Recruiter Spotlight: What’s Life Like @InsideZappos?

Have you ever wanted to see a face behind the careers process at Zappos? From time to time I get suggestions that it would be nice to make our approach to hiring more personable. Well we’ve listened, and here’s our first attempt at doing just that!

Zappos Culture, Zappos Jobs, Zappos Careers, Zappos Recruiters, @InsideZappos, Twitter, Zappos Summer Internship Program, #InsideZappos, Allow me to introduce myself. My name is Christina, and I’m a recruiter here at Zappos.com, Inc. located in downtown Las Vegas, NV. I’ve been working here for just a little over two and a half years, and I absolutely love it! One of my favorite things about working for Zappos is not only the people I get to work with, but also the fact that the company values personal growth.

My path at Zappos began in September 2011 where I was fortunate enough to get hired into the customer loyalty team (CLT), also known as our amazing call center. One of Zappos’ core values is to “Pursue Growth and Learning.” So I did just that, and after six months I applied for an internal Z’Apprentice position in recruiting. From there I assisted with our tech department needs and got an opportunity to fill the shoes (pun intended!) of the college recruiting coordinator. While in this role, I helped recruit, organize, and manage our summer internship program! Just recently I was promoted to a recruiter role, and I now assist with our marketing and creative services positions. My journey here at Zappos is something that is always evolving, and I’m constantly faced with excitingly new day-to-day challenges.

Today, I’m excited to announce that we are starting a new chapter in our social recruiting efforts, and the journey begins with our new Twitter handle @InsideZappos. I'll be the voice of @InsideZappos all this week, sharing lots of fun info about Zappos and helping everyone see what a great company we are.

New Brand Spotlight: Descendant of Thieves

new brand spotlight, descendant of thieves, Dres Ladro, men's fashion apparel, men's fashion clothing,Descendant of Thieves is designed by the pseudonymous artist Dres Ladro. Ladro translated from Italian means "thief"—as the root of this nom de plume implies, he is a Descendant of Thieves.

As a young man, Dres Ladro would sneak into his father’s closet and steal his traditional shirts in order to de-seam and re-engineer the entire garment. Dres designs from the inside out, paying relentless attention to intricacies of the interior first. He distorts aesthetics by cutting the silhouette slim and integrating his distinct detailing, including hidden messages and signature yellow taping in the finished interiors.

Once he joined the art world, his unique attire continued to set him apart. Dres designed, constructed, and wore only his own clothing, so as to never be seen wearing the same thing as anyone else. Despite the attention his singular button-ups and jackets received, he had no interest in starting a brand or selling his designs: he planned to design these limited edition clothes for himself and himself alone.

Over time, Dres was convinced to develop a line of clothing including shirts, pants, and outerwear based on the blueprints of his uniquely engineered designs. Descendant of Thieves is manufactured in a small-scaled sample room rather than conventional high output production lines. His philosophy translates to no more than 400 units per style being cut and each care label including that unique garment’s number in the limited production run. From laid-back reversible shorts to tailored jackets, Descendant of Thieves is designed for men who are effortlessly stylish rather those who seek attention.

(traditional clothes - Dad) x eccentric artist = Descendant of Thieves
