    I worked at Metro Mattress full-time (More than 8 years)

    Pros

    Great pay & bonuses as long as you hit your monthly goal, great benifits, great 401k match. Room to advance from starting at entry level. You get to help people get a good nights rest.

    Cons

    Its a numbers game so you def have to obtain the ability to sell.. if not it may not be for you, although they will work with you and not just cut you from the team. Work every weekend / bi-weekly pay. Sometimes you get rude customers.

    Advice to Management

    Management is very professional, and will help you if needed.

    Sales Associate Interview

    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 2 days. I interviewed at Metro Mattress (Albany, NY) in August 2011.

    Interview

    You must demonstrate some level of professionalism. The company takes pride in their sales staff, as it is the working force of the company. I will warn you just because you got the job, doesn't mean that you have a job. The training process can be quite grueling and I would estimate only 50% make it through training. However if you have an ounce of intelligence and perseverance you will succeed. A candidate will be hired fairly easily and then you need to prove that you are starting a career, not just a job. Come the end of training which they do compensate you fairly well for, you will need to graduate exemplifying sales presentation and product knowledge to the Vice-President of Sales. Calm down if he is tough during your graduation, he is just testing you. Even if you presented a perfect sales presentation and aced your product knowledge grid, your tie might not be tied correctly ;).

    Interview Questions

    • When can you start training?   1 Answer

    Negotiation

    There is no negotiation in regards to the interview. Promotion can happen quickly based on your results. Your negotiation for an increased salary you must prove, despite your background.
