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."
