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, 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.

Christina - I just signed up to be a Zappos Insider and was looking around the site at the various Teams. I love working with data and I know some of the market research and analysis functions are heavily data focused, so I look forward to keeping up with the Marketing Team and seeing what opportunities there might be to contribute to the Team in the future.

And...I figured being the first to comment on your post was a good way to get noticed :)

Have a great day! Keith

Hi Christina! It's so awesome that you've had all those opportunities! I think Customer Service is always a great place to start...cause that is what the first priority of a company should be. The growth at Zappos is exciting. I'm totally a creative type, and immediately joined the creative team, but you have to start on that yellow brick road before reaching the Emerald City! Hopefully sans Flying Monkeys...
