Mattress Firm receive paid vacation and personal time off.
2 weeks off each year
Two weeks per calendar year working for the company
Only 2 weeks at 40 hours/ week when I work 46 hours per week and they don’t pay your average pay with bonus which makes it punitive to use the PTO you accrue.
The worst thing about the Paid Time Off plan at Mattress Firm is that there are NO sick days that are separate from vacation days. If you call in sick, you forfeit a vacation day. There is a total of 12 PTO days per year that you can earn, and they accrue based on the number of hours that you work. As of last year, it is now possible to roll over up to half of your annual total of PTO days into the following year if they remain unused -- supposedly. I've learned to take what I'm told with a generous handful of salt. Previously, you just lost any that were unused; they made the act of taking PTO so difficult that it was routine for workers to have a couple days left over at the end of the year that you basically couldn't unload before the year ended, since stuff has to be requested 40+ days in advance.
Thought it was hard to take time off and be compensated like you'd sold nothing while you were gone.
this is one of the only plus sides
PTO is given based on tenure up to 3 weeks per year which rolls over and caps at two times the amount. Also get 5 incidental days and 3 floating holidays.
Start with two weeks/ year
you get 1.5 day off every month, which is not that enough
PTO is accrued slowly, I typically took unpaid time off (If I don't work, I don't sell. If I don't sell, I don't make commission.)
