    I have been working at Mattress Firm full-time (less than an year)

    Pros

    I started at Mattress Firm in February of 2014 in Nashville Tn market. I told them at the interview there was a possibility that I may be looking to move out of the area soon. We had considered putting our house on the market. I went to work for them, they treated me as a professional from day one. I felt connected to the group very soon. I did well in Nashville but my house sold the day I put it on the market. I told the District managers and they both were "we are sorry to see you go, but we will help you however we can". I decided to go to the Kansas City Market. My District Manager made calls for me, set me up very well as far as making my arrival a warm one. You start as an MOD or Manager of the Day. I worked in the KC market as an MOD for 9 working days. NINE, and was given my own store. Although it was not a very busy store I did the best I could at it and was promoted to a bigger store after 2 months. An opening came up for Area Manager and I asked if I should apply...An area manager usually has between 3 and 4 stores under them. I was encouraged and got the position. This was on November 1st. So in 8 months I went from brand new to Area manager. I have had a great experience. My management team is the best I have ever seen and I am 52 years old. I truly mean that. My district manager is the best people manager I have ever seen and she is great at operations too. Not one time have I had a conversation with her that made me think I was anything other than an equal. You are empowered to handle your business. You are EXPECTED to handle your business. The company philosophy is one of being a close knit group no matter how big the group is. The company is honest, ethical and as best as I can tell, means all of the company mantra. You can make money here. Good Money.....AND if you genuinely care about those around you, and have a teacher or coaches mentality all the while maintaining your own performance, you will be recognized for it......

    Cons

    Like most people, I wish the salary structure was a bit higher. On average, in order to hit your salary numbers in commissions, you have to sell about $40k per month....but your store may be only a 40k store, and you have your days off.....so your store may hit its numbers and you get bonuses on that. but if you haven't hit your commission/salary break even, you wont get all the bonus. I understand the reasoning for it but it does kind of take a little wind out of your sails.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    The continued support to life skills and training should never be abandoned. Employees REALLY appreciate things like going to the ranch in Houston for personal development....The POS system, is really sub par........it may look good on paper but in physical practice, you have to take way too long dealing with system issues....
