    Service Manager Interview

    Interview Details

    They tend to promote from within to save in the salary department. When an employee is being paid 19.00 an hour and a 2-3 dollar raise can be given, the employee feels as though they are being taken care of. But the work position they are being put in, they are highly underpaid.

    Application Details

    I applied through an employee referral. The process took 1+ weekinterviewed at Equity Residential in September 2013.

    Interview Details

    Through my interview process, I was kept up to date on follow up interviews, I got to see where I'd be working, and who I'd be working with (this is very important to me). I was notified of my job offer quickly. I did not bother negotiating hourly wage because I felt it was fair.

    Equity Residential Interview

    Application Details

    I applied through other source – interviewed at Equity Residential.

    Interview Details

    No interview process as Equity Residential merged (took over) the prior local property management company. However, I had the opportunity to be closely involved with the Human Resource Department (which gave no support to the actual properties in any effective form, with the exception of a few recruiters). Yet, the company matrix system provides a significant bonus for employee retention and provides many other tools to hire, train, and retain the "right" team member,

    Concierge Interview

    Application Details

    I applied online. The process took 3 weeksinterviewed at Equity Residential in February 2012.

    Interview Details

    The process has been very professional and pleasant so far starting from the application which was done online through the company website. I received the first call approx a week later after submitting my application asking me to go in for an interview. After hanging up, the interviewing manager sent me an e-mail right away confirming the place and time of the interview. The interviews went smoothly and I did not feel like they were interrogating me. When they said they would give me a call, they really did. That is something a lot of employers do not care enough to do anymore especially in this economy.
