I applied online and the process took 2 months - interviewed at The Zappos Family in May 2012.
Interview Details – Applied online through the careers section of the website. A few days later I was contacted by HR to complete a profile and application on jobvite and after that was asked to do a personality assessment. A few weeks later I was asked to complete a 1 hour skills assessment in Excel. The recruiter emailed me a spreadsheet with 10 inputs and asked to model a 5 year income statement. Key concepts include: cost of goods sold, returned products, straight line depreciation, operating expenses, and overhead. Then a cash flows statement, net sales per sq ft and finally net present value (NPV). So definitely brush up on your Accounting 1&2. The second part of the excel test is a data test where I was asked to do a vlookup and create a pivot table. I did well enough on the skills assessment so my HR recruiter called me to talk a little bit about myself. It was a 15 minute phone conversation covering some details about my resume and she asked me some questions about why I was interested to work for Zappos. From there, she said should would forward my resume to the hiring manager. A week later, I was emailed that I was not selected to move forward. I was told that based on my background and experience, the team felt I was not a close enough match for the position. This process took about 2 months. Salary range 38-48k.
