    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.

    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.

    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.)

    I enjoyed my vacation once I had it but now that I have used it I have no idea when I will get more .

    There are many black out days that you will find in many retail stores, but your vacation pay is based on your previous year's commission, which if you sell well, you are compensated well over your time off.

    Paid Time off will determine overall wages earned year before.
