    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.

    It's all commission, no matter what. Standard commission split is 70/30

    Real Estate Agent Interview

    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 1 dayinterviewed at Keller Williams in December 2014.

    Interview

    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.

    I applied through an employee referral. The process took 3 daysinterviewed at Keller Williams (New York, NY) in December 2014.

    Interview

    The interview process is either short and sweet or you can ask the team leader as many questions as you can. Interviewing at Keller Williams is not about what they ask you but what you ask of them and their structure of their business model.

    Financial Operations Assistant Interview

    Negative Experience
    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied online – interviewed at Keller Williams (Portland, OR) in December 2014.

    Interview

    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.

    Difficult Interview

    Application

    I applied through other source. The process took 2+ monthsinterviewed at Keller Williams in November 2014.

    Interview

    It takes a LONG time and is VERY thorough. I love this about the company, however, it took me 60+ days the first time I was hired by a KW office to go through the hiring process. All VERY much worth it. There were multiple meetings; screening interview, comprehensive interview, behavior assessment, validation of that assessment, conversation about my perfect 5 years, etc. They also called all of my references and asked those references if they could refer someone else they knew who had worked with me in the past. At first I was apprehensive about it, however, it turned out to be great. They were pleased with how many additional references were provided to them from my references. It took much longer than I anticipated and yet it was worth it. I really felt like I knew the company and the person who was interviewing me after the process was complete.
