I have been working at Leslie's Swimming Pool SuppliesPros
It's interesting and the customers are usually good. There is no holiday rush here if your in a winter market. And they will promote you fast up to store manager.Cons
Required to work 55+ hours a week for several months straight. Only paid 1/2 time for OT!?(for some mgrs this is less than min wage!) Even if you've been there awhile and won their top awards, you will probably only make as much as an assistant manager at fast food spot. 2 weeks of vacation , but you have to use 1 when they close for Christmas, so really just one. 3 sick days, but you can't take them or even know how many you have? Managers don't get paid for most holidays even though they have to work them ( mgrs get 3, everyone else 6).Advice to ManagementAdvice
This company claims to be pool experts, but most of the stores are run by people that have been doing this for less than 2 years. Pay your managers a decent salary, and they will stick around.
