    Software Engineer Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Seattle, WA
    No Offer
    Negative Experience
    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied through a recruiter. The process took 4+ weeks. I interviewed at Zillow (Seattle, WA).

    Interview

    Had a first-round telephone interview, and then I was brought in for an on-site that lasted about 4 1/2 hours with 5 people (3 technical rounds).

    This position was also listed as a remote opportunity, but they changed it to on-site at the last minute. I was extremely excited about this position until that happened. Zillow is an open-office environment. No one (not even managers) has their own office. As an introvert, my stomach sank when I toured the floor. I'm betting companies like Zillow are missing out on a lot of talent by having this setup and not allowing remote work. Open offices are not for everyone.

    Interview Questions

    • Imagine you are trying to cross a stream full of rocks. Write an algorithm to determine if you can make it to the other side with the following assumptions:
      1) A rock is represented as a 1, water is represented as 0, so a stream of rocks could be represented as [1,1,1,0,0,1,0,1]
      2) With each jump to a rock, the next maximum distance you can jump is equal to the previous jump + 1. So starting out, you can only jump from index 0 to index 1 (if there's a rock at index 1). Then from index 1, you can jump to index 2 or 3 (if there's a rock). Then from index 2, you can jump to 3,4, or 5, etc.

    Designer Interview

    Negative Experience
    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online. I interviewed at Zillow.

    Interview

    My phone interview was cancelled last minute by the Creative Director and I was not informed until after waiting 15 mins for the call and reaching out to the recruiting team. I was rescheduled for a later time that day but he seemed extremely busy and rushed since he only had 15 minutes to talk. The next day I received an automated message that I didn't get the position. I felt like I wasn't even given a chance to fully interview. Hope Zillow does a better job of planning for future situations like this!

    Difficult Interview

    Application

    The process took 3 weeks. I interviewed at Zillow (New York, NY).

    Interview

    Zillow has an extensive interview process. They are a great company that built their success around collaboration and culture. I got an email from a sales recruiter to set a pbone interview. During that call I was asked basic skill set and culture questions. I was called back to set another phone interview with the Training and education Director in Seattle. I did my research and had a great conversation with him. He set a 3rd interview with the sales manager in the office I would work out of. In the end I was a great culture fit however I was slightly under qualified for the position

    Client Engagement Specialist Interview

    Positive Experience
    Average Interview

    Application

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

    Interview

    The entire process was extremely efficient and straight forward. I had previously applied for another position and was not selected, but that experience only increased my interest in working for Zillow. The process started with a phone screen with a recruiter who went into great detail of the role and expectations . She was very friendly and it was pleasant conversation. Next was the on site interview which lasted just over an hour. The gentlemen I spoke with were very friendly and really made the interview comfortable. They definitely asked interview questions, but it was more of a conversation about the department and my experience. I had several questions and they had great answers to everything I asked. Later that day I was asked to schedule a phone interview with the manager of the position I was applying for. He was very friendly, apologized that he was out of town for my onsite interview and asked a few questions to get to know me. He was very easy to talk to and we had a great conversation. About an hour later I was told I was selected for the position! They definitely don't waste any time. I am very grateful every person who I spoke with throughout the entire process was welcoming and genuinely nice.
