Leon's Brampton
SALES ASSOCIATE (Former Employee) –  Brampton, ON7 August 2018
It is difficult to work alongside older members of their team, with their vast number of customers throughout the years it is difficult to pick up sales, and there is still competition.

not a positive work environment
Delivery Driver/Warehouse Worker (Current Employee) –  Bracebridge, ON11 July 2018
A typical day at work is being on the delivery truck all day, driving from house to house and returning when the deliveries are finished. In the busy months we are out from 8am to sometimes 10pm or 11pm. The work environment is not positive or a happy place to be and the employees receive no respect from management
Pros
summer bonus
Cons
long hours, unhelpful and unkind staff

Terrible
Warehouse worker (Former Employee) –  Dartmouth, NS4 July 2018
I was always given a hard time by the management and it wasn't fun for me. I believe the only fun thing was greating customers when they needed things from us in the warehouse.

A Nightmare
Sales Associate (Former Employee) –  Ontario Quebec9 June 2018
Rudeness, bulliness, favorism and cheapness, are just a few of the many qualities of their culture. Upper management thinks you are stupid and they keep coming up with ways to make you work more and pay you less, while giving you lame explanation that all the changes are to your benefits.

A 4 - 5 week rotational schedule is so you cannot commit to anything other than working for them. You cannot go to school, have a hobby or anything. Managers think they are important and try people in an arrogant way. they give discounts to help for their favorite associates only to help them sell, if your not on that favorite list, you are selling at full price almost always. When they do give you a discount, they make it look like they save you from hunger, and the company lost so much money to help you out.

Most employees are low class, uneducated, arrogant and aggressive. Even though, I cannot deny I met a few good people there, despite its rareness.

If you are a top sales rep, in most stores, you are not making more than $70K, an average sales rep makes between $45 - $50K.
Pros
None
Cons
Long hours, low pay, arrogant management from head office to

Good opporunity for someone who can sell
Sales Associate (Former Employee) –  Guelph, ON24 May 2018
It pays to be the first in through door here in this cutthroat commission environment. The first person in gets the first interaction of the day as they place their name at the top of the batting order and sit down watching the screen which is a direct feed from the camera placed in front of the front doors. As the team works its way through the list without returning to the sales post, inevitably there comes a point where there are more customers than there are sales staff. This is when it becomes an "open" floor and the top sales people get to showcase their proficiency at "bouncing". Beware during this time if you are not effective at bouncing however, if one of the top dogs sniffs out a sales opportunity with a client you were working with that customer must say your name in order for you to be permitted back into the sale. This only typically happens during busy times so you're usually pretty safe from this. The hardest part of the job were the hours. 9am-9pm are your shifts, and open to close Saturday as well. The culture was great and if you want to learn the managers will likely be very eager to coach and develop you.
Pros
Great learning culture
Cons
No draw during slow periods

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.
