    Pros

    On site gym... on site coffee shop... on site cafeteria...on site manicures and pedicures... On site fish tank... On site massage chairs... Awesome medical benefits... Free snacks... Weekly and monthly campus events... Scheduled auto maintenance services... Scheduled car wash services...what is there not to love or appreciate?

    Cons

    Nothing is perfect. So it's important to understand that with any workplace, you have to find your own way and that means being able to feel Respected, Appreciated, Satisfied, and Empowered... you may not get this feeling with everyone or with every department you work with so appreciate all the small things and simple things which adds up to a whole lot... The real con is the fact that the campus is smack dab in downtown which lends to all the of the dynamics that all downtown cities have (homelessness, traffic, pollution, noise, yadda, yadda) coupled with the desert heat that lasts 5-6 months of the year from April - October... Thank goodness for the Air Conditioning.

    Advice to Management

    The summer heat was especially brutal this year and it continues to be hot even through September...so wouldn't it be nice to have those efficient recycling water misters and water fountains around campus to cool things off since it's fairly hot throughout the year... Maybe even plant a few more tall trees around the campus... Put some green Trees on top of the building and parking lots. Hell let's put an adult splash pad in the center of the Metro! Here's to the little things that adds up to bigger things that make our Lives, our Community, our Family and our Work so wonderful at Zappos.

    Application

    I applied through other source. The process took 1 day. I interviewed at The Zappos Family (Las Vegas, NV) in April 2011.

    Interview

    Very friendly and informal. Included meeting team members and socializing after work. Good to see that they are looking for more than great marks on a piece of paper.
