    Real Estate Agent Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Portland, OR
    Accepted Offer
    Positive Experience
    Easy Interview


    I applied online. The process took 1 day. I interviewed at ZipRealty (Portland, OR).


    The interview process was courteous and professional. Yet because you're hired as an independent contractor, you're equally interviewing the brokerage as they are you. Interview was overall informative regarding the lead distribution and management system, but details regarding compensation were vague and should have been made more clear. It would have been more helpful to provide monetary figures relative to the average vs. top producers.
