Sit 'n Sleep Careers
SIT 'N SLEEP OVERVIEW
From the time of it’s humble beginnings in the early 1980’s as a futon and mattress store in Culver City, CA, Sit ‘n Sleep has been a company about dreams…the dream of a father and son team to turn a struggling business into a successful business; the dream of son, Larry Miller, to be able to provide opportunities for the employees of his company to realize their full potential and highest levels of success; the dream to be able to give back to the Southern California communities in which the company does business.
Knowing that a business is nothing without its customers, Sit ‘n Sleep keeps in mind the dreams of mattress-buying consumers to be able to find all the options available to them in one location…Sit ‘n Sleep, Your Mattress Superstore . Sit ‘n Sleep places the highest priority on exceeding our customers’ expectations of quality products, guaranteed low prices, and outstanding, professional service.
Today, Sit ‘n Sleep is recognized as the finest specialty sleep shop in the United States, with the industry’s best sales staff. We have also become known to Southern Californians as the place to buy a mattress, with the help of Larry and Irwin and their memorable messages across radio and television airwaves of “You’re killing me, Larry!” and “We’ll beat any advertised price, or your mattress is FREEEE!”
At Sit ‘n Sleep, the fulfillment of one dream lends itself to three more, and the journey continues. With 37 superstore locations (and counting) throughout Southern California, and a 240,000 square foot distribution center and corporate office space in Gardena, CA, employing over 200 people, we continue to dream bigger dreams for our company, our people, and our customers. We continue to search out the very best products to help our customers fulfill their dreams of restful, healthful sleep. We continue to recruit and train the very best associates. We listen to our customers and always look for ways to provide the very best service. In fact, every Sit ‘n Sleep employee is committed to doing their job in such a way that our customers are happy to have done business with us.
With the addition of our online store, we bring our customers Bedding That Fits ™. Our goal is to match our expertise and knowledge of mattresses with our understanding of how frustrating it can be for our customers to find bedding that provides both fit and style. We intend to become the preferred source of luxury bedding at the right price that fits “your mattress and your style”. Our hope is to help our customers create a bedroom that is a refuge from the stresses of daily life and to help them enjoy sweet dreams of their own.

As of 12/30/2015, California state law requires retailers to collect an $11 recycling fee on each mattress and each box spring sold. (I.E. A recycling fee of $22 must be assessed for the purchase of one mattress with one box spring.) The amount of the fee was mandated by the state and is not set by individual retailers.
