I worked at Zillow full-timeRecommendsPositive OutlookRecommendsPositive Outlook
Free food, great people, laid back culture and atmosphere. The products are immeasurable and very easy to get to know in order to motivate and teach the public.
Not much availability to move around and/or up in the company quickly. I wish there was more motivational coaching to make more people leaders in the company.
Advice to Management
More leadership coaching will be key to increasing the success of the company overall. Amazon.com instills leadership principles and qualities from a model that I believe all companies should follow.

I applied online. The process took a week – interviewed at Zillow (Seattle, WA) in April 2015.
Talked with a recruiter for about 30 minutes regarding my past experience, interests, and why I want to work there. The conversation went well and I was told that my next steps would be to complete a coding exercise. I was a bit taken aback by the request for a take-home assignment, since it seems they ask you to do this before a technical screen or even putting the resume in front of the hiring manager. I would prefer that they do a phone screen before asking candidates with busy lives to spend a couple hours on a coding exercise.
After I submitted the coding solution, I was told that after the hiring manager reviewed my resume and coding exercise, they decided not to proceed.
