    Difficult Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 5+ weeksinterviewed at General Growth Properties (Chicago, IL) in March 2014.

    Interview

    Applied online: March 5
    Phone interview: March 13
    In-person interview: March 14

    The phone interview went nicely. The lady at HR was very nice and polite even though I did jump the gun sometimes and accidentally interrupted. One of the questions she asked was if I was planning to get my Masters and she did note that not all the Directors have CPAs but many have their Masters.

    After the in-person interview they said if I don't hear back for a few weeks, that they did not forget about me and they are still interviewing more people. I interviewed with four Property Accountants, 2 at a time, took about 1 hour. They were all very nice and at times, it was quiet, and I could feel a little awkwardness but not too much.

    I called for a follow-up on April 10 after not hearing anything and HR said another recruiter would be contacting me.
    Offer made on April 11.
    Start date May 1.

    I think the interview is naturally a long process because they have to consider your background and education before making an offer. When I asked how much the pay was, it was a range, and not just a number.

    Interview Questions

    • Why do you want to go into real estate? I was not expecting this question.   Answer Question

    Negotiation

    I really wanted this job and was overexcited and accepted right away. They offered me more than I expected and also more than my job (which I am overpaid in). She basically said, "After talking with the managers, we are willing to offer you this much, $xx,xxx, is this something you are okay with?"

    Application

    I applied through a recruiter. The process took a dayinterviewed at General Growth Properties (Chicago, IL).

    Interview

    I was contacted by an internal recruiter who found an old resume on the internet. The process was very straight forward. A phone interview, followed by about 2 hours of a series of interviews with different managers. An offer was made over the phone and details were ironed out in person. Straightforward as they come.

    The process was rather easy. They flew me to Chicago the night before. I walked to the office and met with HR. They escorted me to the hiring manager. We spoke for about 1 hour and I left. By the time I reached the airport, I had an offer extended, and the job was excepted.
