Everyone must know some Jeff! He really is fantastic guy to talk to and work with! He works C-shift receving, even though I have been seeing him all day during the day! He must really LOVE Zappos to be here all hours of the day! :) But who doesn’t? His beard seems to keep keep getting longer each time I see him. Maybe its me?
What Dept. Do you work in and what is your position?
Lead receiving C-shift 1 each. Receiving is broken up into 3 parts Unload, Receiving, and Put away. We have a lead for each and generally rotate out duties about every 3 months. Currently I am over the unload team. I handle issues that may arise with merchandise as it comes off the Truck-o-saurus Rex. And sign various paper work. Also making sure the incoming freight stays organized so we can keep FIFO alive.
Tell us a little bit about yourself:
I have a 3yr old son (ornery), a 1yr old daughter (more ornery), 1 dog (80 lbs of ornery) and a girlfriend. I have worked at Zappos since AUG 22 of 2006 been full time since Dec 2 2006, Live in KY since 2004. Come from Lubbock TX, home of nothing impressive. My hobbies include keeping the kids happy, playing video games, riding my motorcycle, and sleeping at any point I can.
What’s the best thing ever about working for Zappos.com?!
EVERYTHING. I never have been good at playing favorites but the top of my list I guess goes the peeps, free lunches, great benefits, the peeps and I bet the chiller system and super heroism when they arrive.
Favorite food served at Zappos?
TACO BAR!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! MMMMMHHHHHhhhhhhhh Taco!!!!!!!!!!!
What’s your favorite thing to do outside of work?
Fight Club??? Oh no my fav is? Talking to my son really. I think 3 yr olds invented insanity. They had to have they say the craziest stuff.
Best gift you ever received?
Chicken soup. I really don’t even like it but I used to always talk about chicken soup for some reason and an acquaintance bought me a case of chicken soup for my b-day one time. Though I gave most of it away it made me smile, and reminded me to watch what I wish for because I just might get it….
