I have been working at Mattress Firm full-time (more than 3 years)

Pros

Mattress Firm has a great company culture and is a fun place to work, despite being a little slower paced at times. You get a ton of sales training before you are expected to start actually selling. Training is about 4-6 weeks or so and at the end of it you actually fly out to Atlanta and have a week long training camp with other new employees around the company.

This is my first real job out of college and I kind of took it as a resume builder just to start doing something. A few years later I've totally fallen in love with the company and I'm so happy that I ended up here. Telling people you are a mattress salesman isn't sexy; when people know you have a college education and you work at mattress store they will look at you like you have three heads, but this job is awesome! I have fun most days I come into work; it's serious but relaxed at the same time. Mattress Firm is a performance based company, so I've been able to move up very quickly, unlike some of my friends who have waited years for a promotion at other companies. I've also earned a very good living, making a lot more money at Mattress Firm than I would have if I had gone into accounting or finance. I'm a very competitive person, I was involved in college athletics, and I like the fact that Mattress Firm is about your results and not your tenure.

The position has a salary, so you'll never go hungry if you have a bad month, but you do earn commissions so you can make your own paycheck depending on how good you are. I wasn't sure about that going into this job; I was raised on the idea that you go to school and get a salaried job. Luckily for me, I've always done well, but I'm still working on getting better. I don't think I could work a normal job where I get paid the same as the person next me, or less if they are more tenured, if I'm more productive than they are.

Cons

The hours are the biggest draw back. It's not horrific retail hours but it's retail hours. You'll work weekends and holiday and anytime people shop.

    Pros

    You can write your own check in a sense, the corporate culture great, and training is amazing!

    Cons

    The downside is there could be more flexible scheduling to allow associates to have a more balance life. Its a retail job!

    Creating a more dynamic scheduling process in appeal to associates wanting a more balanced life.
