    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.

    Pros

    Good commission. When stock is available and delivery spots are open things are good. This happens more often than not.

    Cons

    Lack of training and coaching. The management shows you your numbers every quarter and says you're doing good or get better. No recommendations.

    Advice to Management

    Proper coaching. Don't just say do it and just coach by numbers.
