More work than pay.
Delivery Driver (Current Employee) –  OhioMay 18, 2018
Unobtainable bonuses due to things out of your control.
No overtime pay. Base pay of $97 per day, but you work your tail to the bone for it. Not worth it. You’re just a number to the management, and it shows. All Ohio delivery teams mistakes become YOURS.
Pros
Mileage pay, freedom of the road
Cons
Smart mouth supervisor Hassan, fixing multiple co worker mistakes, lose money due to others mistakes

Don't bother
Sales Associate (Former Employee) –  Pleasant Hills, PAMarch 25, 2018
Don't waste your time. There is no money to be made in selling furniture anymore. This company makes sure you can't succeed. Too many sales people are on the floor everyday. You can't build your own clients because they don't give you enough time. The sales people who make all the money have been there for years and have had time to build their customer base. You will also have sales people try to steal your customers away. You don't have alot of customers walk in to buy during most of the weekdays. The weekend is when the customers come in but with 30 sales people on the floor it's almost impossible to actually make some money. The customers are that rude lower class crowd. You get the bargain hunters and garage sale gang. These customers love their clearance furniture and will even try to haggle for that! This company is outdated with their management and ways of thinking.
Pros
Lunch Breaks
Cons
Pretty much everything

Not worth your time
Sales Associate (Former Employee) –  Pleasant Hills, PAJanuary 21, 2018
Work at Curry Hollow location. Management is lazy and checked out. You don't get people who want to spend money, you get the flea market and bargain hunter crowd. It's not worth the time you put in. You don't get enough time to build your client base. There are too many workers on the floor so Levin's makes sure you can't make money. They have just been sold because the owner was ready to retire. It's not a career it's just an in between jobs position or out of college job.
Pros
Time off
Cons
Long Hours, Too Many Sales People on Floor, Bargain Hunter Customers

Multi task is a must
Office Associate (Current Employee) –  Monroeville, PAJanuary 5, 2018
You have to be able to mulit task because you are helping and assisting everyone from customer to upper management. Answering phones, waiting on customers, assisting sales staff and management staff. Collecting MOP and explaining Financing Options and other Financial Programs that are available for the customer.
Pros
Furniture purchasing discounts
Cons
Hours of working

It's a job and your life while you're there
Delivery, Material handler (Current Employee) –  Smithton, PADecember 14, 2017
Commission based but most days you will only make your daily minimum of around $100 but not necessarily related to how long or hard you work; same amount regardless. "Bonus" opportunity every check but the requirement for it paired with the fact that it's determined by factors out of your control completely make it all but unattainable. Employees, especially experienced ones out of the warehouse are exhausted, overworked, angry and feel abandoned by upper management in regards to their concerns about most topics including pay and thus don't have much incentive to maintain the equipment. Expect to make right around a grand every two weeks but only if you're lucky enough to not have your merchandise loaded poorly on the truck since damaged product cuts out of your pay and expect to work 100+ hours every two weeks without overtime while dealing with customers, and breaks are not factored into your delivery schedule. Warehouse is like any warehouse job. Monotonous and pays enough for a single person.
Pros
Good benefits, delivery at stores is much better than at the warehouse and a good group of people to work with
Cons
Not enough pay for the hours and effort put in, aging equipment is prone to faults, the pay system is stacked against non-hourly employees and customers are difficult.

Hard work for low pay.
Dock support (Current Employee) –  Pittsburgh, PANovember 8, 2017
I don't mind physically hard work but the pay is very low. Starting pay is low and so are raises. I learned a lot about the furniture business I didn't know before.

Very laid back and relaxed atmosphere
Stock Handler/Maintainance (Former Employee) –  Robinson Township, PAAugust 22, 2017
I loved working for Levin. I was a part time stock handler on the loading dock of one of the stores. Pay was fair for what we did. Part timers were paid a differential so we made more per hour than full time dock workers, but no benefits were provided for part timers. I would of stayed here if my pay wouldn't of been cut going full time.
Pros
Free lunches almost every other weekend, laid back, nice co workers
Cons
Weekend work

very hard job with decent pay
Delivery Driver (Current Employee) –  Pittsburgh, PAJuly 28, 2017
They will work you into the ground. If you deliver from one of the remote stores you make decent money. When you decide to come off the road and work in the warehouse you will take an enormous pay cut.

Was a nice place to work but a management change had a negative impact on the office atmosphere
CUSTOMER SERVICE (Former Employee) –  Pleasant Hills, PAJune 4, 2017
I learned a lot about financing and working with customers face to face and on the phone.
The hardest part of the job was dealing with angry customers. Most times it was not our fault but we had to listen to their complaints, that was part of the job.
Many of the customers were very nice, even if there was an issue. I tried to focus on the nice customers and deal the best way I could to solve everyone's problems.
Pros
Close to home, fellow employees very good people.
Cons
unreasonable expectations

Worst place I ever worked
Customer Service (Former Employee) –  Pleasant Hills, PAMay 17, 2017
Management is cut throat, unprofessional, uneducated in labor laws and discriminates employees with health issues. Too much unnecessary drama which management creates. Nothing is kept confidential with management.

Wouldn't call it a career.
Material Handler/Forklift Operator/Delivery (Former Employee) –  Smithton, PANovember 29, 2016
The compensation was not too pleasing. The raises are disappointing, on average 30-40 cents per year as long as you show initiative. That really doesn't help much considering the cost of living goes up 2.5% on average each year, so it really just keeps you on level ground. Only way to make more than $20k working at the warehouse is doing delivery which is back breaking work. They need to re-evaluate their wages, maybe people would stay there. They do have paid vacation, holidays, and ok benefits.
Pros
Vacation benefits paid holidays friendly management
Cons
Mediocre wage, not alot of room to work in the warehouse.
