    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.

    I applied online - interviewed at Equity Residential in June 2010.

    Meeting followed by telephone interview then to a formal interview. It was an easy process and was not difficult. It's a matter of wether you fit what they want in their particular region and office. Not friendly or approachable to candidates or even welcoming.

    Negotiation Details
    No room to negotiate, they were fixed on their offer and nothing else.

    Application Details

    I applied through an employee referral. The process took 1+ week - interviewed 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.
