Late 2014 my 3 year tenure at Sleepy's ended abruptly as it does with most Sleepy's employees sooner or later. What it comes down to is that some people are better suited to be thieves than others.
Sleepy's the self proclaimed mattress professionals claim they make the world a better place to sleep". This claim by the way couldn't be further from the truth... Here is a dirty little secret... you be the judge!
At sleepy's all salespeople essentially work on commission and all are and mandated to follow "The Sleepy's Process".
This involves establishing rapport, focusing on sleep, acting as you care, then getting customers to pay as high a price as possible. We were rated based upon highest gross margin and the best liars got the best stores and made the most money. I could sell the same mattress set to one customer at $1299.00 and another customer at $599.00. The process involved getting the customer to the desk and only if necessary make a few "credible drops".
Credible drops range from reaching into the desk and tearing a coupon from large pads in drawers in $25.00, $50.00 or $100.00 denominations depending on what you think will work.. to a fairy tale about "excess inventory" in that style. If after a few drops a customer does not buy "the process" mandates "no one walks". If you can't get customer to buy call a manager or co-worker to come up with another "credible drop".
TWELVE HUNDRED & NINETY NINE vs FIVE HUNDRED & NINETY NINE. The best *** men & liars make the most money. If lying to customers and mandating employees follow this process ,essentially encouraging grand larceny, is making the world a better place to sleep i'd like to know how. The entire process involves lies, deceit and pure evil for the sake of profit at the customers expense.
I encourage anyone to avoid any business dealings with Sleepy's and I am ashamed to have allowed myself to compromise my values during my tenure.
These are dangerous people with a New York mentality and they are professionals when it comes to taking advantage of customers and employees To date they are still allowed to operate however word is getting around fast. Be your own judge.
