Terrible pay for work
Driver (Former Employee), Burlington, ONApril 18, 2016
The work was short per day but the pay was terrible. It was a percentage of the value on your truck. And with the dropping prices, everything on sale, you didn't make that much.

Typical Sales job
Furniture Salesperson (Former Employee), MontrĂ©al, QCMarch 30, 2016
You will find the job is fairly enjoyable until you end up working with people who take the job way to far, and start getting unfair with the sales and commission.

Its a fish tank and there are a lot of sharks.

productive learning experience at Leon's Furniture Limited
delivery clerk (Former Employee), Toronto, ONMarch 4, 2016
Pros: learned a lot about the computer systems used
Cons: not enough staff
Working at Leon's Furniture Limited was a great experience. I learned a lot of great customer service in many departments such as: Customer care, Whare House, and Deliveries. The management is very encouraging for co workers to learn and grow with the company. The co-workers make your experience at Leon's enjoyable and easy to coop with everyone. My most enjoyable period working at Leon's was working in the Whare house because it is a hands on job and made the time spent effective.

play ground for the kids
Sale Associate (Current Employee), Calgary, ABJanuary 19, 2016
Pros: busy days, employees, and happy customers.
Cons: long hours, managing your paychecks.
Atypical day at work, is when i get to work and call my customers regarding they're stock.

I've learned to grow and grow each day.

Management is awesome, everyone is like a family at Leon's and that's what i love most about it.

Co-workers are great and you get to meet new people everyday.

The hardest part of the time is trying to figure out what your customers need/want, instead of thinking about how much they will spend or how they are mean to you just because you are a sale rep; but that is the best part about being a sales rep.

When i help a customer pick out everything for they're house. that makes my day, i feel like if i can help that person make they're home beautiful and within they're budget, then that is the most enjoyable part of my job.

Stressful and underpaid
sales associate (Former Employee), Whitby, ONDecember 1, 2015
Pros: Learn how to engage with customers
Cons: Underpaid, Long working day including every weekend, management.
It looks nice at first, but then you understand that you'll get blamed for any mistake that the management will do. You can sit for 12 hours with only 5 customers coming in, basically wasting 12 hours of your day and not getting paid for. There's constant rivalry between you and other sales associates, and the management encourages you to fight for every customer, making those endless hours to be even worse.

They pay horrible
Front Dock Supervisor (Former Employee), Burlington, ONSeptember 1, 2015
Pros: n/a
Cons: horrible pay for back breaking work
for the tasks you are assigned to do the pay is horrible. it's just above minimum wage and you do a lot of heavy lifting so do yourself a favour and go work at tim hortons or mcdonalds for minimum wage and enjoy life.
