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:

Zones is committed to recruiting, hiring, developing, compensating, and promoting the best qualified individuals for positions at all levels within the company. Our goals will only be achieved if the company obtains, enhances and utilizes the abilities of superior candidates at all levels.

We therefore maintain an unequivocal commitment to and support of equal employment opportunity for all individuals, free from discrimination based on race, color, ethnicity, national origin, religion, citizenship, marital status, sex, sexual orientation, age, disability, genetic information, military status or military obligations or any other legally protected characteristic.

    Director, IT Service Delivery Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate
    No Offer
    Negative Experience

    Application

    I applied through a recruiter. I interviewed at Zones.

    Interview

    Recruiter engaged me and convinced me to consider the role, which would have meant a relocation to Auburn, WA. I was set up twice for the interview. On both occasions, the interviewer didn't call or send any contact that he needed to reschedule. The first time, I called the recruiter and she was very nonchalant about it, telling me that sometimes this person just got busy and failed to call. After the second occurrence, I withdrew my candidacy based on the lack of professionalism and respect for others.
