    Incredibly transparent company. Empowers it's employees to do their best work. I've seen endless examples of our leadership soliciting feedback from the company, and then take action on areas of opportunity. Great company to work for.

    Average Interview


    I applied online. I interviewed at Zillow.


    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!
