    Benefits Manager Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate
    Anonymous Interview Candidate
    Interview Details

    The interview and hiring process was accomplished quickly. I applied through a staffing agency and interviewed with the hiring manager, her boss and finally the staff. Interviewing with the staff was beneficial as it gave me insight to the team I would be working with and their needs and desires. Once I was selected for the job, there was a background check which was easy.

    Assistant General Manager Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Los Angeles, CA
    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Los Angeles, CA
    Application Details

    I applied through a recruiter – interviewed at Archstone.

    Interview Details

    I was recruited through LinkedIn and was casually looking for a new job at the time so I responded. I had a quick informational interview via phone and applied. What I am really disturbed about and why I am writing this today is that I just found out that they called a current co-worker of mine for a reference at some point in this process. Apparently he was a friend of a friend of someone in their company. I am incredibly offended by this, considering I was recruited and never even truly interviewed for the position; however, they alerted my current employer that I was interviewing with other companies. I don't care if it was off the record, it affected my employment, and the perception of my co-worker to me and I'm not happy about it. That is really bad practice. Beware when applying to this company, especially if you are only casually looking.

    IT Senior Software Developer Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Englewood, CO
    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Englewood, CO
    Application Details

    I applied online. The process took 3 daysinterviewed at Archstone in June 2012.

    Interview Details

    I was contacted by a recruiter for this position. A couple of phone calls later, we had an in-person interview.

    I was interviewed by the department director, the QA director, three software developers and a project manager. All four groups gave me conflicting information regarding the projects they were working on. Each group complained about the other group. There was obvious project management breakdown and little interest in fixing communications between the groups. The project manager seemed to be energized by conflict and impossible deadlines. She was very confrontational throughout the entire interview process.

    When the department director came back after all of the interviews, I told him exactly what I had experienced. He apologized repeatedly and (supposedly) clarified all of the conflicting information I received from each party.

    He was disinterested in the idea of making department communications better. He also admitted it was a bad environment and they needed help repairing their departmental/personnel conflicts.

    I was not offered the position, as I had expected. I would have turned it down anyway. This was a very poor experience and I feel really bad for the people working at this company.

    The project manager needs to be fired. Any resource who is energized by conflict is going to cause major problems; particularly disrupt productivity and moral.

    • How would you handle local caching of a web application in case you want that web application to run without an internet connection on the client? (I respond.) Oh, that's a good idea. But wait, we mean just for Chrome? (I respond.) Oh, that would work, too, but we are looking for something specific. (I respond.) Oh, we'll just tell you. You could use Local DB storage using HTML 5. (I respond.) Oh, we know you don't have HTML 5 experience, but we decided to ask the question and waste your time, as well as ours, to try to get a very specific answer out of you, but without giving you a specific question! Isn't this fun?   View Answer
