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

    Pros

    Easy to move up in the company. The culture is fun, youthful and inspirational. Constant training. You have lots of down time when things are slow. Its great if you are a student. Corporate has a lot of young people. They are very big into inspirational messages that feels really genuine. The pay is about 30k a year regardless of you making a sale. That isn't a lot but it is better than many companies where you make only commission. At least with MF, you know that you can't make any less than 30k a year.

    Cons

    long hours. The pay is better than most sales jobs, but its not enough. It is hard to make your sales, unless you are in a Market where people make lots of money. I find their "shopping competition" unethical. We are encouraged to use cell phones to record our competitors show rooms and prices. I hate doing that. The delivery process is awful. You are guaranteed to lose sales over it. Its boring. Unless you are a store manager, you will travel within about 20-30 miles to different stores within the market. This sucks because if you were working with someone and they walk on you, they may come back. When they do, you will be at another store. A lot of the times you would have to split the ticket. Because you move around so much, customer service issues fall through the cracks. A guest may call you with a unresolved issue. The next day she calls back but you are at another store. There PO systems in some markets are still being refined. There are always crashes with the reports and the PO system The training is pointless half of the time. However, some people love the company and want to stay forever. Some do not.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    MOD should stay in one store. It makes things so much easier for guest and for the overall efficiency of the day-to-day operations.
    We need weekends off!!!! There isn't a reason why any of us should be working open to close everyday without a weekend off.

    I worked at Mattress Firm full-time (more than 8 years)

    Pros

    if your in good with your bosses then you can be set for good, do something wrong and they will help you fix it and teach you how not to do it again

    Cons

    cover you a** if your working here, if the management team dose not like you they will do everything they can to get rid of you

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Stop being an all boys club with management, if someone makes a honest mistake it is a learning experience not fire them because they don't like you
