Client Service Associate (Former Employee) – Mississauga, ON – 23 August 2018
Everything was good in this job. A peaceful and positive work environment. I really enjoyed the job because the work load was not much. But I just regret one thing that I was forced to put a resign from one of my managers as I asked for a week off to prepare for exams.
Customer Service Representative/Front Office (Former Employee) – Brampton, ON – 30 June 2018
A typical work day at Leons I would open my department, organize my files and make necessary phone calls before customers start to arrive. Working at Leons I have gained experience in working in a team environment while moving at a fast pace. I have also learned time management and many organizational skills. The workplace environment at Leons is very multicultural. I worked with and tended to many different groups of people. The hardest part of the job was getting the manufacturers to send customers parts in a timely manor. The most enjoyable part was the experience I shared with my co-workers. Overall, the 3 years I worked at Leons was an awesome learning experience.
Close to home and I was garunteed 40 hours a week.

loved the job at first, lots of freedom and independent work. Managers are nice and friendly but have no idea what they are doing, Only make 25 cents more than minimum wage, other employees feel taken advantage of and easily replaceable

Front office (Former Employee) – Edmonton, AB – 10 June 2018
.Half of the management we're just there to sit behind a desk and twiddle their thumbs. The other half knew how to do their job and we're helpful but only allowed their favorite employees to advance. The people you worked with were okay but most of them acted like they were in high school, the pay was not good , the way the schedule works some times you worked 10-11 days in a row. They also never had enough staff and it's rare to be fired no matter how much time you miss (unless they really don't like you). Overall I would absoutly not recommend working here unless you're desperate. The only good thing I can say is you can gain experience so that's helpful!
Okay Staff, probably not going to get fired, get experience
Bad pay, management is not good, not a lot of room for advancement, favoritism
Customer Service Representative (Former Employee) – Sudbury ON – 25 March 2018
Typical day is ok, learned a lot working in customer service department but there's ,no back-up from management, (for an example): if you will tell a customer no I am unable to give you an exchange after having that sofa for a year. Customer will call a Manager and the manager will give the customer what they want after you did your job they will cut your throat. NO BACK-UP!!!! If you have a tough skin and you don't mind looking like you don't know your job ... This is the place for you!
Sales associate (Former Employee) – Barrie, ON – 13 March 2018
It’s not the worst place to work, it’s good if you’re money hungry, but the hours suck! 12 hour shifts during the week and sometimes you get one weekend off a month unless it’s busy time near Christmas then you work every weekend. So not a good job for people that want a life and also have young kids. Pay was always good, no complain there! But you have a lot of targets to meet and if you don’t meet them youre always put on warning. There’s absolutely no job security. They have new employees hired and people let go at least once every few months. Always new faces working there which looks horrible on the company! They have no training skills to rain their staff as well, you’re basically just thrown on the floor and if you don’t make it then oh well they’ll let you go and hire someone new to practise on! Lol. ... but the money’s good! Also don’t reply on management to help you out, so unorganized and lazy.

Helper (Former Employee) – Laval, QC – 9 October 2017
Terrible management very unprofessional and unorganized staff never seen nothing like this place before to be honest . They ask you to show up a little before 7:00 since you start at that time and the managers and the director of the warehouse itself are showing up 10-20 minutes later. As a helper you don’t know whom you’re working with and papers and scans (every morning they loose 10-15 minutes looking for them because anybody puts them anywhere they wants) aren’t ready till 8:00 to load up the trucks because as I said the management team is always late and they figure out everything in rush all the road papers for the delivery team which causes a lot of product error or oversights. As a helper or driver you don’t make no good money you’re better off at Mc donalds or tims. Even if they pay you at commissions at the end of the day you make less then minimum wage. Like many other said if you’re a new guy they just don’t care you have to figure out you’re own on how they’ll pay you, when you’re working, and whom you’re working with.
Front office (Former Employee) – Windsor, ON – 19 September 2017
Leons provides a terrible work environment. The management team are lazy and would much rather deligate their jobs to the staff and sit on Facebook or sit in each other's offices gossiping. Management will require you to take manager calls because not everything "needs a manager" and expect the staff to train everyone who walks through the door. They leave new employees alone to fend for themselves instead of working unappealing hours. At the end of the day if you want to be stressed out 24/7 without help or training Leons is the place for you. #partofthefamily
Sales Associate (Former Employee) – Langley, BC – 28 August 2017
The problem for sales job at Leon's is that they always do not keep enough stocks, customer do not want to buy because there is no stock available, many orders got cancelled because customers have to wait for several months, sometimes, the manager blame it to you because they lost customer. manager always pushed you to sell more extended warranty, they set have target for you and it is difficult for you to reach, you may get fired because of it. Most of the sales guy only receive basic wage because of poor delivery .
Leon's is a public listed company, but the management is so poor, they never keep enough stock for customers to order, even they put items on sale for promotion, but no stock for customer to buy
