iHerb – Why Work For Us?

About iHerb

iHerb sells nutritional supplements and other healthy products both domestically and internationally. A rapidly-expanding business, iHerb carries one of the largest selections of high-quality nutritional products in the world.

Since 1996, iHerb has striven to enhance your online shopping experience. Initially, our company promoted the benefits of the herb St. John's Wort; hence the name: iHerb. We believe iHerb offers the best overall value for healthy products anywhere.

Our success and very existence are dependent on the repeat orders and word-of-mouth recommendations by loyal, satisfied customers. 

With our advanced e-commerce platform, plus two state-of-the-art warehouses in California and Kentucky, you'll find features such as speedy reordering and up-to-the-minute stock information -- including product expirations dates. Plus, you can browse more than 35,000 products made by more than 1000 well-known, respected brands.

iHerb has also been certified by NSF International as a Good Manufacturing Practices facility.



iHerb employees enjoy insurance coverage that addresses key benefit areas:

Health, Dental & Vision Care: Presently, iHerb pays 75% of the health, dental & vision insurance benefit cost for both the individual and their immediate family. Employees become eligible for insurance benefits on the first of the month following their hire date. Insurance benefits and the amount of their coverage varies by location.

Company paid Term Life Insurance policy ($50,000) with AD&D as a rider

Voluntary Life (for employee, spouse and children)

Accidental Death & Dismemberment (AD&D) rider on all Voluntary Life products

Short and Long-Term Disability

Flexible Spending Account (for covered dependent care and medical expenses)

Colonial Supplemental Benefits


iHerb offers two benefits to aid in supporting the retirement needs of its employees.

Safe Harbor 401(k): Employees are eligible to participate first of the month following their hire date. iHerb matches 100% of the first 4% of the employee's contribution. All matching contributions are immediately 100% vested.

Profit Sharing Plan: All employees are eligible for profit sharing after one year of service with iHerb and vesting occurs over a six-year period. The profit sharing plan contributions are made at the discretion of the company.

Introduce iHerb to Others and Help Great Causes

iHerb believes in the value of helping others, especially through charitable giving. Since 2010, iHerb has supported numerous charitable organizations. Now 5 years later, iHerb is expanding our charitable giving with a new program where customers can help.

Beginning in 2015 for every first-time customer that is attributable to a charitable organization below, iHerb will donate $10. All you need to do is decide which cause you want iHerb to donate to and forward the highlighted yellow link to people you know.

Copy and paste one of highlighted yellow links below and email it to as many people you wish, or post it to your Facebook, Twitter, or other social media accounts. When you share these links, first-time customers will save $5-10 on their first order with iHerb.


Our Story, Our Vision

    I worked at iHerb full-time (More than 5 years)


    I've said it many times... I've learned more at this company than at all others I've worked combined. I spent half my time at iHerb working on the company's Website and Website subsystems and the other half working primarily on Payment systems. All I can say is, "What a ride!" I wouldn't trade it for anything. The company continues to grow and succeed and the people are truly fantastic -- I made lots of great friends at iHerb.

    This is a fast paced work environment and may not be for the faint-hearted, but if you want to learn something, stick with iHerb and you surely will. I am grateful for the experience I had at iHerb.


    I have nothing negative to say.

    I applied through a recruiter. I interviewed at iHerb (San Mateo, CA) in March 2018.


    The interview process was interesting, informative and awesome! The interviewers were very polite, friendly and professional. I was glad to meet two company representatives who interviewed me. They asked all standard interview questions and a lot about my work experiences.
