    I have been working at zulily (Less than a year)


    Good benefits and hours, good training and incentives. Lots of overtime opportunities.


    Advancement seems daunting - if you are ambitious that seems to be laughed off. Senior staff are rude and not welcoming to new hires. Pay is awful

    Advice to Management

    More money, better attention to the individual.
