I worked at Mattress Firm full-time (More than a year)

Pros

The money is good for an entry level sales position.

Cons

Working every night, every holiday, and every weekend gets old really fast. For the amount of time and dedication, and lack of the ability to have a personal life, they should really compensate their employees with better pay.

Advice to Management

Don't put your locations so close together. You are often times forcing your sales people to cut each others throat by pitting them against each other to make a sale to the same customer.

    I have been working at Mattress Firm full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    Great Culture, Environment, Co-Workers, Decent Pay for a sales job, Good Benefits and Time off is pretty accessible. It's is an okay job if you don't have a wife and small children. 10-8 really takes a toll on family life.

    Cons

    Hours, Work-Life Balance, Favoritism. Not- Transparent--When I started there was no overtime, then I aks how overtime is paid several times with no response. The hourly pay on the check stubs does not match my math and I went to School for Business...I just want an explanation. Also, if you are in a slow store do not expect to make the big bucks.

    Advice to Management

    Look into the small picture stuff more. Take complaints seriously, and be more transparent.

    Pros

    Big company Lot's of stores

    Cons

    In some cases the company is not honest with employees. Not willing to pay much for the amount of hours you work. The upper management only take care of people in upper management from what I see. Take ideals you give them what a wile and use the ideals later to make it look like it was there Ideal. too many stores lump together
    .

    Advice to Management

    Make sure you take care of your employees. When you find a employee that is loyal to mattress firm be loyal to the employee..
