    Current Employee - Production Supervisor

    I have been working at Serta full-time

    Pros

    Great Pay, profit sharing, advancement opportunities, major holidays off, discounts at some surrounding stores/retails

    Cons

    Stressful work environment, high level of pressure put on management team from higher ups and most importantly - no family life (60+ hours a week)

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Being a production driven industry, high stress level is expected, but working people like robots and expecting the same results after the labor they adhere to for 12+ hours is inhuman.

    I worked at Serta

    Pros

    I believe that they offer competitive wages and a fair benefits package in addition to ample opportunities to move up within the company.

    Cons

    There were some ongoing communication issues and recurring management problems with upper management. The flow of information downwards was not always the best.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Please keep offering the type of product quality and equitable treatment to your employees that you have in the past few years.
