I worked at Mattress Firm full-time (more than an year)

Pros

The culture/values of the company are top-notch. They provide extensive support and training while keeping things positive and engaging. They strive for a "team" feeling, encouraging each person to be “the best” while celebrating all achievements.

Cons

Work/Life Balance is a challenge with long hours; average shift is 10-11 hours. Weekends and holidays are a must, and in some cases you may have to work an extra day/hours during the holidays. Staffing is inconsistent so you may be alone a whole day or working with several people. Travel is a must for all employees, especially when you first start. Employees are constantly moved from location to location even as Store Manager.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

More flexibility with schedules, including more staffing consistencies.

    Adequate Company

    I have been working at Mattress Firm

    Pros

    Guaranteed money, great company to gain management experience, teaches you to think on your feet, opportunity for rapid advancement to good money within 5 years or less in many markets.

    Cons

    A lot of sitting in a store by yourself waiting for guests to come in, not a great chance to earn commissions above your salary (draw) unless you're in a high traffic store.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Give more structure directly at the market level and more oversight. A lot goes on in the grey areas of the business that's not in the best interest of a fair and equitable work environment.
