    I have been working at Sleep Country Canada full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    Ok money

     Flexible when you want a day off

    Employee discounts

    Cons

    Bullying is every where ASM's and associates threaten. HR hides when you speak up. How can a woman that runs the company allow this to happen?

    Work every weekend, long hours they ensure you work 44 hours per week. Not normally the industry standard.

    Advice to Management

    Those that bully deal with it make it stop.

    Just because someone can sell does not mean they can manage people.

    I have been working at Sleep Country Canada full-time

    Pros

    Good pay
    Good benefits
    Coworkers if you are in the right store

    Cons

    Worst regional manager ever.
    Bullied about everything- sales, holidays, sick days.
    No life outside of work. You will work every weekend and lots of 11 hour days.
    However good your sales are - it's not good enough.
    HR - won't help when you ask for it so you're on your own.

    Advice to Management

    Check in on your associates and how they are being treated by regionals. I'm ours, nobody has any respect for him. Let them have a life outside of Sleep Country. We are adults, don't treat us like children.

    Pros

    Great company to work for. Lots of encouragement from Management and co-workers to further development. The best team environment in retail. Great high-quality product selection.

    Cons

    Working every Sunday; however, when you're in Sales, weekends are the peak days...but you adapt, and the rewards are there.

    Advice to Management

    None. Keep up the great work. I'm proud of having worked for Sleep Country and to have met many great co-workers and customers.

    Pros

    I believe that the opportunity SCC has to offer is unmatched by any other retailer on every level. Amazing company, culture & income opportunity!

    Cons

    Not much of a down side, but prepared to be your best. SCC attracts many talented people, so if you want to be near the top, you have your work cut out for you! This is an amazing opportunity if you believe your sales skills are elite and want to challenge yourself, and also sell a product in which you can have a direct impact on someone's life for the positive.

    Advice to Management

    Great leadership on every level that offer support, training, and amazing culture!

    Pros

    Smaller company, not as much red tape. Majority of the staff are quite helpful and friendly.

    Cons

    Inappropriate manager behaviour that bordered on bullying and harassment. Lack of information sharing to ensure success of new members.

    Advice to Management

    Managers need to have better training on how to properly coach employees and what is deemed acceptable language within a workplace.
