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 – more... 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. – less

Production Supervisor (Former Employee), Lancaster PA – January 4, 2015
Pros: steady pay check
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 – more... 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. – less
Customer Service/Order Entry (Current Employee), Moreno Valley, CA – September 10, 2014
Pros: motivated work enviroment
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 – August 26, 2014
Pros: checks never bounced
Cons: leadership, culture, labor force, management or lack of management, time management, scheduling, planning, and hr
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 – more... 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!! – less
Director of Sales and Marketing (Former Employee), Des Plaines, IL – March 15, 2014
Pros: the position gave me an opportunity to use my selling skills
Cons: company moved to st. louis
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.
Shipping Coordinator (Former Employee), Grovetown GA – March 7, 2014
Cons: bad management. favoritism, clueless & classless people
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 – more... 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. – less
Box-spring/ Shipping Supervisor (Former Employee), Falconer, NY – February 17, 2014
I worked from 7-finish, mainly Mon-Fri, some Sat., with 30 employees in 2 departments; shipping and boxspring. I learned how to prioritize quickly because of multiple issues popping up simultaneously thoughout – more... the day. Most coworkers were enjoyable to work with. The hardest part of the job was the multitasking between sewing, upholstery, loading, and logistics. The most enjoyable part of the job was the people and accomplishing the hardest parts every day. – less

Ruffler (Former Employee), Puyallup, WA – August 8, 2013
Pros: easy work
Cons: short breaks, non-understanding management, very long hours for a pregnant woman
The not knowing what your schedule will be everyday was the worst part of the job, too long of hours for a pregnant woman to be on my feet for 10+ hours, with a non understanding management people that are like slave drivers with ego trips!!!! But other than that the work itself was easy.
