    Portfolio Manager Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate
    No Offer
    Positive Experience
    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied in-person. The process took 3+ months. I interviewed at Berkshire.

    Interview

    The hiring process was a bit longer than anticipated but that happens often as teams need to work around vacation schedules and such during summer months. Three rounds were conducted, with an increasing seniority of staff that I would meet with at each progressive stage.

    Assistant Project Manager Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Georgetown, TX
    No Offer
    Negative Experience
    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied through a recruiter. The process took 2+ months. I interviewed at Berkshire (Georgetown, TX) in February 2020.

    Interview

    Contacted by recruiter on property that was scouting for potential hires. The interview was scheduled for FaceTime and based on an upcoming property acquisition that was not complete. The recruiter was rushed. I was informed from the very beginning that I was her tenth interview that day and she was on a strict time schedule.

    During the interview she was on a head seat and the connection was dropped several times. The recruiter seemed irritated that I could not hear her question or that I had to repeat my answers. She was condescending several times during the interview. This company has high reviews and I was very surprised at the negative tone of the interview and the lack of respect given.

    The interviewer shared details of the upcoming property acquisition that was surprising to me. Yet, she was very unclear on possible start dates within even a thirty day period. I never heard back from the interview until reapplying and being declined for an interview when the job was reposted. Bad form.

    Positive Experience
    Difficult Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 2 weeks. I interviewed at Berkshire in September 2017.

    Interview

    I had a total of 3 interviews. My first interview was with HR. Her ultimate goal was to determine if I fit the Berkshire Culture and if my goals aligned with what the company was looking for. My second interview was with the Regional Manager, she wanted to make sure I would fit the property that I was applying for and that I would be able to handle any situation the Berkshire way. My final interview was with the Vice President. We not only spoke about the property and Berkshire but also who I am as a person. All three interviewers were so nice and upfront about what they were looking for. The first interview took about 40 minutes and the other two took a little over an hour.
