    Pros

    Learn the ins and outs of the pool industry. Lectures from vendors and manufactures on options and use.

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

    I worked at Leslie's Swimming Pool Supplies part-time for more than a year

    Pros

    The pay was good, the hours were constant, and there was a lot of down time. This job teaches you time management and brings out your creativity. There's also lots of opportunities for growth in the company.

    Cons

    The chlorine in the air, the constant whining from corporate about cleaning and small, worthless, time consuming details. Also the customers can get rather rude and having nobody to turn to really sucks.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    If you have a cool GM like I did, your time at Leslie's will be legit. Befriending them is a must.
