Sales Manager Trainee
Wisconsin, Madison

About: Part of the Furniture Row family of companies, Denver Mattress was born out of the waterbed boom of the 1980's and began producing soft-sided waterbed inserts for Big Sur Waterbeds in 1988. Adapting as the waterbed wave receded, Denver Mattress began producing innerspring mattresses for the Kidz Beds® line in 1992 and shortly thereafter began producing full-line conventional adult size bedding to compliment the bedroom sets being sold through Oak Express. In April, 1995 Denver Mattress opened the first Denver Mattress store in Denver, CO. and has since expanded to become one of the largest privately held mattress company in the United States with over 90 locations in 30 states.
