Does Leslie's Swimming Pool Supplies offer sponsored degrees?

Pros

Positive work environment, understanding management, paid sick-leave, optional work-from-home position

Cons

Lack of benefits, no tuition reimbursement (even for education that would possibly help improve the company)

Advice to Management

The advice that I would offer to management would be to offer employees a benefits package after 3 months of employment, despite whether the position is seasonal or permanent (temporarily). Further suggestions include clearly offering and presenting employees training options for leadership and management roles for those with an inclusion of incentives, and clear options to transfer into different job positions or departments within the company, as well as gain weekly and monthly feedback from all employees about possible improvements that can be made within the company, ranging from database and technical systems, leadership and management, employee benefits, workplace suggestions, etc. It would also be beneficial for employees to have an option as to whether or not to work on each holiday, without having to be concerned about being demoted or laid-off.

Does Leslie's Swimming Pool Supplies offer unlimited holiday?

Pros

The shorter operating hours means you have more time to be at home with family and flexibility for PTO during the high holiday season is a plus.

Cons

Pay could be more balanced with the work and responsibilities expected of a store GM.

Advice to Management

It is the only chain retailer for pool supplies nationwide but compensation for employees is low. Better benefits and equal pay-to-work salaries would promote better longevity of team members.

Does Leslie's Swimming Pool Supplies offer employee discounts?

Pros

Casual uniforms, including shorts. Slow during holiday months, as compared to other retail. Decent benefits and employee discount. Vacation constantly accrues, no use it or lose it.

Cons

Absolutely no work life balance from April to October. Minimum on staffing hours, so a good store manager works a lot! Pay is not great, at any level. This makes it hard to maintain quality employees, with the expectations we put on them. There is a serious disconnect with upper management and home office, as with stores. It has really become a disaster when is comes to stores and upper management. They say they want to grow but don't give tools to succeed. They tie your hands, yet hold you responsible for results. Starting as a Lead, you can advance to ASM, then Store Manager...but growth stops there. There is no opportunity for advanced growth and you are never shown appreciation for hard work. Very disappointed in the turn this company is making.

Advice to Management

Need to have a real discussion with your store level personnel. Extreme disconnection. Moral in the region is down. Experienced store managers leaving and looking elsewhere. With this type of specialty retail, experience is a must. I see a big problem in the future.

Decent benefits and employee discount.
