They don't care about people
Sales Representative (Former Employee) –  Thunder Bay, ON16 May 2018
I worked there for 3 months as a sales person. The other sales people bring you down and make you feel bad about yourself so you won't do well. You sit in a back room in the dark with the other sales people it's like being in a tank full of sharks and snakes. Management will not work with you for your problems, they will just throw you out like garbage. It's a disgusting company to work for. Do not try it!!
Also its commission in sales and you hardly get a chance to sell!!
Pros
Nice costumers
Cons
Commission paid, bad management!

Longggg hoursssss
Sales Associate (Former Employee) –  Red Deer, AB12 May 2018
Horrible don't work there. Struggle to make money. Poor quality items even customers see it. It's all commission based and the hours drag by. You have to watch a screen for your turn to sell. Customers are under surveillance so you see them. It's a joke. Sign the list so you wait for your turn . Some just come in for looking your turn is wasted. Back to sales room to an over crowded sales team in the room like 10 people. Everyone is trying to make a wage it's all luck so there are better sales jobs out there.
Saturated with sales people.
Pros
Free coffee and donuts
Cons
Not much, not good income

Not a good place to work
Sales Professional (Former Employee) –  Vaughan, ON8 May 2018
Not a good place to work.
You need to finish your probation time to have some benefits but they extend your probation time 2 or 3 times and actually you have no benefit for a long time.
Your colleagues in sale steal your customer and managers do not do anything about it because they just look after sales not people.

Not advisable to work here
Front Office Associate (Current Employee) –  Guelph, ON8 May 2018
This company will not appreciate you.
The Office associates are treated worse than garbage. Always getting thrown under the bus, no appreciation at all. Verbally abused by customers, management, most of sales team.
The pay is terrible. You have to give your left arm for the company and get peanuts in return.
Management also does not get paid well. Perhaps this is why most of them are not nice/fair to their employees.
I think if they treated their employees well, they would be able to keep good employees for a long time. Disappointed in this company as a whole.
Pros
meet some good people (coworkers), work in a clean office
Cons
bad pay, no respect, long hours, bad management

Leon's is a nice place to work.
Warehouse associate (Current Employee) –  Ottawa, ON27 April 2018
The atmosphere is nice as long as you get your work done. Schedule is decently flexible.Everyone is really easy going. A normal day involves clearing the docking area, placing newly arrived items, and retrieving items within the warehouse for delivery or for customers.

Low pay but easy advancement
CUSTOMER CARE MANAGER (Former Employee) –  Mississauga, ON9 April 2018
Good place to work if you're looking to advance quickly however don't expect to get paid more than the bare minimum. Managers make about a dollar ( at most) more than regular associates.
Pros
1 hour lunch
Cons
low pay

Better to be a sales floor person than a desk worker
Front Office Associate (Former Employee) –  Greater Sudbury, ON8 April 2018
You could tell that the sales people were much more respected in the store, that the ones doing half their work at the front desk. Not to mention all the other things we looked after like ensuring the deliveries are scheduled correctly, and that financing is done and collected properly. The staff around the front desk were wonderful but managent did not seem to care about us. Not understanding to mental health related issues.

Good workplace culture
Customs Administrator at Leon's Home Office (Former Employee) –  Toronto, ON21 March 2018
A typical day at the job is productive and their cultural workplace of always valuing an employee is great. I learned about how they do business and for my first job, they are very helpful. Always pushing you to do better. The management is very friendly. If you do a good job here they will try to keep their employees. A good team player place. The majority of management and high profiles in the company have been in the company for an extensive amount of time. The majority of their employees move up with an extensive amount of time there.

Terrible Management
Delivery Dispatcher (Former Employee) –  Calgary, AB14 March 2018
Working at Leon's was okay if you were in with the right managers, but if you weren't then you were unable to advance and were unable to take time off when requested. The benefits would be great but they don't kick in until you have worked there for a year. The sales people were generally very nice but they believed that it was your job to fix their mistakes and if you called them out they could get very hostile.

you have been warned
Delivery Driver (Former Employee) –  Scarborough, ON11 March 2018
you will have long hours delivering you finish when the truck is empty you start 7am you might finish till 10pm depending on your load and your not paid hourly but by incentive you don't get paid picking up damage return items

they lack training example showing you how assemble/disassemble fridges properly

lack proper safety procedures lifting items properly and some items are extremely like a washer


there are some drivers there that will rush you to finish the job without stopping they don't care about your safety

management is poor lack communication and beware if your the rookie they will try and make you work 6 days a week
Pros
tips from customers
Cons
long hours

Short Lived
Front Desk Clerk (Former Employee) –  Brockville, ON10 March 2018
Working at Leon's for the month that I did (turns out they put a posting on Indeed after unclear instructions from the company owner) work at Leon's it wasn't too bad - the job itself is interesting a little monotonous but it was a job. Handling payments is a piece of cake, the customers not so much. There's a wide range of people you meet and different situations you come across for each customer.

Good place to work.
Warehouse Supervisor (Current Employee) –  Calgary, AB28 February 2018
Hard work for sure. Need to be fast to get the days work done. They use Lift Trucks, so you must be comfortable working with them. If you can think then this job is no problem. Yeah, there's heavy lifting, but there are easy methods the supervisors are willing to teach you, and always other people and equipment to help you. They have a great work culture which makes it a joy to work with everybody there.
Pros
The people and experience you will gain.
Cons
Heavy lifting

Not Great
Anonymous (Former Employee) –  Windsor, ON26 February 2018
Felt incredibly under trained, and felt very secluded. You come into a place where everybody is already very close and it makes it difficult to feel like you fit in. Also not paid very well and you have to wait a long time to be able to use the benefits.

MERCHANDISING/STORE MANAGER (Former Employee) –  Mississauga, ON4 February 2018
After working there for ten years, it was like working with family...close and friendly environment... however the holidays hours, pay structure and under appreciation of their employees make Leons a 3 or 2 in my book.
