Volusion goes out of its way to create a fun, creative workplace environment for its employees. Beer Fridays, free ice cream/snack machines, catered lunches, and the occasional food trucks are some of the many non-traditional perks. You'll also meet a lot of very great people here.
In my experience, the cons vary greatly on the department one works in. I've met folks in other departments who seem to enjoy their jobs very much. Many of the folks working in CE (tech support), however, are underpaid and have a general dislike for the position. Because of that, there are constant "fun" activities made available for them as a substitute. However, Volusion hires some great people to fill these roles.
Advice to Management
In regards to the Customer Experience department, spend less money on cheesy games and events and put that money into support wages. Many of us aren't here to play games and just want to work and go home. We're adults, after all.

- No OfferPositive ExperienceAverage Interview
I had been looking at Volusion for a while before interviewing. Multiple friends ended up working at Volusion in different departments, and they had nothing but great things to say. I instantly emailed for a phone interview. After talking more, I was brought into the offices for an interview. I was given a clipboard with technical questions, some that caught me off guard. I was becoming very nervous while rushing to finish the questions. My nerves were instantly calmed once I got to meet the team. I sat down with 3 members of the PPC department and introduced myself. Knowing people at the company was not taken into account. We began to speak about experiences in paid search and approaches to situations. By the end of the interview, we had a few laughs and I felt like I had the job. Unfortunately, they wanted to conduct more interviews before bringing me back in. During this time I was wrapping things up with another company and got into a great position. To sum it up; there are no free passes, they will evaluate you technically, speak to you with respect, and take time to decide on who they hire. Although I wanted the job, I am glad that I did not get an easy "in".
