Company has potential if werent for poor leadership
Account Manager (Current Employee) –  Chatsworth, CAJanuary 3, 2019
High stress due to poor leadership and extreme micromanagement. Managers have poor people skills and create a very negative work environment by continuously interrogating and belittling you. Constantly monitoring all of your emails and phone calls just to be questioned and graded and potentially robbed of bonuses. Personally experienced and witnessed other team members being yelled at and treated like children. I have witnessed several employees brought to tears over the course of my employment. Several complaints made against management with HR with no action, allowing them to continue this behavior. Newly introduced policies have cause every team member to make less money than the years prior, some substantially less. Politics is a sideshow in this company. Many team members have been forced to leave the company or change departments in order to escape the abuse.
Pros
Good industry
Cons
Poor managment and poor pay when comparing income to margins made

Horrible place to work highly unreliable managers
Sales associate (Former Employee) –  Fair Oaks, CA 95628January 1, 2019
The company is a mess, they don't train you right at all, they went through 3 managers upon working they are not reliable and completely disorganized. They don't care about their employees at all or their schedules and they go back on their word of school schedules. I quit the job and was not happy there at the fair oaks ca location I would not recommend anyone to work for them. They need to get their stuff in order.
Cons
Disorganized, unprofessional and rude

Horrible experience in the corporate setting
Customer Service Representative (Former Employee) –  Chatsworth, CANovember 25, 2018
Worst place to work ever. Every day consisted of bullying, favoritism, ridiculously unrealistic expectations, forced to work OT on the spot.
I learned this is the place to work if you enjoy being belittled and humiliated. Employees very kind, management absurd. The hardest part of the job was beginning my shift with dry eyes. The work in itself was minimally enjoyable. No time off from 11/1 - 01/01 no exceptions. My work experience with Lamps Plus was a living h*ll / nightmare, the stress was ungodly.
Pros
Good benefits
Cons
Too long to list

Very exciting place to work.
Customer Service Rep/ Administrative Assistant Rep (Former Employee) –  Ventura, CASeptember 27, 2018
I really enjoyed working at Lamps plus. I was just unfortunate that at the time I had to care fro things at home. Coworkers and management were amazing, professional, competitive, willing to teach, and every day was a bit different than the previous day. Training was another thing that was great because they made sure we were constantly learning how to stay in touch with the customers as well as with the stores policy.

Poor overall managenent, top to bottom
Sales Associate (Current Employee) –  Laguna Hills, CaSeptember 17, 2018
Store management seems to get little support from upper management. If store level management is too uncomfortable to pass employee suggestions on to upper management, how will anything improve for those of us who truly make the company successful? Store level management needs to provide more input to upper management and THEY NEED TO LISTEN!!!
Pros
Hours
Cons
Cheap

Data Entry (Current Employee) –  Chatsworth, CAAugust 15, 2018
This Company is not what you but who you know to move up. There is a lot of Favoritism amongst managers. They do not value Employees that actually do the job well and promote people that are relatives or same race. Specially in Internet Processing the Managers overwhelm you with more work that what your assigned. Most Employees leave for medical because they get stressed.
Pros
make friends
Cons
low staff

Certified Decorative Lighting Specialist (Current Employee) –  Pleasant Hill, CAJuly 9, 2018
If you have business background, you love to work.
They train fantastic and give you certificate.
There benefits are very good.
Full commission after you stable in sales, and it depends between 3 to 12 months. For first 3 months hourly and after base and commission. Our manager is very fair about that.
Work in commission is stressful and competitive environment but becouse always busy, then always have chance to find good sales plus you get good training to grow up.
Pros
Training, Manager, Co- workers
Cons
Total income, open floor, stressful competition commision

Warehouse Supervisor (Former Employee) –  San Lorenzo, CAJuly 9, 2018
An organization is formed to achieve certain goals and objectives by bringing individuals together on a common platform and motivating them to deliver their level best. It is essential for the employees to enjoy at the workplace for them to develop a sense of loyalty towards it.

Work culture plays an important role in extracting the best out of employees and making them stick to the organization for a longer duration. The organization must offer a positive ambience to the employees for them to concentrate on their work rather than interfering in each other’s work.
