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

Nice place to work
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.

Sales Associate, Certified Lighting Consultant (Former Employee) –  Ventura, CAMay 25, 2018
High turn over of all employees. Especially management which is bad for business. A lot of inner employee drama and bad mouthing of each other. Bullying and condescending upper management.

SALES ASSOCIATE (Former Employee) –  Denver, COMay 19, 2018
I loved that Lamps Plus has such a high traffic environment that sales simply fall in your lap. If you approach your job with a positive attitude than there is no reason why you cannot be sucessful.
Pros
High traffic environment
Cons
not much room for growth within the company other than sales

Good entry level warehouse
Reach Lift Operator (Current Employee) –  Redlands, CAApril 2, 2018
It's a good place to work. Management is accessible and willing to listen. The pay and benefits are average for warehouse positions. Advancement can be difficult due to the relatively small size of the company.

Terrible place to work
Sales Associate (Former Employee) –  Plano, TXJanuary 21, 2018
Stressful, terrible management. Working 50 hours per week with no overtime paid.
Run away from this company! Stressful drama environment every minute. If you work on commission, expect a lot of returns due to ZERO QUALITY CONTROL!
Pros
None
Cons
Poor commission, tons of unpaid hours and overtime.

Better than average
Manager (Current Employee) –  Chatsworth, CAJanuary 18, 2018
Lamps Plus has transformed itself over 35 years from a brick and mortar lighting retailer into an online industry juggernaut. The corporate culture emphasizes work life balance, and pay is fair to excellent depending on your performance. It is led by a highly competent owner who built the family business from the ground up.

There are some areas for improvement- expensive health benefits, slow pace of change, a general aversion to technology from many of the older employees, and a tendency to invest in areas with low returns. Parking is a pain but they are building new lots.

This is a company where you can build a career up through retirement.

Horrible
Sales Associate (Former Employee) –  Lynnwood, WAJanuary 8, 2018
They suck at training, they get mad at you when you ask questions, the manager just sits on his butt all day. The customers are always mad all the time. It was the worst job I ever had. The co workers were pretty helpful but the manager sucks and is so lazy.
Pros
Pay is okay
Cons
Everything
