    Team Lead Interview

    Anonymous Employee in Phoenix, AZ (US)
    Accepted Offer
    Positive Experience
    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 4+ weeks. I interviewed at Zillow (Phoenix, AZ (US)) in September 2020.

    Interview

    Great communication. Laid out expectations and time lines. Even gave some interview pre material. The interviews were informative and well structured. They were also consistent. The loop interview was long, but it was a positive experience. It allows the candidate to get multiple points of view of the company. Most questions are behavior or situational based questions.

    Software Engineer Interview

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

    Application

    I applied through an employee referral. I interviewed at Zillow (Seattle, WA (US)) in August 2020.

    Interview

    Got a prep phone call from a recruiter and then a technical phone interview the next week.

    The technical phone interview was done on hackerrank, the question itself was of medium difficulty.

    I got really close to solving the problem but had an off-by-one error at the very end. When I tried to ask for a little guidance I was told that I could run the code on hackerrank, that wasn't particularly useful.

    I couldn't help but feel bad after the interview because it felt like the interviewer silently watched me struggle and didn't offer any hints or feedback. And I was very close to solving the problem, it seemed like only a little guidance was needed.

    I hope for future candidates that Zillow will either have interviewers offer a hint or two during the interview or give the coding problem straight from hackerrank without an interviewer, that way you don't have to concern yourself with talking to the interviewer and that whole process. I hope this feedback will be taken into consideration.

    A couple days after the interview I got the rejection email.

    Interview

    They won’t hire you if you are not white, especially at the Seattle office. Do not bother. During COVID, forget it if you’re Asian. Like so many companies in the Seattle area, they prefer to hire white.

    Interview

    HR recruitment was very transparent and helpful during each step of the interview. I was provided updates along the way and periodic check-ins. All of my interviewers had different questions and were all a little different in their approaches to establishing rapport, and offering follow-up questions.

    Corporate Counsel Interview

    Anonymous Employee in Seattle, WA (US)
    Accepted Offer
    Positive Experience
    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 3 weeks. I interviewed at Zillow (Seattle, WA (US)) in July 2020.

    Interview

    Best interview process I've experienced in my career. Zillow's Senior Recruiter was very kind and communicative throughout. Timelines and expectations were always clear. I was very excited by the idea of working at Zillow, but even more so after speaking with the recruiter and the rest of the team. The recruiter sent along helpful interview prep materials. The team asked formal, behavioral questions, especially relating to my past experience and Zillow's core values, but also left room for more informal conversation and questions on my end. I also had to complete a contract review assignment (standard for this field). They were transparent about the benefits and compensation, which I appreciated.

    Generally, I felt very valued as a candidate, which seems to be in line with the way Zillow values its employees, and which led to my ultimate decision to accept the offer. After I accepted the offer, my hiring manager and my recruiter continued to provide important and helpful support during my transition from my former employer, and members of my future team reached out with kind messages. The interview process was a lovely experience overall and a positive signal for future life at Zillow. Can't wait :)

    Senior Software Engineer Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in San Mateo, CA (US)
    Declined Offer
    Negative Experience
    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied through a recruiter. The process took 3 days. I interviewed at Zillow (San Mateo, CA (US)).

    Interview

    Applied online and recruiter asked me to setup time for a call. In the call the recruiter says that she does not have a green light to hire for the position yet and will reach out at a later point. If she knew this why did she set up the meeting and waste my time ? Very unprofessional.
