    I have been working at Sleep Country Canada full-time for more than 2 years

    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 worked at Sleep Country Canada full-time

    Pros

    - Used to be a good company to work with - with a community feel, and opportunities for growth. - good benefits

    Cons

    - Underpaid, overworked - Company fired a bunch of people (including top management) and expected the remaining employees to compensate. Top talent ran for the hills as soon as this happened

    Pros

    - OK Benefits - New Office - Compensation is VERY LOW compared to the market - Great place to start off your career but not a long-term job

    Cons

    - Management is selfish - They only care about managerial and senior positions - anything below that, they treat you like a number - No room for growth - High turnover rate

    Advice to Management

    - Put effort into ALL of your employees and not only the managerial level - Increase compensation

    I have been working at Sleep Country Canada full-time for more than 6 years

    Pros

    Great potential for income, write your own schedule in most cases. Lots of downtime. Good benefits and RRSP/DPSP.

    Cons

    Long hours and mandatory weekends. Also you can be moved to any store within a region at a days notice. You may even work alone for extended periods, although that can be a plus for some people I suppose.

    Advice to Management

    Resolve the massive conflict of interest that area managers have when dealing with associates. Direct managers are given extra power, which is fine until it is wielded by people with high self interest and greed. This causes a great amount of dissent among your front line folks who just want to earn a living stress free.
