    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 3 days. I interviewed at Hines Interests Limited Partnership.

    Interview

    Someone scheduled a phone interview with me ask about my previous experience. The interviewer interrupted my answers a few times. At the end of the interview the interviewer told me that they mistakenly applied my information and thought that I was applying for another position which I am not interested in. They said I am not qualified for the Staff Accountant position that I originally applied for and ended the call quickly.

    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 2+ months. I interviewed at Hines Interests Limited Partnership (Seattle, WA).

    Interview

    I applied for the Assistant Property Manager and interviewed for that position twice. Had my application rerouted to another position. Interviewed for that one twice. Had my application rerouted again which Hines failed to inform me. So, interview number five, was for position number three and I walked into the room not knowing that. They called me in for a sixth interview and I withdrew my application at this point. I'm not interested in working for a company that was willing to waste my time so indiscriminately.

    Application

    I applied through a recruiter. The process took 2+ weeks. I interviewed at Hines Interests Limited Partnership.

    Interview

    I applied to this position through a recruiter. I had a phone interview and two in person interviews, one with the hiring manager and one with the hiring manager plus the operations manager. The interviewers were easy to talk with, and the questions were pretty straight forward. All thru out the process I was given the impression that they were interested in me for the position. I received a verbal offer from them and about a wee later and accepted the next day. They delayed getting the paperwork to me and then a couple days later rescinded the offer with a lame excuse.

    Application

    I applied through an employee referral. The process took 4+ weeks. I interviewed at Hines Interests Limited Partnership.

    Interview

    This was one of the easiest interview processes I've ever experienced. I never once felt nervous or like I was being judged. Ultimately, they look for a "good fit" in terms of personality and willingness to learn and grow. The initial phone interview was more formal, but the interviews with the actual hiring managers felt more like casual conversations. My hiring process took a little longer than normal because of some HR shuffling that needed to occur before it was official, but I always got the sense that we were moving forward.

    Interview Questions

    • You've never worked in this field of business before. Why are you interested in starting now?   1 Answer

    Negotiation

    Very easy. I gave a range that I had created using local salary data and what I thought was appropriate. They actually came back with the top number in my range, which was excellent.

    Application

    I applied through college or university. The process took 4+ weeks. I interviewed at Hines Interests Limited Partnership in September 2014.

    Interview

    Interviewed through campus recruiting. It was a pretty basic interview going through resume and interests in both real estate and the firm. One of the interviewers took a phone call during the middle and returned later. They did not seem like they wanted to be there. They ultimately withdrew the available position due to hiring needs and did not offer me the position.
