Yay! Zappos made FORTUNE MAGAZINE's "100 Best Companies To Work For"

It’s official! Zappos.com made FORTUNE MAGAZINE’s “100 Best Companies To Work For” list for 2009 – and we’re actually mentioned on the cover!

To give a little bit of history, FORTUNE puts out this high profile list every year. Making this list was one of the most important goals that we set for ourselves during the early days of Zappos, and we’re all super excited to show up on the list for the first time in our company’s history! To qualify, a company has to be at least 7 years old and have at least 1000 employees. We came in at #23 this year, making us the highest ranking newcomer for 2009.

Here’s a link to the actual article (it’s 2 pages, you need to hit the non-obvious “2” button to get to the second page, or just use the second link):


Here’s a link to a video FORTUNE also put up:


Here’s a link to another article FORTUNE put up about our core values at Zappos:

Thank you EVERYONE for helping shape the Zappos culture into what it is today. It’s hard to believe that within a 30 day period, we hit $1 billion in gross merchandise sales AND finally made FORTUNE’s list of “100 Best Companies To Work For”! We’ll be coming up with a special commemorative t-shirt celebrating both over the next few weeks!

Tony Hsieh, CEO

I just read the article in Fortune and I was very impressed. As a former dot-com bubble worker and former business journalist it always warms my heart to read about people conducting business in the right way. A well-deserved honor, congratulations.

Congrats for the ongoing success Tony, you deserve every bit of it :) I have been trying to contact you since some time now, however, I'm located in India and dont feel like calling your 1800 number. Tony, please do not take this as a spam or solicitation message, please read carefully. I have some extremely important information that may interest you. Zappos.com is losing out money in terms of hundreds of thousands every month to some unscrupulous internet marketers through your online store. I have good amount of evidence and proofs to prove it. This is REALLY big and you should know about it. Your blog seemed to be the best way to reach you directly. If you care to know more about the evidence I have to give you, please reply back to me directly. I will not talk about it to anyone else because I do not trust anyone else. My email is netproint@yahoo.com My name is Adarsh Kaushal. You can call me if you wish, however, if you email me, please email me through your personal email ID (like: tony@zappos.com), I will not reply back to any other email ID. Once again, please do not take this as a spam message. I have nothing to advertise or promote through your blog. I'm one of your millions of affiliates who are promoting Zappos.com products through internet. I look forward to provide useful information that can help you understand a major flaw in your affiliate marketing network. I can assure you, you will be shocked to know about it. Warm Regards, Adarsh.

Hey Zappos I am just reading that you made the best company to work for list put out by Fortune Mag. Congrats! Now please open up a distribution ctr.or anything run by you here in the bay area. If I could I surely would move to Nevada just to work at Zappos. I have been buying shoes for over 6 yrs. The UPS guy just cracks up when I tell him to have a good day. He knows I am going to have a fun time trying on all those shoes. There is no better service online. There are other shoe sources that are imitating you but they do not get it that your the best! Thanks so much for quick delivery and great choices. Love you Zappos!

I was just impressed with the handwork of Zappos Company maintaining the products and customer service during this economy crisis. Most loyal Zappos customers still love Zappos for shopping as because of the quality of products and great customer service. No wonder why Zappos is still my favorite shopping outlet. Ray
