I am sitting in a chair that reminds me of the famous “Royalty Chair” at Zappos, which I sat in when my team at Delivering Happiness toured the Zappos facilities last year in Las Vegas, Nevada. Here I am, one year later speaking with Dr. David Vik, a wildly-successful Chiropractor, turned Zappos Culture Coach, turned Chief Strategy Officer at Riviera Partners and author of a book called The Culture Secret. The book is about empowering people and workplaces, and helping create that WOW experience that has made the culture at Zappos so coveted.
As a former recruiter that has worked at one of the world’s largest staffing firms, people are always asking me for interview tips. And no matter what interview questions they struggle with, I always say the same thing: the best thing you can do in an interview is be yourself.
Recently I was helping to host an event at The Box SF, a local event space in San Francisco. Every year, this private event space in the SOMA district of SF opens its doors to Best Companies to Work For® Genentech, Autodesk, Intel, and Microsoft, among others, all of which rent out this uniquely-beautiful venue for board meetings, company holiday parties and everything in between.
