My office space is cramped and I am not a fan of the “door desks”, however I enjoy working with everyone I am cramped with. :)

Love the shirts obviously. My two favorites right now include a whale in space that says “Why am I here?” and a shirt with a taco that says “Taco is short for specTACOular!”
Do you have any advice for people thinking of applying to work for Woot?
Be prepared to be challenged and to do some challenging.
Woot is a daily deals site that started way back in 2004.
Originally, Woot offered one product per day, no more and no less. Today, Woot offers multiple daily deals and many weekly sales across multiple categories, plus special site-wide events like Woot-Offs and other shenanigans. And hey, there's an App too!
We need a lot of people to make all this magic happen each and every day. Take a look at the open positions and see which one moves your heart. Throw us a resume and maybe soon you'll be one of us! ONE OF US! ONE OF US! ONE OF US!
PS: Employees aren't allowed to buy Bags of Crap. Just puttin' that out there now.
I have been working at Woot full-time
Woot is the type of place you enjoy going to everyday. Teams are close-knit and ready to help you whenever you need. There is a great training structure by your coworkers and supervisors with no "bad" questions. Although it is a subsidiary of Amazon, Woot definitely has a start-up feel and culture. Each employee is valued and nobody is "above" one another. There is a great emphasis on Customer Obsession and it can be seen through the work of the VM, Finance, Ops, HR teams, etc. The Amazon pay structure is also very nice. And there are always dogs to pet.
I wish there were more company-wide events but I like that we do things with our teams!
I applied online. I interviewed at Woot (Dallas, TX) in April 2017.
Very simple. Very few questions. Interviewer put phone on mute to be able to focus on typing/ recapping my responses to her questions. Then would repeat answer back to confirm she had correctly recapped the question. The questions were not so difficult. The process was ackward.
