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. (We seem to come up with an excuse to buy cupcakes every week). We also get the satisfaction of learning from each other, laughing a lot, and competing ladle-to-ladle in the annual Chili Cook-off.

    Brand Ambassador Interview

    Interview Details

    Submitted resume and cover letter via email. Got an email back setting up a phone interview. Then did phone interview with 2 people, one of which is a brand ambassador herself. The interview was not very long. You are welcome to ask questions. The brand ambassador wasn't very welcoming. Maybe it was her first time doing this. She didn't seem at ease with it.

    Interview Questions
