For this week’s Zapponian Spotlight, we’re getting to know Joey M., a proud member of the US Army Reserves. Joey is one of our awesome ZCLT reps who left on a tour of duty for Afghanistan and rejoined the Zappos Family when he returned home.
We asked Joey a few questions to get to know him a little bit more:
What led you to join the Army Reserves?
J: I didn't want to wake up one day when I was old and say, "I wish I would have served."
What is greatest thing you have learned while in the Army?
J: I've learned to excel in stressful environments, and that nothing really bothers me anymore.
What 3 words describe your personality?
J: Determined, loyal, sarcastic.
What do you like to do for fun?
J: Travel, watch sports, and work on my Nissan 350z
What is your favorite core value and why?
J: #5. Pursue Growth and Learning - I love working at a place that allows us to learn so many things and pursue anything you have interests in.
What is your most embarrasing moment?
J: I truly try very hard to not embarrass myself or let others embarrass me. So I can't actually think of anything right now. However, I'll leave you with a great quote: "A person always doing his or her best becomes a natural leader, just by example." - Joe DiMaggio
