Sub-Contractor (Current Employee) – Nashville, TN – April 8, 2019
I would recommend Family Leisure to those who want to learn the trade of building pools. They also deliver at home “leisure” activities such as pool tables, shuffle board and much more. Overall great place to work.

Lead installer of hot tubs/playsets/pool tables (Current Employee) – Little Rock, AR – October 1, 2017
Typical day includes reviewing the days line-up from paperwork, loading truck according to line-up, traveling across Arkansas to customers' address, installing product, collecting mileage payment and returning to warehouse to load next job.
Your day ends when you complete your line-up.
Building a pool table was one of the most difficult skills to learn; however rewarding once mastered.
Management is very laid back as long as the jobs get done correctly and customer is satisfied.
The best part of the job is working at your own pace and not under a supervisor all day.
Nice store. Nice location. Nice high-end products. I was given extensive training for every product that was sold. From umbrellas, to spas.You could not sell a product before you went through training. The spa and pool training took several weeks each. Good training by the general manager.
Good benefits, exceptional work environment, caring management
Sales Associate (Current Employee) – Oklahoma City, OK – February 26, 2017
I've been working with this company for some time. The experience is and has been a pleasant one! The managers and more seasoned employees have always been very helpful if I had a question about something. I have found the owner is fair and sincere. My managers are equally as fair and reasonable to deal with. And, the staff is all around a great bunch of people to work with! The hours can be long but very profitable. The culture, though it is a sales job, is unlike any other that I've seen in previous sales jobs I've had before. The staff want to see others succeed and are pretty genuine about it. Everyday is a teaching experience and any of my questions I have were received eagerly and are welcomed. They have continued training on previous and rollout products. Even if you're tenured and have learned some things about it prior you have refresher training throughout the year with the knowledgeable representatives from the actual manufacturers. This company is, as a whole, a place that wants there staff to be successful and a pretty good job overall.
Continued support and training, benefits, open door policy, team building success coaching
Pool Installer (Former Employee) – Bartlett, TN – August 22, 2016
Build 2-4 pools a day with 3 other crew members in the heat, everyone got along and we were paid by job. hardest part of the job was putting the wall up and the most enjoyable part of the job was when it was finished.
Service Technician (Current Employee) – Oklahoma City, OK – December 11, 2015
it has its constant problems with execution of its own procedures in day to day tasks but overall a very successful business. i got a dollar raise after proving myself to be a competent worker come to find out 4 months later "it didnt go through"or something"" which was not only very unprofessional but highly frustrating. they gave me inaccurate back pay but i took what i could get as i was just happy to have my raise recognized. other than a few problems every now and then i am happy to work there overall. its a smaller business with a large niche clientele with little competition which makes it very valuable.
I loved the job because it was so easy, mostly everyone was easy to work with they were lazy but i like i said the job was easy so it was ok doing the work by yourself. Everyone in the office always made something out of nothing and stress over the smallest things, you do have job security but a chance of advancement or moving up in ranks it will not happen there the pay is very small x-rays is very small and you have to look at least 20 years to making 20 bucks but as tight as family leisure is they will fire you before they pay you too much.
45 minutes to an hour lunches, can clock out as soon as you finish your work, don't have to talk to anyone
Will not give a pay raise, $12 an hour is a major loss to them
MNGR- MARK STANT (Current Employee) – Olathe, KS – November 3, 2013
A typical day at work is signing in on the rotation list. My Sales Team and I greet our customers as soon as they walk in the door. I have learned so much about different products that we sell. It is an every day learning process. There are so many products and so much to learn with each new item that comes in, I find it very exciting. The management isn't the best I have seen, but it isn't the worst either. The hardest part of the job is any repetitive lifting of furniture. It may be hard, but I do enjoy rearranging and making thins look just right. My co-workers are fun and very helpful with any situations that I may have questions about. The most enjoyable part of the job is making my customer happy. I get them the product they want and ensure that I do everything I can to make them smile.
Customer Service (Former Employee) – antioch tn – July 10, 2013
i would walk in turn on computer grab papers out of file and start calling customers to schedule their order. if no orders to be filed yet i would call previous customers to ask if they enjoyed their package. i learned more about maps and locations. i learned about pool parts. management was ok.they couldve been more organized. the hardest part of the day was when the phones would start ringing and there wasnt enough people to answer them. what i liked about this job was that i got to meet many different people everyday. i like that i got to work with a computer. i did like the fact that i got to learnd about pools and how hard they really are to maintain
