I applied through an employee referral and the process took 4 weeks - interviewed at Yardi Systems in October 2013.
Interview Details –
Interview process consisted of two parts. The first was a job fair involving two speed interviews and some comprehension skill tests. Interviews were very narrow in scope, primarily used to process and confirm application and resume' information. Testing involved a short lecture/presentation and then a followup quiz to test retention, along with a series of questions to gauge elementary mathematical/accounting skills.
The second call back interview was in depth panel style interviews. Questions ranged from accounting to IT. This was a two part interview process, with two senior managers each time. Questions were not overly difficult if you were familiar with accounting and IT. Do not be surprised to see very senior executives in these interviews, one of my interviews was with the VP and GM.
I applied online and the process took 1 week - interviewed at Yardi Systems.
Interview Details – They send an email referring to a job fair - this is the beginning of the interview process.
Interview Question –
My most interesting question would have to be the ‘light bulb switch’ scenario, asked during my interview with Yardi.
Question: You are standing outside a room next to three switches, all of which are off. Each switch operates a different light bulb in the room. The room door is closed, so you cannot see which switch operates which bulb. You are only allowed to go into the room once. Determine which switch operates which bulb. View Answer
Negotiation Details – no negotiation - hire group - same salary
I applied online and the process took 2+ weeks - interviewed at Yardi Systems in August 2012.
Interview Details – There was an initial, brief interview after I submitted my resume (it took a few months from my resume submission for me to hear from them), After I passed that, I went through a series of written questions and longer interviews with pairs of team leads/managers during the second round of interviews. A written letter to client was also required to be submitted.
Interview Question – Questions about different types of accounting, cash books vs. accrual books, etc. Answer Question
Negotiation Details – There was little to no room for negotiation.
I applied online and the process took 2 days - interviewed at Yardi Systems in March 2012.
Interview Details –
Applied online, received an email invitation to a career fair. At the fair, you are introduced to the company and given a chance to ask questions. There is also a short skills and intelligence test to take. Then I participated in a 1 on 1 interview which went extremely well.
Got invited to a second interview the following week, this time for 3 separate interviews with 2 managers at a time. Yardi puts a strong effort in getting to know the candidate and ensuring that he/she is the right fit, so it was much of an opportunity for me to interview them as vice versa.
Safe to say, it went well. I received a call and a job offer within a few days.
Interview Question – What made you interested in Yardi Systems? Answer Question
I applied online and the process took 2 months - interviewed at Yardi Systems in December 2011.
Interview Details – While applying for one or more positions at the company, the actual interview process consisted of two interviews, each with two managers from different departments. The interview appeared to be more of managers looking for a particular skill set/character than a specific job title, and initial understanding of which job I was being interviewed for was unclear. Afterwards a four-part test was administered, covering accounting, SQL and database/programming knowledge, and a logic/intelligence section.
Interview Question – I had done a fair amount of preparation as well as an informational interview with a current employee, so I felt there was nothing terribly difficult or unexpected. I did feel there was a strong desire and understanding that because of the investment Yardi makes in its employees that the interview was as much about making sure I was a good fit for the company and vice versa.
