    Application

    I applied online. The process took 2 days. I interviewed at Douglas Emmett (Santa Monica, CA) in May 2015.

    Interview

    My interview process was expedited and very quick. I went in for my first interview on a Tuesday, met with the recruiter and then the Marketing Director. Then I came in for a second interview on Wednesday and met with the Chief Information Officer, and was offered the position at the end of that interview and started work the following Monday. This expedited process was a bit stressful in the moment, but ended up working really well for me.

    Interview Questions

    • I was asked a lot of questions, the standard, what are your strengths and weaknesses, and more technical stuff pertaining to the artistic nature of the job. I was given a marketing flyer and asked what steps I would use to create this flyer -- which I found very refreshing. It was nice to be able to interview with someone who could speak the artistic and technical language that I am accustomed to.   Answer Question

    I applied online. The process took a week. I interviewed 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.
