I worked at Sleep Train Mattress Centers full-time (more than 3 years)

Pros

good pay, great benefits, lots of face time with CEO, VP, well...pretty much your whole management ladder. Plenty of locations from Washington state all the way down to the California Mexico boarder

Cons

Business becomes your LIFE. Also some unrealistic sales goals at poor locations which have NEVER even gotten close to those goals.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Just because it's "Always been done this way" doesn't mean it is the "Best" way.

    I have been working at Sleep Train Mattress Centers full-time (less than a year)

    Pros

    working with the customers and helping them find a matress that improves their health and relaxation.

    Cons

    was told company pays a certain commission, when the pay check comes it is not what is being tod.lots of gray area when asking questions about certain situations. Not allowed to take breaks or lunch breaks, work long hours and often by youself. Commission is taken away for using financing. This company is all about money, not service.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Listen to sales associates who put in long hours and work with your customers. Very simple truth, Keep your employees happy and in turn customers will be as well. 11 hour shifts are expecting too much out of your employees
