    Consumer Care Advocate Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Seattle, WA
    Application Details

    I applied online. The process took a weekinterviewed at Zillow in December 2014.

    Interview Details

    Standard 2 hour interview process (4 interviews, 30 minutes each). No curve balls when it comes to questions, everything was very typical of any similar interview. Everyone was very organized and friendly, and all four interviewers seemed to ask mostly identical questions. The recruiter was great and made sure I had everything I needed. I wasn't offered a job, but it was one of the better interviews I've had and I left feeling confident and pleased with how things went. Overall a very positive experience!

    Advertising Manager Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate
    Anonymous Interview Candidate
    Application Details

    I applied online – interviewed at Zillow.

    Interview Details

    Extremely disorganized. Interview schedule was sent late then changed while en route to the interview. Sat at reception for 20 minutes before hiring manager appeared - she had been sitting in the interview room waiting for me. After the first interview, was left in conference room for 30 minutes and was standing to leave when next interviewer arrived. She was intensely rude and not remotely apologetic. After her next person arrived after 10 minute gap. No one offered water or a restroom. After 3rd interview sat for another 20 minutes before recruiter arrived flustered and sweaty to say I could go. Whole thing was odd and awkward. Sent email two days later thanking for the opportunity but that wasn't a good fit. Never got a response. Professional? Not remotely.

They just asked me to send code in a file, they don't use Hacker rank or any such tools. I did both and tested it well, but i got a rejection mail after three days. I have read similar experiences.
