    Regional Marketing Specialist Interview

    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 1 day. I interviewed at Archstone (Oakland, CA) in August 2011.

    Interview

    I had a 30 min phone interview with the internal recruiter. The interview consisted of asking simple questions about my background and about the company. She asked me if I knew who the company was and I noted yes I did do some reading about them, and told her what I found. She then was offended I asked her to share more information about the company with me that I may have not encountered.

    She asked me what I made in my past position. I deflected the question as I did not want to reveal a number first. Told her I was open, she insisted I told her what my last salary was. I asked if that was necessary for the interview and she said yes. I did share my range with her, and asked her what the position was budgeted for. She told me it's not policy to share that information. After that, I was appalled and clearly not interested working for this company or with a recruiter who was inexperienced and rude.

    Senior Accountant Interview

    Anonymous Employee in Englewood, CO
    Accepted Offer
    Positive Experience
    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 2+ months. I interviewed at Archstone (Englewood, CO) in August 2011.

    Interview

    Very formal interview process. I did a phone interview with a corporate recruiter and the director of corporate accounting. I then visited the office for a half day for another round of 5 interviews including HR, 2 accountants, the director, and the VP. Each interview was 30 minutes to an hour. The HR interview was very demanding by way of behavioral based questions. All other interviews were more about my technical skills and building rapport.

    Interview Questions

    • Tell me about a time that you had to deal with a difficult situation and be specific about the dialog.   1 Answer

    Negotiation

    I didn't negotiate and accepted the first offer. I would suggest anyone to negotiate as they offered my the exact amount on the bottom end of the salary range I provided. I then found out that the director I would be reporting to took it upon herself to negotiate another $2K in base and $1K in bonus. Always professionally and respectfully negotiate. If you go about it in this manner they will at worst probably say no and not revoke the offer.

    Positive Experience
    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 1+ week. I interviewed at Archstone (Arlington, VA) in July 2010.

    Interview

    Very comfortable and suprisingly pleasant experience. Not a fan of interviews, but who is. Regardless, this was a very painless experience. I felt very welcomed and enjoyed speaking to every Archstone associate I encountered along the way. I would recommend that every applicant review their website as in depth as possible.
