On 18 Dec we paid for a variable speed pool pump including installation and at that time was assured by Robert that installation would be completed before 12/31 and he would notify us of the date.. On 12/22 I called the store since I hadn't heard from Robert and he told me that he hadn't heard from his installer but since it was the Christmas weekend he would let me know "first thing Tuesday morning". I never heard from him, of course, so I called to cancel the installation and was told that I'd have to appear so they could scan the card for a refund. On Tuesday I went into the store, card in hand, they never looked at the card and after keying into his computer for several minutes gave me a register receipt showing all zeros and told me it was out of the system. When I got home I checked my AmEx account and the charge was there but there was no credit. I finally had to contest the charge and request a reversal with AmEx, and the result with dealing with Leslie Pool is that I missed the $1000.00 DWP rebate. Thank You Leslie Pool.

I am extremely disappointed in the pool closing service my wife received today.We were not charged the price quoted for starters. There were no chemicals added to the pool itself just the skimmers. Last year Anti algae was added by Leslie's guy's into the pool itself. The fittings at the filter end were left open and not covered.Last season everything was covered completely. I can upload photo's but i don't see a link. I guess Leslie's takes advantage of a women alone at home.I would like to see a partial refund.
I am a long time Leslies customer but yesterday I experienced the absolute worst customer service experience ever at your Forney Texas location. I returned a defaulty leaf master that was well within my warranty period and Allan, the store manager, berated me in front of other customers. He said that I returned everything I bought there and I told him that I only returned the warranted products that did not work. He snapped at me and started banging on his computer. He said that this was the second time I had returned it but that was not true. Even if it was true, it should be replaced if it was not working properly and still in the warranty period. He has always been rude and complains even when we ask for a water test but the experience yesterday was the worst ever at Leslies or any other store. I only go there because the next nearest Leslies is 15 miles away.
I was in your store #406 Manchester N.H., clercks tried hard but store manager was rude ,deceitful and should be replaced,see my letter to Mr Hayward. Bob Heavey Pres U store It---Pine Hollow campgrounds

I was interviewed twice, once by Josh of the Southington, CT store, then by Derik (District Manager)and was told there was a job in Newington,CT that Derik wanted me to wait for. Months passed with no contact by either person.
When I called Derik, he didn't have a clue about what happened.
Then I called Josh, who previously had expressed interest in having me work in the Southington store, now he tells me he is looking to get rid of people, not hire anyone?
Leslie's obviously lacks basic people skills , your managers can't even keep tract of who and when they spoke to someone!
Why would anyone want to work for a company that says one thing and does the opposite?
I have interacted with many employers in my career and have never experienced a more unprofessional and incompetant bunch of knuckleheads!
Dear Mr./ Ms. Anonymous, I'm afraid Mr. Hayward doesn't give a shit about customer service, the fact that they don't have a complaint line or a human resources department is proof of this.
He makes over $300,000!
They have only one person taking care of the stores in my area, the employee can't even go to the rest room, not to mention the stress of having to answer the phone, do water tests, and have a line of customers waiting for service. I would do everything possible to let the public know about all the other alternatives to shopping in leslies.
NAMCO is one of those companies!
The following email was returned back to me :
Where is your human resources department? This company is by far the worst I have ever encountered!
Called checking on purchase order transferred to 5 different people on hold for over 30 minutes. Very Very unorganized. I would not do busy with this company at all.
I have a horrible experience with store at Tatum and Greenway. The store manager pertain he knows everything and regardless of your issue tries to sell you something. Very rude and make incorrect statements and as soon as you confront him he backs off and says that he is one of top store managers who came from CA to make other stores profitable in AZ. He claims that Alex, former store manager was fired because of .....
he made statement that perfect weekly makes big difference in his pool. later on I asked him how do he maintains his pool. First he made up a story and later on he forgot what he said a minute ago and said he lives in an apartment.
I would highly recommend to ignore going to that store.

I just called Leslie Service department to schedule a Service Man visiting our leaking buster Pump. We believe it needs a new Part. The Customer Service name was Convey. He quoted me $95.00 per hour and a tripe charge for $25.00. I was wondering for Service Man to tell us which part he is going to order does not take him one hour. Therefore, I asked for supervisor. Convey said that his name is Cameron Novak and he is not available. I asked for his contact number. He said they do not allow giving his contact number. I asked for his email. He said he does not allow giving his email out. I asked him how I contact him. He said that he could put me on his voice mail. I left a voice mail for Mr. Novak. I heard from Mr. Novak within 15 minutes. He was yelling at me and telling me it is what it is! He was telling me either you pay or I cancel your appointment. There was no factor of negotiation or explanation. It was either you pay or you take a high way! This man is angry, inpatient, upset, and nasty. How he became a supervisor or a role model of the people in the company. I am not sure if he has canceled my appointment or not!
I have been a customer of Leslie for over 30 years I am. What is going on? I am confused! Would someone let me know please?
