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

Pros

The friendly regular customers. Good team environment, if you work at a larger location. Building relationships with customers. You'll get a good workout from hauling around buckets of chemicals.

Cons

Rude, entitled customers with no patience. Prepare for some lonely days in the winter (no customers and no coworkers). Chemical odors might be pretty hazardous to your health long term. Ordering parts for outdated models is extremely expensive and slow... customers are understandably unhappy about this.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Visit the stores more often.

    Summers are busy with non-stop customers, while fall and winters and slow and uneventful.

    Pros

    You'll be working by yourself for hours during the winter, but expected to do little things that don't make a difference in the long run. During the summer, don't expect your legally mandated 15 minute breaks, as a low number of employees keeps you busy with a high number of customers

    Cons

    You'll be working by yourself during the winter with very little customer interaction, it is quite maddening. You'll work ten hours a day, sometimes with only 5 customers for the entire day. Raises are few and far between, even with a promotion you get a minimal raise of 10%.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    You keep talking about how much money your company is making, 600,000,000/year, you can share the wealth a little bit more and you may be able to hold onto more employees instead of having a high turnover rate.
