Typically, catching Z’s at work is frowned upon, but if you are the next Snoozetern, it’s part of the job! Here are a few of the things that will be required of you during your internship:

  • Test out our beds and create written and video reviews for our social platforms and MattressFirm.com
  • Create regular video content about your Snoozetern experience for Mattress Firm’s social platforms
  • Host Facebook Live events to give sleep tips and share your favorite products
  • Capture Insta-worthy photos around BEDQuarters for our social platforms
  • Interview Mattress Firm employees to get sleep tips and tricks from the best, and share these tips through video and blog content
  • Create video content interviewing Houston locals about their sleep habits
  • Attend Mattress Firm events and capture photo/video content


  • This is a paid internship requiring 30 hr/week commitment
  • Specific hourly schedule can be determined based on your availability within the work week
  • You’ll come to work at BEDQuarters in Houston, but will also have a chance to visit local Mattress Firm locations


If your greatest skills include sleeping in, constant napping, and a passion for a good night’s rest, we have the internship for you.

  • 18 years of age or older
  • Proficient in napping, regardless of time of day
  • Interested in exposure to different surfaces, textures and sleep positions
