Meet Mattress Firm Intern, Sarah Gardner

“Mattress Firm has interns?!” That's generally the reaction I get when I tell guests that I'm new and interning or friends what I'm doing for the summer. Personally, when I found out about the opportunity to intern with Mattress Firm, I was surprised too. But, of course, as a college student, I did my research on the company and asked my family friend how working for the company has been. What I discovered was that Mattress Firm has won one of the best places to work in Houston, employees have empowerment (the importance of I had just learned in my marketing class), and that I'd be able to put an amazing experience on my resume.
 
 
I was ecstatic when I got the call that I got the internship. I was trying to workout in the gym, but I was too excited to tell my family about my upcoming summer to finish my workout. I practically skipped all the way home. Mattress Firm sent me a shirt and a letter representing the internship, and I must have read it a million times. Finally, it was time to move down to Houston from Waco (I attend Baylor University), and get ready to start working.
 
 
I turned 21 the day before my first day, and at dinner that next day Mattress Firm brought me a cupcake with a candle in it. That's just a testament to how much this company cares about their employees. I hadn't even begun when it was my birthday, but Mattress Firm still took the time and remembered to celebrate. I've been having a blast with this internship so far. I feel like I'm getting paid to have fun and share stories with people! I've taken a ton of pictures and made so many new friends, and I'm only halfway done with the internship.
 
 
I'm looking forward to continuing the internship program and maybe working with Mattress Firm after graduation!

  1. Once I thought about things like: why such information is for free here? Because when you write a book then at least on selling a book you get a percentage. Thank you and good luck on informing people more about it!

  14. The shoulders and hips need to “get in” to the mattress, compressing the materials just enough so that the midsection gets proper support. There should be contact on every part of your body: no gap under the midsection. latex vs memory foam

  31. Great post full of useful tips! My site is fairly new and I am also having a hard time getting my readers to leave comments. Analytics shows they are coming to the site but I have a feeling “nobody wants to be first”.
