I worked at Simmons Bedding full-time

Pros

There are many wonderful people that worked at Simmons while I was there that really felt like family. They had a team prospective as a whole.

Cons

There are some managers that are quite dis-engaged with the company. These managers only see the numbers in front of them and seem to not consider employees at all.

Advice to Management

Management needs to have less focus on the 10,000 foot view of the company and actually meet and converse with the employees that actually do the work so they have be a true leader.

    I have been working at Simmons Bedding full-time

    Pros

    The salary range was slightly above average for the area. Benefits are okay.

    Cons

    You will not work less than 60 hours a week. Shifts are 12 hours per day Monday - Saturday. There are very few Saturdays that we do not work. Some Saturdays are less than 12 but you never know more than 24 hours in advance. You can also forget about their "paid holidays". If you get a Monday holiday off, you may end up having to work it anyway with no additional compensation. Upper management at corporate does not care at all as long as the plants are pushing out pieces and making the sales. Plant level managers are powerless and have to go along with it or they will be replaced. Supervisors are pushed to the limit and there is no where to go for support. Everyone is miserable. If you complain you are told to go find another job.

    Advice to Management

    Stop treating your employees like they are machines. Come up with a solution to the extremely long and abusive hours. It's difficult to want to do a great job and give 110% when you feel like a beaten dog. How do you expect us to be happy and productive a company that clearly does not care? We don't want to go to another job because we love what we do. We just want the company to realize what it's doing and make life better for us so we can do our jobs. Simmons is a good company with great products but it's hard to feel proud of this company for what it does. It's too bad that a few idiots in charge can turn it into ta miserable place to work. We just hang on hoping it gets better but sooner or later you are going to lose a lot of great people.
