    Property Manager Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate
    Anonymous Interview Candidate
    Application Details

    I applied online. The process took 3+ monthsinterviewed at Windsor Communities.

    Interview Details

    Be prepared for a lot of interviews. You meet with HR, the regional manager and another manager and the VP for the region. Then there is psychological testing and personality testing and then of course background and drug testing. It's quite the process. In the end it's worth it but it proved very difficult because I was employed at the time so having to take time off work for the interviews was tough. They also ask you to drive to a property that you may not even be working at to meet the needs of the regional team.

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Baltimore, MD
    Application Details

    I applied online. The process took 2 weeksinterviewed at Windsor Communities in August 2014.

    Interview Details

    I applied online from the Windsor website and the next day the HR manager e-mailed to schedule a phone interview for the following day. After talking on the phone for 20 minutes she wanted to schedule an on-site interview with the divisional manager, which happened to be later that same day. I talked to two managers and it was very conversational and easy-going. They were very warm and welcoming and it was not stressful.
     The next day I was contacted to schedule an interview with the site manager for the site I would be potentially working at, which happened a few days later. Again, very welcoming, she asked me a few questions and we went over my education/experience and then she took me on a tour of the site. Two days later I received and offer letter.

    Marketing Representative Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in North Providence, RI
    Anonymous Interview Candidate in North Providence, RI
    Application Details

    I applied online. The process took a weekinterviewed at Windsor Communities in May 2014.

    Interview Details

    I was contacted through email, after having submitted a resume, and invited to a phone interview. The phone interview was brief but went well and I was later invited to an in person interview. That interview was filled with your general interview questions, I was given a tour through the location and everything went very well. It was even stated during the interview, that they liked my qualifications for the role and that they wanted to set up another interview. I was given a date and asked if it would be okay for me. When I agreed I was told that they weren't sure of the time that the interviewer would be available on that day, so I was told they would be in touch to update me with a time. I was given the interviewers business card and we parted ways.

    I was excited following the meeting, thinking that I had a good shot at this position. Well the day that I had been given had come and gone, still no contact. I tried reaching out through email, received no contact. I tried calling and got one of the other employees. I explained why I was calling and they went to speak with the person I had interviewed with. I was advised they were in a meeting and would get back to me. No contact again for the rest of that day, and then the following day I received an email with the first person that I had the phone interview with explaining that they were moving forward with another candidate.

    Needless to say I was very upset. I don't feel like this was handled professionally at all. I understand that not everyone is the right fit for a position, but to be told directly that I was to have a follow up interview and then essentially ignored was, in my eyes, very unprofessional.

    Interview Details

    After applying online I was contacted to schedule a phone interview with an HR Rep. The phone interview was very basic, asking questions about my education and experience. I was then contacted for a face to face interview.

    I interviewed with 3 different people, about 30 minutes each. The questions were more based on past experiences and the managers were all very friendly and easy going.

    After a few days, I was contacted with an offer, pending criminal background and a drug test. The whole process was very quick and painless.
