Pros

1. 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.

Cons

1. 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 ManagementAdvice

Leslie'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.

    Pros

    You learn about pools and how to care for them. You learn customer service and how to work one-on-one with people.

    Cons

    The hours are not great as you work most weekends and some holidays. Sometimes customers can be hard to deal with. There is no real effort to review employee performance and advance in the organization.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Provide benefits like health insurance, profit sharing, 401K to all employees, even the lowly associates. Put forth effort to make all employees feel relevent and want to work for Leslie's.
