    I applied online. The process took 4 weeks - interviewed at Leslie's Swimming Pool Supplies.

    Interview Details

    Apply online selecting the store you want to work at, recruiter called 2 weeks later, 35 minute phone interview with a recruiter, if selected to advance, interview in person with the District Manager. If the District Mgr. thinks you are qualified, you will not be offered a job on the spot. Instead you will be told your information will be reviewed. Heard nothing for over 3 weeks then got a call from the Store Manager of a location that was close to me who wanted to schedule an in person interview. Had a 5 minute in person interview, was told schedule can change weekly, the hourly pay rate, and a start date was agreed upon.

    Anonymous Interview Candidate
    Application Details

    I applied online - interviewed at Leslie's Swimming Pool Supplies.

    Interview Details

    The process consists of an online application followed by a phone interview. The phone interview consists of fairly standard questions such as your strengths and weaknesses as a worker, why you are interested in the position, and what qualities you think make a good supervisor. The phone interview will take between ten and twenty minutes. After the phone interview there is a final interview with a district manager that I did not participate in as I had finalized another job before that point.

    Interview Questions
    • There were no "gotcha" type of questions asked, they appeared to be more interested in gauging your work background and seriousness about the position through fairly standard questions.   Answer Question
    Reasons for Declining

    I declined the final interview as I accepted a job offer that I received almost immediately after my first interview.

    Application Details

    I applied in-person. The process took 5 days - interviewed at Leslie's Swimming Pool Supplies in April 2010.

    Interview Details

    I called Leslie's to ask if they were hiring. The manager at the time said that they were. I went into the store that day. I filled out the application in the store and handed it in. About 4 days later, I got a call back from the manager for an "interview." I went in, and she just asked me about what I knew about pools, if I can lift boxes and buckets, and when I could start. After getting my working papers (I was 16), I started a few days later.

    Negotiation Details
    I was told what I was going to get paid (about a dime above minimum wage), and that's what I got. NO negotiation possible
