    I applied in-person. The process took a dayinterviewed at Keller Williams.

    Very simple interview. Are you licensed? How long? With who previously? After that we discussed their commission splits, annual limits on commissions, and office fees. Then I was given a short tour of the office and that was it.

    You can come in for an interview but there is virtually no one that doesn't get hired to a company as they have nothing to lose. They want as many agents as possible.

    Financial Operations Assistant Interview

    Anonymous Employee in Portland, OR
    Anonymous Employee in Portland, OR
    Application Details

    I applied online – interviewed at Keller Williams in December 2014.

    Interview Details

    It was a very easy process. I applied online to their job ad posted on Indeed. Within three days, I was contacted by email by a manager and a phone interview was set up. The phone interview was pleasant and casual. After that, I heard nothing back. My rating of this interview is a negative mainly because of that. No further follow up, no courtesy to update, nothing.

    For whatever reason, the guy I talked with was reluctant to give me the address of where their Portland office is located. He wouldn't give me the specific address over the phone even when asked and his email signature did not have an address listed as part of it. The posting on Indeed also did not specify where in Portland they were located. After doing a little online research, I discovered that the location is most likely completely inconvenient out in the boondocks and not near decent public transportation. Assuming that was the correct address, I would not have taken the job even if it was offered.

    Real Estate Agent Interview

    Anonymous Employee
    Application Details

    I applied online. The process took a dayinterviewed at Keller Williams in December 2014.

    Interview Details

    I saw an ad on Craigslist and having just passed my licensing exam, thought I would email to see what would happen. The ad stated they were "urgently seeking agents" (in all caps) but I still expected more of a traditional interview. I talked with the poster of the ad initally and she scheduled a time for me to come in and "see the office". When I got there she wasn't there, but the CEO of the office showed me around told me a lot of company culture tidbits and things that were certainly intended to impress me, asking me very little about what I would contribute to them. He tried to get me to sign papers with them right then and there. A lot of what he was saying sounded too good to be true, so I looked up the company online when I got home. A lot of people were describing it is a pyramid scheme/multi-level marketing plan and it seemed like what he was saying to me in the interview was misleading if not out and out false. Maybe the type of business they run would be good for some people but as someone looking for real estate experience in smaller office with support from existing staff I could tell this was not going to be for me. It seemed like they would take any warm body that walked through the door - if something is as easy as this is, I believe it is too good to be true.

    Interview Questions
    • There are no difficult questions - I could have barely spoken English and they would still want me in their downline.   Answer Question
    Reasons for Declining

    Signing right then and there with them seemed exploitative and I wanted to know what I was getting into...I'm glad I waited and researched the company first. It's not for everyone.

    Interview Details

    Applied through an email from HR that was sent to a friend. Long interview process, took about a month.

    IT Project Manager Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Austin, TX
    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Austin, TX
    Application Details

    I applied through other source. The process took 4 weeksinterviewed 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 weeksinterviewed at Keller Williams in September 2014.

    Interview Details

    Called in, scheduled an interview. Met with top bosses and after one interview was hired. Set up additional meeting to discuss pay, benefits, duties, and schedule. Started work the next day.

    Interview Questions
    • Anything related to Dotloop, eEdge, or other KW.com questions. If you know the systems, you know them...if not you are going to have a tough time competing with others who do.   Answer Question
    Negotiation Details
    I would say, if you know the programs, ask for top dollar. If you have to learn many of the programs, then accept lower pay but ask for raise after X months
