  4. "Store manager"

    Former Employee - Anonymous Employee 

    I worked at Sleep Outfitters

    Pros

    Good money on high dollar beds

    Cons

    Everything. Drama in the workplace, no communication from higher ups, the hours are long and boring, expectations set my upper management are ridiculous, delivery team is a joke!

    Advice to Management

    Get it together! Keep the employees that make you money and lose the mediocre ones.

    I have been working at Sleep Outfitters full-time for more than a year

    Pros

    Relaxed environment; non-pressured sales.

    Cons

    Work/life balance is non existent. Retention is a constant issue. I have been with the company for two and a half years and not once in that period have we been fully staffed for more than a few weeks.

    Advice to Management

    Step up your hiring game. Reintroduce middle management. Put more emphasis on retention and training of new hires.

    I worked at Sleep Outfitters full-time for more than 3 years

    Pros

    Lots of alone time with very little politics. Maybe a good stepping stone if you can tolerate the hours. Job security if you can sell and a great discount on beds.

    Cons

    Long and increasingly long hours accompanied low and increasingly lower pay. You will work 50-60 hours per week. The pay stucture will change so that you earn less and it will change often. High turnover and weekly schedule changes. Almost impossible to plan for an event outside of work. Weekend meetings at a minimum of once a month that will probably be an hour a way and more than likely on a day you planned having...

    Advice to Management

    Stop opening new stores and focus on the ones in established markets. The experienced salespeople are the greatest asset the company has/had. Talent is hemoraghing for good reason.

    I worked at Sleep Outfitters full-time for more than a year

    Pros

    Work all the hours you want, and don't want. Lots of down time, really might not be bad if you're in school, as long as you don't need time to actually go to a class Insurance is ok You can probably get to a manager position quickly, as people are always leaving, even from some of the better stores to be at. The job itself is really laid back, and as long as you aren't causing problems you'll probably be left...

    Cons

    I'll start from the beginning, my first boss, [Boss 1], hired me in as a Retail Sales Associate at store 4Z in Owensboro, District 16. I was promoted from RSA to store manager in about 2 months time. Right off the bat the hours were long, 10am-8:30pm most days, and 6 days working a week happened often, this was due to a staffing issue that never got resolved in my 1 year and 3 months with the company. A few months after...

    Advice to Management

    Only advice I have that I don't know you've heard before, is to staff existing stores before opening new ones. I don't know if you're aware, but stores being dark is not an uncommon thing.

    I have been working at Sleep Outfitters full-time for less than a year

    Pros

    We have a great upper management. They care about our success and work with us to succeed. We have training that allow us to stay current on our products. If you are willing to work and network you can make a good living and have fun selling sleep!

    Cons

    Would like to have more aggressive targeted marketing for the Middle Tennessee market.

    Advice to Management

    Thank you for all you do for us!

    I worked at Sleep Outfitters full-time for less than a year

    Pros

    Good products, not hard to sell mattresses. You work by yourself a lot which some people like. They advertise a lot on tv and radio

    Cons

    Poor management from the owner down, poor ethics, lies to employees, terrible pay scale that changes with each gust of wind. No work life balance. The worst place to sell or buy a mattress in America. Was offered Store Manager position 3 months in but the store was an hour from home. Add 11 hour days and pointless meetings at random locations and you're talking 50 plus hour weeks with no guaranteed money and no way to...
