Sale Associate (Current Employee) – Calgary, AB – January 19, 2016
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.

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.

Loved the environment. Great abilities and fun and amazing people, I sold 750,000 dollars in my first year and that wasn't good enough. The goal for leons is One Million in order to keep your job. I did enjoy my job but some days I worked from 9:30am to 10:00pm. I am still passionate and love sales thank you

Stockroom Clerk (Former Employee) – Toronto, ON – October 8, 2015
At Leon's Furniture I worked very hard in the stock position of the store with other crew members. Doing stocked helped me build my team working, communication, problem solving and multi-tasking skills.

Front Dock Supervisor (Former Employee) – Burlington, ON – September 1, 2015
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.
Entry level workplace with little chance of advancement
Pick-up door supervisor & Inventory associate (Current Employee) – Edmonton AB – June 27, 2015
Entry level workplace, rapid change of workers. Managers and coworkers are friendly, but without proper human resource regulations, it is hard to work here for a long time. Inventory, receiving and management skills can be learnt here, which is the best part. When there is little customers--and it happens frequently-- the job can be super boring. There is little chance to get a raise unless changing the position. A very good place for young people to gain experience, but it is not a place for career seekers.
Warehouse Worker (Current Employee) – Edmonton, AB – May 5, 2015
Good for students are just in need for a part time summer job and are not looking for a full time job. Leons is an overall great place to work, fun employees, great work hang outs, and a responsible organization.
Driver (Former Employee) – Sudbury – March 23, 2015
I worked 1 year in the Sudbury , Ontario location... I've never seen so much employee abuse from upper management in my life .. I was a delivery driver for these crooks..they hire mostly students in the warehouse that don't have a clue about their rights as an employee . And the shady dealings I've seen there just blew my mind!!! They blalantly rip off customers with garbage furniture they get from China.
Sales Associate (Former Employee) – Simcoe, ON – March 7, 2015
Leon's was a competitive sales environment with up to 8 sales associates on the floor at one time. With a competitive environment there was a certain tension between sales staff. The environment was productive, however could be negative as well. The wages were 100% commission sales, and a bonus system was in place. Benefits were top of the line. The hours were very long each day, mostly 11-12 hour days.
