    The process took 2 daysinterviewed at Douglas Emmett.

    Interview

    The entire interview process was smooth. Each person who I came across, and especially the receptionist, received me warmly. Once I met the recruiter, she asked a few questions about myself and my experience. She then had me complete a skills test, which was brief but challenging. The process was standard with no kinks, the staff made it seamless and I appreciate it.

    I applied online. The process took a weekinterviewed at Douglas Emmett (Santa Monica, CA) in March 2015.

    Interview

    The interview process was very straight forward a major component is customer service and great communication skills. I interviewed with the recruiter which was basically to test my communication skills and ability to respond efficiently; I also met with the human resource manager who discussed some company information ( None of these actually felt like an interview). I then was called back to interview with the director whom interviewed me, I honestly felt like it was going horribly because you can't read her vibes. Then to my surprise she asked me if I had time to meet the Property manager that same day and I also interviewed with her. My interview with the property manager went awesome and we connected very well, I left feeling very good about the interviews.

    Interview

    Applied to a Monster job ad and I got a phone call from a HR rep the same day and scheduled an interview for that Thursday of the week. At the interview, I first met with the HR rep and he showed me to the conference room and gave me some advice about the interview. Then the Director of Design & Construction met with me and she conducted the interview. She asked me some questions about interior design and explained the position in more detail. After the interview concluded, she wanted me to meet with the COO the same day, but unfortunately he was not available to meet at that given time. I rescheduled to meet with him the following day.

    The second interview were both with the COO and the Director of Design & Construction. The COO asked me if I understood what the position entails and about my compensation. T
