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

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

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.

    Great opportunity in business growth, which in turn makes it necessary to apply the cutting edge technology of cloud computing, big data business intelligence and AI. As an established e-Commence company, iHerb has been expanding very rapidly in global market recently, which opens up a lot of oversea opportunities. It's amazing to see the company become more globalized.


    Not fast enough to refactor key business components which is causing lots of pain when running them in parallel.

    Negative Experience
    Easy Interview


    I applied online. I interviewed at iHerb.


    Horrible! The communication was absolutely horrible with the recruiter at iHerb. I received an email asking to set up a phone screening, and quickly e-mailed back my availability. 2 days response. So, I followed up. We set up a time for the following week during my lunch and no call. I gave him 15 min before sending him an e-mail and following up about our phone call. He responds about 10 min later saying he forgot to send out a calendar invite and asked if I'd be available later that day. At this point, my entire image of iHerb was tarnished. Taking the higher road I agreed to the later phone call and was told I'd hear back from him either the next day or the day after that. Well, it's been 5 days now and no word. Who in their right mind would want to work for a company so disorganized that they can't even make it to their own agreed upon interviews. Definitely was a blessing in disguise.
