    Application Details

    I applied through a staffing agency. The process took 2 weeksinterviewed at Redfin.

    Interview Details

    redfin is very particular in what type of person they bring onto their team, so they asked me mainly behavioral questions, such as "tell us a time you went above and beyond for a customer" and etc. i was submitted through a staffing agency and my recruiter kept saying "they want to hear a story, paint them a story." they also like to hear facts and stats about their company. i answered all questions in detail, but the recruiter i spoke to seemed very disinterested and unamused.

    Interview Details

    Spoke to a recruiter at career fair. Got a call.

    They ask you to point out how their website can be improved. They asked me how I would improve UI. It was a Skype call and the interviewer did not seem disappointed. However, I guess I did not answer well. Strangely they called up to tell I am not selected *sigh*

    Interview Details

    Had a phone interview with corporate office in Seattle. Once finished, followed up with an in person interview in local office with three staff members a week later. Communication was great during the process and after. Interview questions mostly revolved around problem solving and pleasing customers. Seems like everyone truly buys in to company core values and pleasing customers and changing the way real estate is transferred.

    Was contacted by a recruiter Maggie who had an extremely bad attitude , overall I don't recommend this company , their pay structure is terrible they will pay an agent a small salary and a small bonus and keep all the commission and base their structure on previous customers rating agents . You will be running around like chicken without a head for pennies

    I applied online – interviewed at Redfin.

    Interview Details

    I submitted an online application. Initially did not receive a response, but a few weeks later was contacted to do a technical interview over Skype. Interview was very typical - some questions about my interests and experience plus one coding question. Worked through the question over a Google doc and then was asked to discuss runtime and some test cases.

    Application Details

    I applied through an employee referral. The process took 2 weeksinterviewed at Redfin in November 2014.

    Interview Details

    Former coworker referred me to HR for an interview. Chatted with a recruiter on the phone about what I was looking for and which teams I would be interested in. Got invited to come into the office for a "phone screen" with an engineer which included a quick tour of the office as well.

    That was followed up with a full loop on site which consisted of 5 interviews and lunch. 3 of the interviews were standard coding questions, 1 code review style question, and 1 product design question.

    After about a week later I got an offer.

    Interview Details

    There was a Skype interview that lasted for around an hour. There were a couple behavioral questions and then she went into a coding problem. It was pretty easy but it took me a long time to figure out my simple bug. I think that killed my chances. Interviewer was really cool and overall the process is smooth.

    Applied online and then got a phone interview where a pretty basic CS question was asked. That was followed up by a round of on-site interviews (3-4) in which the questions were definitely more challenging. Overall a great experience

    Interview Details

    After initial phone interview, I was invited for an in person interview with the area manager. There was scheduling issues which led to a delay in arranging the in-person interview. Once everything was scheduled, it was a quick process from interview to job offer- took about a week to hear back. Over all very efficient and excellent communication through the entire process.

    Associate Agents are contracted. Make sure you mention if you're interested in possibly full time salary agent position if one opens up. I was told they primarily fill those positions through promotion of current AA's.
