Success of Sleep Train in San Mateo Leads to Hiring Spree

Sleep Train is looking to hire 40 employees for two to three more stores in the Bay Area, thanks in part to its success in San Mateo.

A sales growth in Sleep Train's newly opened stores in San Mateo and Napa has prompted the comapny's search for 40 new employees in the Bay Area.

Sleep Train is preparing to open an additional two or three locations in the region by the year's end, after finding success in selling mattress and other related products in San Mateo and Napa.

“Our business is booming in this market, driving the demand for a larger sales staff in existing stores as well as new sales people for additional new store locations,” Matt Anderson, vice president of training and development at Sleep Train, said in a statement.

“We’re excited to be growing our employee-owned team and are looking for individuals who wish to be part of a motivated, talented team and fun, thriving company,” he said. 

Sleep Train offers new employee-owners an extensive five-week training program, comprehensive benefits, and an emphasis on corporate philanthropy with paid-time for volunteering.

Those hired can look forward to participation in the company’s employee stock ownership program after 12 months of employment and rapid advancement with the chance to attend an annual leadership retreat.

Interested candidates can submit applications through October 5, 2012 on Sleep Train’s website: http://www.sleeptrain.com/careers.aspx, or apply in-person at the Sleep Train San Leandro store open house on Thursday, August 30th from 10 a.m. to 6 pm. The San Leandro Sleep Train is located at 15099 Hesperian Boulevard.

Sleep Train currently has more than 685 employee-owners and 100 locations throughout California. For more information, please visit www.sleeptrain.com or find Sleep Train on Facebook atwww.Facebook.com/sleeptrain
