If you are a loner, it’s perfect for you
Do you want to have a great work life balance, supportive team, and a company that is employee first? Well keep looking, this isn’t for you. Here at Mattress Firm, you are expected to miss out on every life event imaginable. Seriously unless you’re getting married, or dying, forget it. Requesting days off for a doctors visit was like asking for my bosses hand in marriage. Now I did make a lot of money, however I never got to enjoy it. Every holiday was a “Big Sale” that I couldn’t miss (Even ones like President’s day). When I tried to schedule a vacation for my wife’s graduation, 2 weeks before July 4th I was told, “That’s too close to our biggest sale” then I couldn’t help but notice that certain members of leadership were allowed to leave. (Even though 2 of them were bottom performers). They don’t take care of their top guns, they only care about the people who don’t make noise.
