    Merchandising Interview

    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied online. I interviewed at Mattress Firm.

    Interview

    Had a phone interview and two in person interviews which I thought went well. It seemed like it would be a nice place to work. The interview in my opinion was very laid back and mostly conversational about why I was interested in the role and why I thought I’d be a good fit. I was very interested in the position, was asked for references but then complete silence. I was told I’d hear back by the end of the week.Never heard back at all with a yes or no.

    Manager Interview

    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied through an employee referral. The process took 2 weeks. I interviewed at Mattress Firm (Houston, TX).

    Interview

    Couldn't be more disappointed in this interview process....received a phone interview after they sent me an email telling me that they think I would be the perfect fit for their company. Went and met with the DM for a face to face and then with the area manager soon after. She told me about the low pay and long hours, but said it would pay off in the commission. Sent a thank you letter to all the people who interviewed me and then didn't hear back from over a week. Then received a rejection email with little explanation of why I was rejected.

    Difficult Interview

    Application

    I applied through an employee referral. I interviewed at Mattress Firm (Houston, TX).

    Interview

    Due to unusual heavy traffic and I mistakenly stopped at the wrong location a mile from the correct one, I arrived at 2:01 for a 2:00 interview. I was denied an interview because I was late. Be informed this company demands perfection with no excuses for low paying, long hour jobs. Unless your single and your ultimate career goal is 50k to 60k a year, this is not a good opportunity.

    Sales Manager Interview

    Negative Experience

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 1+ week. I interviewed at Mattress Firm (New York, NY) in December 2017.

    Interview

    At no point was i interviewed by who I was "supposed" to interview with. The first interview was by phone. The regional manager was apparently busy so they had a manager from another state call me. Super easy interview, they pretty much just want to get a feel for you. Then I was called to set up an in person interview. That was supposed to be with a regional manager but that again didnt happen. I was met by a store manager. The questions were pretty basic like any other interview, but there is ALOT. It took an hour to get throufh all questions. A little much for a person selling a MATTRESS!
