    Application Details

    I applied in-person – interviewed at American Campus Communities.

    Interview Details

    Was given a test on technical skills. Once the test was completed I met with the maintenance manager while he reviewed it. Was told how I did, asked a few more follow up questions, nothing out of the ordinary. Was called for a second interview with the manager and had a short interview, again nothing out of the ordinary.

    Community Assistant Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Buffalo, NY
    Application Details

    I applied online. The process took 4+ weeksinterviewed at American Campus Communities.

    Interview Details

    Applied online and then received an email stating that they wanted me to come in for a group interview. It was really easy because you worked with everyone in the group interview to come up with a solution to a problem. I think they were just trying to see who was wiling to speak out loud and voice their opinions amongst the group and who was taking the leadership role. After the group interview I was contacted the next day to schedule for a individual interview. I went to the interview and they had cancelled it (I should have known then and there that this was not the company I wanted to work for). I rescheduled a week later and had my individual interview with the assistant managers. A week later I was contacted for another individual interview with the property manager. A week later I was hired.

    Community Assistant Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate
    Application Details

    I applied online – interviewed at American Campus Communities.

    Interview Details

    The interview process started with a group interview requiring potential candidates to solve a problem as a team. If you were asked back, you had a one-on-one interview with the General Manager and possibly AGM. That interview didn't last longer than 45 minutes, and it was more of a question/answer situation than a conversation. They took notes while I spoke.

    Interview Questions
    • I don't remember how it was phrased, but I had to talk about a time when I had to say no/use authority in a job and how I handled it.   Answer Question
    Negotiation Details
    No negotiation with this position. I was able to say when I could start.
