    The intern, who will be based at Mattress Firm's headquarters in Houston, will be responsible for testing beds, creating written and video reviews for the store's website, offering sleeping tips on Facebook Live streams and generating videos that highlight Houston residents' sleeping habits.

    "We are excited to hire our first ever Snoozetern," said Chief Marketing Officer Scott Thaler in a news release. "It's not every day that an intern is hired to sleep on the job, but that's just one of many perks."
