Very Easy Interview
I applied through a recruiter and the process took a day - interviewed at Long & Foster in June 2011.
Interview Details – I went onto the Long & Foster website, and completed the RealStar Survey. A couple of weeks later I received a call asking that I meet up with the Managing Broker at the Manassas location. I was very excited that I received a call back, and excited to talk about my options as a real estate agent. The day after I received the phone call, I went to the Manassas location and spoke to the broker. To say the least, I was very disappointed. I couldn't help but to have the feeling that he was not taking my inquiry very seriously about joining Long & Foster. I was probably in the office for 5-10 minutes, tops, & he did not ask me at all if I had any questions about Long & Foster, and actually did not seem very genuine. I had several questions thay I would have loved to have answered, however his lack of interest turned me off. Additionally, he said that since I was not already licensed, and had not taken any courses in real estate, that I did not have any questions. Afterwards, he told me that I can go online and read about Long & Foster and see about the 99 dollar classes that will be during the summer. I feel that this was a total waste of time, and that this could have been a conversation over the phone versus going to the office for only 5 minutes. I am usually not one to complain, because it is just not in my nature, however his attitude was very disappointing.
Interview Question – What do you do at your current job? Answer Question
Reason for Declining – I am not interested in working for this broker, let alone Long & Foster, because he represented Long & Foster in a negative light and was not interested in my questions or really talking about Long & Foster in the slightest bit. A total waste of time and gas.
I applied through other source and the process took a day - interviewed at Long & Foster in July 2009.
Interview Details – One office was being merged into a larger office. Interview was more of a getting to know you session and goal setting for the next year. Office manager asked how much income you desired and then helped you work backwards to determine how much business you need to obtain that outcome. Asked about my SOI and how I planned to make contact with them to get leads. Gave advice about farming and SOI contacts.
Negotiation Details – As a newbie going into the business the made it seem like a very firm structure. Probably should have attempted to get a better starting rate. Advice to others play up the volume and quality of your SOI and hold out for a bit more.
Interviewed at Long & Foster
Interview Details – They followed a pretty standard process. No human resources department personnel were involved. An initial phone screen and then an in person interview with the hiring manager only. Was introduced to other department leaders/managers but did not interview with any one other than hiring manager. Not a rigorous interview.
