Forklift Operator/Assembler (Current Employee) – Grovetown, GA – 27 December 2016
Every day as a team we complete a daily schedule. We know what is expected of us, and we are giving all the tools to compete our job successfully. We have a timed schedule, but we can not leave until all task are completed. We lack a learning environment because once you learn your task it becomes repetitive. I don't see my manager often because we have shift leaders. Their Job consist of managing our team and making sure we know exactly what our numbers are for the day. They also make sure that we are doing our task in a safe manner. My coworkers are welcoming and helpful. The hardest part of my job is not being able to leave until all task are complete. Another difficulty is that we never have a set schedule. On a more positive note, the most enjoyable part of my job is knowing what is expected of me and having all the tools I need to complete them.
They are still trying to figure out how they want to lead the company. They have definitely made a lot of changes for the good recently, and the company is now making a turn for the better. Give them a chance, and when they get everything figured out, they will remember you.
Hybrid Sales Representative (Former Employee) – Atlanta, GA – 21 November 2015
Four year career ended due to corporate restructure. Unfortunate to lose my position based on merits other than performance. Stepped into new industry and learned the product and Serta environment very quickly. Top performer in region 2 of 4 years. Great Sales Manager as well as business associates. It was a great four years unfortunate it ended so soon.
Staging/Shipping (Former Employee) – Clear Lake, IA – 11 September 2015
I had the opportunity to choose between most of the jobs available and settled on staging in the shipping department. Our work day started at the same time every day and we were able to leave as soon as our orders were done for the day. Sure, some days were longer than others, but we rarely worked weekends. And the pay was great with quick advancement for raises. We also received a discounted price on products which was pretty cool.
quilter (Former Employee) – Clear Lake, IA – 19 February 2015
Worked for Clear Lake facility for 2.5 years...applied for several positions to move up within the company only to be turned down and they hire outside help with less experience and education than I have...this facility is headed by corporate personnel because no one will work here and they are severely DECEPTIVE! Violating laws and lie all the time...get ready for months of 16 hr days! Very unsafe and hostile work environment with under qualified management that will throw you under the bus at any moment.
General Accounting Manager (Current Employee) – Beloit, WI – 11 January 2015
Great company to work for. The only reason for looking for a new position is my position is being eliminated. Looking to move Tennessee to be closer to my family after living in Wisconsin for 12 years.
I started working as a plant accountant in the Cullman, Alabama facility then transferred to the Beloit, Wisconsin facility as the General Accounting Manager. I have supervised the accounts payable, accounts receivable, staff accountant and hourly payroll. I have also been responsible for the Human Resources for the Beloit facility. I am responsible for the monthly financials and the year end audit work.
Production Supervisor (Former Employee) – Lancaster PA – 4 January 2015
Most unprofessional company I have ever worked for, management is very unprofessional. No training provided for almost everything you do. Long hours (11-13 + hour days), you come to work and never know what time you will go home, if people call off or materials don't show up on time you just stay longer, that's the company solution. Nothing was accurate, they will tell you whatever you want to hear to get you there, then once you get there the truth comes out. Do not consider to work here if you want a life.
Customer Service/Order Entry (Current Employee) – Moreno Valley, CA – 10 September 2014
great hours very flexible. Over time was always available. The co-workers were great, the management was good as well. The hardest part was the distance and the most enjoyable was the motivating work enviroment.
Production Supervisor (Former Employee) – Puyallup – 26 August 2014
The hours were said in the interview as 9-10 hours with an occasional 12 hour day. No Saturday work. It was also said the training would be great and I would get an opportunity to work with some of the best employees they had in order to get the knowledge needed to run a department effectively. It was also said the Plant Manager was a good person who didn't micro-manage.
They LIED on ALL of it!
The Plant Manager was the worst micro manager ever! Not only that but he would go into your department and purposefully stir up stuff just to see how you'd handle it. I never received any training until the day they were going to let me go and I told them what a terrible place to work this was. The Plant manager would say he knew how to complete a KAIZEN but when it came down to doing the actual KAIZEN he would change the scope and the objective half way through the project. He didn't understand what Lean Manufacturing was really all about. He would yell and scream at his employees in front of everyone and would reprimand his supervisors in front of the employees as well.
Absolutely the worst place to work ever! Harassing environment and definitely a threatening Plant Manager in power as a dictator!
I will never work for or with any Serta Company ever again!!
Checks never bounced

Director of Sales and Marketing (Former Employee) – Des Plaines, IL – 15 March 2014
the company moved to St. Louis; I had no desire to move to St. Louis since my family is here in Chicago.
I began as a sales representative with Sealy and moved up the ladder to Sales Manager; Serta recruited me to the position of Director. Our sales increased 21%because we educated the retail sales force and always made sure we had prominent space on the retail floor.
the position gave me an opportunity to use my selling skills
Shipping Coordinator (Former Employee) – Grovetown GA – 7 March 2014
I am a former employee & got fired after coming off of vacation. I was accused of something that I wasn't aware of & management is clueless, shows favoritism, and in my opinion home office really needs to come down here & clean house starting with the plant manager, shipping supervisor, scheduler. I would advise you not to take a position with this company no matter what they promise you. Please be aware when looking at this company for employment.
Bad management. favoritism, clueless & classless people
