Thoughts as an intern:
When looking for the place to work regardless of full-time, part-time, or intern position most people overlook the bigger picture: finding a company that feels like a family. If you are looking for a new job make sure you understand and agree with the companies values and culture.
Mattress Firm gives back and is big on community involvement. Contributing over 800 hours to the community. Mattress Firm is big on growth we are trying to be a coast-to-coast retailer and with that there are many opportunities for the internal guest (the employees) to grow; we are almost coast-to-coast! Mattress Firm is all about hiring passionate individuals, in part because of the need for great culture and brand that Mattress Firm, as well as, looking to fill those new positions with knowledgeable and enthusiastic people. Mattress Firm is not only a brand/company but it is a big family.
I can truly say here at Mattress Firm, that I have gained not only new friends, but a family within the almost 3 weeks I have been here. Through the relationships with the interns I came in with or the full-time staff I have built relationships that are sure to last the test of time.
I have learned that Mattress Firm believes in their people and does everything to put them in the best position as internal guests. Throughout the Manager Interview process I have found many managers love the ability to be able to help others ,as well as, having the ability to act on their own; being leaders not order takers.
Anyone with a great attitude, sales aptitude, or even the ability to learn should come and learn more about what it means to be with a great family!
