    I have been working at Leslie's Swimming Pool Supplies

    Pros

    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.

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

    Interview Details

    The interview was the easiest ever. They never asked me a question. They sat down and began selling me on the company and what a great place it is to work. I asked all the questions.

    Interview Questions
    Negotiation Details
    Just a lot of excuses about the low wages. But the job market was very tough so I accepted for the experience. They acted like the wage offered was above average due to my work experience.
