Got a Knack for Napping? Sleepy's Snooze Director Position May Be the Job for You

Mattress Retailer Offers College Students and Recent Grads Unique Opportunity to Get Paid for "Lying Down on the Job"

NEW YORK, NY--(Marketwired - May 14, 2013) - Today, Sleepy's, the Mattress Professionals, announces a search to fill what may be the industry's "cushiest" job -- "Snooze Director." As the job market remains difficult for The Class of 2013, at least one lucky applicant has the opportunity to land the job of their dreams.

The Snooze Director will be responsible for testing mattresses in Sleepy's stores, supporting Sleepy's social media efforts, researching sleep-related matters, blogging about sleep trends, and vlogging various sleep positions. In addition to being creative and enthusiastic about sleep, qualified candidates must have at least 18 years of sleeping experience.

"We're looking for self-motivated sleepers who can provide valuable insight on getting the best possible shut-eye," said Adam Blank, Sleepy's Chief Operating Officer. "College students and recent grads are expert nappers and sleepers, yet their lifestyles don't always allow them to get as much quality sleep as they need. We'd like to give this job opportunity to someone passionate about the importance of sleep."

How to Apply
Applicants can show off their slumber skills by uploading a video or traditional resume after which the most qualified will come to a Sleepy's store to demonstrate their sleep savvy. The new Snooze Director will begin the full-time job in early June when they report to Sleepy's corporate headquarters in Hicksville. Sleepy's is looking to put this search to bed as soon as possible, so beginning today, the really restful can check out the job posting and apply by uploading resumes and videos. Submissions should be accompanied by a brief description highlighting their qualifications as an expert in all things sleep-related. At the conclusion of the search, Sleepy's will offer the most qualified candidate the opportunity to sleep on the job.
