Get paid to sleep? Mattress Firm is hiring for just that

'Snoozetern' to do in-house bed testing

By Dawn Jorgenson - Graham Media Group

If we haven’t all said it, surely we’ve all thought it: It would be so dreamy to get paid to sleep. Well, now’s your chance.

Mattress Firm has announced it is looking for its first “snoozetern” to be an in-house bed tester, testing the best of the best of its mattresses — and getting paid for it.

As if that doesn’t sound awesome enough, the company is also specifically looking to find someone who can test head and footing positions on certain mattresses for optimal Netflix binging, reading, social media perusing and the like.

You’ll also want to investigate which pillow looks best in your morning selfie — er, which makes you feeling the freshest upon waking from your slumber.

And, of course, applying isn't your run-of-the-mill process either. Applicants are encouraged to submit a video spelling out why they would be the best snoozetern. The final applicants' videos will get voted on by Matress Firm's Instagram followers (no pressure).

“We are excited to hire our first ever Snoozetern,” said Scott Thaler, Matress Firm's chief marketing officer, said. “It’s not every day that an intern is hired to sleep on the job, but that’s just one of many perks.”

The job (I use that term incredibly loosely) is based at the company's BEDQuarters in Houston.
