I worked at Mattress Giant

Pros

good name brands, good quality products simmons, sealy, tempur pedic stearn & fosters kings down . nature sleep, protect- a- bed.

Cons

long lonely hours, the pay structure horrible, constant lies.. pushing the emvelope to the dege of legal and illegal, constantly changing the commission pay at our expense and to their gain, no guarantee pay on an invoice (base on the new pay plan depending on the gross marging you may not get paid) amazing that such large corporation gets away with this. on the brink of bankrupcy seems like every year just to change the pay structure to buy more time all at employees expence.. the sales associates have taken a 35-40 % pay cut since i had started working there.. our bonuses were reduce to a cap out level... they pocket the spiff $$ that vendors like sealy, simmons, stearn&fosters, kingsdown put into place to pay us as an incentive to sell their products,, well mattress giant would take the spiff and keept it for themselves all while not letting us know about this .. constantly insulting the employees intellegence
by liyng to us. way too many excellent employees have left tihis company for the same reason.. as you can read from all of these reviews these are the facts..they recently sold a portion of their northern market to mattress firm... all the signs are there this company is not going to be around that much longer.. i only hope that the current employees that are going through this mess, get out and leave for a better company.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

hope that another investor buys it and can create a much much better working environment. and defenitely way better pay structure. a structure that rewards the sales associate for selling on the price of the item, NOT ON THE GROSS MARGING,regular spiffs put in place by vendors not pocketing our spiff money, better bonuses, better store coverage. build better morale. end of year bonuses...and a thank you for doing what you do (it dosent hurt to say that once and a while
