The process took 3 weeks - interviewed at Equity Office Properties.Interview Details
Had a phone interview with HR. It was very structured, because the interviewer was reading me questions and writing down my responses. All the questions were pretty basic though. The interviewer couldn't answer any questions I had about the job unfortunately.
Second round was at the office. I met with three people. First, the director, who filled me in on the type of person they are looking for and answered all the questions I had very truthfully. Some of the answers I was given surprised me, as they made the company sound unappealing. This person did not ask me any questions, which I found strange. The second person was pleasant and just asked some basic questions. They seemed very focused on having ARGUS experience. The third person I met really threw me off. Everyone was very pleasant but the last person was not. I feel as if this person had just been recently promoted to manager because they spent almost the entire time we were speaking bragging. This person mentioned that they were a manager 3 or 4 times within the 20 minutes we were meeting, and proceeded to brag about many things that did not even relate to the job. It was a confusing experience.
I was excited going into the interview process and generally had an okay experience, but was confused by the end of the process. One of the people I met with acted unprofessionally, but overall it was a very laid back process.Interview Questions
