    Current Employee - Inside Sales Consultant in Irvine, CA

    I have been working at Zillow full-time (more than an year)

    Pros

    You CAN make 100k first year
    The product you are selling CAN change lives and work for your clients
    Upper management (executives) seem to care about the employees - local management does not
    This is a great first job in sales (they will hire anybody) - if you can succeed at Zillow, you can succeed anywhere
    You will build relationships with outstanding people all across the country
    If you are one of the few, you will be fast tracked out of inside sales (12 -18 months)

    Cons

    LOUD - you will have people screaming, cheering, clapping, noise makers, loud music, etc ALL DAY EVERYDAY
    Its a non stop pep rally and the farthest thing from a professional sales environment you will ever see.

    Revolving door - 90% turnover - don't believe otherwise

    35k base salary

    Long hours - expect 10-12 hours a day to succeed for your first year - sometimes more

    Job outlook - This job never gets easier, don't believe the hype. You will make even more calls tomorrow than you did today. There are 200+ sales reps calling the same zip codes, talking to the same agents, about the same product day after day.

    Call time - you are REQUIRED to TALK 210 minutes everyday (no, the phone ringing doesn't count towards it)
    You will be expected to hit this number every day. Skip lunch, come in early, and stay late but for gods sake don't miss call time. (this correlates greatly to the 90% turnover).

    You will be told to stand up constantly. Some managers will even take your chair away from you.

    You will be discouraged from ever taking time off. Management pretends they need advance notice to take your PTO. They will railroad you if you are sick and expect that you work anyway.

    You will sell terrible advertising packages because you have a quota to hit. You know its not worth what it costs but you'll sell it anyway. (This is a flaw because the product can work well when sold correctly)

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    The OC office needs an influx of culture from Seattle - you can have fun and still remain professional. OC hasn't found that balance.

    Get rid of call time - manage on activity (calls, conversations, sales, etc), not minutes

    Pricing - Find a better formula. Its obscene in many areas. Talk to the front line regarding lead quality and quantity. There is a problem when leads cost hundreds of dollars each.

    Doesn't Recommend
    Neutral Outlook
