"I started with Zipcar as an intern while in grad school for my MBA. After I finished school, I became a full time Brand Ambassador on the marketing team and shortly after was promoted to Marketing Coordinator. During my time as a coordinator, my main focus was growing our Zipcar for Business segment and as of February 2015, I became an Account Executive. When I took the internship, I never imagined it would turn into a career. 5 years later, I am very happy to still be with Zipcar. My managers have been amazing about helping me develop my skills, excel in my current position and prepare me to move up within the company. The teamwork and willingness of colleagues to help one another succeed is why I love working for Zipcar. I enjoy the Account Executive role because I get to connect with so many different kinds of companies. It’s great to see how excited people get about the service when they see how convenient it is to use. I love to see the progress of Zipcar becoming a regular part of a company’s operations."

"I have been marketing the Zipcar brand for over 5 years, in 4 different positions and 4 different markets. Straight out of college in San Diego, I joined the company as a part-time Brand Ambassador after I called to tell them how much I love what they do. I then journeyed onto my hometown of San Francisco Bay Area to become the Marketing Coordinator, made my move east to Washington D.C. as the Marketing Manager, and finally landed in New York City as the Regional Marketing Manager. I love working at Zipcar because 1) I know I can always be myself, 2) the innovative environment means I get to turn a vision into reality, and 3) I help make cities better places to live."

"I was a “zipster” before I became an employee. I was so impressed by the concept of car-sharing, and the brilliant ways Zipcar promoted it, that I felt a strong desire to work there “some day”. Amazingly, that desire become a reality. I’m fortunate enough to work with unquestionably the brightest, energetic, and genuinely pleasant people — all across the company."

We work hard (really, really hard). But we also regularly reward ourselves with Zip o’clock happy hours, Guitar Hero jams, and holiday revelry, along with your basic, everyday office hijinks.

    Application

    I applied in-person. The process took 1+ weekinterviewed at Zipcar (Detroit, MI).

    Interview

    Seemed like a really cool place to work, laid back environment and cool entry level job. You'll have to take a background check and a drug test. Pay is a little on the low side, but this seems like it would be a great job for someone who wants to get into event planning on the entry level side.
