I worked at Sealy

Pros

The best reason to work at Sealy is the the people. Overall Sealy Inc is a great place to work.

Cons

One of the downsides of working at Sealy is the every day attire requirements. Business dress is a requirement for every day.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Feedback for leadership at Sealy is to provide more flexibility to employees in terms of business attire and hours worked.

    I worked at Sealy

    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 ManagementAdvice

    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.
