    Difficult Interview

    Application

    I applied online. I interviewed at Zillow.

    Interview

    1st phone interview was with HR and went very well. I was invited to move on in the process and have another phone interview with the Regional Director. After that went well too, I was flown to Seattle for a corporate interview.

    Left one day, stayed in a very nice hotel, went through 4 interviews the next day, then hopped back on a plane only a few short hours later to go home. It was a whirlwind of an experience.

    Everyone was very nice, professional and I thought the interviews went perfectly. However, I was not offered the job.

    All expenses were submitted and paid for the trip.

    Not sure why I didn't get the job. I was extremely professional and prepared.

    Good luck to all who apply

    Associate Account Manager Interview

    Anonymous Employee in Seattle, WA
    Accepted Offer
    Positive Experience
    Difficult Interview

    Application

    I applied through college or university. The process took 2 weeks. I interviewed at Zillow (Seattle, WA) in April 2014.

    Interview

    Met a Zillow employee at a career fair in Los Angeles, and expressed interested in account management. He gave me his card and I sent him my resume/cover letter for him to forward along. 2 work days later I spoke with a recruiter who explained the details of the position. 2 work days after that I spoke with the director of the team and he invited me up to Seattle to interview for the position. I flew up the next week for the in-person interview process which is four 30 minute one-on-ones. 1st with the team director, then a team lead, then a team lead from a related team, and lastly a department exec. I got a call the next morning with an offer.

    Very casual and nice people. Do your research before hand. You should have well prepared answers for what you think Zillow is (hint: they are a media company), the duties of the role, your relative experience, and your personal goals/future.

    Interview Questions

    • The executive I interviewed with caught me off guard when he requested I pitch a phone app to him. Given that I was not interviewing for a sales position I had not prepared for any role playing. Nonetheless, I rolled with it and did fine. Being quick on your feet appears to be a skill they value.   Answer Question

    Negotiation

    Entry-level job. No negotiations.

    Associate Account Manager Interview

    Anonymous Employee in Irvine, CA
    Accepted Offer
    Positive Experience
    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 4+ weeks. I interviewed at Zillow (Irvine, CA) in July 2016.

    Interview

    I applied the beginning of June for the position. Was contacted by a recruiter who explained more about the position (Job, salary, work history, etc). I was then given 2 days to answer a few questions regarding your work ethic and situational examples that you face while at work. It's basically meant to see if your communication is strong via email. I was then set up with 4 face to face interviews down at the Irvine office; each one being extremely comfortable and easy going. I then waited a little over 2 weeks and was given (and accepted) the offer!

    From the moment you speak with someone from Zillow, you will want to be apart of this team! You are quickly welcomed by everyone. The work environment and team oriented aspect that Zillow provides makes you excited to get up everyday and head to work. Zillow invests greatly into their employees, something every company should take note of. I am blessed to be given such a great opportunity to team up with such a great company!

    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied through an employee referral. The process took 2 weeks. I interviewed at Zillow (Seattle, WA) in February 2017.

    The process was fairly fast paced. I had initial phone screen with the recruiter and the next business day I had a phone interview with the hiring manager. That same day they reached out to schedule an in-person interview.

    Almost exactly a week later, an offer was made.
