busy satisfying position
Office Assistant (Current Employee), West Mifflin, PAMay 10, 2015
Pros: discount on purchases
Cons: retail hours not adjusted accordingly
The company is a wonderful company, the owner is amazing and very generous... The choice of office management is less than satisfactory. Unable to comply with the benefits of full time employees as opposed to part-time. Lacking in the ability to create a schedule that shows where the Full and Part-time associates belong.

they can do better
Not Applicable (Former Employee), Smithton, PADecember 2, 2014
Pros: easygoing, not strenuous
Cons: pay, poor management
the company turned into an almost endless bureaucracy not unlike the federal government. the bosses will not stand up for the workers beneath them because they are only worried about their own image. the compensation is laughable, in order to make any money you would need to work there 20+ years, unless you work on delivery, where you will make decent money. i had a very positive attitude when i started, after a number of years however, i realized Levin's is a company only out for itself. The moment where i lost any hope of making a career at Levin's was when my supervisor told me, "You are doing a fantastic job. Everyone I talk to has nothing but good things to say about you and how well you do the job, but we can't pay you more just because you do a better job. We don't want money to cloud your judgement." There is no incentive to do a good job. Why would go above and beyond and stress yourself for no reward? you will get your 30 cent raise every year and that is it.

Educational for sales experience
Sales Associate (Former Employee), Avon, OHOctober 21, 2014
Pros: close to home
Cons: long hours, difficult sales opportunities, too many associates
Very long hours with many days with no customer traffic. Although this job was close to home is was not effective for my family. I had a few situations with coworkers and management that was not deemed appropriate or handled properly. I appreciate the sales experience I gained in the technical knowledge of understanding sales volume and spiffs earned. The requirements to achieve these aspects.

Love the Job
Sales Consultant (Current Employee), Wexford, PASeptember 16, 2014
I love my job at Levins, the only down fall is the inconsistency. Sometimes its crazy busy sometimes its crazy slow. The management team is amazing and the people are great. Its 100% commission so the inconsistency makes it tough.

upper management needs to get it together
Sales Representative (Current Employee), West Mifflin, PASeptember 8, 2014
Pros: good adversiting
Cons: bad decision making
they take forever to make any type of serious decision making. There is no connection between what is going on between upper and lower level management.
It is a family environment, but at the same time the schedule makes it impossible to get any free time to be with your family.
If you don't hit your numbers, your done. You must a true salesmen to make it here. IF you can talk to people and learn fast this is the place to make some serious money.

Save yourself. Get out before you start!
Support staff (Current Employee), OhioApril 19, 2013
Pros: good discount
Cons: pay sucks, hours suck
Management does not appreciate the work you do. So much drama and BS. Employees are treated like they're disposable. The raises are generally .25. The hours are rediculous. LONG hours, always til 9pm and every weekend. You're also expected to work earlier and later when there are special sales. The company puts itself and their improvement before you and your family, etc.

Deliver Driver Helper (Former Employee), Smithton, PAFebruary 26, 2013
Pros: great coworkers
Cons: working for the managers
The company is all about money and does not care about what the employees say. They find ways to not pay bonuses that are promised to you. I learned how to deal with management that is spinless and will not stick up for their own employees, and how to be be taken advantage of. The delivery team can make good money if you are lucky. Busting your butt does nothing to improve you position in the company. If you don't mind working long hours, not knowing when you will be home, having a paycheck that goes up and down from week to week, all in the hopes of making some money, then this is your place. The only good thing is that the guys who work there are awesome.

long work days but the company cares about their employees
Customer Service Representative (Former Employee), Monroeville, PAJune 14, 2012
Pros: free lunch, good co-workers
Cons: long weekend hours
the majority of the hours i received were during the weekend and would include 12 hour days both friday and saturday. I worked a customer service job that taught me patience and organization. The hardest part of the job was dealing with someone when they became angry. I learned to let go when upset by an unsatisfied customer, and move on to the next person in need. My co-workers couldn't have been nicer. No matter how busy things got, i knew i could count on someone helping out. Management was normally willing to work with individuals that were displeased and come to some sort of agreement. The best part of the job is that management was willing to put money back into the company and cared about the employees. For instance on a day when it was 90 degrees outside and the air conditioning went out they brought ice cream in for everyone, and always provided lunch and dinner on weekends.

Pros: great discounts
Cons: more money
Levins was the best work place I had the pleasure of working. From co-worker to management, our store was a true team.

July 25, 2012

I am the former supervisor from the delivery department. I loved this job and the delivery teams are wonderful to work with. The management team is great to work with also!! I was with the company for 20 years and unfortunately relocating to another state and will miss the Levin family.
