    Pros

    Not many... a paycheck is it!

    Cons

    Very crazy and unfair, treat their employee's like slaves. unrealistic work load, up to 70 hours a week, allow terrible language, and sexual jokes!
    Have big parties, food and treats whenever CEO is in town, he has no idea what really happens in his company!
    When you hear stories of unfair working conditions and sweat shops you usually think this happens in other places through out the world, but it is here in the USA, many people need money so bad they are willing to take unsafe, unfair, and dishonest working conditions to support their families. no heat in winter, no air, limited fans in summer, temps over 105 indoors, many people passing out. old/used or no equipment, (a man had his arm stuck in a machine for over 30 min. no outside help was called to assist him to avoid work related accident report, later he was fired for resting after this situation). Fire in one of the large trash trucks, firemen came, smoke filled building -we were told to continue working.
    many times they don't even have toilet paper for associates, and make comments that at least you have inside toilets. 8 toilets for over 600 people.
    managers are crazy, overworked, very, very, very high turnover, revolving door, people quit every day.
    Customers are getting great bargins but at what cost, should associates in America work in these conditioins?

    I worked at zulily full-time (less than an year)

    Pros

    Enjoyed working there,yes the hrs are long but never bothered me.

    Cons

    Time off is given by notice on board outside office. If you put in for time off. If it is not listed as approved you are pointed after they say 13 days you will be terminated. Does this sound like a responsible work place? I had to have time off for surgery, put in time off was never posted,so I guess it was never approved, when you ask, don't know yet is the reply and you go on for 2 more weeks still no post or reply. Would like some feed back on this if you could

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Not to be so rude and uncaring
