Overstock.com – Why Work For Us?


Who We Are

Situated just south of Salt Lake City, Utah, we are an original resident of 'Silicon Slopes,' one of the fastest growing technology hubs in the country. We're driven problem-solvers and supportive collaborators, and we value passionate, creative people who love and believe in the work we do. Each one of us has a unique role in a dynamic ecommerce landscape, and we have room for people like you to join our team! Oh, did we mention we grow some pretty good tomatoes?

 

What We Value

YOU. Each of our employees contributes to making Overstock what it is. Clever, intelligent, bold, fun, and diverse are only a few adjectives to describe our diverse mix of people. We respect, trust, and encourage each other. Open, productive discussions are key to problem-solving – along with a laugh or two. We never settle, and neither should you. We strive to inspire you to make your professional goals a reality. Dream careers for all.

We invite you to join our team of talented and diverse professionals. If you like to find new and interesting ways to work efficiently, enjoy collaborating with others, or willing to go above and beyond to achieve goals, this is the place for you. We pride ourselves on offering associates a strong work-life balance. We know you have a life, and a family, outside of work. With a full benefits package and more, working for us will give you all the tools to improve the lives of you and your family. When given flexibility to accomplish your professional and life goals, everyone benefits.

With a wide variety of talented people working here, you will easily find your niche. We provide an environment that helps stimulate creativity and innovation where new ideas are put to work. Our Idea Lab community encourages all associates to speak up and propose their ideas to the executive team.

We’re not just a for-profit business. We continually strive to improve our corporate social responsibility and provide opportunities to serve our local and global community. From garbage clean-ups to volunteering in the community, we provide many ways for you to get involved. Want to learn more about our endeavors? Check out our We Care tab!

 

You’re not only applying for your next job, but for your dream career. Once you have joined Overstock.com, we will work hard to make sure your career sees continued growth while maintaining work-life balance. Does this really happen? Check out the video explaining how one of our associates grew from a janitor to an engineer.

Overstock is committed to a diverse and engaging workforce. From your race, color, sexuality, and gender to your nationality, veteran status, and religion, we celebrate what makes you, you. Recently, Comparably recognized our CEO, Patrick Byrne, for his efforts to promote diversity within our company.

The tech industry suffers from a lack of female representation, especially at leadership levels. Overstock.com Women’s Network (OWN) supports, inspires, and celebrates women in our professional community and aspires to bridge the gender gap. OWN welcomes all for meetings which include volunteer, educational, networking, lunch and learn, and book club events. Overstock’s mentorship program, maternity leave policy, and onsite daycare facility also builds a supportive culture for associates. Finally, we have pledged to interview at least one qualified female for every open role, VP and higher, as well as C-suite and the board through the ParityPledge.

We strive for excellence. Once here, members of our diverse workforce have the chance to build upon their skills. Overstock’s training and development team provides our employees with classes on a wide variety of subjects. From emotional intelligence and leading from your core to tough talks and leadership, you’ll find something that fits with your professional goals. Apply today and join our team!

 
How We Make A Difference
 
Sustainability is at the heart of what we do at Overstock.com. We strive to keep our footprint on this earth to a minimum. Peace Coliseum, our global headquarters, had a sustainability focus when it was designed and built, using recycled materials for construction and receiving a LEED Gold Certification  from the U.S. Green Building Council. Our campus was strategically placed adjacent to a TRAX station, encouraging employees to take public transportation. It also features an onsite greenhouse, which provides fresh food to our cafeteria and feeds our employees.


 

Our handmade, fair-trade department, Worldstock.com, was founded in 2001 to provide artisans from around the world a platform to sell their handcrafted products. This provides Overstock customers access to unique items made with traditional techniques while helping to support developing communities in which these artisans live and work. Since Worldstock’s inception, more than $100 million has been given back to artisans and suppliers throughout the world.



Everyone needs a best friend. Overstock partners with Best Friends Animal Society® to connect individuals with rescue animals at shelters and adoption centers around the country who await their new families. If a pet isn’t feasible but you still want to get involved, you can donate to Best Friends Animal Society® at checkout. 


  
We want to make a positive and lasting impact on the lives of the families of fallen military personnel. Special Operations Warrior Foundation ensures a fully-funded education to every child of an Army, Navy, Air Force, or Marine Corps special operations service member who loses their life in the line of duty. You can donate to this foundation at checkout.   

In addition to our partnerships, Overstock works with dozens of organizations every year throughout the country to help families in need. We work with organizations like American Red Cross, Make a Wish Foundation, and Human Rights Campaign.  At Overstock, we believe that everyone should have a dream home and that mission spreads wide and far. 

We, Overstock.com, seek to provide dream homes for all. We are a technology-based retail company offering customers a wide variety of high-quality products, at great value, with superior customer service. We provide customers bargains by giving suppliers an alternative inventory distribution channel. Want to find out more? We regularly post information about our company and other related matters under Investor Relations on our website.

Medici Ventures, a wholly-owned subsidiary of Overstock.com, oversees a growing portfolio of groundbreaking technical companies within the blockchain space including tZERO and Desoto. While blockchain technology may sound foreign to you, you’ve probably heard of its first killer app: Bitcoin. Ravencoin (RVN), our new and improved version of Bitcoin, prevents dominance by mega mining pools and provides a free, open-source platform for everyday folk.

tZERO operates like the “Blockchain version of Wall Street.” They integrate Blockchain technology with existing market processes to reduce settlement time and costs, and increase efficiency, transparency and auditability.

Voatz is combining biometrics and blockchain technologies to change the way we vote. Its technology allows people to use their own smartphone to safely, securely, and remotely vote in any local, state, federal, or other type of election.

We were the first major retailer to accept Bitcoin as payment — all the way back in 2014! Since then, Overstock and Medici Ventures have worked hard to push the development and innovation of blockchain technology. Blockchain is the future of technology, and we are leading the way!

Launched in early 2007 and redesigned in February 2008, Overstock.com Cars serves as an alternative to the traditional car-buying process by connecting customers to dealers in their local area. With pre-negotiated, dealer-discounted pricing, customers get a streamlined car-buying experience. For those looking for a vehicle at a significant bargain price, our Clearance Lot highlights inventory in the customer's local market with the greatest discounts.

    Corporate Recruiter Interview

    Anonymous Employee in Salt Lake City, UT
    Accepted Offer
    Positive Experience
    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied through a recruiter. I interviewed at Overstock.com (Salt Lake City, UT) in May 2017.

    Interview

    It was very professional but casual. I was in a large conference room and met with 3-4 different people during the process. I then met with the VP of people care and was able to ask him the direction of the company and how I could help fulfill that vision.
