I worked at Leslie's Swimming Pool Supplies full-time (More than a year)

Pros

The 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.

Cons

Rude, 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 Ordering parts for outdated models is extremely expensive and slow...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 Management

Visit the stores more often.

    I worked at Leslie's Swimming Pool Supplies full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    Easy to advance to higher positions in the store associate track. There are a lot of stores, so you can work in many locations.

    Cons

    -Managers are expected to work ridiculous hours with no overtime pay.
    -Once you reach store manager, moving up can be almost impossible.
    -Meeting your average per customer ($50 min.) is all that matters to higher ups.
    -No commissions for lower level employees, and all lower level employees are let go at the end of the season.
    -Low quality products sold at prices which are way too high.

    Advice to Management

    Please motivate your workforce by providing better incentives. Commissions should be higher and store managers should not have to work so many hours.
