    Pros

    A lot of good people work here. I've personally had a lot of opportunities to learn and gain new skill sets.

    Cons

    At times communication can be lacking between departments. The company sometimes makes desperate moves when sales are down- they can be good in the short term but have negative consequences in the long term. They seem to be doing this less over the last year though. There has consistently been a reorganization every September/October since 2012.

    Awesome pay, medical, dental, vacation, investment and sign on bonus

    HR and Key leaders have that good old boys mentality. Work condition in no air condition old factory that has multiple structural challenges and many employees are related so one might not fit in if not from geo-area.

    Pros

    paycheck? Can't say that I have much positive to say about Tempur Sealy at this point

    Cons

    Toxic Environment, poor leadership is leadership can even be use in this context. People thrive on pointing out the flaws in other to elevated their own status. Constant lying and blaming of others. No one takes ownership or responsibility for their own actions let alone the function of their actual job. By far the worst experience I have ever had in my working career. Completely demoralizing, horrible supervisors will thrive here. Good supervisors will become back supervisors, because its the only way to survive until you can move on

    Advice to Management

    Look at what you are actually instilling in employees, for the top down. .....
    Leaders who do not listen soon have employees that stop talking.....Listen and actually make changes

    I worked at Tempur Sealy International (Less than a year)

    Pros

    Good pay and benefits. Strong culture among current employees. Off peak season hours are greatly reduced compared to peak season.

    Cons

    Highly demanding during peak season including Saturday work and fifteen plus hour days. Managerial decisions are ambiguous at times making job more difficult.

    Advice to Management

    Set forth goals and standards to be adhered by for general work and communicate more effectively if the standard operating procedures change or need more analysis because of results.

    Cons

    Terrible hours, Micromangement, None of the management is familiar with your work, no one in the department has been there a year, they are constantly changing your job daily, in your job interview they lie about what your job is, the management was fired from Ralph Lauren Polo and rehired at Tempur, the human resources and management team are very unprofessional they deduct your check for being late for 5 minutes and then they change it and then they have a meeting and say you can be 10 minutes late and then they write a person up for being one minute late? Also they have four people that are always late and they only wrote up one black person and not the two white ones. And when a black and white girl got in to an argument they only wrote up the black girl. The supervisor also counsel another employee while another employee was there. The manager called human resources before asking the young lady what the situation was and she was going to have the young lady reprimanded before asking the situation.

    Advice to Management

    Invest in Management classes and being classy you may decrease your turnover and get a new marketing team. Also do a better job with your training department instead of a two week training. the information is way too much, maybe get someone local that can devote the time and is note rushed to get back home to check on a dog and that is home sick. And someone that has an agenda.

    I have been working at Tempur Sealy International part-time (Less than a year)

    Pros

    When I first started I was a bit nervous going into the mattress industry. I assumed it was going to be super shady or competitive like car sales or other mattress places. It isn't like that at all we don't even get commission. It's just a really solid hourly pay with light cleaning and occasional shipments.

    It is sales, so if you like sales this is an amazing job. If you prefer retail like forever 21 where it's more folding and organizing this is going to feel difficult. But if you are sales this places (once again) amazing. The managers look at your overall trend so if you have a bad week or couple they get it. You don't really get in trouble as long as they see effort and an overall good trend.

    If it's really slow and it's overstuffed, or they randomly need you to come in last second you are guaranteed at least four hours pay which is really cool. So if you get cut at the 2 hour mark or come in to work only 1 hour you get paid for 4.

    They are super accommodating for request off and make the schedules 3 weeks in advance.

    Benefits for a part time associate

    - free Tempur-Pedic mattress (you get to choose from a selection) for new hire award
    -free Tempur-Pedic pillow (randomly selected)
    -free Tempur-Pedic slippers during winter time
    -56 hours of sick pay
    -dental benefits
    -medical benefits
    -life insurance

    When a family member died they were so ridiculously kind and helpful. I've worked at places where they try to guilt you to work your given shifts but they told me to go home and take as much time as needed. You get 5 days paid bereavement which is also a great benefit.

    Cons

    -It's retail so Saturdays and Sunday's are a given.
    -the flagship POS system could use a bit more work to make it more efficient

    Advice to Management

    IT people need to work with the stores to make the POS system more efficient

    I worked at Tempur Sealy International full-time (More than 5 years)

    Pros

    Beautiful headquarters office with in-house café, Starbucks and gym. Excellent product and employees who work hard to continue the company's success. Opportunities to work flexible schedule.

    Cons

    Poor communication between departments. Several in management roles are untrustworthy and would gladly stab others in the back to climb up the corporate ladder. Environment is often hostile. Very hard to implement improvements due to bureaucracy. Company was not prepared to integrate Sealy and is still struggling 3 years later. Executives are not concerned with pulling others up with them and showed their true selves in agreeing to cut over 140 jobs at the promise of a big bonus payout. Note that one executive did have character and took the sword himself rather than cutting any of his department.

    Advice to Management

    The company did not reach the level of success by the executives alone. Many employees put in long hours and sacrificed time with their family to get the company where it is. Executives need to come out of their high towers and realize it was on the backs of many they got where they are today. Treat those under you with more respect.
