Sales (Former Employee) – Seattle, WA – January 22, 2016
If this is absolutely your last option take it. Terrible managment, training and culture. You'll see plenty of cool aid drinkers who review Zillow but frankly don't know any better. Do yourself a favor and keep looking.
Analyst Level (Current Employee) – Seattle, WA – December 22, 2015
A Non-Sales Viewpoint: ZIllow has a great culture and is full of amazing and intelligent people. If you want to work in a tech job with great work/life balance, amazing benefits, while surrounded by smart people, you should work at Zillow.
Hardest Part: The technical challenges. I think this should be the hardest part, because you aren't learning anything otherwise.
Most Enjoyable: Free lunches, co-workers, solving challenging problems.
ps- The CEO is awesome, everyone loves him!!
401k match, free lunch, game rooms, standing desks, candy wall

Zillow is a company with an amazing culture that really knows how to reward and create incentive for its employees. Management is very good at what they do and help push you to new limits. The nature of inside sales however is very tough to say the least and incredibly challenging every day.
Free lunches, great management, good benefits and awesome culture
Account Executive (Former Employee) – Seattle, WA – October 31, 2013
Zillow is a place where you are surrounded by intelligent motivated people and a great environment to come to work every day. Zillow does not just pay lip service to the importance of culture and the management is continually looking for better ways to serve it's employees. The best part of coming to work every day was knowing that I was selling something that would make a difference in the business of my customers and Zillow allowed me to run my business within the business.
Not Hired (Former Employee) – Whittier, CA – April 27, 2013
The interview process with this company is really suspect in my opinion. I come from a serious Real Estate Advertising background, and this is what Zillow claims to do as a business, but did not get a serious look. Actually could have delivered large accounts to them with my expertise, but just had the general human resources interview (which was the only good part about this company) and then a stock "people more qualified" rejection notice. I do not know anyone more qualified then me for the sales position. Stay away from this place.
The human resources interview
Looks like real problems in the sales management department
Inside Sales (Current Employee) – Irvine – March 20, 2013
This is not the place for negative nellys or worry warts! If you are proned to doubt and fear, SALES in general is not a good fit.
So There are some annoyingly competitive and negative ppl that work or have worked at zillow but they never last.
The high turn over is due to the fact that at zillow you are given a lot of free and fun stuff but alot of work is required of you. If you have bad energy and hate to work hard this is not the job for you. The cream of the crop reps and management are awesome. Genuinely good ppl. Benefits are the best I have ever had and I have had GREAT benefits before. Also I love the entreprenuerial atmosphere and how you get paid large commission checks and bonuses for helping Agents make lots of money. I love getting calls from clients who follow protocol and cash big checks from zillow.
Looking for a good career? Love Sales? Zillow is the a great option.
great benefits, free lunch, bonuses, large commission, great base, company stock plan, retirement account, good vacation time off
sales ppl are loud and annoying ruthless and competitive
Inside Sales Representative (Current Employee) – Irvine, CA – March 4, 2013
It's a glorified telemarketing position. Be prepared to work 10 hour days if you plan to have success. Pay sucks unless your are 200% to goal. Then it's acceptable for amound of BS you have to put yourself through to make that happen.
