    Fantastic Products but So-So Management

    Pros

    The products that Select Comfort offers (beds and accessories) are really fantastic and easy to sell, particularly once you own them yourself (the company offers a great employee discount to help you buy a bed and the accessories). The other sales professionals and store managers are generally easy to get along with.

    Cons

    Like most retail jobs it's easy to burn out on the hours and days off - it's company policy that you aren't supposed to have back-to-back days off (although some store managers will allow their employees to do this) and you will rarely get an entire weekend off. During the "blackout" period over the holidays - mid-November through New Year's - no one can take a weekend off at all. Keep in mind that is is a commissioned sales job as well. Although you do make an hourly wage, there's no way to survive on that alone, so you have to be aggressive about making your monthly sales goal. If you're new to sales it tends to be a feast or famine situation (great sales one month and bad sales the next), so be prepared.

    Advice to Management

    Corporate management doesn't seem to have a clear idea of how they want to position themselves in the market and seem to be trying every idea in the book, which isn't necessarily a bad thing but does tend to get frustrating for the staff since there are constant policy changes. The local market manager is really ineffective and doesn't know what he's doing. I didn't look to him for help with anything at all.

    Pros

    * good training * great for person new to sales * salary + commission * reasonable hours * full time easy workload

    Cons

    * very corporately managed little room for new ideas or customization in your store to target customers * BORING... you just sit there most days * slim chance of promotion within company * have to work weekends of you will not hit goal

    Advice to Management

    Hire the right person for the right job and hire from within based on true numbers and KPI's not who tells you what you want to hear. the person who speaks her mind gets blackballed and the puppet with no experience gets to manage. this needs to change
