Leasing Consultant Interview

Anonymous Employee
Pleasanton, CA

I applied through an employee referral and the process took 1+ week - interviewed at Equity Residential in September 2013.

Interview Details – Through my interview process, I was kept up to date on follow up interviews, I got to see where I'd be working, and who I'd be working with (this is very important to me). I was notified of my job offer quickly. I did not bother negotiating hourly wage because I felt it was fair.

Interview Question – A resident comes in to complain that a sprinkler system sprayed a bit of water on their car. This resident demands we pay for a full $500.00 exterior AND interior detailing at a local luxury car wash, just because a bit of water was on his car. What do you do?   View Answer

The process took 1 week - interviewed at Equity Residential in May 2009.

Interview Details – I lived at the apartment originally and found out about the opening for a Leasing Consultant when I called the office for advice about a temp agency in the area. The Leasing Consultant at the time was getting promoted at another property and told me about the opening because of her leaving.

I applied online and the process took 3 weeks - interviewed at Equity Residential.

Interview Details – Applied online. There isn't really a way to do on paper anymore. Recruiter does a quick phone interview and mine was really nice. It wasn't too scary. Meeting with a manager was okay but they ask all of those dreadful "tell me about a time.." Next meeting is with regional manager but that was good too. It was more just to go over the previous interview and get to know my personality.

Interview Question – where do you see yourself in the next five years.   Answer Question
