    Application Details

    I applied online – interviewed at The Zappos Family in March 2014.

    Interview Details

    I applied online, then received an email to complete the video interview. The next stage was a culture fit phone interview with the recruiter. Next I had a phone interview with my potential manager. After that I skyped with two potential team members. Then I was asked to compete a skills test in excel. After all that they offered to fly me out to their headquarters in Las Vegas for an all-day interview (Zappos paid for all my transportation and lodging, it was so great)! While there I took a tour of the office, had another culture fit interview with another recruiter. I also had 2 other interviews with potential co-workers. Two people from my department took me out to lunch and gave me the scoop on what it is like to work there. I then had an interview with a colleague who held similar responsibilities to the role I was interviewing for. Then I met with my manager and the 2 team members I skyped with previously. It was a full, busy, magical day. A few days later I was asked for information to complete a background check, and after it cleared they made me a final offer.

    Application Details

    I applied online. The process took 4+ monthsinterviewed at The Zappos Family in March 2014.

    Interview Details

    The interview process mirrors Zappos itself - disorganized and chaotic with a lot of promise. There wasn't much coordination of the process/interview day and many of the interviews covered the same ground. Interview sessions that got into actual work were much more productive. The whole process is very long - ostensibly b/c they are "really getting to know you" but really just big gaps of no communication and a process clearly hindered by bureaucracy. However, many people who I met during the interview process transcended all that and confirmed Zappos was a place I wanted to work.

    Interview Questions
    • The most difficult questions were ones where the interviewer had a very specific answer in mind rather than seeking to understand the candidate's overall approach and thinking.   Answer Question
    Negotiation Details
    Zappos salaries are below market, and there isn't much getting around that. However, there is some flexibility in signing bonus and relo costs.

    Application Details

    I applied online. The process took 4 weeksinterviewed at The Zappos Family in February 2014.

    Interview Details

    I received an e-mail notification couple days after the application. The e-mail asked me to fill out a questionnaire as the second step. The questions were about my experience as a Technology Project Manager. After the submission of the questionnaire, I received another e-mail and was scheduled to have a phone interview with one of the Technical Recruiters. The interview was for them to see if you fit the culture of the company and to know more about where you came from. After the interview with the Technical Recruiter, I was told that I won't be advanced to the next step but I asked question during the interview and knew that there will be another phone interview with the manager of this position and a homework exercise about project management. After all these, there will be on-site interview.
