Current Employee - Mattress Professional  in  Allentown, PA
Current Employee - Mattress Professional in Allentown, PA

I have been working at Sleepy's full-time for more than a year

Pros

strong commission / bonus structure.

Cons

long hours ( as a full time mattress prof. you could be scheduled 60 hours in 1 week), not all locations see good traffic.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

find a fair way to keep sales staff at current income levels and only have them work 40 hours a week. Give extra compensation to those stuck in slower locations so they don't starve.

    I have been working at Sleepy's full-time for more than a year

    Pros

    low cost healthcare
    you cab do as you want because upper management doesn't care

    Cons

    very micro managed
    double standards by that I mean one salesperson was giving draw forgivness 2x and no one else was
    promoting people to management that are imcompent
    extremely long hrs no family life
    they have a huge selection of beds to sell however corporate has changed the cliffs on the beds so if you can't stay within the tier you loose big $$$$
    management talks about other mps behind their back
    this is the most unorganized company I have every worked for. they want you to take every deal at all cost. However when you do the only person that wins is management . the mp will make nothing .
    If your late opening the stores and several mps are management does nothing.
    management will tell you anything to shut you up and keep you quiet .
    promotions are giving to people who are YES SIR people
    Giving sign on bonuses to people with little to no experience in the field because they are desperate for breathing bodies

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Former Employee - Licensing Associate  in  Hicksville, NY
    Former Employee - Licensing Associate in Hicksville, NY

    I worked at Sleepy's full-time for less than a year

    Pros

    - Discounts are reasonable.
    - Good co-workers(depending on dept).

    Cons

    - Management do not help you succeed nor pay attention if any problems arises.
    - Management avoid conflicts, which leads to poor leadership.
    - Micro-Management from Management.
    - Lack of communication from Management
    - Learning a program is essential. Unfortunately, Management do not understand that concept.
    - Dead end position and no room for growth.
    - Too much politics.
    - "Licensing Associate? What's that?" In other words, very useless title. Title does not help you in any way with a career in Finance or Accounting. In fact, the position doesn't even belong in that category.
    - No work ethics.
    - Management is dishonest.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    If any higher management see this...Please release the current Management from the dept! Out of my entire working career, I've never seen poor management in my entire life. Hire new people who know how to lead a dept and train the workers with useful information for their career.
