@inkycatz: Seyz you!

Wait a minute, are you talking about work, work or those who bake cakes?

vote-for17vote-against

i'm hiding in the closet of the seattle office. i'll count the people that walk by and report back.

vote-for10vote-against

42. I know that's probably not right, but it feels right.

edit: lol you beat me to it, gmwhit! You win this round.

@carl669: Great accuracy that I'm working in my cube today then, huh?
@barnabee: I was told that baking the cake was very hard work. Apparently I'm a slacker since you all know now I won't bake a cake. :(

@inkycatz: Wonder who told you that cake baking is very hard work? Hmm, I have some ocean front property, in Kansas, that I'd be willing to sell you. :)

@barnabee: Hey, being able to bake isn't in the job requirements, you know!

vote-for7vote-against

@barnabee: Some people just can't do it. Baking disasters usually happen when people confuse baking with cooking and try to "improve" whatever recipe they're working with, not realizing baking is a formula and not a suggestion.

If it tastes good with a half cup of sugar, it must taste even better with a whole cup! queue explosion in oven

Do monkeys count? If so I am not sure I can count that high....at least not without taking off my socks first.

@inkycatz: You better learn, because the other option isn't quite as pleasant IMHO.

Nationwide, there are 245,762 Woot employees.

Since many of us post deals to the deals woot site can we claim to be consultants for woot and can I put woot on my resume? Do I really want to have woot on my resume?

@dw1771: "Do I really want to have woot on my resume?"

Good question.

I was going to say no one is working at woot, they are training - it's time for MONKEY GAMES

I wanted to +1 this question, but it was already at the answer to life, the universe, and everything.

vote-for4vote-against

@figgers3036: Phew! Fixed, now I can upvote in good conscience.

...so more than 42 people?

vote-for5vote-against

Sadly I live right by the Dallas office, I should drive by and count cars in the lot one day. Still can't figure why shipping takes so long being so close though....hmmmm

vote-for3vote-against

Please define "work". "Employed" might have been a more appropriate word. :)

vote-for12vote-against

From where I'm sitting, I can count 5. Wait, another developer's head just popped up over the cubicle wall. Make that 6.

vote-for5vote-against

It fluctates. They generally have 42 human employees. They then hire 25000 slave monkeys during woot-offs and then sell them off cheap after they are done working for their woot masters..

vote-for1vote-against

Are you wanting to know how many people are on the payroll at Woot....or how many people actually work there? Because, ya know, those are really 2 different questions altogether.......

Runs and ducks for cover before being pelted with flying monkeys by Woot staff

vote-for1vote-against

not enough and they are grossly under paid

vote-for1vote-against

@llandar: You must be counting the monkeys at the keyboards too.

@beatranger: Because that's not creepy at all.

@llandar: It might be if he ran around and left post-it notes on all your windshields.....

vote-for5vote-against

I found a post-it note on my car when I was leaving HQ today. hmmmmmmmmm. Must remember to lock doors.

Number of employees:

Not as many as you probably think.
Never seems like enough.

vote-for2vote-against

I'm going to throw out a guess of 100 employees.

~22ish in seattle Office.
~52ish in Warehousing
~23 in Texas office.

vote-for2vote-against

After some consideration, I'm doubling my guess:

~160 in Texas
~46 in Seattle

vote-for2vote-against

@bogie21: pretty close to the actual, including the split between Dallas and Seattle.

vote-for1vote-against

The verifiable answer is -

55 comedians and 1 janitor.
