The policy goes like this. A new employee joins Zappos and then he or she is provided a four week training. Zappos then offers the new employee money for the hours worked plus some bonus to quit. Yes, I typed it right. “To Quit”
The reasoning behind this offer is that Zappos wants to attract the right talent to be part of their culture, not someone who is only motivated by money. “Zappos wants to learn if there’s a bad fit between what makes the organization tick and what makes individual employees tick – and it’s willing to pay to learn sooner rather than later. (About ten percent of new call-center employees take the money and run.)” Read more about the Pay to Quit policy.
