Networking


Downers

Before the internship began, I was a bit lost to where I was supposed to show up.


Advice to Potential Interns

At first sales seems an unsure field for compensation, but Mattress Firm is more than just sales, it's a community who anyone in the Firm including the founder will answer their cell phone to help you.


Advice to Management

Compensation is good, but if one is part time it's not that great since we're in an overflow system and only get paid barley above minimum wage. Working part time else where you can be compensated more, the full time workers are taken care of well but one shouldn't ignore pay of part timers.

Advice to Potential Interns

This program offers a great sysopsis of how the retail world works. Whether you decide to go this rout after graduation or not, this company offers you every opportunity for personal growth and development.


Advice to Management

They have been doing a better job addressing this over recent years, but the amount of extended hours during every holiday can be downsized. If someone wants to do business with our company, the will come during normal operational hours.

AWESOME
2012 | VERIFIED INTERN


Uppers

Learning about the company culture, having people in your district that are there to help you succeed in the business. Constant motivation from everyone to perform well. Was paid well. Not stressful. Fun.


Downers

Longer hours during holidays.


Advice to Potential Interns

If a candidate wants to be apart of a company that has an amazing culture to be apart of, as well as learning about how to manage your own store and getting paid well, then I would highly recommend to give Mattress Firm a try!


Advice to Management

Perhaps increase the topline commissions % for part-time. It could sometimes be discouraging when you sell a $10,000 deal, only to get X amount, when it could have been so much higher as a full-time.


Would You Recommend

Yes

Uppers

The company culture, the opportunity for advancement and our fantastic training program were the three things I loved the most about my internship. I could not wait to graduate from college to join Mattress Firm full-time. There were so many people that mentored me and wanted to help me succeed.


Downers

The retail hours were a bit of an adjustment, especially during holidays.


Advice to Potential Interns

We have a fantastic company culture, we enjoy spending time giving back to our local communities and we love what we do. If you have the drive to succeed and the willingness work hard, you will love all the great things Mattress Firm has to offer!


Advice to Management

The policies surrounding the hours worked and the days off around holidays can be a major adjustment for anyone without a retail background. I would recommend telling potential candidates about this upfront. The pros of working with Mattress Firm far outweigh the hours, though!
