Inside Sales Consultant Interview

Anonymous Interview Candidate
Anonymous Interview Candidate
Application Details

I interviewed online. The process took 2 weeks - interviewed at Zillow in April 2014.

Interview Details

I went through 2 phone interviews before being asked to come in for the face-to-face interview. I am pretty sure the phone interviews were to evaluate your excitement level and phone voice before moving forward. (So have good energy) I had three interviews back to back. The first two were with floor managers. I was asked to sell something that I sold in my past job and WHY I WAS GOOD FOR ZILLOW! Then the final interview was with the OC office sales manager which was were the expectations of this job were clearly outlined. Intense interview but prepared me for the job.

    Application Details

    I interviewed online. The process took 2 weeks - interviewed at Zillow in July 2014.

    Interview Details

    Applied via LinkedIn and was contacted by an HR recruiter to set up a brief phone interview, which was a simple screen. Then I had a video interview which was a one-way skype - 20 seconds to prepare for a question that popped up on the screen. After that since I was an out of state applicant I had a phone screen with their sales manager. Was invited to Seattle to interview with two sales managers after that. My issue is I spent nearly $1,500 flying out there from Florida and all I got in return was a copy and paste generic email saying I didn't get the job. No reason, no explanation, nothing. Not a good sign of a good company, glad I didn't get the job. Seems like their product is getting tired, too. There's only so many agents. Stay away.

    Interview Questions
    • Interviewer asked me if I had more energy. Wanted to tell him I just spent $1,000 on a flight and flew all night to get there, seemed like an inappropriate interview question.   Answer Question

    I interviewed online. The process took 1+ week - interviewed at Zillow in December 2012.

    Interview Details

    Phone interview. Face to Face with three different managers. I felt like the interview process is a breeze if you just act natural. They are not looking for a rocket scientist. Zillow want's sales people that are comfortable in their own skin and not afraid to be told NO.

    I interviewed online. The process took 2 weeks - interviewed at Zillow in May 2013.

    Interview Details

    Apply online. E-mail response to set up a telephone interview. First interview lasted 10 minutes on the phone. At the end of this round, the Zillow rep asked me to go on to the second interview, which was a telephone interview also. End of that second telephone interview, John, the senior manager, said he'd get back to me within a week. 4 Minutes later was an e-mail invitation to set-up an in-person interview, which I did for the following week. All interview start to finish happened within 9 days and I had only applied for the position less than 2 weeks earlier.

    Phone interview followed up by office interview. Office interview was with 3 separate managers. They were very responsive and positive. I left the interview feeling very positive. Have questions ready as it is the best time to find out as much as possible about the culture as possible.

    I interviewed online. The process took 1+ week - interviewed at Zillow.

    Interview Details

    The first 3 pre-interviews went well with relatively normal interview questions. Then there was my final phone interview... The guy that interviewed me was a recently promoted sales director and seemed pissed off and put out that he had to talk to me. He was abrasive and had all of the charm of a used car salesman. He also made it seem like Zillow was just a factory for outbound phone calls saying that 150+ phone calls a day would be expected. Needless to say, it turned me off on him and Zillow in general.

    Interview Details

    3 step interview process. First a phone interview with the recruiter. Than a video interview which is difficult because it's similar to talking to a wall. Then, you are called into the office to meet with 2 sales managers and the VP of sales. The face to face interviews were horrible. I was put in a dark room (similar to an interrogation room) and waited long times in between each interview. The questions they give you are fast paced and they expect you know your stuff when it comes to sales.

    I interviewed online. The process took 1 week - interviewed at Zillow.

    Interview Details

    This was a pretty straightforward sales interview. HR phone interview, Sales Director Phone Interview, then in person interview with 2 sales managers and the sales director. Show enthusiasm, resiliency and that you're a hard worker. Those are important to you being successful in the position. Be prepared, research the company and be ready to sell something in the interview. They are very transparent, the job is not easy and they tell you that, but keep in mind all sales jobs are challenging. The interview process moves fast and they will make their decisions quickly.

    I interviewed online. The process took 1 week - interviewed at Zillow in March 2014.

    Interview Details

    several phone interviews, very high energy and good questions, then you're asked to come in for on site interviews. They emailed permission to complete my background check.(which I received in the mail, all clear) Then the three interviews, sales manager, hiring manager and director of sales. In the face to face there was very little energy nothing like the phone. This was the day after St. Patricks day. They looked beat up,

    Interview Questions
    • When the hiring manager asked me "why do you want to get out of the Real Estate industry?" I said I did not think I was getting out of the Real Estate industry, just switching focus to help agents. He quickly scolded me and I mean scolded " We are not a real estate company, we are a media advertising company".   View Answer
