Sales Associate (Former Employee) – BC. – 24 May 2017
Management is promoted from within for the most part with no formal training! There is a fly be the seat of your pants attitude. Those few who have training keep the ship afloat. Commission is low: 3% on the first 5K in delivered sales within a 1 week period, then 5% above that. Flat 3% on appliances and electronics. No base salary. 100% commission. There are perks for mattresses and 'add-ons' but only the very top sales people can make a good wage.
Retail hours: work when the customers are there. ie every weekend.
Customer Care Representative (Former Employee) – Mississauga, ON – 16 May 2017
Management did not know hot to do there own jobs and barely knew how to run a company. If you want a job where you just socialize and never grow then this is the place for you. Everyone working there left within a month of working there because the management is so bad to deal with. All the managers look like they have never managed anything in their lives. They are more concerned about where they are gong to be going out to get drinks then their own jobs. very disappointing place to work.
Warehouse Supervisor (Current Employee) – Sudbury, ON – 1 May 2017
overworked and under payed sums it up. but there is no future, no hope, and no reason to work here. you wont get a raise, you wont be treated fairly, and you will be replaced as soon as your inconvenient to the company, or start asking too many questions.
Warehouse Worker (Current Employee) – Burlington, ON – 26 April 2017
A typical day at work is counting inventory, going on truck to pick specific items out of the bins, building them, then putting it on the showroom. I've learned that as long as you keep moving and finding things to do, your day goes by a lot quicker and it seems that you have more fun while doing it. I work hard and I work fast. I like to get the job done so that when I go home and I can say that I accomplished something. I love the physical work, always hands on and lifting heavy objects. The hardest part of the job when it slows down and we have to do price changes for the whole day.
The people, physical work, 40 hours a week steady days
warehouse associate (Former Employee) – Ottawa, ON – 3 March 2017
Long hours and hard work easy to hurt your back if you're not using proper lifting technique's and the proper equipment provided. Really good people to work with in the warehouse but upper management is really bad in terms of communication and expectations. Bad communication between departments, example between sales n the warehouse associates
Well-Balanced Work Environment with Supportive Staff
Warehouse Supervisor (Former Employee) – Guelph, ON – 15 February 2017
Leon's had a very relaxed working environment while still providing a steady workload throughout the day. The employees were friendly and competent, and the management was supportive. The constant physical demands were difficult at first, but the job provided me with good experience in that area. Overall, it was a positive workplace and I am thankful for the skills I was able to acquire during my employment.
Customer Care Associate (Former Employee) – Etobicoke, ON – 2 January 2017
I worked there as a customer care department. Customer Care Manager is horrible. She does not train even new employee. She just put them into the floor. and finally we emploees are geeting yelled by the customers. the lady does not want teach anything to new employees. if anything happens wrong, just directly blame to new employees without knowing the truth behind it. They have always less employee. there is no time for others co-workers to replying anything. I do not blame my other associates. I know when they come into work, every minutes they have to take stresses and rush to finish work. lot of things they have to do in the same time. I do not know how she became customer care manager, she does not have any managerial skills. she is not even high school graduate.
Front Office Manager (Former Employee) – Brampton, ON – 1 January 2017
This is a good company for a younger person to start out with and to move up to different levels of the business. This job has flexible hours and provides an MIT program to allow other to advance in management.
Front Office/Customer Service (Former Employee) – Regina, SK – 28 December 2016
I worked for the company for just about 7 months was let go. They didn't give me a good reason, was told just wasn't working out. They are a joke of a company to work for, they don't care much about their employees I would never recommend the company to others for work, or to even shop there!

Warehouse Customer Service Representative (Former Employee) – Scarborough, ON – 7 December 2016
Considering the fact i was a warehouse customer service associate, there was a lot of heavy lifting to do when you first start the job. However, as the shift continues and customers start making their way to the clearance section where i am placed is when it is more interesting as you get to deal with customers. The fun part is trying to sell them the products and convince them to buy it.
