    Negative Experience
    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied through an employee referral. The process took 2 weeksinterviewed at American Appraisal (Milwaukee, WI) in September 2010.

    Interview

    Pretty basic interview. Management thinks they are pretty hot stuff. They lean back in their chairs, play with their hair and act like they are gods and employees are their minions. "I'm gonna give it to you straight..." That's your first warning that they are feeding you a load of BS. They ask dumb questions. I'll always remember when I was asked, "Do you like buildings?"

    Interview Questions

    • "Do you like buildings?" No difficult questions, just dumb questions. They are just looking for bodies to burn and turn. If you can present yourself well, you can get the job.   Answer Question

    Negotiation

    They offered what I was expecting.

    Negative Experience
    Difficult Interview

    Application

    I applied through an employee referral. The process took 1 dayinterviewed at American Appraisal (Milwaukee, WI) in June 2010.

    Interview

    Was supposed to meet with one person and was handed off to another. The original person had a "pressing engagement." The second person was not prepared for the interview and it seemed he was with a department other than the one I was interviewing with. The questions were very generic. We were interrupted two or three times by his admin asst. Not a good experience. Lasted about an hour and a half. Without the interruptions, it would have lasted about forty minutes tops.

    Interview Questions

    • All the questions were right out of "Interview 101". Why do you want to work here? - What do you bring to the able (Yes, he did say bring to the table) - What are your salary needs   Answer Question

    Difficult Interview

    Application

    I applied through a staffing agency – interviewed at American Appraisal.

    Interview

    Tough Interview, the former technical director was keen on knowing the exact level of technical accuracy from the candidate, as well as how such attributes would help the company in terms of profitability and technical excellence. All types of projects were subject to scrutiny, as well as past experiences considering team management, multi-project tasking, work performed, results achieved and feedback from clients. Specifically, I was requested to describe in details the methodology descriptions for appraisals (valuations, PPA, etc.).

    Positive Experience
    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied through other source. The process took 2+ weeksinterviewed at American Appraisal (Athens (Greece)).

    Interview

    I was called upon an initial interview, followed by a second one. Overall not a bad experience, the prospective job duties were discussed in detail and a direct reference was made to salary and compensation. A bit formal at first, it didn't hinder effective communication.

    Interview Questions

    • There were no "trap" questions, still I was thoroughly asked to describe previous experience. Emphasis was given on my ability for effective teamwork   Answer Question

    Negotiation

    Rather short! I was initially offered a fair market tag for a salary and they didn;t seem flexible in discussing it further

    Appraiser Interview

    Easy Interview

    Application

    The process took 1 dayinterviewed at American Appraisal in March 2010.

    Interview

    Got the interview by submitting through school job search database. The interview was also held at the school career center. The interviewer asks you questions about your personality and others that look at your thinking processes, character, etc. The job asks you to travel a majority of the time. You're independent and have to type up reports on the laptop. If you have experience in construction, it's a definite plus. You have a salary and it's not commissioned. When it came time to ask the questions, that's when my perception of the company got turned off. It's fairly typical to research about the company online and use that to ask questions during the interview, which I did. During my question about the company's image, I was cut off and was told a blunt answer; one of those "wrap it up" type of questions. They were going through a company image change at the time so I wanted to clarify that. I wouldn't recommend this as a full-time job for any college graduate. If you have experience in construction, or anything that relates to that trade, then go for it. But if you're finance, or anything relating to business, move on.
