I help people out all the time with pool advice, even outside of work. I'm the poolmaster!

Sales Associate (Former Employee)
Plano, TX

I worked at Leslie's Poolmart full-time for more than a year

ProsThe 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.

ConsRude, 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 Ordering parts for outdated models is extremely expensive and slow...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 Senior ManagementVisit the stores more often.
