Interview Details – I had three phone interviews and then was flown out to Vegas. The trip has 2 layovers coming from the east coast- they don’t want to spend the money for a direct flight. The interview process was straight forward, met with lots of team members. They contacted me right away to offer me a DIFFERENT position than what I interviewed for at significantly less money. I was not pleased. I would not have wasted my time flying 10 hours each way for such a paltry offer (lower than I was previously told!), considering the amount of experience I bring to the table- it is buying, not cardiac surgery.
Interview Question – No difficult questions... Answer Question
Reason for Declining – The company boasts record sales, but want good talent cheap. Also, had reservations about moving all the way to Vegas, considering they have armed policeman stationed at the entrance. What does that really say about the area?

I applied through college or university and the process took 3 months - interviewed at The Zappos Family in November 2013.
Interview Details – I applied through my University recruiting website. I created a cover letter video to attempt to stand out, and that seemed to work for me. I was then directed to complete an online video interview of 8 rapidfire questions (you get 30 seconds to think and about 1 minute to answer. Then it saves and submits your video). You have to be ready for any question here, things like "If you were stranded on an island and had only 2 things, what would they be?" Also, there is an online case through the website "Mindsumo" that accompanies the hiring process. It will be specific to your position.
From there I was informed that I had received a final interview and they flew me out to Las Vegas. For two days, I met the team that you are applying to be a part of, and I got to know other company members and the Zappos campus. There is a "Culture interview" and a more professional, "position specific interview." I feel like both went very well, the culture interview had some unique personality questions like "if you could be doing anything in the world and money didn't matter, what would it be?"
No offer, but great experience. I knew it was going to be a different interview based on the culture, so I was prepared but it just didn't work out.
Interview Question – "give us 2 ways to use a brick other than for building or as a paperweight." Answer Question
