Zappos.com cousin hosting Open House in Victoria

Job-seekers interested in working for a pioneering Internet marketplace are invited to attend an open house at AbeBooks on Wednesday July 29th from 1:00pm to 2:30pm.

Headquartered in Victoria, AbeBooks is an online marketplace for new, used, rare and out-of-print books that helped revolutionize how secondhand books are bought and sold. The company was founded in 1996 and acquired by Amazon.com in December 2008. More than 20 people are currently employed in the customer support section, which helps booksellers to sell books and booklovers to buy books.

Potential customer support employees will be given an introduction to the business and learn more about the skills required to work at AbeBooks. There will also be a tour of the facility and the opportunity to meet Human Resources director Judy Hamza and Shaun Jamieson, Director of Sales and Account Management.

AbeBooks is located in a state-of-the-art office building at 655 Tyee Road – just a few minutes from downtown Victoria. Drop on by or if you have questions, email hr@abebooks.com. Don’t forget your resume.
