    Maintenance Supervisor Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate  in  Portland, OR
    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Portland, OR
    Application Details

    I applied online. The process took 2+ weeks - interviewed at Riverstone Residential Group in January 2010.

    Interview Details

    The hiring process was very involved with the back ground checks, reference checks and interviews. But the HR dept really worked well with me to communicate the process. My interview was well thought out, thorough and fun. Every promotion or transfer has been another interview. A few years ago they started using people answers which is horrible.

    Negotiation Details
    They definitely use every tr4ick in the book to get you to accept as little as possible. But stick to your guns and you will probably get what you are worth.

    Application Details

    I applied through an employee referral. The process took 2 weeks - interviewed at Riverstone Residential Group.

    Interview Details

    I had a phone interview with the Vice President, I then had an informal interview with group at the corporate level and was offered a position within a 1 weeks time. Overall the process was enjoyable and a lot easier than expected. On-site positions do tend to take a little more time than they should.

    Leasing Consultant Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate  in  Los Angeles, CA
    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Los Angeles, CA
    Application Details

    I applied through a recruiter. The process took 4 months - interviewed at Riverstone Residential Group in July 2014.

    Interview Details

    Met the recruiter at a career fair and then applied. The recruiter was nice and kept in touch with me but I waited for months for a property to call. Then I had to go through 4 interviews for an entry level job. I am a college graduate and wanted to know about the opportunities that the recruiter talked about but the on site staff obviously don't like people with an education, probably because they don't have one.

    Interview Questions
    • They were not prepared with any questions. I felt like they wanted to just put me down and be humiliating. The recruiter at my school had me excited, but the people at the apartments themselves did not live up to any of my expectations.   Answer Question
    Reasons for Declining

    There is no value given to my education. Leasing people don't even need to finish high school and I don't want to start at that level. I will find a company that wants to hire people with an education.

    Property Accountant Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate  in  Dallas, TX
    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Dallas, TX
    Application Details

    I applied through an employee referral. The process took 2 weeks - interviewed at Riverstone Residential Group in July 2012.

    Interview Details

    I was referred to the company by a current employee. I got a call to schedule an interview. I went to the interview and met with 2 different teams that were needing a Senior Property Accountant which is the job I applied for. I met first with 2 Controllers from 2 different teams and then with the 2 Accounting Managers from those teams. One team I liked and the other I didn't. The HR person that was facilitating the process was new and the most unprofessional, inexperienced HR recruiter I've ever worked with. That should have been my first red flag. I found out in less than a week that they wanted to make an offer. I asked for which team because I wasn't going to accept if it was for the team that I didn't feel I would enjoy working with. The HR recruiter told me it was for the team I liked. I asked for the benefits package information to review to make an informed decision. I also wanted to know about parking expense because I'd never worked anywhere that didn't provide free parking and I knew that I would have to pay for parking and needed to know what the options cost. The first packet of info the HR recruiter emailed me was incomplete and I had to ask more than once for the information I needed. Not only was she unhelpful in answering my questions but she also had an attitude as though she didn't feel she should have to answer any questions at all! That should have been red flag #2. When I finally decided to accept the offer, the offer letter had the name of the wrong team members on it. I asked her why that was and she said it was an error and I would be on the team I preferred. She sent a corrected offer letter with the right names which I signed and sent back to her. I ended up accepting a position as a Property Accountant instead of a Senior even though I was told I was interviewing for the Senior position I had applied for. That should have been red flag #3 and I should have ran in the opposite direction...but I didn't. When I showed up on the first day, I was introduced to a team of people I had never met headed by the Controller that I didn't want to work for! I was given the explanation that they decided to put me on a different team.

    Interview Questions
    • None of the questions were difficult or unexpected but there was a ridiculous accounting test and I had to complete a manual bank reconciliation that I later found out was the actual way they complete bank recons! Talk about antiquated! Any company that needs an accounting test isn't confident enough in the people they're hiring or they're own hiring abilities because if the position requires a degree and certain number of years' experience and that information is verified, there should be no need for an accounting test.   Answer Question
    Negotiation Details
    There was no negotiation phase; it was take it or leave it

    Interview Details

    The interview process was long. I interviewed at 3 properties in 3 weeks. Each one assured me they had a position for me. When I was finally hired, I started right away, but it took several weeks to get all of the sign ins and passwords that I needed to do my job.

    Application Details

    I applied online. The process took 2+ weeks - interviewed at Riverstone Residential Group in July 2013.

    Interview Details

    Hiring and interview process was a little slow due to multiple interviews scheduled with different people over a 2 week period. Process could be shortened and better organized.
    Very relaxed environment, making it comfortable to interview and put your best foot forward.
