Former Employee - Copywriter in Salt Lake City, UT

I worked at Overstock.com full-time for less than a year

Pros

Company spirit, team camaraderie, nice co-workers, great break room with fun activities to de-stress, employees are valued, lots of downtime, free to listen to music/watch internet TV/movies while working in this position, easy to advance, pay for this position is decent, management was pretty good when I was there

Cons

Lots of downtime (this can be good and bad in my opinion), location of warehouse offices, position is very monotonous and dull, advancements only seem to be reserved for the "boss's pets"

    I have been working at Overstock.com as an intern for less than a year

    Pros

    Excellent company culture. The company does not micromanage its employees. Creativity and career growth are enoucraged. Work environment is clean and very serious with maintaining employee safety.

    Cons

    Most people in the company spend way too much time sitting (and gaining weight). It would be nice to see those desks that can convert between standing and sitting positions become the standard desk.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Although the customer services representatives are recieving wages that match the going market price an increase in salary would not hurt.

    Pros

    Great benefits and really good people. They love to promote from within which is a huge plus. They recognize hard workers and punish lazy workers which is ideal for people who come in and work hard everyday. Overstock works hard to make their culture a diverse and accepting one.

    Cons

    Being a retailer and replying heavily on Black Friday and Cyber Monday means you don’t get much of a thanksgiving break.
