​​​​What is Brandtailing?​​​​

​​​​​​​​​​​​​Impossible Is Not Excuse​​​​​​​​​​​​​

So, you have an interest in working with us? There are certain traits that are necessary to succeed and thrive here at Zimmerman Advertising...and we need you to live and breathe our way of life.You must be willing to relentlessly push forward, no matter how big the obstacle ahead.

  • You must be willing to put our clients before our company, and even yourself.
  • You must understand that while efforts count, results count more.
  • You must drive yourself to do more than others would think possible -- and never rest once you get there.

If you can see yourself committing to these statements and you truly believe you have what it takes, then keep looking around our site...because you are exactly who we'd like to talk to.

​​​​​​​Hold Tight​​​​​​​​​​​​

​​The ride of your life starts here. Get ready to experience twists and turns that Einstein and Newton never saw coming. Get ready to hold on so tight, your knuckles will discover a new shade of white. Get ready for the ride we call Brandtailing™.​​

This is a non-stop, one-way only ticket to the frontlines of battle. The battle where your only weapons are creative ideas that cut through, media buys that break-through, and a tracking system that tears through.

Get ready to experience a whole new level of passion. The kind of passion that puts our clients at the forefront of their industries. The kind of passion that sells more cars, more pizzas, more furniture, even more season tickets. The passion it takes to increase market share.

This ride is packed with hundreds of the best marketing minds in the industry. All with that same passion. And every single one headed to the same destination – success. Success for us, our company… and more importantly, the success of our clients.

This is everyday life at Zimmerman.

We eat, sleep and live Brandtailing™!

    I worked at Zimmerman Advertising full-time (more than 3 years)


    While I did have fun at Zimmerman, the Creative that comes out of this agency is from 1990. Posters, Banners, SALE SALE SALE - "Buy One Get One FREE" LOL - Come on guys, step up. I see they have a new building, well isnt that just great. Jordan Zimmerman spending even MORE money that could be given to the employees. The Rich get Richer while they step on the bones of the working man - Maybe they got rid of the Black Mold issue and clients being stuck in the elevator. If you want to start your career with the almight Z - go ahead, then get experience and run like hell.


    I think you can see my rant on Pros -

    It was a very quick and friendly process. I interviewed with the team I would be working with on a daily basis and I feel like everyone involved was very honest, which is exactly what you should be in return. Don't be afraid to voice your opinion but just know that most positions have it built in what they should be.,
