    IT Project Manager Interview

    Application Details

    I applied through other source. The process took 4 weeks - interviewed at Keller Williams.

    Interview Details

    The interview process was pretty lengthy and in-depth, most people probably would be turned off by this because it dives into the way you think and work, which makes you pretty vulnerable. The in-depth personality analysis conducted included a DISC and a second more detailed personality assessment which gaged you're responses to help create a big picture view on how you are best managed and what your personal flaws may be; to allow for more targeted feedback and personal improvement. I was pleasantly surprised by this process as it shows just how important hiring the right people is to Keller Williams and it goes to show how much this pays off for them when interacting with all the people in the office... everyone just meshes together and even though there is still conflict and disagreements between team members as there is with every workplace, they all find a productive way to work through it.

    Important Detail to Note: This is the hiring process for Keller Williams Headquarters (KWRI) and does not apply to the various franchise/market centers they have.

    Interview Questions
    • After taking the personality assessments, you will feel vulnerable and the results will bring a spotlight to your flaws. This can be difficult to face, but if you're humble and willing to work constructively with your team to overcome them, you will do amazing things.   Answer Question
    Negotiation Details
    Negotiating salary was very easy, I also requested a relocation package to cover the move of my family from California to Texas. The request was approved and they gave me an acceptable offer that covered all my expenses.

    I applied through an employee referral. The process took 2 days - interviewed at Keller Williams in August 2014.

    Interview Details

    Be prepared to take a short "DISC" personality assessment. This is, basically, what your interview and subsequent determination of hire will be based upon.
    I personally feel this to be unfair and rather lazy.

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Arlington, VA
    Application Details

    I applied online. The process took 1+ week - interviewed at Keller Williams in July 2014.

    Interview Details

    IT'S A SHOW , NOT INTERVIEW, THAT TAKES 2 HOURS FROM YOUR LIFE. It's a low class company. Just a common real estate agency that tries to make themselves something special and need an advertisement . Because of that they call everybody who has applied and when you go there for an interview you see a big suite where more then 30 people are waiting for the start. You loose your individualism and believe me no one can understand who you are in 1 minute. After waiting a ling time arrives Keri , and they start their presentation. During the all "interview" process they tell each other how good they are , how friendly, good professionals. But it is a stupid place with non professionals. The first question they ask is "tell about yourself in 60 seconds" and everybody tries to do it. After that again they speak and speak, showing their achievements (if they are true) and only after an hour comes the other question "Tell us your 2 biggest strengths. and that's all. You have no more chance to show yourself on interview. After they again speak and tell you that they have many positions so they want to divide candidates on groups . For every position that you are interested you have to go some place at the same suite(right corner , center, etc). one or two of their employees explain you again what are they doing and maybe they will ask you again one simple question like "Your IT skills" that is written in your resume. And tell me please how can they identify is that person a good fit or not for this or that position by asking those 3 simple questions and talking to you max 2 minutes. I don't think so. If it's possible , I am sorry.

    Interview Questions
    • They don't give you any question that will show your knowledge or skills. Maybe only something that is written in your resume, like educational background   View Answer

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Carlsbad, CA
    Application Details

    I applied in-person. The process took a day - interviewed at Keller Williams in January 2011.

    Interview Details

    Going into the interview with sales goals in mind is important. This job requires an entrepreneurial mindset. You must take repetitive action everyday and show up to the office. Even though it's a work from home opportunity, it's still important to have a presence in the real estate office. Occasionally there are walk in leads and if you show up daily, you may get the client.

    Negotiation Details
    No negotiation on commission split; percentage was set at 70/30. After a year of production, office fees were negotiable.
