Not a bad place,

Sales Manager (Former Employee)
Toronto, ON (Canada)

I worked at Leon's Furniture full-time for more than 3 years

ProsPotential for a long term career, company does promote from within(it takes time)

ConsHours, weekends, Pay is not great considering that sales staff makes more money

Advice to Senior ManagementHire people that can impact sales and pay them more than sales people, if you do not think that they are worth the money keep looking. It makes no sense to have a supervisor that isn't paid more than the top sales person on the floor. This way you have blind leading the blind(in most stores)

Yes, I would recommend this company to a friend – I'm optimistic about the outlook for this company

Management is under qualified and/or need better training.

Furniture Sales Associate (Former Employee)
Whitby, ON (Canada)

I worked at Leon's Furniture full-time for less than a year

ProsThe company advertises a lot and the store is busy.

ConsThey hire management within but many are under qualified and need better training and people skills.
If you have one bad month regardless of if you are one of the top producers, you will be replaced in a heartbeat.

Advice to Senior ManagementBe careful with the management hiring process, they set the stage for the store.

Extreme pressure to perform for minimum wage

Customer Service Representative (Former Employee)
Kingston, ON (Canada)

I worked at Leon's Furniture part-time for less than a year

ProsA few good people at the store

ConsManagement doesn't promote friendliness among workers. They don't like it when you talk to one another. Expect you to drop everything all the time and switch jobs with no to very little training, then expect you to perform 100%.

Advice to Senior ManagementLighten up. People have lives outside of work. People need to form bonds with co-workers since they spend so much time at work. You might want to think about increasing hourly wages for the amount of work you expect people to do, especially when they're expected to take on two different jobs within three weeks of being hired, with little or no training.

No, I would not recommend this company to a friend
