    Average Interview


    I applied online. The process took 2+ months. I interviewed at Zillow.


    It was the worst interview exprience I have had with any company I ever interviewed for. My first conversation was with a HR who was very rude. She bluntly said unless I told her what I was making and expecting she wouldnt go ahead with passing my resume to the hiring manager. I decided to ignore her hoping it would just be a temporary phase. She immediately sent me a coding challenge which I completed and sent the next day. The way to make sure your code gets selected is to document very well and add unit tests to cover all possible cases. Also, make sure you send it in 24 hours. After 10 days they get back saying I passed the coding test and wanted to set up a phone interview. The hiring manager literally asked me to solve the problem for their project. It was a 1 hr session with me just thinking out loud to solve the problem. The same night I receive a mail saying that given the number of candidates they have , it would take 2 weeks to come back. 2 weeks later, when I checked with them saying I might receive another offer the HR said, given the number of candidates they have they will not go ahead with my candidacy. And for some mysterious reason I receive another mail a week later saying they would like to interview me again. I had a second phone interview which was pretty easy and they "confirmed" the reject the next day through an automated email. Super unprofessional hiring experience and I am glad I did not end up in that environment. I dont see myself applying to this company again. It was sheer waste of time applying to their opening.
