I applied online and the process took 1 week - interviewed at Mattress Firm in August 2011.

Interview Details – I first applied online than I received an email form the local recruiter to set up a phone interview. The phone interview was very easy and basic. Then I was set up to meet the dm for a face to face.

I declined the offer due to the fact that they require sales reps. to work 11 hours shifts, and the pay scale is draw vs. commission. I've been in sales long enough to know that with the pay structure they were offering I would not be making much over $30000 per year, and with the amount of hours they wanted me to work that would break down to nearly $12/hour.

The process took 2 weeks - interviewed at Mattress Firm in June 2009.

Interview Details – Applied 4 months before interview. Received a phone call informing that a phone interview was to take place in a week or so; took the phone interview, and waited 2-3 weeks before hearing a job offer. The interview was in person, very informal--with the DM and AM and they asked personality questions and questions concerning experience and drive. Make sure to research the company beforehand and know about their 5 year plan for aggressive expansion. AM and DM are great, but will work 60+ hours a week as it is a commission based job. The corporate culture is very corny.

Interview Question – What do you think about the company's expansion plans?   Answer Question
