    Application Details

    I applied online. The process took 2 weeksinterviewed at AvalonBay in October 2014.

    Interview Details

    Applied online, got a call 2 weeks later for brief phone interview then scheduled personal interview with property manager and leasing manager. Was not a very professional interview! Was asked only 3 questions. The leasing manager did not ask me one question, was there to just observe. She then tells me its more of customer service than leasing!? Got a call 2 weeks later from property manager saying they decided to go with an experienced candidate. Here's a thought! why even call me for an interview if I don't have any experience in leasing, then call and tell me that!? Why waste both of our time? Would NOT recommend this company. They go through leasing agents every 3 months. I have worked inside Avalon bay communities with other company's in multiple locations and observed this!!!!

    Application Details

    I applied online. The process took 4 daysinterviewed at AvalonBay.

    Interview Details

    I had a phone interview with a corporate recruiter. She had a good grasp of what the job was and what was required. My second interview was face to face with several people, including the VP of the department, someone currently doing the job I interviewed for and the office manager. There were many aspects of the job that were not disclosed to me. Overall, good experience. Benefits were clearly explained. Was also promised time off during first few months that never materialized.

    Negotiation Details
    No negotiation. I was told the salary range by the VP during the interview, offer was made by phone via recruiter. Offered low end of salary range, was told that was the best offer at the time.
