    I applied online. The process took 3 weeksinterviewed at Sleep Train Mattress Centers.

    It took about 2-3 weeks to receive a phone call for an interview. When you come in they have you do a quick questioner before your interview. Interview was pretty basic nothing that was really surprising at all.

    Sales Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Riverside, CA
    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Riverside, CA
    Application Details

    I applied online. The process took 2 weeksinterviewed at Sleep Train Mattress Centers in March 2014.

    Interview Details

    Initial communication was a phone interview, which went well.

    Was invited to a 1 on 1 interview, 60 miles away for a retail store in my city, it went well also.

    Then was invited to another 3rd interview with an area manager, again 60 miles away, it seemed to go well, but no offer of a job, but was told they would be calling.

    I never received a job offer, but I was emailed a one line response that I was not the one chosen, rather insulting considering the time and effort that went into this process.

    I do consider myself fortunate, this company seems to have a very difficult time with turnover, fresh job postings every month,

    so thank you Sleep Train for not hiring me, it was your loss, not mine.

    Painless over the phone interview followed by an interview with a District Sales Manager on-site. A few weeks later they call you in for a final interview and let you know if they want to hire. Don't feel special if you get hired. They hire everyone.
