Zones – Why Work For Us?



The Company

As one of the largest and fastest growing technology solution providers in the U.S., Zones offers over 1,400 smart, ambitious professionals an environment that fosters rewarding careers in sales, computer and network engineering, logistics, and a variety of corporate and support functions.

Zones is headquartered in the Seattle suburb of Auburn, Washington, with field offices, configuration labs, and logistics centers located across the United States. We also maintain a network of sales and support offices and affiliates around the world.

Our primary business is the sale of IT hardware, software and services to Fortune 500 companies and large enterprise organizations, as well as growing firms of 250 to 5,000 employees.

In addition to delivering the highest level of IT expertise, quality, selection and fulfillment, we offer our clients single-source capability for the comprehensive design and implementation of even the most complex networking, infrastructure, and data center deployments.

The Zones sales organization is segmented into broad Enterprise, Mid-Market and Small-Medium Business teams, as well as targeted Healthcare, and Public Sector teams.

Our technical professionals share their systems expertise with account teams and clients in a variety of solution sales, planning, design, engineering, implementation, and support roles.

At Zones, our goal is to have you make a meaningful contribution to the company, and enjoy yourself while doing it.

For over 25 years, Zones has offered bright, ambitious individuals significant personal and financial rewards as they helped to grow the company from a startup to a billion dollar company. We are proud to say that a significant number of Zones team members in all job categories have been with the company for a decade or more; fostering our growth and creating a culture of commitment and camaraderie.

As we aggressively pursue our target of $2 billion in sales, we want to engage the kind of talent that will help us achieve that goal. If you have the kind of passion, drive, and focus that can help us take Zones to the next level, we want to hear from you.

In return, you can expect competitive compensation, performance-based financial rewards, a balanced benefits package, and opportunities for company-wide recognition of your achievements.

While many Zones employees are recruited as salespeople and become very successful in that role, others discover that they have strengths in related areas such as marketing or sales operations. Wherever your strengths may lie, if you are a solid contributor with a “Get it Done” attitude and a drive to deliver Five Star Service, you can build a lasting career with us.

In addition to competitive compensation, Zones offers team members a variety of health and wellness programs, retirement benefits, training and development programs, opportunities for personal recognition, and more:

    Marketing Manager Interview

    Interview

    What a mess! The HR person originally emailed me to set up a phone interview. We agree on a date and time--a Monday afternoon. However, on the Friday prior, she called at 10:13am, got my VM, and apologized for being so late to the interview call, which apparently she thought was scheduled for Friday at 10. I was out that day and didn't get the message until late afternoon and immediately called her to let her know that we weren't scheduled until Monday. I didn't want her to think I'd had blown her off! (Thankfully the email trail backed up me--always a dicey position to be in as a job searcher. ) At that call, she asked if we could change the time from Monday to Tuesday. I say sure, not a problem. So, what happens on Monday? She calls then. I say "I can totally take the call now, but do you want to do it tomorrow at the time you'd requested, or I'm happy to talk now if you want." She asks if we could do it on Tuesday, so we hang up, and then FINALLY on Tuesday, we have the call.

    It went well and she said she'd talk to the hiring manager and that she was sure he'd want to talk to me, and she'd get back to me in a couple of days to set up a time. I hear nothing. I email her and she gets back to me telling me that the hiring manager had found someone else a few days earlier and had made an offer to that person.

    The reviews for Zones here on Glassdoor are certainly not great. I decided to give them a chance anyway. Obviously, a mistake. Hopefully they will all get their act together soon.
