Team Member (Former Employee) – Auburn, WA – May 18, 2018
Zones is really good about talking the talk on how they have a business full of professional leaders. But what they don't do is make sure management walks the walk. Upper management does not hold lower management accountable for their actions, nor do they make sure it is a safe place for members and support groups to share their ideas and opinions without being criticized or reprimanded . Hostile work environments even when reported to HR are overlooked and the team member who reports it is actually disciplined.
Own your Zone... Just don't express it unless it matches up with what management wants
Account Executive/Technology Sales (Former Employee) – Chicago, IL – April 9, 2018
i dont want to write this review but since you guys are forcing me and it wasnt the best experience here it goes. zones was trying to break into a tech market that they just couldnt break into. they made it worse by making their office only a public sector office. the sales floor was very cliquey, and very unprofessional.
Networking and Security Inside Solution Architect (Current Employee) – Kansas City, MO – March 30, 2018
working at Zones there were too many changes to the ways we do things causing you to adapt again and again. Zones also reserves the right to change your pay structure whenever they want so you never know how much you will make. They also pull accounts from experienced reps causing them to partly start over with their book. Its a very volatile work environment.
being laid off from Zones inc is just a worst thing that happend to me.
Assist Finance (Former Employee) – Auburn, WA – February 26, 2018
everything was going ok and I love my boss, but once a new higher boss came in the company he decided to laid off 30 employees. we were not secured. It was a very hurtful situation for any person to work for a company, and I was very committed and hard working person.
Integration Lab Tech (Former Employee) – Carol Stream, IL – February 12, 2018
5% IT 95% Re-Packaging. Good starter job for high school or college graduates pursuing IT occupation. Turn over rate is high. Temp turn over rate even higher. Work force is increased or decreased at will based on sales and work load. Documented standard operating procedures are poor therefore information is tribal. New employees must shadow an existing employee to learn as much as possible. Smoke breaks and break times are unsupervised. Be prepared to repeat yourself because everyone has headphones or earbuds, as work is repetitive. Get in, do your job, get paid, get out..
IT Technician (Current Employee) – Carol Stream, IL – January 28, 2018
Upper management calls me in when theres no work I open the door and the other supervisor asks me why i'm even here. That's a good question, I ask myself that everyday. They do NOT respect your personal time. They WILL be rude to you. They do NOT say THANKS. They have "Employee events" to make it seem like their being nice but its just a tax write off. Under no circumstance should you go out of your way for this company they will not appreciate it. Management does not communicate effectively. They constantly walk around looking for things because they cant find them. Firing people constantly that don't deserve it. Temps are treated poorly. Try treating me bad see what happens.
Solutions Architect (Current Employee) – Seattle, WA – January 23, 2018
Zones was a very delightful place to work in the beginning. You were provided tons of training and was looked upon as a valued individual contributor. There was a lot of freedom and flexibility given to remote office workers. Things changed when Zones acquired another company a year ago to handle the professional services division. Leadership and direction from this new management has been very minimal which has caused many long time employees to wonder about their future longevity here.
Inside Account Executive (Current Employee) – Portland, OR – January 22, 2018
A good work environment with friendly people. A great place to get your feet wet in the IT industry and make a good paycheck at the same time. A good place to start a working/corporate career and build our resume.
Hardware / Software Configuration Technician (Former Employee) – Carol Stream, IL – January 21, 2018
Had a great supervisor, very helpful and supportive. The best supervisor that I ever had! Too bad I'm not allowed to mention their name! The configuration lab did start a product tracking system to measure productivity which was needed to ensure that product was configured and sent out to the customers in a timely fashion. Decide if it is important to you to have your metrics under constant scrutiny, it could depend on your work style and how much stress that you wish to tolerate!
some free lunches or dinners depending on what shift you were on, very helpful supervisors and co-workers!
when times were slow, it was hard to "look busy" workflow could have been better!
Senior Field Engineer (Former Employee) – Auburn, WA – January 18, 2018
Productive Place to Work.
Was able to get trained to advanced in current role in Physical Security. The job was very challenging each and every day. Was able to work closely with all vendors that support the Physical Security industry.
Enterprise Account Manager (Current Employee) – Atlanta, GA – January 17, 2018
Long hours, account management with limited support from local sales ASM. Hard to determine company culture since I was a remote sales executive. Lots of turn over within the region because of poor middle management.
Nice first time job for students entering workforce/IT Sales
Account Executive (Current Employee) – Chicago, IL – January 14, 2018
Management has no clue what they are doing. A typical good 'ol boys culture. Super low paying and have an '80's style micromanagement bent. All sales management are more concerned about managing up rather than managing their direct reports or even understanding what their direct reports do.
None/would not recommend to anyone but a first timer
