    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.

    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 worked at Leon's Furniture full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    Gained some experience, some managers were good, most staff members were very nice

    Cons

    Inadequate pay, most managers were unfair, didn't have your back, expect too much of you, but wont pay you overtime, the company doesnt give good benefits or good pay. All departments are disorganized due to lack of keeping competent staff . As a full-timer, I rarely had two days off together. Schedule was all over the place.

    Advice to Management

    If employees are working overtime, pay them overtime. Treat your staff better, so you don't have people leaving every couple of months. I did not enjoy my time at Leons at all.

    I worked at Leon's Furniture full-time

    Pros

    Some work relationships I made.

    Cons

    The pay is atrocious (unless you are in sales, then you are put on a pedestal)
    Upper management treats the employees like garbage unfortunately. There is no respect from the store manager or the area supervisor for the staff. It is like walking on egg shells, hoping you wont make another mistake and you wont get written up again. Sales staff is treated like gold (mostly) while the office is left cleaning up everyones mistakes and is blamed for things even if they didnt do it. It was hard to go to work everyday, very negative environment.
    There is no moving up in this company, but if you do move up a little then you wont really get paid much more. Sales staff makes more than all of the managers. That might put the pay scale in perspective for you if you were considering working here.

    Advice to Management

    Treat your employees like human beings, not robots. Everyone makes mistakes

    Working in solitude mostly
    Getting off work on time, get paid for half of your break, coworker are nice

    Cons

    Some bad managers, very low pay for driving a lift truck, half of warehouse workers get paid off each year to save costs, general feeling of dread atmosphere

    Stop being so greedy for money and care about your employees

    Pros

    Be your own boss on the road while getting a great workout. When you finish your truck your done for the day.

    Cons

    Management. Every employee is expendable. If you don't have a good partner those are some long days.
