Our Journey Is Just Beginning

In 2012 Trulia went public, and then was acquired by Zillow Group in 2015 joining the biggest brands in rentals and real estate. Headquartered in downtown San Francisco, we’re focused on making Trulia a household name consumers love and depend on.

At Trulia, our people matter more than anything. By supporting and championing one another, we are building a company we can all be proud of.

We conduct an annual company-wide gender pay analysis and provide unconscious bias training to all Zillow Group managers to ensure our team members are treated with the respect and recognition they deserve.

Our employees are what makes our culture and our office a place worth coming back to, day after day. It’s what gives us the energy to wake up in the morning and the power to move fast and think big. We believe in helping our team members live full, balanced lives driven by flexibility and choice.

    I have been working at Trulia full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    The company is great to work for, they have great benefits, good compensation and an awesome culture, I recently became a parent and their support both personally and professionally is outstanding.

    Technology wise they are constantly trying to improve and have a lot of resources for growth.

    Finally they have the best diversity I've seen in my career, there is almost always at least a 50% female representation and in general all around welcoming to diversity.

    Cons

    They don't have everyday lunch.

    Advice to Management

    Keep up the great culture.

    Senior SEO Manager Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate
    No Offer
    Negative Experience
    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took a week. I interviewed at Trulia in April 2018.

    Interview

    Applied online and got selected for Phone Screening. Day & Time was decided after a couple of emails. Firstly, The HR completely forgot to call me but she was quick to realize her mistake and re-scheduled the call with me for next week.

    The phone screening went very well. She seemed impressed and just asked me about past experience and basic walk me through your resume type of questions. I was asked if I am interviewing for any other companies and when I said "Yes" I was assured that they will accelerate the next rounds and reach out to me in 1-2 days. We ended the call on a very good note and I was looking forward to the next steps.

    I even sent out a Thank you note the following day of my interview. 8 business days passed and there was no response/update. I followed-up via a quick email as the other companies were quickly moving forward and I was sent out a generic rejection message within 45mins. No feedback was provided.

    It is a waste of time interviewing for them if you have other offers or interviews lined up.
