Zappos Blogs: Zappos Family
We had another training class graduate today. Everyone at Zappos goes through the CLT training program and learns firsthand how to WOW the Zappos way. It provides a shared experience for us all and keeps us grounded to the importance of our customers. I went though it almost a year ago and I had a great time. Our training department is simply superb.
Here’s a picture and a YouTube clip of the new graduates on their traditional parade. Yeah, I got a little misty.
Congratulations to the new graduates!
Recently we visited Universal Studios to film our soon-to-be new TV commercial. As far as TV commercials go this one rules, and I say this not because I work at Zappos, but because it just feels so good (and the song is so stuck in my head)! Short of giving too much away about it, I will share the below pics. But true to Zappos form it is certainly feel good, be weird, and very Zappos ! I’ll just leave you a little hanging to see more :-)
Hopefully the demise of this creature was a bit less terrifyinig than Luca Brazzi’s , but nevertheless they sleep with the same creatures. Our Sys Team, during their down time, (their least favorite word) disassembled an archaic iMac and transformed it into an aquarium for itty-bitty little fish thingies. The Western Chief boot has cousins, all sorts of creatures to wear on your feet or donate to your aquarium. Actually, to wear on your childrens feet, though if you (assuming “you” are on adult) can squeeze into a pair I am all eyes!
Regarding my earlier post, well, walking around the office more Argyle was spotted. Luckily the two ladies were not too camera shy and were willing to pose for an Argyle pic with me! It sparked a thought in me, maybe Argyle is the new Zappos! Or better yet, maybe these are the beginnings of a Zappos.com uniform! SIgn me up!
OK OK, not quite “real” Argyle on Tara, but close enough! It is in the Argyle family.
That is real Argyle on Jessica! And real goofy face on Brian, aka me!
Not feeling cool enough due to lack of Argyle? Well… problem solved!
I love it when accidents happen, especially when they involve my favorite pattern, Argyle! Today, on this lovely Valentine’s Day 2008, during a weekly “status meeting” we discovered just how fashionably alike several of us are. We were brought together by the Argyle ties that bind. Did I mention it was my favorite pattern? It’s quite the conversation starter I might add! Oh, my Argyle socks and shoes ( Ben Sherman ) are sadly not visible in these pics. But trust me, they are there!
Who are these crazy Argylists? Well, Kevin is the tall strapping lad, I am the one in green/brown and the beautiful lady is none other than Michelle!
For all you Facebookers out there, and you know who you are, have a peek at our Facebook page . We are going to use that as just one of the vehicles to post some of our behind the scenes stuff. Currently we’ve added some pics, videos and miscellaneous info. You can see some of the behind the scenes stuff from our Print Ad shoot!
Anyhoo, give it a whirl! Become a fan !
