Applying for a Job

We know applying for any job can be daunting, challenging, and frustrating at times. We want you to have a better experience than that. To keep things running smoothly, we have real people reviewing resumes and making decisions. We’ve outlined our process below – that way you know what’s going on every step of the way.

1

How to Apply

It’s simple. When you find a position on our careers site, click “Apply now”! The site will ask you to create an account first. You’ll be able to fill out your profile (which includes uploading your resume and adding personal information, education, and work history). The final step will be completing the job-specific application. Then you’re done!

2

What Happens Next

We care about making quality hires over quick hires. While each position is different, we typically receive about 100 applications per position and we review every one of them. Most positions are filled within 60 days, although increased volume or other circumstances can affect that timeframe.

Check Your Status

We make it easy to check your application status. Simply click here, sign in to your account, click on “Job Management,” and then you’ll see a list of your applications and their statuses.

Interviews

If your application is selected to move beyond initial review, a Talent Advisor will reach out to you to schedule an introductory interview, typically conducted over the phone and with a hiring manager.

We select our top candidates for on-site interviews. For more senior-level positions, or when multiple stakeholders are involved, additional interviews may be required. If we ask for a follow-up interview, it likely means you stood out to us! After a final interview, we typically follow up with calls to your references and previous managers, as well as possible background and credit checks.

Offer

If you’re the one, we’ll make you an offer and we hope you’ll say yes! If you’re not, don’t get discouraged. Our hiring needs are always changing, and we post new positions on our careers site each week.

FAQ

Our company is only as good as its people. That’s why we go to great lengths to hire the very best.

Do you have open positions other than those on your company website?

Yes. We currently list Corporate salaried and hourly positions as well as key branch positions on our site, but Leggett & Platt has a global family of over 130 branches that post and hire independently.

Can I apply to more than one position?

Absolutely. We encourage you to apply to any positions that meet your work experience, qualifications, and interests.

What is Leggett’s company culture like?

Looking back over 130 years, our leaders displayed certain common qualities, no matter what the business challenge of the era. When we distilled this “Leggett DNA,” we found eight key qualities that drive our collective success. Eureka! These characteristics, expressed as actions, reflect our culture and the way we lead.

How are final interviews structured?

While each of our interviews can be slightly different, all are conversational and typically take 1-3 hours, where the point is for us to get to know each other. You’ll be joined by a Talent Advisor and hiring manager(s) who will walk through your education and work history in a chronological format.
