I applied in-person and the process took 1 week - interviewed at Weichert Realtors in October 2013.
Interview Details – 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 Question – 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
Reason 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.

Interview Details – The first step is a pre-screening phone interview that is very brief. I then went in and met with two people, both one-on-one, for the first round of interviews.
