    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Milwaukee, WI
    Application Details

    I applied through a recruiter. The process took 1+ weekinterviewed at Mattress Firm in March 2014.

    Interview Details

    I was contacted by a Mattress Firm recruiter based on my resume on CareerBuilder. After two initial phone conversations/interviews with that same recruiter, I was asked in for a face-to-face interview with the District Manager. This was a comfortable but formal, professional interview process, and very timely. I think this directly reflected the company culture itself.

    Negotiation Details
    The company was very forthcoming with what base salary and commission pay are as sales people within the corporate company, as well as the hours required. These were already enough and not flexible so I did not negotiate, but I did not need to.

    Manager On Duty Interview

    Application Details

    I applied online. The process took 5 daysinterviewed at Mattress Firm in February 2014.

    Interview Details

    One of the easiest and smoothest interview processes I've ever had the pleasure to be involved in. From my initial application online at mattressfirm.com to my first interview only took a couple of days, and was hired within a week.

    Interview Questions
    • I was asked what the hardest sale I ever had to make was. Wasn't hard, just unexpected.   View Answer
    Negotiation Details
    There was no need for negotiation. Felt that this was the perfect fit for me, and what they were offering was better than any of there competitors were offering, and the ability to move up within the company was a real eye opener. Have worked for similar companies in the past, and none of them offered the opportunities that this company had to offer. I've been with the company for 5 months, and already am being considered for a management position. Results may very for others as you get what you put into this career. In essence, if you put the effort in to be your best, your efforts will be rewarded with the best.

    Application Details

    I applied online. The process took 1+ weekinterviewed at Mattress Firm in February 2014.

    Interview Details

    The process is 2 step. after resume submission you get a call from someone in HR at the company HQ. then if you pass the phone interview you will be set up for a face to face with a District Manager. the company will ask you many of the standard interview questions. tell me of a time when........but they are looking for people who want to make a lot of money ethically....to me that was the bottom line. do you have the desire and drive to learn the craft and sell, and can you do it honestly and ethically

    Application Details

    I applied through a recruiter. The process took 1+ weekinterviewed at Mattress Firm.

    Interview Details

    I was notified because a recruiter saw my Resume' online. His name was Bryce. He was very nice and just asked general information and some things about my resume'. He told me what they were looking for and that I didn't need previous experience to sell mattresses. He set up a second interview with someone closer to where I lived. The second interview was actually at a building and they asked me more questions about my personality. They are looking to see if they feel like someone would buy from you, would want to work with you for long periods of time, and could you be their boss one day!
