I applied online. The process took 1+ weekinterviewed at Mattress Firm (Atlanta, GA) in May 2015.

Interviewing was a multi-step process. Two phone interviews/pre-screening were conducted by corporate recruiters. Recruiters recommended that I interview in-person with district manager. I was asked which district worked best based on my address.

    Application

    I applied through an employee referral. The process took 3 daysinterviewed at Mattress Firm (Houston, TX) in March 2015.

    Interview

    Contacted by a recruiter for Mattress Firm by email and asked if I was interested in a preliminary phone interview. I said yes and set it up for three days later. The recruiter called me about five minutes before the scheduled time and asked if I was ready to talk. I am not sure if this was a part of the interview test or not. The phone interview was very normal and the questions were pretty easy. Normal things like "what was your last job like" and "what do you think a good trait of a sales person is?" It took about 20min and after he told me he would review with the district manager and if they wanted an in person interview they would call me in 3 days and if not, they would email me declining. The next day he called me in the evening when I could not answer and left a message saying they liked my interview and wanted to set up a face to face with the district manager for a week or so later. I called back the next day to confirm but no answer so I left a message. A week went by and no return call from them.

    Interview

    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.   1 Answer

    Negotiation

    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.
