    Pros

    Friendly work environment, very diverse workforce, fair promotions and pay reviews. Sealy is financially stable, large profit-margin, and offers a very generous employee discount on mattresses. Good communication from local leadership; progressive in developing visual workplace, 5-S, safety, and good union-management relations.

    Cons

    Terrible 12-14+ hour workdays...EVERY DAY. Was hired in and told "a couple of weeks during the summer" of extensive overtime! It might be okay to work here if you don't mind not having a life outside of work or are trying to escape a bad marriage!

    Advice to Management

    Implement 3 shifts...or at least hire additional supervisors so you can retain them by not having them work 65+ hours a week with no additional compensation for the additional hours (comp time/overtime payments). Or at least be upfront with new hires and let them know of the working hours involved before they accept the job offer.
