    Sleepy's puts MD out of it's misery by purchasing it in Nov 2012

    I have been working at Mattress Discounters full-time (more than 5 years)

    Pros

    Now that Sleepys is in control, MD will have a much better foundation to stand on. Next day delivery, better products, improved management support and better advertising are exactly what was lacking before the purchase.
    After another six months this rating should increase to 4 stars if all goes well.

    Jon Studner is not with MD/Sleepys at all.

    Cons

    The looooooong hours are a killer. They expect you to give 110% for ten hours straight!!

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Keep the free pick up from the store like the old MD instead of charging $30 like Sleepys does. It is just to pad the bonuses of the VPs.

    I worked at Mattress Discounters

    Pros

    Good first job for a new grad or retired person with lots of time to kill.
    Lots of down time to read, do homework or rest.
    You are usually left alone by the managers if you sell enough and have a clean store.
    We do have some good & loyal customers that brighten up your day.

    Cons

    Long ELEVEN HOUR days FIVE or SIX a week. (maybe one half day)
    Lots of down time.

    Sales should be the number one priority, but the sales people are made to do everything in the store...from changing light bulbs, cleaning huge front windows, move displays, load beds onto customer's cars & shopping the competition.
    When you add up all the other jobs besides sales, the pay is not worth the effort.

    The biggest downside at MD is that our competition can deliver 99% of what they sell the NEXT day AND beat our prices by a wide margin. This leaves us with many lost sales and income.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    The management tells us to "take charge of your store as if you were the owner".
    Every time a suggestion is presented, it falls on deaf ears because we are just the sales grunts.
    Deliveries need to be at least include both Sat & Sundays WITH time slots at POS!!!
    Bring back the Headboards and get Simmons on our showroom floor.
    Oh Yeah, bring back the radio jingle that used to be on 24/7 a few years ago.

    I worked at Mattress Discounters

    Pros

    Schedule flexibility
    You get to help people make a big decision in their life
    Excellent income potential (depending on location)
    Coworkers are cool

    Cons

    Very long hours
    Often times working alone
    Very little social life
    Constant changes by management
    Customer interactions monitored excessively

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Be more understanding to employee concerns and be a little empathetic. It is an extremely difficult job to convince every single person coming through the door that they have to spend a certain amount. I think more comfortability would be achieved if there was less scrutiny.

    Pros

    The products are of great quailty and the customer service was very professional. Working in the showroom was always a team effort and everyone got along very well.

    Cons

    Scheduling was conflicting at times but other than that, the working enviroment felt like you worked for a small mom-n-pop shop than a huge company.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    I'm not quite sure how things are with the company being under new management.
