Background Information

Our first bed superstore commenced trading July 2001. Our format is based on large stores, usually with a warehouse, that allow customers to take their bed away today. The combination of wide choice, stock on the premises and industry best sales advice and service has proved hugely successful, and this success is allowing us to open stores across Scotland.

A typical store has 2 to 3 sales consultants and a warehouseman. Apart from usual shop duties, the shop staff order direct from our suppliers, warehouse on site and manage the delivery service. In this way our customers get the fastest delivery and any customer service issues can be sorted quickly and efficiently.

The warehouse positions involve heavy lifting, but there is also some customer contact and a significant amount of administration.

We employ staff from all walks of life and we look for both experienced and inexperienced new people. Whatever your background we set up an individual personal training plan that includes industry specific training, general training in sales and also customer service.

We want you to take charge of your own development and we guide you to the end goal to become a professional, comfortable with your environment and enjoying the challenges we throw at you.

We understand when we ask you for an interview, you also need to find out about us. We would encourage you to visit our stores and talk to our staff, normal courtesies prevailing - we have our busy moments. However because of the unplanned disruption it causes we ask you not to phone.

Our sales consultants earn between £20k and £25k pa and our warehousemen £15.5k pa. After one years service you will be eligible to join the Company Pension Scheme. All sales staff must work weekends and bank holidays.
