    Application

    I applied online. The process took 2 weeksinterviewed at ZipRealty.

    Interview

    Contacted by a recruiter via email to set up a time to chat over the phone.
    Phone interview was relatively straight forward - started by describing the company structure in depth then asked questions about my past experience, skills, and compensation. It was more of a conversation than an interview. Said she'll forward my information to the head of recruiting and follow up with an email for an in-person interview.

    Application

    I applied online. The process took a dayinterviewed at ZipRealty in May 2014.

    Interview

    There isn't really an interview as much as there is a pitch to have you join the company. They assume you will be meeting several brokers and ask for your consideration to join the company. Their biggest push is that they have the most amazing software in the business (but they aren't the only company that claims that) that generates leads automatically and can report everything a registered user does.

    Interview Questions

    • There weren't any questions. Just an explanation of how they work.   Answer Question

    Negotiation

    Boss gave his pitch (which you could tell has been done many times before you) and said to think about it and let him know. I already knew I wanted to work there so it was easy.

    Difficult Interview

    Application

    I applied through an employee referral. The process took a weekinterviewed at ZipRealty (Emeryville, CA) in April 2013.

    Interview

    Originally had an phone interview with the hiring manager who was very nice and easy to talk to. That interview lead to a second phone interview with the project manager of the Zap team a few days later. The night after that phone interview, I got a call to schedule a in person interview for the next week. The in person interview took 2.5 hours with around 15 people total. I felt that I did pretty good but wasn't able to answer all of their technical questions. After the interview they said that they would be contacting me the next day. I never got a single call. I think it is pretty disrespectful to take much of an applicants time and not even give a call back informing them that they are looking for other candidates.

    Interview

    I applied and received a call back about a week later. I came in for an interview. The person working the front desk seemed very unhappy. They asked me personality/customer service questions regarding how you handle angry clients, how patient and thorough you are when explaining something to someone. Got a follow up call another week later and came in for a second interview with a higher up manager. New front desk person this time, just as unhappy. They gave me a short written test about basic computer knowledge and I received a job offer.
