    Positive Experience
    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied through a recruiter. The process took 1+ week. I interviewed at Sleepy's (North Dartmouth, MA) in February 2016.

    Interview

    I applied with a recruiter, who did a preliminary phone interview. After the phone interview I set up an interview with the District Manager. The interview with the District Manager lasted about 45 minutes and it felt more like a casual conversation.

    Easy Interview

    Application

    The process took 4+ weeks. I interviewed at Sleepy's.

    Interview

    They painted a picture perfect world where you make lots of money. Made it sound like the ideal place to work with friendly family work environment. Benefits package a joke.

    Interview Questions

    • can you work 5 11hr days with a draw vs commission salary   1 Answer

    Reasons for Declining

    Did research of company. Many bad reviews by employees and shoppers. Financial status not good for company. Millions in loans from investors provide unstable economic future for sleepys.

    Went to work for mattress firm. Better pay, alot less hours, greater commission potential. Company is family friendly vs sleepys that does not care about employee's family lifestyle.

    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 4+ weeks. I interviewed at Sleepy's (Fayetteville, NC) in July 2015.

    Interview

    Quick, painless interview. A recruiter will schedule the interview, place & time to meet a District Sales Manager. A good portion of the DSM's are people will sales and/or management position backgrounds which makes the interview very professional, while also being personable. They have a sheet of questions to ask, and they rate you on your ability to answer the question.

    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 1 day. I interviewed at Sleepy's (New York, NY) in June 2015.

    Interview

    it was a preliminary information collector who couldnt verify the location of the position. I wanted to know what state the position was in. The description said "NORTHEAST". It took several minutes to get an answer from an untrained interviewer who was basically typing my answers into a computer.

    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online. I interviewed at Sleepy's (Hicksville, NY) in May 2015.

    Interview

    The process started with a short interview by HR. Next up, the hiring manager. He probed and asked a lot of relevant questions. He did not rush the interview and it was very conversational. When he walked me out, he promised that HR would follow up. Unfortunately, they must be a classless organization because I never heard from HR. They left me hanging.

    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 2+ weeks. I interviewed at Sleepy's (Hicksville, NY) in May 2015.

    Interview

    Simple questions with the HR rep and assistant manager. The hiring process took place over a year ago, so I am not sure if it has changed from than. The two that interviewed me were not over baring or pressured me with overly detailed questions that were monotone.

    L&D Position Interview

    Negative Experience
    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online. I interviewed at Sleepy's.

    Interview

    The HR rep was very cooperative and available during the interview process but at the end of the second interview, she said she would contact me quickly and I never heard from her again. Three weeks later I got a canned email saying I wasn't selected. I find it very disrespectful and rude to not to call someone to tell them they have not been selected for a position. Especially after investing over 6 hours of my time.

    Sales Person Interview

    Interview

    I was told by the manager of a store that they were looking for people. After the initial interview I was told that my experience (4yrs.) in mattress sales was more than enough to qualify me. Afterwards, I recieved a call 2 months later saying the only thing that they could hire me for was sales assistant. Not sure what happened.

    Positive Experience
    Difficult Interview

    Application

    I applied through a recruiter. The process took 1+ week. I interviewed at Sleepy's (Salisbury, MD) in August 2014.

    Interview

    Application is completely online, and once posted a recruiter will contact you if Sleepy's is interested. Then you have your interview with your district's manager. All of the application and recruiting process is done either online or at the corporate level. The district managers in your area won't hear about you till the recruiter tells them. You will have several conversations with your recruiter before you even speak to the District Manager. And you will know within a day or two weather you got the job or not.
