Great job for High Schoolers and/or future Managers seeking exp on their resume.

Lead Sales Associate (Current Employee)
Beaumont, TX

Pros1. Great hrs for a retail Business, hardly any work to do during the off season. 2. Promotions are very easy at Leslies as they promote within 90+% of the time. 3.Non-degree individuals can easily become Assistant or General Managers. 4. The POOL trade is very easy to learn. 5.Flexible Schedule. 6. Running a store as GM is very easy.

Cons1. Their payscale for LSA, Assistants, & General Manager is very dirt cheap. An Assistant makes around ten/hr +/- fifty cents. LSA makes less and GMs are salaried around 30k plus bonus. 2. A General Manager for Leslie's is the equivalent to a department Manager say to Wal-Mart or Toys R US. 3. No benefits for LSA & below.

Advice to Senior ManagementLeslie's makes a ton of money even to balance the off-season. So pay for ASM and GMs should be much higher. IF salary was higher, the company would attract more esteemed individuals for management positions versus promoting rags within because they cant work anywhere else.
Overall, its a good place to work to chaulk up experience on your resume for future jobs.

Yes, I would recommend this company to a friend
