    Positive Experience
    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online. I interviewed at Zillow (San Francisco, CA) in September 2014.

    Interview

    I had a wonderful experience with Zillow. I applied for a developer job in their San Francisco office and heard back within a couple of days. My first call was with a recruiter who spent time to understand my background and why I was interested in company. She clearly stated his the process worked so I felt happy. After I submmited a code and within a day was on a call with the director of technology! He challenged me with coding questions but made me quite excited about the possibility of working with the team. About a week later I was flown out for the interview where I was simply inspired by the group and role which I interviewed for. The day I got home the recruiter called and offered me the role! I am so exited to now work for Zillow

    Interview Questions

    • In addition to the coding questions I asked how I would interview potential new engineers as the team grew. How I would coach someone and how to give feedback   Answer Question

    Negotiation

    The offer was quite strong and they worked with me to match another offer I had. It was a very easy and non stressful experience. I wasn't pushed to give a answer on the spot but I have one since this was where I want to be

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 4+ weeks. I interviewed at Zillow (San Francisco, CA) in April 2014.

    Interview

    I applied for an Account Manager position and was responded to in a little over a week by a Zillow recruiter. We set up a phone screen and after that, I heard back quickly about speaking to the hiring manager. After speaking to the hiring manager on the phone, I was invited to go onsite to meet some members of the team. During my onsite, I met with two scheduled interviewers, talked to the hiring manager over the phone again, and two other people from another team were pulled in to meet me and ask me questions. After the in-person, I was scheduled to speak over the phone with a Director in Seattle, and then I was scheduled to speak on the phone with a Manager that this position would be working with the day after that. I received an offer two days after the call with the Manager. Overall, I felt like they were trying to see if I would be a good fit, culturally. I was asked lots of questions about what I like to do, what my hobbies are, etc. Everyone I spoke with was very nice and seemed to be pretty laid back.

    Interview Questions

    • I have held quite a few jobs over the past five years or so, (due to layoffs, contract work, etc.) and got a question about whether or not I would move on quickly from the company. It seems like loyalty is very important here, as they seem to really promote from within.   Answer Question

    Negotiation

    I was able to negotiate, but they were very clear with me in the initial phone screen what the range for the position was. HR was willing to take my counter-offer to the CEO and I did end up getting a little more than initially offered.
