    Pros

    paid from the minute I punch in to punch out.
    "Can work up to 96 hrs biweekly."
    "CONSTANTLY monitored by camera from the next province."
    "You don't HAVE to make a wrong decision, Head office is only a phone call away"

    Cons

    In a nut shell, Over worked and under paid, also, treated like a mushroom.

    Advice to Management

    I AM management! YOU run YOUR department and keep your nose out of MINE!
    Pay a minimum wage, PLUS commission and you'll get sales people that care about the customer.

    Pros

    Both of my departments were really like a family. All of the managers were good people too. I really miss working with this amazing team of associates.

    Cons

    The associates with the highest earning potential in the retail stores are sales associates and delivery drivers, as they work on commission and incentives(The more you sell/deliver, the more you get paid). These two sets of associates are highly 'babied' and the majority of them have no regard for other employees or at times even customers, which makes for a highly negative and stressful work environment if you are working with them in any proximity, which is often. Leon's is also notorious for paying their employees next to nothing and expecting everything in return. They also do their best at having employees sign contracts to work full time so they do not have to offer them any benefits. If you do not wish to sign a full time work contract, then you are left with a menial number of hours, and still no benefits.

    Advice to Management

    Appreciate your employees that work hard for you.

    Pros

    There is a good earning potential in sales.

    Cons

    The hours are terrible. Management generally power trips and talks to you like your stupid on a daily basis. Sales system encourages hostility between sales associates. No real appealing advancement (advance to sales manager for a lower pay). Call lists. Deceiving sales and pricing tactics.You will be told a lot of bs on a weekly basis.

    Advice to Management

    Upper management. Listen to the front line soldiers... the sales associates. But I guess to listen to us you would first have to ask us.... Also what happened to integrity pricing?

    Pros

    Potential to make a good income, I cleared 1450 almost every time (bi-weekly)
    Complimentary snacks and lunches once and a while when your store is doing well.
    Build close relations with head office buyers, supervisors etc.
    Only work 4 days a week

    Cons

    Extremely competitive. I was one of the youngest working there, and felt the heat from my colleagues.
    Management was nice but never took your complaints seriously.
    Extremely stressful environment by your coworkers trying to take your sale, management not supporting you even when you are one of their top producers, and you are always stressed of trying to sell as it is 100% commission (there is no minimum wage)
    Lost of stress about selling warrantees
    Turn over is very high here!
    You work every weekend

    Considering I did very well pay wise, you realize fast that your sanity is worth much more.

    Advice to Management

    Consider being more involved in the posts to reduce conflict among sales associates.

    Pros

    Great place to work at. Sales Associate training second to none! Sales meetings are a real upbeat event. Lots to energy. %100 Medical Coverage Dental %100 after one year! You get paid while in training, Most of all the People are great to work with. :)

    Cons

    You have to spend some cash to get a Sales Associate uniform. Training is a bit overwhelming 30 exams. Some on Paper the rest online. Getting %100 is mandatory before letting you onto the sales floor. All Exams must be completed in 10 Days!

    Advice to Management

    I think Management at my Store are on the Ball! Don't have much to complain about! In fact I would say that the Managers are great bunch!
