    Pros

    Training, agent preparedness, technology driven, leads-a-plenty, dynamic culture, benefits. Redfin offers some of the best agent training resources and crowd sourcing development in the industry. It's state of the art platform is impressive and they constantly improve based on feedback from clients and the agents who use it. Leads are assigned daily and there is no shortage of busy-ness.

    Cons

    Poor work-life balance, lowest pay in the industry, managers are inexperienced at managing people, high focus on volume and performance metrics and short sighted on quality. 60-80 hours per week is the average agent schedule between office time, showing appointments, open houses and managing the pipeline of constantly flowing clients. Its hard to balance quality of life and the team managers offer little support. Managers lack the skill of people managing and focus more on beating metric performance. Turn over is high as result.

    Advice to Management

    Hire managers not only with years and years of industry success but also those with solid skills to manage teams and a focus on cultivating success through good people management. Managers should not be representing clients - ever. It's a conflict of interest to the team members and drives down moral.

    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied through a recruiter. The process took 1 day. I interviewed at Redfin (Wayne, PA (US)) in July 2017.

    Interview

    There was a "screener" call from the recruiter who scheduled my interview which was two separate interviews back to back. They took alot of notes about my responses. There were a lot of example questions in which they wanted me to "Tell them about a time..."
