    Executive Assistant Interview

    Anonymous Employee in Birmingham, AL
    Accepted Offer
    Positive Experience
    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied in-person. The process took a week. I interviewed at Colonial Properties Trust (Birmingham, AL).

    Interview

    I contacted the company via networking based on a prior work relationship. They happened to have a position open that would fit my experience and skill set. They then contacted me for an interview. I spoke to three supervisors in two separate interviews. I also took two online skill tests for Excel and Word.

    Negotiation

    They offered a reasonable salary so I accepted.

    Average Interview

    Application

    The process took 3 days. I interviewed at Colonial Properties Trust (Charlotte, NC) in April 2011.

    Interview

    Wonderful! They are nice and very honest about what they're looking for. If you're not it, you wouldn't have even gotten an interview. For them, selection is so precise that interviews are more like formalities to confirm what they already know!

    Interview Questions

    Negotiation

    yes, I would say look up what they offer, and then gently ask for a higher estimate. Don't be ridiculously high.

    Property Manager Interview

    Anonymous Employee
    Accepted Offer
    Neutral Experience
    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 2 weeks. I interviewed at Colonial Properties Trust.

    Interview

    They run ads that get picked up by Indeed.com. You apply via their company website. If you are chosen to interview there is an online test that you take. The RVP told me to "Google" any problems that I got stumped on as that is what she did!! Really? what's the point.... I have amazing references, but not one of them was called during the hiring process so I guess you don't have to be crazy honest with your credentials.

    Interview Questions

    • RVP wasn't the best interviewer as she talked the whole time and really didn't ask many questions, and pretty much just detailed the job description and duties while she "multitasked" on her Blackberry, iPod, iPad, and Laptop......all at the same time and again, I kid you know.   Answer Question

    Leasing Specialist Interview

    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 4 days. I interviewed at Colonial Properties Trust in April 2009.

    Interview

    After applying and submitting my resume, I was asked to take an online assessment. The assessment consists of everything from math, grammer to personality. It was very tedious and took at least an hour. Upon successful completion of the assessment, I had an interview with the property manager. The questions were very general, but somewhat repetitive (alot like the online personality assessment). I'm not sure if the questions were standard or just the approach that this particular PM chose. After we finished the interview, the PM asked me to come back the following day for a second interview with a PM from a different complex. The first interview given by the hiring PM lasted close to an hour while the second one only lasted about 15 minutes. Each step is to 'weed out' candidates. For the assessment, the PM said that consistency is most important. There is actually a score from 1-10 based on how consistent the candidate is in answering their questions. If the score on consistency is low, a candidate most likely will not be asked for an interview.
