Poor training

I worked at Sleepy's full-time

Pros

If you're ever out of work, Sleepy's will hire you. They just need people willing to be in lockdown mode for eleven hours a day surrounded by beds.

Cons

Training class is a snooze, and it goes on for weeks. The very basics of adult learning principles are routinely ignored here. Trainers are not professionals who train for a living, but rather, people who used to work in the showrooms, but now have a job with corporate.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

You're going to continue to lose potentially your best salespeople because the training classes are not delivered by training and development professionals. There's a huge difference between a training professional and a Sleepy's professional. Pay an outside company to do an audit of your current training classes, and then implement their recommendations for improvement. That kind of talent is outside your company, not inside it. Why shoot yourself in the foot right from the get-go?

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

    Pros

    Good discount, good training, managers will help you close a deal

    Cons

    Long hours alone in show rooms. If in slower stores you'll barely make any money

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Instead of a draw system give a base salary and adjust commissions accordingly, that way employees aren't paying you to babysit a slow showroom
