I got crowned at Zappos
Last night, I called in to HR Happy Hour and made what has been described on Twitter as “@mikevandervort’s fanboy moment with @jamstar. Very cute.”. I was raving about a company that everyone knows about, but I was raving about my own personal experience with them. On #HRHappyHour, I mentioned the tour they gave me in January 2009, and asked Jamie Naughton (@JamStar on Twitter) if they still had the VIP Throne Room. Happily, she reported that they did.
The throne room is best explained as an office where visitors on tour are offered the opportunity to pick a symbol of royalty like a crown or tiara, and get your picture taken. Zappos gives you one copy, and hangs the other on their VIP wall. It i silly and fun, and a memorable part of the Zappos tour experience.
I was going to go with the tiara originally, but switched to the crown at the last second. I may have to go back and get tiara shot when I am in Vegas for SHRM 2011. In response to several requests, here is the photo of me from Zappos.
