    Pros

    Good management, friendly co-workers, team environment. Canadian company. Company has understanding of importance of work and home life balance. Flexible with booking days off.

    Cons

    Long hours, heavy lifting, piece work (pay depends on how much you would deliver), working weekends. Better training would have been beneficial for staff.

    I worked at Leon's Furniture full-time (More than 5 years)

    Pros

    Missing the people I worked with, I made some really good friends there
    Learned a lot about managing and business

    Cons

    Hard to pay your bills, for a better warehouse manager job I almost DOUBLED my salary that Leon's was paying. I never understood why managers kept leaving the company but now I understand that the company doesn't do a whole lot to keep you around.
    My new job is great because I actually get days off, working at Leons you are expected to be on call 24 hours a day if something goes wrong which it often did because I was the only one who knew what to do in the warehouse. All the warehouse guys and managers are brand new making the job hard. My favourite part about Leon's is everything is your fault when it goes wrong, and you are expected to work 24 hours until it is better, but it is Leon's causing people to quit because they only pay you minimum wage to start. YOU CAN'T HAVE YOUR CAKE AND EAT IT TO

    Advice to Management

    I loved Leon's and never wanted to leave, but you guys have to be one of the cheapest companies to work for.

    I have been working at Leon's Furniture full-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    I love working for Leon's. Amazing people, good benefits and profit sharing which is like a bonus every year. It's a great place to get your foot in the door and they help with your career, offer opportunities for people to become supervisors and managers who might not get the opportunity somewhere else. I'm very happy here and highly recommend it. So many locations and opportunities

    Cons

    It's retail so wages are pretty standard, but they make up for it with profit sharing and manager positions where you can get bonuses. Hours are retail but there are no really late nights so not boo bad and a fun team so you don't mind. It can be hard work and customers can be hard to handle but they give you a lot of tools and training to help you deal with it.
