Hear what current Lifeboaters are saying.
“The term 'family atmosphere' is so overused, but what would you consider people who volunteer their Saturdays to help clean up your local beach? Or work alongside you mentoring disadvantaged youth during summer vacations? Or offer to help repair your home after Hurricane Sandy? It is this collective passion to do the right thing, coupled with the conviction to follow through, that makes our company successful.”
“The past 11 years have been exceptionally memorable because of the relationships I have built with my co-workers—they are truly my second family. The work-from-home days are an additional perk that allows me to spend a little extra time with my wife and kids, which is priceless.”
“[Lifeboat] is not just a company—its an extended family that includes our employees, resellers, and vendors! While we are all here to get a job done, our company culture allows us to have fun and make the best of every day while doing so!”
“I’m proud to work here. Input is welcome and encouraged, and there are opportunitities to grow in the company. But most of all, the company culture is inclusive and positive, and you’re never just a number here.”
“I literally typed in “Best places to work in NJ” when searching for a new career, and Lifeboat Distribution appeared. Accepting a position within this company has been the best decision for me and my family.”
“Working at Lifeboat has been an amazing experience. I have met some of the best people while working here. Everyone works diligently together while having a blast at the same time. The fun atmosphere and environment makes Lifeboat unlike any other company!”
