanding. The biggest complaint I had was how unpredictable the management was. Things would change with people very quickly and a lot of times people would lose their jobs unexpectedly.

call center like any other

Been employee for this company for over 6 years. Nothing really hard about the job when you know what you are learning after 3 months of training. Training is the hardest part. I can place orders and give needed help in almost all our product we make. The learning is vital.

Cons

no growth potential

The night shift

I answered phone calls all night. I worked 3:30 to midnight, so it got kinda dead after 9pm. It was nice and laid back. It was easy to learn and I regret quitting there, it wasn't my choice though.

a fast paced but not really hard factory job
