    I have been working at Sleep Country Canada full-time

    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!

    I worked at Sleep Country Canada full-time

    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.

    Pros

Very professional and friendly, each day brings the sense of ownership at work extremely rewarding. very good benefits package including the DPSP (profit sharing) .Lot Sales people easily make 6 figure income, yes I am one of them. I will definitely recommend Sleep country to any who is looking to take their career to the next level.

    My life is so much better now that I'm working for SCC. Stress levels gone way down. I wish I would have listened earlier. Between the benefits and all the perks the company offers, to the CEO and all the upper management... love my job!!

    I have been working at Sleep Country Canada full-time (More than 10 years)

    Pros

    My favorite part of my job is that I can travel within Canada and get paid to do so. We have a booth at various trade shows in about every major city. Sleep Country flies us in, pays our hotel and food, then we work the trade shows and get paid. Of course this is only for a few of us but with hard work anyone can do it.

    Cons

    Trade shows are 4 to 10 days which suck because you are on ypur feet all day. Somedays you are so busy you cant even stop for food or washroom. But that ok because the trade off is making money but it still sucks sometimes

    Advice to Management

    They used to take us out for beer and wings after

    Pros

    Great benefits, realistic ability to make a living, job satisfaction comes from helping others

    Cons

    Work every weekend, unrealistic monthly goals, floor rules very narrow

    Advice to Management

    Allow sales staff to self manage. Every aspect of performance being scrutinized takes away from sales experience for associate as well as customer.
