Today's Zapponian Spotlight, Beth M., is a ZCLT rep on the graveyard team. So, if you happen to call our customer service lines at night, you just might get Beth helping you on the other line!
We decided to get to know Beth a little bit by asking her a couple of questions:
What brought you to Las Vegas?
B: I was living in Portland, OR and had just lost a job of 8 years. I came here to visit my mom at Thanksgiving, shortly after my Dad had passed away. By the time I left, I decided that there was nothing holding me in Portland, and job opportunities were probably better in Vegas. Plus, I was a little worried about my mom being alone, and I wanted to live closer to her. I moved here in January of 2009, and got hit with the lucky stick by Zappos in August. Surprisingly, I love it here. I grew up in So Cal, and came here a lot on weekends, but never imagined I'd live here!
What is your favorite musician or band?
B: I love classic rock, like Santana, the Stones and Eric Clapton. I also love Kid Rock!
What 3 words describe your personality?
B: Silly, off-the-wall, and happy.
What do you like to do for fun?
B: I'm a home body a lot of the time! I like hanging out with friends, going out to eat, gambling. I love to garden, too, but all I have is gravel now so everything is in pots.
Working the Graveyard shift means I sleep most of the day, and I'm working when most people are out having fun, like on the weekends.
I really look forward to Zappos events like the awesome picnic we just had because I get a chance to reconnect with my Zappos Family!
What is your favorite core value and why?
B: #3 - Create Fun and a Little Weirdness! Anyone who knows me understands why. LOL
What is your most embarrasing moment?
B: Actually, not too much embarrasses me. However, I went to a Harvest Festival in Oregon with a friend who was visiting from L.A. There was one of those sling-shot things where you launched a pumpkin and there was a target to hit wayyyy off in the distance. I was pulling it back really hard for a good launch, when my friend thought it would be a good idea to pull ME back (to help). The minute she pulled me, my feet slipped and I was flat on my back in a pool of mud. When I finally got up, there was a line of people who watched it happen. I was horrified! I had to finish the day walking around with the entire backside of me covered in mud!
