    Interview

    Really quick process, informative and straight-up honest. phone interviewed with Rim, who is the absolutely best! in-person interview that was a few hours long but allowed me to truly understand the company. Interviewed with supervisor Phil, then manager Jesse and HR Kate. All were phenomenal and I'm so glad I work alongside these individuals.

    Software Engineer Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate
    No Offer
    Negative Experience
    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied online. I interviewed at Sleep Number Corporation.

    Interview

    Applied online, got a request to phone screen a week later.

    This is one of the worst experiences I've had even doing a prescreen. When I was setting up times to even do the phone screen, I had to speak to two different recruiters. No real information was given to me about who I would be speaking to but I assumed I would be talking to at least one of these recruiters if not both for a phone screen.

    I spoke to neither, instead I spoke to what I assume was an engineer. The guy was saying a million things that were completely wrong and also quite rude. I didn't even know his name and wouldn't tell me when I asked him. When I asked him a few questions, he sounded like he didn't even want to answer them or gave out short 3 word answers without going further.

    I don't even mind being rejected from the position, I wouldn't want to work here solely based off that experience. Good luck to anyone who does, you probably will regret it.

    Positive Experience
    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied through a recruiter. The process took 2 days. I interviewed at Sleep Number Corporation (Winnsboro, SC) in January 2020.

    Interview

    My experience very lighthearted. The recruiter was very interested in what I had to say. It was like catching up with a friend. I was nervous thinking about it, but when the time came I remembered to just be myself. Also utilized some tips that I learned. Like smiling. Even over the phone it makes you sound more approachable and lighthearted.

    HR Specialist Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Minneapolis, MN
    No Offer
    Negative Experience
    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 3+ months. I interviewed at Sleep Number Corporation (Minneapolis, MN) in June 2019.

    Interview

    Interview process took more then 3 months. Interview was 2 hours with 5 different people. It was weird that 3 of the interviewers didn't know how to conduct an interview. I felt I did very well but when I was declined, they told me they went with someone internal. The recruiter told me that another position would be opening soon that would better fit for my HR experience. When that position opened I applied for it. I reached out to the recruiter as an FYI and days later she told the position was cancelled and that it might become open in Feb 2020. Bad experience considering they had ZERO intention of considering me and I firmly believe that I was used for their pipeline for EEO as an affirmative action candidate.

    Sales Professional Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Pineville, NC
    No Offer
    Negative Experience
    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took a week. I interviewed at Sleep Number Corporation (Pineville, NC) in June 2019.

    Interview

    Spoke with the store manager. He started off by complimenting me on my resume, saying most people come in with 2-3 pages instead of just one. Asked the usual questions no one really cares about for a position like this, like why you're wanting to work specifically for Sleep Number and why they should choose you over other applicants. He then went on to tell me how difficult the job can be and that if you're not selling the products well, you'll be replaced. You know, stuff you love hearing when trying to get a job. I was hit with a good bit of negatives, such as the hours will suck and work-life balance isn't great. After all that he gave me a sheet of paper for some sort of quiz where he briefly explained some selling strategy and I had to emulate it. Again, stuff that's not important to the actual job. I then met the other two sales associates who spoke with me without the manager in the room. I was able to ask them any questions I had, but at that point the manager had already turned me off from the job so I didn't ask them much. Both of them gave off the vibe that they didn't want to be there so I was ready to go. After about a week I got an email from another Sleep Number location saying they would like me to come in for an interview with that manager, but after the negative experience at this location, I ignored it. Never got a denial email from the location I interviewed at.
