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

Pros

No one breathing down your neck as long as you are working and not standing around. Worked in several departments and they are all pretty easy. Most of the managers are OK but not all of them. Scott (the Intellisource big boss) and Todd (Zulily big boss) are always watching but clearly care about business AND the employees, rare in my experience with warehouse management.

Cons

Overtime is frequent and most of the time we get little notice (Has caused some issues with my kids and husband). I have seen little opportunity for advancement but hear that the company is growing by leaps and bounds.

Advice to Management

Hire more to keep overtime minimal or at least make it voluntary.

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

    Pros

    Stock could be woth something if it makes it.

    Cons

    I definitely should've read the reviews before I took a job at this place. Extremely clique oriented company. First level management totally ineffective. Turnover rate high.

    "You'll work your butt off. Lots of exposure as company grows but lots of the mundane."

    I have been working at zulily full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    Lots of exposure to a growing company and how to scale. You can help build how things are done. Most of the peers are nice to work with.

    Cons

    Awful hours are expected of you, and nothing's ever good enough. Lack of systems and processes. Hard to get things done as tech and merch are understaffed. People want to work together but it's difficult because everyone is buried under their "own" things, it's hard to branch out and take on new things.

    Advice to Management

    You're stretching people too thin, and for how much is asked, it's very off-putting how little REAL appreciation is given.
