Sleepy's Employee

"Area was run for the past 10-15 years by two master politicians. These two crooks connived, deceived, lied and manipulated many, many hard working employees and their families. They got rid of their enemies, their rivals - one by one, month by month, district by district, until they were calling the shots from the throne, just like Frank Underwood without the southern accent. These two would always get inside information way in advance from up top without passing it on so they would always have the inside track always in advance. No one really actually knew what these two actually did on a daily basis for this company besides forward emails and go to lunch. Luckily one "consigliere" is now removed from the company after the buyout, but the other still remains in a role similar to Ace Rothstein's character in Casino, where he keeps swapping job titles without being noticed. He was the worst manager I have ever seen in any company I have ever worked in. No training, no business sense, no leadership. Nothing! I cannot believe that Mattress Firm kept this person on. People were speechless! The culture was simple - Your pay and schedule depended on your relationship with bosses . Keep your mouth shut, unless your name ended in a vowel and had a position higher than a District Manger The blatant discrimination towards minority workers, and women was obvious and many employees just keep their mouths closed due to retaliation from their manager. The only way to get promoted to a better store was very easy- $ gifts to your boss or being best friends/cousins with him. You were never rewarded based on merit or success. Many left after the well dried up in 2012 and 2013. Those that are currently working were hand-picked. These people drank the kool-aid, took pay cuts and kept their lips sealed for the transition period. Auditors were fired also."

What do you like about working at Sleepy's?

"Sleepy's provides a good selection of products and prices for its customers."

Do you have any tips for others interviewing with this company?

"Their training program is excellent and worth the time. However, the job itself is slow and unrewarding---a tolerable transition job if you don't mind working 12-hour days, weekends, and holidays."

What don't you like about working at Sleepy's?

"The level of micromanagement is absurd and demeaning. The changing commission structure is making it more and more difficult to make a decent living."

What suggestions do you have for management?

"I would provide more incentives for sales people and encourage their desire to learn. I would work with salespeople to develop and improve their skills based on individual needs. I would also give regular feedback to my employees regarding their performance."

What do you like about working at Sleepy's?

"Helping people choose the proper sleep system. It validates the importance in the work we do. You're helping them to make a decision that will impact their lives... At least 1/3rd of it."

Do you have any tips for others interviewing with this company?

"Be mindful that most companies are in the business of recruiting talent. Many companies are not prepared to appreciate what you bring to the table. Be extremely objective about choosing to bring your talent to Sleepys. Do not make any plans to be appreciated beyond your last sale. Do not expect the company to commit to you as it will demand that you commit to it. Take it for what it is. Take it if you need to as you transition to where you want to be..."

What don't you like about working at Sleepy's?

"Employees are numbers. You are reminded of this repeatedly and in so many ways. Each year on average, employees at sleepys make less and less money to perform at higher levels. Sleepys has taken what used to be a best place to work in 2007 and turned it into a job for those in transition. There is a zero sense of security working at sleepys. Sleepys demands perfection from their employees yet is too inconsiderate to listen to their concerns. You work from 10am to 9pm. That's 11 hours. When you are sick, aside from them overlooking it and trying to convince you to work anyway, they pay you for only 8 hours at minimum wage..."

What suggestions do you have for management?

"I would get back to reality. Level with the people who fuel my business and give them credit where its due. Sleepy's is run by a group of ever-changing people who belive that their employees are not talented enough to give its consumers an ultimate shopping experience. Routineley, employees are repremanded for not meeting measurables and are subjected to secret shops where a person is paid no more than $10 to vist the showroom and make up reasons not to buy anything from the sales person. The desired effect is that the Mattress professional loses their mind, pretends that no person ever walks into a sleepys (any 700 of them) just to look without really intending to buy a product as they do elsewhere in society and then unleash an arsenal of creative, borderline agressive ways to convice an unsuspecting consumer or paid shopper to suddenly buy a bed or accessory. When this approach in not taken, the salesperson is repremanded and told what a bad job they've done. Terms like you failed a shop or you let them walk is then used to describe what went wrong. The bottom line is that in America, where Sleepys is owned and operated, consumers have a right to choose when and where they buy a mattress. It is rediculous to blame a salesperson for not forcing a consumer to bow down to our push to have them make a buying decision just beacuse they happen to visit a sleepys shoowroom."
