Productive workplace focused on developing happiness
Style Editor (Former Employee), Las Vegas, NV – February 21, 2014
Pros: free lunch & snacks, great health benefits
Cons: unqualified managers, lack of employee development
I typically worked 45-50 hours per week building outfits, meeting with buyers and brands to feature ideal product for photo shoots, and working with site merchandiser to ensure timely update of site to feature new imagery.
While it is a fun company to work for, management was often times not available and often unaware of their team's jobs or how to – more... develop team members professionally.
My co-workers were great! I created many life-long friendships.
Hardest part of the job was developing myself as a stylist and creatively with no assistance or encouragement from management.
Most enjoyable part of the job were the quirky and inventive events created for the company, the charity participation and motivational speakers brought in during the all-hands meetings. – less

The team at Zappos is a serious one. They have a dedicated crew of experienced people, and they are willing to help you fit in with their team. It takes the right kind of attitude and willingness to learn, but if you are a good fit with the personalities on the team, you're destined to fall in love with working alongside these fine folks!

A typical work day would be for me to meet with our team and find out how they were doing get them excited to do what was planned for the day.The hardest part of job would be Christmas Peak due to the rush but after the feeling of success was awesome.

Customer Loyalty Representative (Former Employee), Las Vegas, NV – January 1, 2014
Pros: free lunches, awesome medical benefits
Cons: no raises, limited advancement
Worked on the live chat team so I chatted with customers and helped them with what ever their needs were. Best part of job was ability to help customers any way I could without management approval. Hardest part of job, no raises and limited advancement opportunity.
Zappos is by far one of the best companies I have ever worked for. I learned so much in working for them not only about the true meaning of customer service but just how to be an all around good person. It is the most laid back customer focused position I have ever encountered. I would love to work for them full time.
warehouse worker (Former Employee), Shepardsville, ky – November 18, 2013
Pros: free lunches, 25 cent vending, co-workers, activites during break
Cons: 10 hour shifts, short breaks, the commute
Zappos also helps you reach a level of responsibility that you may have not had before. They provided free lunches but took away the shuttle buses which helped people get back and forth. Overall they were a great company to work for. I enjoyed waking up and being employed there but the hardest part was much needed time to spend with my family. That – more... is the reason I'm looking for something much closer to town. The time I enjoyed the most would be that I could listen to music and do my own thing moving at a fast rate. – less

A typical day at Zappos was peaceful, I learned the importance of culture, teamwork, and communication. Standing on my feet may have been the hardest part of my job.

Internship (Former Employee), Las Vegas, NV – September 21, 2013
Pros: free healthy lunches, benefits, relationships, connections, communications, life lessons, wisdom, responsibility, quick and efficient
Cons: short time period of my stay
It was great to always walk into a door where people actually have open arms and say good morning to you. I learned a lot both emotionally and professionally. Personally I am in love with the company and all the employees that make the company thrive. My closest friends were my co-workers and they have always welcomed me even though I was a complete – more... stranger. Even those that didn't know me, what I gained felt like, they wanted to know me. The hardest part, though, was maintaining my creative aspect and the professionalism that overall represents the company itself. To know when to have fun and when to actually work was my trickiest part of them all. But I loved every minute of it, the fact that life had me tangled and words of wisdom from all the people I encountered helped me unravel more than what I knew myself. Thank You Zappos Family for everything! – less
