    I have been working at Sleep Number by Select Comfort full-time (more than 3 years)

    Pros

    If you are in a high volume store then the pay is unbelievable. The products are amazing!

    Cons

    Be prepared to work nights, weekends, and every holiday. This is not a great job for those with families, especially woman with small children.The pay is high but you will be expected to give up a lot of your life to earn it. There is a lot of pressure to perform to their standards. They get rid of non performers fast. Managers will be working lots of hours. They don't like to hear any opinions that vary from corporate. If you disagree with any of corporate ideas then you will be labeled as "not a team player."

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Listen to your employees. They work in the stores and know what customers want and need. Respect employees time away from work. Working managers long hours burns them out and makes them less productive and lowers morale.

    Pros

    Beds are the best and easy to sell along with accessories. Working with customers is mutually rewarding if you are top notch in sales and intuitive. Good name recognition, more advertising as of late.

    Cons

    Where do I start? "Too many cooks spoil the broth" - well there are too many managers up the chain that just want to cover their butts and don't care about the salesforce that ACTUALLY MAKES MONEY FOR THE COMPANY. They change policies and procedures daily and take people away from MAKING SALES. You hire intelligent people, so why do you beat up on them constantly?

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Let the salesforce SELL. That is what they are there for, not to do silly, nonproductive busywork. Top management needs to address the middle management "covering their butts" by churning out nonesense on a daily basis to make it look like they are actually doing something. Stop moving the target for sales goals which is always way out of reach even for the best sales people, as we know that you know that if it is ridiculously high, we make less money. Month after month, that has caused people doing the SAME VOLUME to make 15-25% less in a year. Fair? I think not. Respect your people. They ARE the company.
