    Associate Accountant Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Chicago, IL
    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Chicago, IL
    Application Details

    I applied online. The process took 5+ weeksinterviewed at General Growth Properties in March 2014.

    Interview Details

    Applied online: March 5
    Phone interview: March 13
    In-person interview: March 14

    The phone interview went nicely. The lady at HR was very nice and polite even though I did jump the gun sometimes and accidentally interrupted. One of the questions she asked was if I was planning to get my Masters and she did note that not all the Directors have CPAs but many have their Masters.

    After the in-person interview they said if I don't hear back for a few weeks, that they did not forget about me and they are still interviewing more people. I interviewed with four Property Accountants, 2 at a time, took about 1 hour. They were all very nice and at times, it was quiet, and I could feel a little awkwardness but not too much.

    I called for a follow-up on April 10 after not hearing anything and HR said another recruiter would be contacting me.
    Offer made on April 11.
    Start date May 1.

    I think the interview is naturally a long process because they have to consider your background and education before making an offer. When I asked how much the pay was, it was a range, and not just a number.

    • Why do you want to go into real estate? I was not expecting this question.   Answer Question
    Negotiation Details
    I really wanted this job and was overexcited and accepted right away. They offered me more than I expected and also more than my job (which I am overpaid in). She basically said, "After talking with the managers, we are willing to offer you this much, $xx,xxx, is this something you are okay with?"

    I applied through a recruiter. The process took a dayinterviewed at General Growth Properties.

    Interview Details

    I was contacted by an internal recruiter who found an old resume on the internet. The process was very straight forward. A phone interview, followed by about 2 hours of a series of interviews with different managers. An offer was made over the phone and details were ironed out in person. Straightforward as they come.

    Application Details

    The process took 8 weeksinterviewed at General Growth Properties in December 2011.

    Interview Details

    Initial interview w/ someone from corporate HR. Interview was fairly simple and relaxed. About three weeks later, I received a second interview with two people from mall management (one local and one state). Spoke about my background and how it's relevant to position. Brought samples of previous work to display my capabilities and give a clear idea of what I did at previous jobs as well as during my studies. The interview again was simple and very relaxed. Got my rejection letter :-( after several more weeks. Can't really pinpoint why I might have not offered the job except my salary requirements may have been too high.
