Pros

You learn about pools and how to care for them. You learn customer service and how to work one-on-one with people.

Cons

The hours are not great as you work most weekends and some holidays. Sometimes customers can be hard to deal with. There is no real effort to review employee performance and advance in the organization.

Advice to Management

Provide benefits like health insurance, profit sharing, 401K to all employees, even the lowly associates. Put forth effort to make all employees feel relevent and want to work for Leslie's.

    Pros

    Good salary for someone with no college diploma. Takes about 3-5 years to learn the business, but some people are promoted within a year. Many contests and bonus opportunities. President's club is an excellent reward program for the top 3 stores in each district, I was able to go to Cabo and Maui all expenses paid two years in a row. Pay scale is based on the volume of business your store does. Tons of promotion opportunities, I took one and received a bonus etc, but you may have to be willing to relocate.

    Cons

    Many, many hours especially for a place like the northeast with a 5-6 month summer season, 60+. I left due to a change in my district manager, who turned out to be very new to the niche industry and was a very poor manager. My dm before him was excellent though. Heard through the grapevine they recently cut down salaries for each pay tier, but it is still a competitive salary for someone with no college

    Advice to Management

    Overall a great company to work for. Perhaps verify new managers are actually ready to take on the responsibility.
