I worked at Denver Mattress full-time (more than 5 years)Pros
First off, notice how most of the recent reviews for this company are so high that they are borderline ridiculous? This is because Denver Mattress "asked" (more like coerced) employees to put up a nice review so that potential candidates would see how "wonderful" it is to work for Denver Mattress. I worked for this company for 6 years and in that time span I had to put up with way too much unprofessional behavior. I started as a Sales Rep and left as a Store Manager. Pros are that you can earn a good living and learn a couple of things about managementCons
Listed in no particular order: You will work long hours (not too many hours 45+, but long days) as in going in at 9 AM and leaving at 8 PM. Sunrise to sun down. The turn based selling can cause some drama (you stole my customer...etc). This usually creates tension in most stores. You will unload semis...yes even the 200 Lbs adjustable beds. Floppy king size mattresses that will test your desire to work for the company every time you pick one up. Customer focus is so high that if you accidentally have a run in with a customer (which will happen eventually...because if it's one thing we humans are good at is conflict), that can black ball your career for a long time. Some weeks you will sell so little that the kid flipping burgers at your local burger joint will make more money than you (humiliating). You will have to do everything required of you to keep the store looking good, such as cleaning, moving displays, more cleaning, be the in-house decorator, among everything else you can come up with, (whether you're the store manage or the peon warehouse guy....work has to get done!). At one point you will have a narcissistic boss who will make your life miserable, and this is because they don't like educated people (why because they have alternate employment options?). So some of their District Managers may or may not have finished high school. I believe those are the most important cons for Denver Mattress, aside from the fact that they tried to high jack this site with their phony reviews just to try to look better.
The true reviews are on pages 3-4. Anything new is BS. At best, this company is a 3 star which is why I'm giving it that rating. To all the reviewers (who happen to be managers with the company, of course) that high jacked this page to make themselves look good in order to increase their status within the company...I feel sorry for you. Glassdoor is a website designed for people to truly be able to gauge a company's operations and see if it's a decent place to work. Just because you decided that DMC is going to be your graveyard, it doesn't mean that you get to misinform other people about it. Look in the mirror and stop acting like junkyard dogs trying to get in good with your master, for he only has one bone and it isn't for you.Doesn't RecommendNegative OutlookDisapproves of CEO
