    I applied online. I interviewed at Mattress Firm (Tucson, AZ).

The phone interview was done by Deja, who was very pleasant and nice to speak with. With these two being my first impression of the company I thought i was making a good choice.

    Analyst Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Houston, TX
    No Offer
    Negative Experience
    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online. I interviewed at Mattress Firm (Houston, TX) in April 2017.

    Interview

    Very awkward meeting with the VP.
    He was pretty uptight with a sense of arrogance about him and was not personable at all.
    I got a bit thrown off at the beginning of the interview when the first thing that came out of his mouth :“Do you have any questions for me?”
    You would expect to be asked this question at the end of the interview but he asked it at the beginning.
    Then he proceeded by asking me questions from a piece of paper and he was looking down the entire time. Very awkward.
    It takes three weeks for them to give you an answer, luckily I was offered a position , so I was glad that nothing was pending between me and this company offer wise.
    My advice is to consider this company as a last resort .

    Manager On Duty Interview

    Anonymous Employee in Chicago, IL
    Accepted Offer
    Positive Experience
    Difficult Interview

    Application

    I applied through an employee referral. I interviewed at Mattress Firm (Chicago, IL) in March 2017.

    Interview

    The interview was a little bit intimidating at first. It was with the district manager and two of the area managers. It lasted for about an hour. They asked a lot of personal questions rather than just experience related questions.

    Application

    I applied through an employee referral. The process took 5 days. I interviewed at Mattress Firm in January 2017.

    Interview

    Very quick to respond to my application and within days I was sitting in an interview. Most of the interview was about myself and why I wanted to work there. The best part was hearing my interviewers story and how he came to be where he us now. I mostly wanted to know what they had to offer me that I wasn't currently getting at one of there local competitors.
