    Last month our Houston team gathered at the Houston Food Bank for our BEDx Houston conference to hear from our company leaders, volunteer, network with others, and experience our #MFRMLife culture.

Mattress Firm – Why Work For Us?


undefinedBack in 1986 when we entered into the business world, our founders had big dreams too.

Through hard work and dedication to getting the job done, that dream was realized. Today, Mattress Firm has grown from one store in Houston, Texas to more than 1,800 locations nationwide.

Now, as one of the largest and most successful retailers in the specialty bedding market, we have the opportunity to help young professionals, like you, achieve their dreams. Whether it's sales, management, franchise ownership or somewhere in between, we offer all the advantages of a "BIG" corporation together with all of the friendly familiar associated with a "SMALL" company. Here, as a member of the Mattress Firm team, you will find all of the openness and support you need to capitalize on the opportunities, large and small, which will present themselves daily.


undefinedAround here core values aren't just words found in a corporate handbook; they act as guidelines for better business and guide some of the best careers. Developing such a future-forward culture starts with identifying and defining beliefs. Then, these collective beliefs are developed and strengthened through a sense of responsibility, leadership, integrity, passion, innovation, teamwork and success. From there our core values take on an expanded meaning that is shared and reinforced every day by every member of the team.

Our vision is simple – to be the global choice for better sleep.

One might think those are lofty ambitions for a company that started just over 28 years ago, but they are quite understandable when you consider how far we've come in such a short period.

You see, we're successful because our emphasis isn't just on selling our products, it's on selling ourselves and what we stand for – satisfaction, service and our ongoing commitment to being the best at what we do. To achieve this we continually strive to hire the finest talent available... and that could mean you.

This won't be just another stop on your resume.

You owe it to yourself to experience the wide-open opportunities and collaborative environment that Mattress Firm has to offer. Mattress Firm is first and foremost a team; a team that through the dedicated efforts of many individuals makes for one strong corporation. Our commitment to teamwork and enhanced professional atmosphere is balanced with a casual environment where friendships are made and successes are rewarded. This can be seen in the track records and tenures of hundreds of professionals who proudly call Mattress Firm home to their careers. And though many think we’re all business, all work and no play makes for one dull workplace.

    I have been with Mattress Firm for over 8 years. WOW! I was blown away with the training and opportunities that were at my finger tips.The growth and opportunities are incredible. Earning can be lucrative an the guaranteed draw provides confidence in a commissioned pay scale. The culture here is fantastic! My coworkers have become my close friends and more like a family. The community service involvement makes me proud to represent Mattress Firm in my community.


    This is a retail sales position. If you are looking at any retail position consider that you may have to work Saturdays. Consequently, this is a plus during the week when you can run errands!
