Culture During elementary school I’d spend class doodling strange monsters or made-up superheroes saving the day. For me, this was my escape from a world in which I was bullied and relentlessly made fun of; kids are mean and there’s no guidebook for public school survival. The only coping mechanism I realized I had was the pencil and a piece of paper, so I focused on that made-up world instead.
Community Have an extra box or two (or three) piling up around the house? Well, fan-tan-diddly-astic! We invite you to participate in the #ImNotABox (http://www.imnotabox.com) Sweepstakes for a chance to win a $500 Zappos gift card throughout the month of August.
Culture Part of Zappos’ culture has always included the input and innovation of its employees. Zapponians are encouraged to take the wheel and fill the voids where they see fit, instead of hoping someone else would. The fostering of these ideas has birthed many projects, like the longstanding zChoir, the volunteer centric Karma Adventures and Zappos Leaf, which heads up Zappos’ sustainability movement.
Culture Well, according to MetLife’s 10th annual study on the topic of job perks, a lot of value is being placed on the personalized benefits a company offers nowadays. Most leading organizations have chosen this route for the sake of employee morale, engagement and retention. Zappos is one such organization.
Culture Undergraduates enrolled at Marquette University’s Advertising, Public Relations and the Internet course (ADPR 4300) are at it again! As part of the curriculum’s midterm project, students were tasked with creating an infographic depicting the lifecycle of every shoe sold on Zappos. For months, these young scholars learned the ins and outs of our business, including the processes in place for delivering lightning fast shipping straight to your front door.
