Working at Zoro

Life is better when you can have fun at work.

Job. Toil. Daily grind. Rat race. Slog. Hamster wheel. Punch the clock. That’s how some people describe a “normal” work day. Who wants that daily routine? Not us!

At Zoro, our “normal” is a little different.

On a “normal” Zoro day, you might:

  • icon1  use emojis more than your desk phone
  • icon2  sit on a yoga ball instead of a desk chair (if that’s your thing)
  • icon3  dodge the occasional co-worker on a scooter or roller skates
  • icon4  get pulled into a lunchtime ping-pong or badminton battle
  • icon5  have a spontaneous chat with the president on “bacon vs. prime rib”
  • icon6  work on 5 different projects, with 5 different departments

WORK CULTURE

Everything we do at Zoro is centered around caring for our customers — so it's natural that we care for each other with just as much gusto.

Collaborative. Inclusive. Transparent. Dynamic. These are usually buzzwords thrown out by corporations to describe their culture. Here, we really mean it.


Collaborative

Face-to-face conversations are valued more than meetings or email chains


Inclusive

Company meetings led by a different staff member each week


Transparent

Key metrics that are shared with everyone (sales, earnings, wins, losses)


Dynamic

An openness to try new business ideas, celebrate successes, and learn from failures
