A friendly, fun work place, but unstable company.
Pros: friendly, motivating work environment. high energy enthusiastic managment.
Cons: financialy unsecure, unreliable payroll and benefits.
Mattress World was a small, localy owned retail chain. The work was fast paced and energetic, but thanks to the family environment, a lot of fun to work there. The job was very self motivating, and taught proactive thinking to promote business and build customer relationships. All of the management staff were promoted from the sales staff, so they understood the job from all levels and were fair and realistic in thier expectations.
The compnay faced serious financial difficulties, and this caused a loss of benefits, as well as missed payrolls on more than a few occasions. Eventualy, in Dec. 2011, this put Mattress World Inc. Out of business.
