    Vice President Interview Process Interview

    Positive Experience
    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 3 weeks. I interviewed at Colony NorthStar (New York, NY) in September 2017.

    Interview

    Someone in HR emailed me to set up a preliminary call to discuss my background and skills. She called on time and was very personable and professional. She then sent my resume to a hiring manager and was very responsive and accessible during the scheduling process. I met with a panel of high level professionals and liked them very much but ultimately they decided it wasn't a fit. The HR recruiter was great as were the other interviewers.

    Application

    I applied online. I interviewed at Colony NorthStar.

    Interview

    Applied via internet; received email to schedule interview; the first scheduled call the talent coordinator never called; the rescheduled call was cxl'd at the last minute; the final straw was a third interview time and no call from the talent coordinator again. If this is how the company functions than I would stay far away which is what I told them and withdrew my application.

    Financial Reporting Manager Interview

    Negative Experience
    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied through a recruiter. The process took 2 days. I interviewed at Colony NorthStar (Los Angeles, CA).

    Interview

    Interview was scheduled immediately after submission of resume through a recruiter. I was informed that HR does not give access to Hiring Mgrs. Later found out why. Despite a stellar professional/educational background they asked me stupid journal entry/excel questions. Both interviewers provided jaded/contradicting structure of departments. Condescending and Unprofessional individuals that may know how to be analytical but lack mental aptitude to analyze people.

    Was asked typical work schedule 50-60 hours a week. During deadline can well exceed 60 hours. Yikes!
