Mattress retailer to hire about 50 veterans

Sit 'n Sleep and the California Department of Veterans Affairs have teamed up to provide veterans with jobs at Southern California stores, the mattress retailer announced this week.

Stores in Costa Mesa, Santa Ana, Anaheim and Laguna Hills will be among the locations hiring clerical, sales and warehouse positions, according to a news release.

In all, about 50 positions will be filled by veterans across Southern California.

"We strive to give back to the veterans who have given so much for us and help provide a job to return to after so bravely serving our country," said Larry Miller, chairman and executive officer of the Gardena-based Sit 'n Sleep. "Offering veterans employment is smart, as they have been trained to be great team members, which is the cornerstone of what we look for in new Sit 'n Sleep associates. If every employer welcomed a few of the troops home with a job offer, it would go a long way in thanking them for their sacrifices."

Veterans can apply for the positions at the career tab on the Sit 'n Sleep website,
