    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied through a recruiter. The process took a weekinterviewed at AvalonBay.

    Interview

    Asked you questions about what is on your resume. Interested in getting to know you and what you want out of the internship. Very calm interview. I didn't really need to prepare that much. The office is laid back and the people are nice, and that showed through the interviewer who is my boss' boss.

    Leasing Consultant Interview

    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 2+ monthsinterviewed at AvalonBay (Danbury, CT) in June 2015.

    Interview

    First I'll say if you do your research you'll find that this is a great company, however the process was very lengthy. I started out ( end of April) with the General Manager whom called me for a phone interview. I called back and for two weeks I couldn't get in touch with her. Finally, she emailed back and said they had taken an internal candidate but she would foward my information for a different position. I got a second call for an phone interview (in May) and was invited for a face to face with the Community Manager and Sales and Service Supervisor. I thought the interview went GREAT. But they too transferred in an internal candidate and forwarded my info to ANOTHER community. The last community I went to (in June) I had a phone and two face to face interviews. I thought they went well but the general manager never got back with me and finally after an email or two they stated they chose someone different. I opted not to continue to interview AGAIN with this company. The follow up is poor and I was exhausted from interviewing numerous times and getting push along to the next person.

    Application

    interviewed at AvalonBay (Somerset, NJ) in April 2015.

    Interview

    The interview process was very basic. They asked a lot for times when you've handled similar situations. They told me that they will update me as they continue to interview other possible candidates. I interviewed with two people, one did most of the talking though. They also had a lot of interviews going on that day specifically.
