    I worked at zulily full-time (Less than a year)

    Pros

    Everyone that works here is pretty friendly and it's a very laid back environment. Since it is still a growing company you are able to have input into ways of making your job easier and they are coming up with new positions weekly. The company parties are a nice way to get to know people who might work in different department too.

    Cons

    Some weeks you can't keep up with the workload if people are on vacation or out sick and other weeks there isn't anything to do. In my department people liked to pass off the work so that they could leave early. There were too many meetings that could've been an email.

    Advice to Management

    Pay your employees better and they will be more likely to stick around longer.

    Interview

    Applied online, was contacted the next week for an in-person interview. Interview lasted around 20 minutes, two interviewers. Thought it went well, emailed back the next week asking for an update, where I was told the team had decided to pass. I asked for feedback and they said they weren't allowed to give it.
