My Most Memorable Moment So Far…

These first six weeks of my internship have flown by faster than ever, and it is already a huge task to pin point one moment that is the most memorable to me. I feel like every day I have been so lucky to experience something amazing while interning as a Merchandising Assistant Intern with Fashion Footwear at Zappos.

After day two of work, I was feeling super homesick and a little nervous in a new city. Fortunately, this feeling didn’t last long due to the wonderful people on my team, and the relationship-building tactics that Zappos lives by. Everyone was incredibly welcoming and encouraging. By the end of day two, I was invited to my first vendor dinner, and had no idea what to expect. So as nervous (and excited) as I could possibly be, I got ready, and went on my way to dine with the vendor and representative from Kork-Ease along with my two managers.

Zappos Interns, Zappos Internship Program, Zappos Intern, Zappos Campus, Zappos Merchandising Inc., Las Vegas StripOur dinner was located at SHe in Crystals at City Center, a restaurant right in the middle of the Las Vegas Strip. It was unbelievably fancy, yet the dinner felt so relaxed; my nerves were alleviated almost immediately once it began. The meeting felt more like a social gathering with friends rather than any type of work gathering. The vendor and his rep were personable, and interested in who I was and what my dreams were. I didn’t even think I was going to get the chance speak! At the end of the meal, our guests even proposed a toast to my success here at Zappos.

It is extremely rewarding to be part of a company that focuses so much on building relationships with both their consumers and vendors. It takes relationships and experiences like mine to maintain such strong bonds with all of the amazing vendors that are working with us at Zappos. It was amazing to be a part of this experience, and I don’t think I could ever find another company that will care nearly as much about their employees or the partnerships. I will also never forget my first vendor dinner!

As Las Vegas residents, a lot of us Zapponians are huge fans of The Cosmoplitan because of its cool vibe and luxe gathering spaces like the Chandelier Bar and the Boulevard Pool. So it’s really exciting for us to partner with The Cosmopolitan Las Vegas to experiment with a pop-up store/art installation concept inside its P3 Studio—a space normally reserved for funky art and performance artists.

From now until October 31st, Zappos is taking over the P3 Studio space with a gallery-like exhibit showcasing some of our categories in clothing, shoes and accessories. From fashion to running to outdoor, our talented and creative designers worked very hard to tell an artistic story through the many products offers.

If you’re in Vegas, make sure to stop by and check out our space, redeem your Zappos Gift Card or simply shop the iPad® kiosk located inside the studio!

P.S. While you’re at it, there are tons of awesome restaurants located on the same floor as the studio including a certain “secret” pizza joint. If you don’t know what/where that is…just ask!
