    I worked at Leslie's Swimming Pool Supplies full-time (more than an year)

    Pros

    You get off work relatively early as compared to a restaurant or other store. Since you work by yourself, you can literally be out the door at :01. There are selling incentives in the summer, ie .50 to $1 bonus for each bottle of a certain chemical sold.

    Cons

    Working by yourself for 8-9 hours straight. They advertise you as an expert then customers get upset when you don't know everything they think you should know. I was selling tens of thousands of dollars in pool equipment, and I have ZERO experience in maintaining a pool. There are no breaks because you are in the store BY YOURSELF. I had to leave the door to the bathroom open so I could hear a customer come in.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Hire more people. Train more. Don't shuffle people to other locations without making sure they are ok with it. Don't advertise an in store pool expert when you let someone open and close the store by them self on their second day. Don't let experienced managers not work weekends, when that is your busiest time.

    I have been working at Leslie's Swimming Pool Supplies full-time

    Pros

    Learn the ins and outs of the pool industry. Lectures from vendors and manufactures on options and use.
    Lots of overtime during the summer and enough time to enjoy winter holidays off if desired.

    Cons

    Constant struggle to make labor budget..... not enough customers or sales for the day... someone is going home early.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Prevent SM turn-over by offering more competitive salaries
