Great company to work for!

Passion and People Focused

Retail Support (Current Employee)
Minneapolis, MN

I have been working at Sleep Number by Select Comfort full-time for more than 5 years

ProsSmall company so everyone has the ability to affect change. Company fosters collaboration and cross functional partnership. People are friendly and care about their co-workers.

ConsLack of additional education or training at corporate level, there is no ability to learn new skills. Company is growing and wants to grow but still operates as a small company in some areas.

Advice to Senior ManagementTake time to connect with employees throughout the organization. Be open and honest with plans for company and how employees can make the greatest impacts.

Great for a while, exhausting in the long run.

Anonymous Employee (Current Employee)
Chicago, IL

I have been working at Sleep Number by Select Comfort full-time for more than 3 years

ProsLow stress with customer contact. Work life balance is fairly reasonable. Pay is very good if you perform. Great benefits, good communication structure.

ConsAll blame goes to retail front line. Not the mismanagement of corporate or bad corporate ideas. Also, goals are unrealistic at times for stores.

Advice to Senior ManagementGreat company to work for, but there needs to be less micromanaging at the store level.

Management Heart in the Right Place, but Poor Execution

Anonymous Employee (Current Employee)

I have been working at Sleep Number by Select Comfort full-time for more than a year

ProsStill has a small company feel even with steady growth. Product innovation is highly encouraged.

R&D time seems too rushed.

Please check out the job opportunity very , very well before taking it. They don't tell you one quarter of the truth.

Anonymous Employee (Current Employee)

I have been working at Sleep Number by Select Comfort full-time

ProsDon't have to do much in way of sales, just doing busy work in case a customer walks in.

ConsEverything from top to bottom is in shambles. Cult like atmosphere. Always in that "Gotcha" mode. Motivational practices are horrific. All politics. Strongly advise against applying for a job there.

Advice to Senior ManagementStart thinking about ways to bring customers into the stores instead of your rah rah fraternity type approach and having the employees make 50 phone calls a day. You want to be a big time operator start acting like one. Upper management has no idea what their regional and district managers are doing to their company. Human resources can not be called on for anything. Situations are just swept under the rug or come back at you instead of helping you.

No, I would not recommend this company to a friend – I'm not optimistic about the outlook for this company

Great working environment--I wish I'd found Sleep Number years ago

Human Resources (Current Employee)
Plymouth, MN

I have been working at Sleep Number by Select Comfort full-time for more than a year

ProsI've been working for Sleep Number for just over a year. It has been a wonderful place to work and I only wish I'd found it much sooner than I did. The hiring process can be a bit demanding and they are very selective, but if you can get in the door, do it! Compensation and benefits are great. Work is rewarding and valued. I love coming into work!

• Environment is clean, modern, and well-kept
• Colleagues are a joy to work with
• Innovative culture makes it easy to stay excited about working here
• I'm valued for my individual strengths
• Great work-life balance
• Supportive culture

Cons• Some of upper management sometimes feels a little out of touch with the "worker bees" -- it might do them good to build rapport beyond their direct reports

Yes, I would recommend this company to a friend – I'm optimistic about the outlook for this company
