    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 3 days. I interviewed at Weichert Realtors (Sewell, NJ) in February 2015.

    Interview

    I scheduled first a phone call then with the hiring manager then an in person meeting with the branch manager. Both were very nice. The branch manager was very informative and extremely enthusiastic about her role. I am still deciding on whether to accept but overall I very much liked the people. I am eager to learn more about the company.

    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 1 day. I interviewed at Weichert Realtors (Fairfax, VA) in November 2014.

    Interview

    Fairfax, VA - Very long and boring at times. I was shocked when I was explained that they monitor your phone calls and expect you to put out 5 calls a day. I told to bring my own network and lists to call from. All the fees were more than other companies I interviewed with. I was very turned off.

    Real Estate Agent Interview

    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied in-person. The process took a week. I interviewed at Weichert Realtors (Dallas, TX) in October 2013.

    Interview

    The interview process was quite informative and the office manger did a good job of promoting the company and it's systems. While the marketing and sales support materials were first-rate, the manager was not totally forthcoming about all aspects of compensation. She made much of Weichert's lead generation system, which does seem quite sophisticated, but neglected to mention that the agency charges a 35% referral fee for every closing from leads generated by the system. This greatly reduces the agent's commission on every such lead and severely undermines the value of the system to the agents. Although I was enthusiastic about this aspect of the company during the interview, finding out about the referral fee completely undermined its value as an incentive to join the company as an agent

    Interview Questions

    • The interviewer did not ask any particularly difficult or unexpected questions. In fact, she told me that in my spontaneous conversation I had answered virtually all of the questions she was planning to ask. The only specific question she asked was how much I expected to earn after 2 years with the company   Answer Question

    Reasons for Declining

    The starting broker split (50/50) was significantly lower than that offered by most other agencies with whom I interviewed (typically 70/30); the franchise fee was higher (8% compared to 6% with other franchise brokers), and the excessive 35% referral fee for company generated leads completely undermined one of the centerpieces of their pitch to prospective employees. With the lower commission split and the franchise and referral fees, a new agent would make only 7% commission on any sales from leads generated by the Weichert lead system, compared to 64-70% with other brokers. That was a deal-breaker for me.

    I was contacted by someone from HR department (NJ headquarter) in September 2013. He has been found my resume on Indeed, saw some experience in Real Estate in another country and proposed me to talk to a Managing Broker from my area about a Sales Associate opportunity. I was transferred immediately by phone to a Branch Manager and after that to a Sales Manager who asked me for a face to face meeting after 2-3 days. After a short review of my resume the Sales Manager told me than I'm exactly what they want and scheduled me for 60 hours pre-licensing classes for October - November 2013 for only $99. I started to work full-time in January, but I don't received any support from nobody, but I have: office fees; leads fee (for clients received from call center); a mentor fee; post-licensing education (mandatory); overhead in NJ; advertising to generate business; membership in 3 professional organisations; errors & omission insurance; MLS access; SentriCard & SentriLocks etc.
