    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 3 days. I interviewed at Sleep Train Mattress Centers (Bellevue, WA) in July 2015.

    Interview

    Initial phone interview was great, very promising but they asked me to drive over 100 miles to Bellevue for the second interview on my own dime. I went anyway and the interview lasted 45 minutes, I got a call back in three hours asking if I could come back down again only for a drug screening. I asked if there was anyplace closer and they said no so I drove the next day another 100+ miles for a swab test that took 15 minutes and drove back.

    Interview

    Phone interview to make sure you're willing to work the long hours and to weed out complete idiots, then a first interview at the San Leandro HQ, then a final interview. Nothing out of the ordinary. While you're waiting for your interview they seat you in this little corner with a TV playing some company values video.

    Sales Associate Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Bellingham, WA
    No Offer
    Negative Experience

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 1 day. I interviewed at Sleep Train Mattress Centers (Bellingham, WA).

    Interview

    Applied on line and received a call an hour later. The man was very informative of all duties and benefits of job, however position open was local and would have to drive 2 hrs away to have an in person interview. I was quite upset they couldn't send a recruiter to the area they wanted a sales associate and once hired then would be willing to travel the 2 hrs for the 4 week training, so I declined the chance to interview.
