Approves of CEO

Pros

Schedule flexibility
You get to help people make a big decision in their life
Excellent income potential (depending on location)
Coworkers are cool

Cons

Very long hours
Often times working alone
Very little social life
Constant changes by management
Customer interactions monitored excessively

Advice to Management

Be more understanding to employee concerns and be a little empathetic. It is an extremely difficult job to convince every single person coming through the door that they have to spend a certain amount. I think more comfortability would be achieved if there was less scrutiny.

    Pros

    The products are of great quailty and the customer service was very professional. Working in the showroom was always a team effort and everyone got along very well.

    Cons

    Scheduling was conflicting at times but other than that, the working enviroment felt like you worked for a small mom-n-pop shop than a huge company.

    I'm not quite sure how things are with the company being under new management.

    I have been working at Mattress Discounters full-time (More than 5 years)

    Pros

    Apart from the benefit that is great. Working in the showroom like I do affords you to pick the days you work on a weekly bases so long a 4 or 5 days schedule is meet. I used this provided opportunity to go back to school.

    Cons

    As a commission based job, the uncertainty of what your take home at the end of each pay period can be unnerving.

    Advice to Management

    More communication
